So let's travel the world!
The first batch of the entry are more 10mm ECW from the Lancer Miniatures range, this time in the form of a complete infantry regiment. Mixed pike & shotte, the regiment is supported by a demi-culverin for some extra deterrent towards any opposing forces.
I really like Kieran`s sculpts, and think this was one of those "gems" sometimes hidden on Kickstarter. With more and more big companies using Kickstarter as their pre-order platform, there are those small operation on it as well which at times churn out lovely figures for a good price, or even some oddities that you just want to have.
The pikes themselves are metal rods, and I can say first hand they hurt like hell when you accidentally put your hand on them...
The second part of my entry is this 28mm Chariot from the Shang-Zhao range of Curteys Miniatures (seems like the first time one gets posted, I just had to add the tag X-D ), now under 1st Corps banner. I think I bought this almost 12 years ago or so, and I don`t actually know why anymore, probably some fantasy project or such.
But as we get older, our interests start shifting, and I bit the bullet that I will be building a Shang dynasty force for Mortem et Gloriam (well, if their Chinese army lists re-appear on the site, then I know what to order because while they are in the index, the actual lists aren't in the pdf's) and try and introduce those rules over at my club.
I really like the facial expression on the charioteer to be honest, he has that whole "umpf, you posh dandy" look next to the noble...
So points-wise, if I counted correctly, this should mean for this week:
31 infantry models in 10mm (12 pike, 16 shot, 3 crew) @ 1 point each
1 crew handled cannon in 10mm @ 2 points
1 vehicle in scale 28mm @ 15 points
& 2 28mm crew @10 points
This should further add a nice 58 points towards my challenge goal... and keep me on schedule.
Thanks for watching!
Another great entry Tom. Its great to see some historical figures from you. I do like the 10mm ECW figures, they look excellent and the pikes do look very sharp, I'm sure I can see blood on the top of a few???
I've never bought any Curteys Minis before, they too look really nice figures, shame it took 12 years to get the chariot painted though. Every gamer has a few of those older hidden gems locked away in a box somewhere!!
I've changed your version of points, you forgot to add the 2 crew on the chariot, so your total is 58!!
