16th Century Irish

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

16th Century Irish

Post by Clibinarium » Sun Jun 30, 2013 9:02 pm

Some non-Warfare stuff for once, here's a look at some 15mm 16th Century Irish which I sculpted and painted for Khurasan. They were done about a year ago, but are only now being released so I am allowed to post them! Photos are very slightly out of focus unfortunately.

Great enemies for any Elizabethan army (which I am currently sculpting)

Cheers guys. It was a bit frustrating to know these were done and awaiting release. Like my work for Warfare I enjoyed doing them because of the local angle. Its an army I'd like to collect if I had the space, the time or the money.

I do find it a bit puzzling that the 16th Century isn't wargamed more. But then there was a time when the late 17th Century wasn't given much attention, but as we know that's changed now!
