Medieval Irish IV/58 – 2.2Edition

Medieval Irish mounted elements – back to converting

June 21, 2015


It would have been great if RedBox had issued horse to go with the foot, but I only need seven figures anyway. There are two LH elements, which means four figures, and a cavalry option, which is three. But the LH and the Cav are completely different. For LH, I need barefoot, javelin-hurling, tunic-wearing minis […]

Medieval Irish (foot) afoot

June 14, 2015


So, one week of indoor painting. Here’s where I’m up to. I’m happy with the bases (Psiloi are done) which suggest the rich emerald green of bogs, rather than forest, which is their home terrain. I have not a single mounted mini for this army, but I have ideas for where I can find some.

Finished BUA pieces

November 24, 2012


This army is designed to morph with Amorites and Old Babylonians, and its Psiloi are pretty generic too. The Mitanni strength is in its Light Chariots: it has 6 including the General element. Foot were [most likely] drawn from a number of subject people that inhabited the area once conquered by Amorites. These people also […]

Assyrians v Bedouin (2)

May 2, 2011


In the reverse match of game one, Assyrians got to defend their own arable ground. At last, a chance for the mighty HCh to sweep the impudent raiders away! Or not, as it turned out. The Assyrian position was a road smack down the middle, a steep hill on the right half-way to the enemy, […]
