    ... and here they are; the Moss Troopers:



    From the Bloody Miniatures Website:
    "A rapacious gang of brigands, freebooters, broken men, or discharged and destitute soldiers turned to banditry and ambuscades."


    Just like the last batch, great faces and easy to paint.


    They quite look like 17th century gunslingers.


    I love this guy; looks like a duellist.


    I imagine this guy is the leader; he's kind of charismatic with his well maintained moustache.


    Here they are earning a living.

    My final entry of the AHPC campaign was a command stand for King Charles I.



    I broke what some seem to consider a cardinal rule of building wargaming units and used figures from different manufacturers here (5 in fact!). The sergeant with the halberd is from Avanpost, the Cuirassier with the standard is from Horcata, King Charles is from Warlord Games, the dismounted Cavalry officer from Bicorne Miniatures and the horses by Front Rank.



    The Horcata figure comes with a saddle sculpted to the rider as they were designed for the Front Rank horses but I had to sculpt a saddle for King Charles:



    Aside from Charles' large head (seems historically appropriate...) all the figures fit together well enough . The King's standard is from Wargames Designs.



    I chose to paint Charles' horse as a dun like Van Dyck's 1637/38 portrait of him as opposed to a grey as in the 1633 portrait in part because the grey is an almost exact replica of other mounts in Van Dyck's other portraits of European nobility so was probably his default portrait steed.

    Saddle looks factory and i like the horse as well, nice sturdy buckskin. Not familiar with AHPC but good luck.

    Thank you IM. The AHPC is a fun motivator; you set a points target and try to meet it. It is all about getting that lead/plastic mountain whittled down not about quality. Lots of comradery and encouragement.

    Wow, really nice work Cod. Love that the inspiration is coming from the real narrative, and historical art!

    Another batch of Bloody Miniatures ECW figures done.


    BM002 is The Forlorn Hope:



    BM003 is The Pistoleers:


    BM004 is the Dismounted Troopers (my favourite of the first wave);


    I have slight detour into 15mm Ancients ahead but after that it will be back to Bloody Miniatures and the second wave of releases.
