Elizabethan Wars - English Calivers
With the Spanish and Irish forces completed to a level that I can put on a viable scenario, I wanted to kick start the English Trained bands to go up against the Irish in the Plantation Wars, The Spanish in the Netherlands or an alternative universe where the Spanish land in England or the victims of the Black death rise from their graves.
These fit the bill on all counts.
Technically there was little in the way of uniforms in the Elizabethan Army, but I wanted them to mix well up against the Spanish who I had applied a uniform approach to the painting scheme, there is a colour plate in the Osprey Armada book that has a figure in a similar colour scheme.
All Calivers and Musketmen from Foundry with an officer figure from Warlord Games.
