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!

Bluemoon releases 15mm Landsknechts.

Bluemoon have released a rather nice looking Italian wars range. With the sad news that the venexia italian wars range has pretty much gone the way of the Dodo along with Sgt Major miniatures, this new range is welcome news to me at least. Looking at the images they appear to be very nice sculpts for the scale with plenty of variety.
  At the moment i am commited to finishing of the Lancastrian war of roses army(of which photos will follow soon) followed by my pile of testudo miniatures ECW which have waited attention toolong, but thanks to bluemoon a return to the Italian wars in the near future is assured.
