Paint Table Sunday - A strange collection of odments.....

An odd collection this weekend, I was hoping the Northstar order might have arrived but nothing from the postie yet. So an opportunity to clear the decks to make way for other projects.
I had these based up before Christmas and really needed to great them done rather than see them fall to the foot of Lead Mountain.

They have a largely Elizabethan/Thirty Years/Zombie War theme originally for planned encounters set during the Plantation of Ireland but more recently finding a home in the Elizabethan Zombie outings, I have added space markers for dice markers so they can double up as shock markers if necessary.


Redoubt Enterprises English Civil Troops but today playing the part of Spanish Troopers.
In Zombie Wars they can easily represent troops savaging water or wine from an empty village or looking to set a charge to blow the bridge before the dead can cross, the Spanish marksmen are from Foundry.


A wargames Foundry light cannon, to support either the English or the Spanish as they wage war on each other. I lovely piece of kit.


Run - The English are coming or is it the Undead?
I picked these up at Newbury several years ago, on one of those visits to a show where I had no real "list" but thought I could hardly go home with buying anything.
I have added placement markers for shock dice and figured they would do for a number of games, even fatigue markers for Saga if necessary.



The aftermath of battle or has he been bitten - anyway it has to come off !!!!
Again an impulse purchase thats taken years to go from blister to paint table, the challange is to get it on the table in a shorter time period.

Back to the SCW Project next.....

  3. If I remember rightly, a long time ago, your blog was one of the first that inspired me when I saw you using the shock dice holders/markers. It is good to see you are still turning them out.

    1. I guess it's just me Michael. Pleased to say they don't infect any other period.
      That would just be silly.

    1. Thanks Dean they get to serve in a few cross over periods, the Scottish boarders, bogs of Ireland or Spainish landings in England.
      Pike blocks next to try and add some normality to the madness.
