Flodden

Post by dashing blade » Fri Aug 30, 2013 4:01 pm

Could any of you kind gents out there help me with a figure problem. Im looking for suitable figs for the battle of Flodden. at a pinch i can use Perrys W.O.T.R and some of the European stuff. But 1513 highlanders!!!! is proving very tricky. Any help much appreciated :)

Purely a guess, but have you looked at 'Claymore Castings' 1388 highlanders?

Another, probably better, thought would be Warlord Games ECW Irish Brigade...

Dixons make a very small range of 25's for Flodden, they'll give you an idea of what figures to use. Take a look here,

If there was ever a crying need for an accurate and complete range it is Flodden Scots in 28mm. The Assault Group will be doing them in due course but it may be some time.

Pendraken do a nice range in 10mm, though- and it works out cheaper!
