28mm ECW for Pikemans Lament

A lock down project.

These figures were given to me by Mark sometime during the 00s! A real mix of Foundry, Essex, Redoubt and who knows what else!!


Mort at Leighton Buzzard Wargames Club got me playing, after I won a copy of the rules at Rollcall last year.

24 points of Pikeman's Lament troops.

Not sure why Mark - fiercely Royalists until late - had Roundhead heavies...

Baron Barry Bickerdykes Big Blue Bonnetted Boomers  - elite shot unit, verterans of many campaigns.

Last week, while up at Battlefield Hobbies, I succumbed and bought myself the Rebel Fighters II boxed set.

These are a mixed bag of fighters and freighters, all in Rebel service. While not as iconic as the X, Y, A or B wings, anyone familiar with the Star Wars Exteneded Universe or Star Wars Rebels will still know these snubfighters.
