STEEL BONNETS

Perhaps a misleading post title, as these are not Scots but my next Royalist Cavalry unit. They are however wearing one of my favourite sorts of helmet, the burgonet. Figures from a Call to Arms with Ensign Miniatures heads, and the officer (a great figure) is from Barbican Antiques in Plymouth who now manufacture the old Chota Sahib range (I think). I hope to paint them up to look like Sir Martin Lacey's troop in the old television series By the Sword Divided.


I have been sidetracked into painting some 1/72 figures for a change which can be seen off to the right of the picture for a scenario based on H P Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror.

  1. These look very fine - the van Dyke beards are nicely rendered. How's your garden in the wet West, drying out at all?
