The Neville clan 15mm War of roses

Richard Neville Earl of Warwick  and his brother John Neville Marquess of Montagu.


And here is the leading Lancastrian nobles of the conflict in 1471.

from left to right: The fierce tempered Edmund Beaufort Duke of Somerset ; The She Devil Queen Margaret of Anjou : and the king maker Earl of Warwick.

And finally a couple of cannons of Warwick and Somerset.

Its nice to finally get some painted miniatures posted, besides the figures to paint  i have had to draw up a huge flag sheet and paint them too, time consuming by its self!

  2. Hats off to you for being able to manage Richard Nevilles Arms in 15mm! I have had abortive attempts at painting them in 25mm in the past! The figures and flags are superb.

    1. hello Nathan, thankyou. Have you given up on the Italian wars!

    2. Not given up on but in abeyance until now. I've been distracted by 1/1250 waterline ships and WW2 Normandy and also a bit discouraged by our hopes of renewed production of of Venexia Italian Wars being so cruelly dashed. Those new figures from Blue Moon though have been a wake-up call: I'm actually painting some Italian Wars figures now and have more in the queue.

      On the other hand, I've always liked the 15th Century and your Burgundians and now WotR figures are very tempting :-)

    3. Great to hear. Legio Heroica's Swiss and Burgundians are a splendid range, and good solid sculpts too!

    1. Thankyou Iain, the 1471 campaigns have taken ages to paint, just glad i didnt go for the Wakefield, St Albans and Towton period, i would only be a third of way into it!!!
