Gerard's Regiment of Foote Ready For Battle!
With the exception of a few final touches (eyes, and some final highlighting) these Cavaliers are ready to face off against those rebellious Parliamentarians! Every time I finish a new unit of these big fellows (40mm) I get excited about playing again....and despite the expense of the figures a few go a long way in making the units seem large.
I also followed Phil Olley's great method for painting real cloth flags and it works really well but takes just a bit of patience and practice to make it look good. I topped the pole off with a finial casting from Front Rank> I think one of the most fun aspects of ECW/30YW gaming are the colorful standards.
Also during this holiday, I'm currently redoing all my ECW turn initiative cards that I use with my preferred rules (Victory Without Quarter) and hopefully soon will post a link to the pdf file of the cards for my readers to download.
