Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

Here comes the Cavalry!

Got the first lot painted up: a group of men at arms allied to the Percys.

The first issue was to decide the colour palette. Livery didn't work like uniforms, of course - after all, each of the Men At Arms was likely to be a landed knight in his own right - but you want to try and tie the various forces together.

So with my Percys being kitted out in quartered red and black, I went with things on the red side of spectrum; red, purple and yellow. Overall I'm quite happy with how they came out. Proper photos will follow when I've finished the Nevilles, hopefully tomorrow.
