These are six figures from the bills and bows box Perry miniatures made for the Wars of the Roses. Actually they shall serve as mercenaries during the Burgundian wars especially during Charles the Bold's siege of Neuss in 1474. I painted them to get used to the new historic period and the experiment with colours for medieval clothing and armour. Altogether excellent plastic miniatures which are a pleasure to assemble and to paint.
It's a eight or nine piece MDF kit which comes perfectly cut. It doesn't need much cleaning and is easily glued with super glue or PVA glue. A very nice piece by Martin and Diane which I painted without priming it. Since the MDF soakes up the paint this worked rather well. The hay load is a nicely cast resin piece which fits onto the cargo area very well. I didn't glue it to have the chance to use the cart with or without hay.
It's great to have you with us in the main 'arena' Stefan, even if it's for the last push to the finish.
You've done a lovely job on those billmen. I'm especially taken with your approach to their 'white' armour - very nice.
The hay cart is a great piece of kit. I have a couple of these as well and am always amazed at both their simplicity and utility on the tabletop. That being said I do need to get some of those removable 'hay loads' - brilliant stuff.
