15mm ECW army from a friend.

A project that had a lockdown start. A great friend who moved to France a good decade ago to very successfully restore mandolins , was selling on some stuff. Among it, an ECW army bought some point in the late 90s for DBR but not really used. It was undercoated, had the odd bit of paint here and there (which I have kept to honour his schemes), but apart from that it was a blank slate. With the advent of ReG, MeG's Renaissance spinoff, and a competition at Boards and Swords in November, for which I am also painting Manny's Catholic Germans , who was I to say no! Quick converstation with Iain at Flags of War , and he kindly rescaled some ECW banners for me too. The bulk of the army is painted, just needs basing and standards adding now. First four pike and shot units. The greys I admit, I was planning a 10mm ECW force, but getting these classics on table was even more satifying. Blues (I know the pikes are a bit wibbly, but being almost thirty years old, it's okay

28mm Commission - 40mm Hinton Hunt based up.

 A lovely chap cannot paint any more, so he has asked me to paint items to help finish his collection. I take NO credit what so ever for the amazing paint job Tom put in on these 40mm Hinton Hunt Hussar figures. My role in these is simply basing them up to show off their glory. Where possible, I tried to save Tom's Hinton Hunt labels and reattach them to the display bases   They really are magnificent   Mixed bag for Tom this time, which finishes * off most of the 7YW for him.
