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.


  1. Wow, you don't hang around! Cracking job Sir.

    1. Thank you. Laid up today but will hopefully get the second lot done tomorrow.
