Ancients - Hellenistic Command

A command stand for 2nd/1st century BCE Mediterranean/near eastern types.

Victrix figures, LBMS transfers for flags and shields. Need to work on my shield transfer technique a bit; not entirely happy with these.

Nobles for Wars of the Roses

Here are some pictures of nobles for WOTR. All Perry; mostly from the plastic Men at Arms box with some metals. These are the guys with coats of arms on their surcoats (were they called that in the 15th century?).

Designs are hand painted for viewing at wargame distances.

First Lancastrians:

Cortenay - Earl of Devon Devon
Henry Percy - Earl of Northumberland
John De Vere - Earl of Oxford
Stafford - Earl of Buckingham
Lord Greystoke
James Butler - Earl of Whiltshire
Lord Scales
The Yorkists:
Lord Grey of Ruthin
William Bonville
Lord Ferrers
Richard Neville - Earl of Salisbury
Thomas Stanley
Lord Fauconberg
Not sure I have all of those 100% accurate but it gives me some guys to hang my bills and bows around.
WOTR collection has just over 400 figures now.

ECW - Orange Regiment

Getting back into ECW with the "For King and Parliament" by Miller and Brentnall.

Painting up a regiment of Orange coats for parliament.

This is the command stand.

Interesting experiment getting two shades of orange (coat and sash) on the drummer. Obtained by layering more pure orange on the sash.

Bicorne miniatures.

Most paint is Valejo and Army Painter. For flesh and leather I used Foundry triads.

Flag is paper with tin foil stiffener; hand painted. The cords are cut from the lance style flagpole in the Warlord ECW plastic cavalry set.
