More Claymore Castings Fabiness

I've nothing 'in colour' this time but some great news none the less. I've just been sent the latest Claymore Castings Newsletter and in it we have the latest archers, which will do for both the Scots at Otturburn and the English too. I'll be using quite a few of them with my HYW English anyway as well as the Scots at Verneuil who had a large contingent of Archers in amongst their soldiers.




Also, making an appearence on David's Saxon Dog Blog are more dismounted men-at-arms. Though they are titled as English they would do for any nation in North West Europe in the late 14thC onwards. Feast you eyes below:













And finally something one could bash the bishop with ;O)

English Battle Base 3

It's been a good while since I last posted anything of any real substance here on La Journee so it is with great pleasure that I can now post the third English Battle base!

To be honest all the hard work had been done, the miniatures painted and based, all there was to do was to add an the Flag of St. George and that was it. The figures had been sitting around for an age but I still just couldn't find the time to paint the banner. Funny really when you think of all the miniatures I have painted of late, though granted, mostly for other people. Anyway, the problem was eventually solved when David Imrie of Saxon Dog fame sent me a few banners with some of the beautifull Claymore Castings miniatures. Thanks David! The banner was made by Flags of War and they will be doing a full range of banners and standards for the Scots and the English for the Battle of Otterburn. 

So, without further ado.....









More to come soon..... can't have too many archers now can we?
