Perry WotR Cannon Completed + Henry VI and Entourage Rebased

This cannon and crew are the last of an order I placed a month or so ago. They are liveried in Murrey and Blue to represent the House of York - particularly Richard III. This metal set was a freebie included in an order of 3 boxes of WotR Infantry.
The Battle of First St Albans didn't have any cannon, or handguns, as far as I know. They will be used in the Bosworth game.
In addition to the artillery, the previously painted Henry VI and entourage were rebased. The capture of these figures will be a major victory in the First St Albans game.
On the king's left is the Duke of Buckingham; Queen Margaret flanks the king's right. I should add that these figures were a prize from a giveaway contest Anne O'Leary held a fews years ago on her blog.
 
With the cannon and crew set all of the WotR figures have been painted.

    1. Thank you very much, Jonathan. The Royals were the only figures from the old WotR collection I kept - no way I'd part with them as they were such a kind gift from Anne. Warm Regards, Dean

  6. Very nice Dean, your rate of output is astounding, it takes me around 12 months per project at the moment. What's next? Regards HGA.

    1. Thank you very much, HGA. Seems I've managed to still retain some of my OCD when it comes to painting, lol! I think I will get another box of Foot knights to beef up the Bosworth game. Warm regards, Dean

    1. Thanks, Iain. Besides WotR battles proper,I suppose some skirmishes took place in France in 1475, with Richard commanding Edward's "Invasion " force. Regards, Dean

  11. Quick and beautiful - not words that are often synonymous in the world of miniature painting, but both apply here.
