We've added a few extra troop types to our Elizabethan range! Commissioned by Pendraken Forum member d_guy and sculpted by Phil, these provide some handy extra options for the later 16th century period in Ireland.
"The figure styles are somewhat of a compromise and while they are typical for Ireland from 1570 – 1600, they are usable at least back to 1500. This means that to the most knowledgeable a few anachronisms creep-in for a few of the figures and for these I take full responsibility. The jackets (ionar) changed in style significantly over the 16th c and I wanted figures that could be fudged a bit with painting. I also wanted to be able to use these figures to represent Highlanders in the same period. The Gallowglass easily fit the bill and we have added folded 'plaids' (cloaks, mantles) which can be painted in a tartan pattern if one wishes. Likewise, many of the new figures can represent 'Redshanks'."
