Tudor bowmen

I have been inspired by Captain Blood, and Pat from his own blog site, Wargaming with the Silver Whistle to begin basing my skirmish models on 2p coins. I'll get in touch with those jolly chaps from Warbases and order some of the movement trays in the near future.

This is the third time I have based these particular bowmen and I am very pleased with the results. I hope there will be more to follow.


  1. Hi, just come across your excellent blog, you have done a wonderful job on the painting and basing of the figures and I look forward to seeing more.
    Thanks for the mention of my blog BTW.

  2. Greetings Blanc Sanglier! I too stumbled upon your blog from TMP. Nice work. Instead of Warbases, I'm wondering if you want to go all the way with your basing inspiration.

    Did you see this thread on LAF?

    But it's Captain Blood's link that really makes the idea sing:

    I've contacted James (Jimbibbly) who makes and sells the parts commercially.

    Food for thought. I look forward following your blog. We have very similar interests.

    Best regards,
