Latest 15mm Ancients Added To My Collection
Project Lead Mountain started out as my grand plan to finally clear out all of my unpainted metal for my ancients that I have had hanging around for the last 20 years. As is always the case I had grand plans to create this and that army but they ended up languishing unstarted in six boxfiles. I now only have one boxfile of what is in effect DBx Book 2 scrap which are not worth bothering with at the moment. I never bothered with DBx Book 1 and I have finally cleared all of my DBx Book 3 metal apart from a bag of round shielded types which I will dispose of which just leaves my DBx Book 4 metal left for Project Lead Mountain. Though I must confess I still have a load of Indians left to paint which will become part of my Arab Muslim collection and possible even kick start a proper Muslim Indian army one day.
So onto Project Lead Mountain and the pictures of what I have managed in the last two weeks.
|Roundway RKB11 Burgundian Petardiers|
These excellent castings from Roundway are not really Petardiers as they are throwing clay pots overhead with incendiary devices. I could not find any other company that makes them and I had to buy a bag of eight figures. Its annoying really when they only appear in two DBx army lists, War of the Roses Yorkists and Later Burgundian and then each list uses just a single element of Irr Ps X. I painted them all up as Burgundians and will be selling off at least two of them as they are surplus to me needs.
|Minifigs 482X Mercenary Pikeman|
|Minifigs 481X Flemish/Ordonnance Pikemen|
As with all of my purchases the label on the packet is only a guide and these are now part of my Swiss army and will be used as Imperialist or Mercenary pikemen or can be used for my Low Countries army if I require very late equipped figures.
|Rebased Roundway Late Medieval Archers for use in my Condotta army Figure Code now long forgotten|
|Spare Old Minifigs Archers rebased as Psiloi as you can never have enough Later Ps|
|Rebased mixed Essex? archers|
|Rebased Minifigs archers codes unknown|
|Newly painted Minifigs archers inspired by the Livery of Jasper Tudor|
|Rebased Roundway English Longbowmen possibly code RKE08|
|Old Minifigs rebased together as they were all painted with English tabards.|
Some of the figures above will be appearing on EBay in due course as they are surplus to requirements.
