Peterpig 15mm Wars of Roses.

Well here is the first Peterpig Wars of Roses miniatures painted, the start of my new 15mm venture!
  I plan to do some men at arms bases first, and have started with Edward IV retenue. The flags are the amazing Petes flags, shame he does not have a fuller range of WotRs flags, so future ones may be freezy water.
  I put some time in research on WotR figures and liked the look of the PP, and had read up some good reviews of the figures so cautiously ordered a couple of packs, just in case i didnt like them.
       I need not have been so cautious, the packs arrived and they are delightful little castings, very fine sculpts with nice details, well posed, and look to be made from a good quality metal. Needless to say i have made a larger order of Piggies!
   The castings are very clean, and the metal is not soft, bendy or brittle but very hard, the flag poles are very sturdy, which is great, saving time removing them, drilling holes in hands and inserting a steel wire. Most Recommended!!!
  Impetus rules  have a good basing system, the large 80mm frontages are great to add a bit of diarama and there is no limit to the number of figures you can put on the base( thats the general idea i get anyway), so Impetus basing is the order of the day for these WotR figures.

  1. Brilliant work, thus far! I agree, Impetvs basing provides much flexibility and an opportunity for producing a pleasing presentation. Do you have a post on how you achieve your armor effects?

    1. Thankyou Jonathan, the armour is any dull silver, then a blue wash, and i go round the armour edges with Vallejo black wash, then high light the armour with vallejo silver or army painter shining silver!

    1. Oh please do Pete, you make the most beautiful flags and it would be great to be able to furnish all future WotR figures with them!
