AHPC VII Donnybrook - Woodland Indians with Muskets

Can't believe that this is Don't throw a 1's 600th post!
And for post 600, what better to have than 12 Perry Miniatures Woodland
Indians with muskets!
They were my 7th entry into the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge earning me 
60 points, pushing me up into the top 30 for the first time!
Only just though, but I'm very happy with 29th place!

I've used a different flesh tone for these 12 First Nation, which I think works
a lot better than the previous tone. I've used Vallejo Saddle Brown, which has
a redder hue and in my opinion works better.

AHPC VII Donnybrook Pioneers/Sapper

For my 6th entry into the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, you'll all be
surprised that I've gone all Donnybrook again??


I've been beavering away getting some Pioneers or Sappers or just plain workmen painted up.
The first 6 figures plus equipment are not Nine Years War figures (Shock Horror!)
They are infact a lovely ECW set from Bicorne Miniatures, that'll cost you only £8
to buy unpainted. I've painted them up in a variety of colours, so they could be for
either side in my Donnybrook skirmish games.

The second set of 10 figures are from Reiver Castings, they are painted up with the green 
troos and stocking for Kirke's regt. But once again could be used for any side during the war.
They could even be added to a Civilian Mob, or added to other troops to make a Rebel unit for Sedgemoor.

Lastly, are 3 figures and some equipment from Dixon Miniatures.
The Engineer from a previous entry is also included in this pack.

And here they all are in a group shot.
19 figures, 2 wheelbarrows, 2 barrels, piles of wood and a discarded coat.......
 Miles my Monday Minion gave me 100 points for this collection giving me a grand
total of 290 points, lifting me up the charts to 52 place!

I've added the Pioneer Engineer in this pic, he was entered into the Challenge last month
and is included in the pack from Dixon.

AHPC VII Terrain Home Bonus - Protect our village

Another difficult bonus round for the 7th Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge.
"Terrain Home"
After a few days pondering I came up with this "Protect our village"
I had quite a few Militia type figures, armed with farm weapons and lots of scenery bits and bobs
So putting them together to form a defended village cira 1685 during the
Monmouth Rebellion, seemed the easy job?

The figures are from Reiver Castings Monmouth Rebellion range.

To enter a vote into the Challenge click here. There are 29 entries, vote
 for your favourites.

All the buildings and terrain are from the Evil Umpire von Postie!

The eagle eyed among you should spot Winston the Bulldog, by his masters side
From Warbases animal collection.

Along with 4 other Warbases dogs waiting to chew the ankles of the Earl of Feversham's troops!

I wouldn't want to try and shift a barrel that size?

So in this entry there are 12 Militia/Villagers
5 Hounds of Death!

And all these bits and bobs!

3 x Large Barrels
4 x Medium Barrels
3 x Small Barrels
30 x Smaller barrels
4 x Box, Barrel & crate pieces
2 x Sack Boxes
4 x Single Sack Boxes
4 x Wooden Boxes

Not sure how many pints I'll get for these???
