Lockdown day God knows what; Anyway because of the weather, snow and frost and other nasties I was able to get on with some painting. I was determined to finish the commanders for my small? Wars of the Roses contingent. Again these were in the main, Grenadier Miniatures with a couple of Perry commanders thrown in.
One of the nice things about the digital world is occasionally one gets in contact with likeminded people, wargamers seem especially susceptible to getting in contact with other enthusiasts. Anyway the most excellent Iain Macmillan kindly sent me some Donald Featherstone ephemera that I hadnt seen. I thought it would be nice to spread it about amongst potentially other Featherstone enthusiasts. It appears to be the original documents with amendments for Featherstone's account of the Battle of Poitiers 1356.
I hope it is of interest to some Hundred Years War and Featherstone fan. I certainly enjoyed it.
I especially liked the map that gives a clear idea about the set up for the game.
Lovely looking figuresReplyDelete
Thanks Neil, its only a little project but I am enjoying it.Delete
Nicely done with some very eye catching flags. Really interesting to see the Featherstone draft.ReplyDelete
Thanks Norm. Donald Featherstone was so damned prolific, he puts us all to shame.Delete
Looks like a draft copy, for sure. I wonder whose annotations and corrections are present? The map is terrific.ReplyDelete
Your figures are lovely, Robbie. The Foundry figures remain some of my favorites and your brushwork is superb.
Thanks Johnathan. It came from the Featherstone papers when he was clearing everything out.He was a very sensible wargamer and knew when it was time to downsize.Delete
There are some really fine figures there Robbie, top notch brushwork! I'm sure the Featherstone enthusiasts out there will enjoy the offering too.ReplyDelete
Thanks David. Im looking forward to coming across some of your early articles in pre editorial form.Delete
Very nice figures!ReplyDelete
Thank you John, only a few more to paint up.Delete
More great looking commanders and some fine units Robbie.ReplyDelete
Thanks James. Im a sucker for commanders and bits of ephemera.Delete
Great looking commanders, nice map and excellent landsknechts!ReplyDelete
Thanks Iain. I know the landsknechts are a bit of an anachronism but they were laid about in a box, so why not.Delete
That would certainly be a difficult position to attack... just as it was!ReplyDelete
One could always rely on the French to forget common sense to prove their honour. Write that in a wargames rule book.Delete
Lovely figures Robbie and thanks for sharing the Featherstone stuff...that is what you call a wargame map! I have a few hundred WOTR figures painted...i need to get them based and have a game...you have inspired me.ReplyDelete
Thanks Dave,get them based up.Delete
Robbie,cracking stuff-thanks for sharing.I actually still have a manual typewriter,but only use it to send out begging letters-yours is in the post!ReplyDelete
Good to hear from you John,been vaccinated yet? Keep up the good work.Delete
Robbie,next Thursday for vaccination at Newcastle Racecourse-rather than waste the journey,I've put the wife in the 1.30 race at 25:1-worth a 50p bet!!Delete
Wow, gorgeous units and great post!ReplyDelete
Thanks Phil, I do try.Delete
