A new Blog for a new Project

I am starting a new blog called TheBloodyRoses, it will be exclusively aimed at the early period of the Wars of the Roses from 1455 to 1461.
 The link is ThebloodyRoses
There will be nothing to report there for a few weeks,  the project is still formulating  and am still ordering the necessary miniatures and accessories needed, here is what I have so far:
The flexible Perry miniatures will be the main feature with Steelfist knights and Crusader miniatures fitting in nicely with the Perry sculpts. 
  I aim to go much further than just  a unit of archers or billmen neatly lined up, I have done all that before, and i really want to re create not just units but the characters and incidents from the period and i already have a few ideas!
 If anyone is interested in following just click on the link above, it can also be found at top right of main page.

    1. Thanks for the link, most helpful, and I gave in to temptation to order the Towton book too, i already have three books on the battle but yours looks far more indepth regards participants, cannot wait to digest it on arrival!

    1. Thanks Iain, I was going to do this 1455 to 1461 period in 15mm a year ago as a carry on to the Barnet and Tewkesbury armies I did in 15mm, but fast forward to 2019 and I really do want it in 28mm!

    1. A favourite of mine too Oli, a project like this was long over due.I have so many fleeting moments of interest in periods of history but The Wars of Roses has always been high
