I finally got around to taking a group photo of my War of the Roses Burgundians today. This army was in my queue for about 4 years, unbuilt. It was basically a trial army (4 boxes total), so I did not purchase everything that I normally would for a large force. The infantry and missile troops need to be increased substantially, by at least another box. There are two cannons left in my queue to complete as well. They would count as Elf Ballistas in Oathmark.
I decided to base these on 25mm squares, specifically for Oathmark. However, in hindsight I wish I had based them on 20mm instead. It would have made them easier to use in KoW and older Warhammer editions. The thing with bases is that you can always increase unit footprint via using special movement trays. However, you cannot downsize as easily. Oh well.
So, that is it. My first foray into historical miniatures. In hindsight I should have done an easier paint scheme. Burgundians, with their white and blue livery and red diagonal crosses were much more challenging than I bargained for. Anyway, it was a good learning experience. I now know how to build these kits and what and what not to do. I could have done a lot more color on the knights....that is my biggest disappointment. I am on the fence on whether to keep them or sell them off. I need another 40 or so troops (infantry and archers) to truly finish the army off for Oathmark. Sadly, as it is, the force is far too small for Kings of War. I still have two cannons left to paint up. Not sure if I will do them in Burgindian colors or not.
The Perry plastic kits, IMO, are superb. There are innumerable build options and the level of customization is huge. Plus, they are cheap when compared to comparable fantasy kits on the market. If you want a realistic and large human army for historical or fantasy wargames, then look no further than Perry Miniatures.
