    Gendarmes

    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.

    Lovely work!

    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?

    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!)

    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.
