Work starts on second batch!

Hello.

Last summer, when on the baccus forum, Ruriagh announced the Towton project.  I was very keen to get involved, initially planning to add a contingent of my own to this great project, until i checked the dates.....

Unfortunately, being in Germany and with a very busy year in 2011, i realised i wouldnt be able to attend.  I did however offer to paint some of his "soon to be" massive collection.





So far ive painted two contingents for him, which can be viewed here on this blog.  I started painting the next batch today, after getting into the period itself and reading up on the battle.








So, a couple of weeks ago i recieved another parcel, containing a small lead mountain,  seen here on the left.

4 contingents in all, each containing 4 units.  I hope to have them painted fairly soon, but with a trip to the falklands and some time in wales coming up, it may take longer than id hoped.







I made a start today, and in the space of a mere 3 hours managed to get a complete contingent painted!!

Sir Edward Brooke of Holditch, 6th Lord Cobham, and his men.





I will post updates as and when i can, and as soon as they are all done, they will be in the post to sunny Yorkshire.  For banners and basing, thats Ruariagh's job!

Cheers
Steve

  1. Most excellent news, Steve. At that rate we could have you painting a whole army's worth! They look great in the picture. Can't wait to see them in the lead. ;-)
