ECW Interlude (2)


I now have quite a backlog of stuff, so expect a flurry of posts over the next few days. Before I dash off into town to book the flights for my next trip to NZ, here is Bicorne Miniatures' "prisoners" pack. These are nice sculpts, although the figures are very large. The surrendering officer measures 33mm from his foot to the top of his head. The walking wounded are the same size, the other figures a bit smaller. From the faces I suspect these are Alan Marsh sculpts. I'm going to paint the Perry Miniatures casualty pack soon and I'll post a size comparison pack - the differences are substantial. Size issues apart, these are the kind of figures I enjoy painting the most and they were fun to do. I deliberately wanted to add lots of mud and blood splatter - if these chaps have spent the day fighting they are not going to look their best. I suspect I've also been influenced by watching series 2 of "Dexter" (surely one of the best shows on tv at the moment)...

6 figures. Painted July 2009.

Lovely as ever giles... I thinking of making my foray into the Great Northern War outside of my WAS/SYW/AWI

Very nice, as always. They'll certainly add some character to your table.

Cool, plain cool.
Love those little diorama bits, adds character and story to every tabletop.

Cheers

I seem to remember playing a very enjoyable ECW skirmish game about 10 years ago. I forget the rules, but I think they had "Flanders" in them somewhere. These figures would be particularly good for such a game.

Wonderful!
