    1513

    I continue to work on units for my 1513 game, above some Kern from QRF and below some Mirlton Stradiots.

    1513

    I’m also converting some Roundway English Knights onto Kings Spears.  This involved making plumes with Green Stuff.  I did two sorts as you can see in the pic below.  It’s fairly straight forward, for the tall plume just stack and flatten the requisite number of balls of Green Stuff, etching as you go.  For the horse plumes, make the shape and etch and add them one by one.

    I’m having trouble uploading the pic but will update as soon as possible, bear with me.  A big thanks to Mike who took the time and trouble to sort this.  You couldn’t ask for more.

    Anyhow if you’re interested there is more on my blog.

    Very good!

    I was just about to start quibbling then (not with the painting or conversions – they’re great  – the Kern).

    I have some QRF Kern and they aren’t like those – and then I remembered, the ones I have are from the Elizabethan Irish range not the Tudor range and they don’t have shields/bucklers/targes, whatever.

    Thanks Guy.

    Yes, the QRF Queen Elizabeth’s Irish War Range, what to say.  Conceptually it’s brilliant, the clothing and armament are just right but the actual figures, while full of character, are pretty rough in my opinion.  I bought two whole armies way back when Cameron owned the range, most of them have never seen paint.

    The QRF Tudor Range Irish are mainly good, not enough helmets or targes among the Kern and some of the swords are a bit short but overall I like them.  The clothing is right and the figures have style and verve.  There are no pike or shot which limits them a bit for the later period.

    On the subject of QRF they will shortly be releasing more Scots possibly for the Flodden period so we might see some mailed Highlanders in the mix.
