I had, courtesy of The Pike Man’s Lament, an epiphany on what to do with a bunch of figures from MY Miniatures that have been lying about here since Creon was a pup. They were too big to match any of my other stuff but I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of them
Anyhow I think they will match some Donnington figures from their unphotographed but praised Wars of Louis XIV range.
Very much a typical Gamers story I suppose, but with redemption, and you can read it on my blog if you like.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with these. 🙂
Of course, it’ll no doubt lead me to buy Pikeman’s Lament, you should really be getting paid commission by Osprey.13/09/2017 at 12:17 #71500
It’s a slippery slope alright! I’m just hoping the Donningtons match as well as I’ve persuaded myself they will.

OB a nice selection of figures, like Victoria I wait to see what you produce. They are not half bad little miniatures, like all wargamers never throw any wargame items away you never know when they will be useful. As to matching different figures from various manufacturers I do it all the time I just ensure the bases are all the same, that helps the figures to blend in with one an other, also if the figures are of slightly different height thin bits of cardboard on the shorter figures helps to fool the eye.13/09/2017 at 14:12 #71508
All true William, never get rid of anything wargamey it will eventually have its day. Completely agree about mixing and matching too.
I’m going to go with a Monmouth theme so that means making some scythe blades out of Milliput and mounting them on wire poles. For some reason a lot of manufacturers seem to confuse scythes with hand sickles, they wouldn’t if they had ever used one.

A bit of an update on this one. All good news the Donnington’s do indeed match and they’re very nice figures too.

Oh, how cool!30/10/2017 at 19:59 #75247
Thanks folks. I’m basing some of the Donnington cavalry up tonight they’re very nice too. I’ll take a pic tomorrow light quality willing.
I should say the price is good on these 60p cavalry and 30p foot per figure.

Just a question that has been puzzling me – why did you not carry on with the MY figures – they are still available aren’t they?

Yes, they are and I’ll probably buy a few more packs. I wanted as much variety as possible. Also while the MY Miniatures horses are fine for Dragoons they are a bit small for my idea of cavalry horses for this period. More or less I’ll use the MYs for Monmouth’s men and the Donnington’s for the King’s.

Some heavy cavalry done now.
