I’ve finished by first batch of Gendarmes for Lion Rampant 1513. These ones are Essex 15mm.
There are a few other bits and bobs for the same project on my blog.

Like the Border Horse on your blog too – we’ll let the comments about ‘light fingered’ go this once – the Farrishes were upstanding members of the Border community in Dunfriesshire I’ll have you know, and never once convicted of cattle rustling – sheep stealing yes – but that doesn’t really count does it?20/12/2017 at 14:05 #79432
Glad you like them Guy.
Minor misdemeanor surely. More animal rescue when you think about it. Like the RSPA but with lances. Mind you as part Armstrong I might be biased.
I was suprised by the relative lack of choice in 15mm for early Reivers, of course I only wanted small numbers so that excluded some manufacturers.

I started off with 15mm 16th century figures from Jacobite Miniatures – way back in the early 80s. I thought they were very good figures – I heard some doubts about other ranges but their Italian Wars stuff was lovely (rose tinted specs) – they went to Stronghold I think but I know he was ill and I lost track of them after that.
Since then I have concentrated on 28mm for the Italian Wars but looking at your work I am beginning to think I may have written 15mm off too soon. But then I don’t think I have your patience (or skill) to paint so well in that size! (Having said that I am currently playing about with 6mm Italian Wars stuff as well!)20/12/2017 at 15:40 #79439
I liked Jacobite a lot too, especially the Italian Wars range. Someone is slowly bringing them back into production let me find a link.
I moved to 15mm decades ago and the standard is mostly quite high in terms of figures, The other plus for me is storage space.
