I’ve fancied doing the United Irishmen Rising of ’98 for ever but other projects always took precedence-not least because of the lack of suitable 15mm figures. There was also the rules question most would have meant painting a couple of hundred figures in homespun drab colours. So it remained an aspiration and whenever Minifigs French Revolutionary War packs appeared at a bargain rate I snapped them up. They are lovely figures but I do like a bargain.
Meantime Irregular released some United Men and Khurasan said they would but didn’t. The project drifted until I realised that The Pike Man’s Lament would really work for a ’98 game. After a bit more cogitation and recognising the minimal outlay I bit the bullet and got to work.
You can see the rest on my blog if it’s of interest.

Interesting period…I keep buying then selling the Thompson uniform book. Figures seem to be the catch, but the Irregular line seems to take care of that,

I should say I cut the pikes down Darryl, the original length is the same as the standard bearer.

Very nice. I presume you’ve read Flanagan’s Year of the French?

Yeah and saw the RTE/ BBC TV drama series which was a good one. It seems to have disappeared now otherwise I’d buy a copy. Year of The French is a very good novel but my favourite from Flanagan is The Tenants of Time.
