Pendraken Miniatures Elizabethan Range
A quiet week on the painting front, but with the first proper outing on Sunday of the SAGA Irish a chance to put some paint on the recent Pendraken Miniatures.
As a figure range they have some good sculpts larger than the likes of Warlord and Perry Miniatures, A few have the sculpts have a touch of the "Gnome" about them.
Which prompted the question amongst a few of my fellow gamers at my local club whether you prefer the anatomically correct style or more caricature type designs.
I guess the market is large enough for both.....
(L to R) Kern with Caliver, Irish Caliverman in English Service. The English service figure has to be my favorite, the sculpt captures the conditions of campaign life in the field.
(L to R) Irish Light Horse, Irish Cavalry in Mail.
(L to R) Scottish Redshank, Irish Officer, Gallowglass.
(L to R) Ulster Kern, Horse boy with Javelin, Irish Kern with Bow.
