AHPC9 Donnybrook - Warfare Miniatures Militia




Surprise Surprise!!!
More Donnybrook shenanigans!!!
I bought these 50 Warfare Miniatures last year at The Other Partizan wargame show,
from Mr Beneath the Lily Banners Hilton himself. 


These are very multi-purpose figures and are something that were missing from
the late 1600's figure range. Dixon's and Reiver do have similar figures, but not in this many poses. And this is only the start, there will be more poses from Warfare minis!!


I mainly wanted these figure to use as Militia for Bacon's Rebellion or King Philips War in America,
but they will also be used as Rebels in the army of the Duke of Monmouth
at the Battle of Sedgemoor. And also they can be used for as either side in Ireland in the Boyne campaign.


There are 30 Musketeers and 20 Pikemen/Sythmen
I do have another 10 Pikemen to paint up, but I've only just bought some different 
weapons for them to hold, hopefully they'll be painted during the Challenge???


These 50 x 25mm figures earned me a very nice 250 points to add to my tally.


Which at the moment stands at 1309 points!
I had given myself a quite modest target of 1200 points this year, but 
I've got my mojo working at the moment, its just like the old days.
I can't seem to put the brush down. Which is getting the dreaded lead pile down
ever so slightly!


You too can buy these great figures from Warfare Miniatures, to add to your collections, or maybe even start a new one????   just click this link


I kept the palette very basic, keeping mostly to various shades of grey and brown
with the odd splash of colour here and there.


Once again I used the inking method on these figures, I think it worked perfectly, especially
 on the apostles and lighter coloured shirts.


And to finish a few pics of the back of the figures

    1. As they're militia, I thought muted colours would work best.
