Firstly a quick plug for this wargames event which I am attending. Last year Andy Callan produced a brilliant set of free rules aimed specifically at the Wars of the Roses. They were a giveaway supplement in the Wargames Illustrated which spurred [see what I did there] me on to collect a WOR army. Now there is an event inviting wargamers to a day of WOR battles against other keen wargamers but all in the name of fun. Apparently there is still a couple of places free. Peter Harris of Boards and Swords is staging the event and should anyone be interested then contact him via the shop website. Fancy, wargaming with like-minded enthusiasts!
Like others I've struggled these last few weeks with actually painting figures. I don't know if its a post Covid inertia or that the weather was decent enough to job around in my garden. Either way my painting has suffered and its not like I haven't got a few things to work on.
People should know that in order to pad out my ECW armies I am prone to buying up old and unloved figures from E Bay. I not only find it a good way to increase my output exponentially I have also found that some of the unloved figures are really well painted and deserve a new lease of life. Anyway I picked up three poorly painted/ unloved ECW regiments made up of old Minifigs. To be honest I do think the ECW ranges from Minifigs were pretty decent, yes in the main unhistorical and perhaps a bit too well equipped but I like the 'look' of them, very 'Cromwell' in style. [The film that is.]
