July

The 'plan';-
Use the stuff painted in June for a start on familiarization with 'Hordes and Heroes'.
Get some more stuff, 15mm Ottoman Turks, to widen the gaming scope.

The AWI got started, two continental battalions painted in the 'rough', now on hold in favour of other stuff.

All previous plans and intentions gone for nought.

Got some 10mm Landsknechts to try and tracked down OK figures for 10mm Reiters:
Painting looks fairly straightforward, so I'll give it a go.

Expanded the originals to:
With:
Spanish Mounted Arquebusiers.
Light Horse (well out of place, Turcopoles from Irregular, got 'em so may as well use 'em).
More Pikes.

10mm Tudor English (16th Century)

Same as the Scots, a re-visit though this lot a bit more varied as they'll have to last for most of the century.  Unlike the Scots, the English army went through some quite significant changes as the century progressed, ending up pike and shot with demilancers instead of bills and bows and chivalry. Mercenaries will feature, maybe even some Landsknechts added; we'll see.

Pendraken figures from across the ranges.
