New Wars of the Roses troops and a book.

Well the postie arrived today, and my order from Perry has arrived after eleven days, well worth waiting for too.

First up is the new American Civil War supplement for Black Powder. I have had a quick flick through and it is of a high quality with lots of photographs of beautifully painted minis on battlefields that ooze atmosphere. A good read over the coming days.



It came with this lovely 28mm sculpt of a Union officer tussling with a Confederate soldier over a regimental flag. I shall enjoy painting this.



On to the Wars of the Roses or Saga of Yolare. Enough light cavalry now to give the other two of the four main factions a unit in their livery, plus two units for lesser lords.



Four boxes of three 'Scurrers' in various poses, two of the boxes with lances at the charge.


Once box with lances upright.



One box of command.


Finally, two light cannon with crews.


That just about finishes all the figures I needed to complete this project. So an excellent haul, especially after the Montrose Irish recruits I received yesterday. I am going to be a busy boy in the coming weeks.

  1. What a great lil haul! I am looking forward to seeing that cannon on the field of battle. That should put a dent in the enemy armour! Also, is the BP supplement a hard back?!? I imagine it is a softy, but for some reason the pic above makes me think otherwise.

    Thanks for the update Ian. Looking forward to reading/hearing more. Onwards...

    1. The supplement is a soft back, but at 180 pages, a hard cover would have been better.

    1. Thanks Vincent, 28mm ACW is very tempting, I am trying to hold back, but weakening all the time lol.
