Hobby - Ogre Mammoths and Lancastrian Longbow

 Over the last week I have been getting on with a few projects that I am keen to get done over the next few weeks.

The first is to add a Mammoth to my KoW Ogres. I have the two GW Ogre monsters but both are on scenic bases and both are far too large to use in KOW. So to that end I purchased a box of the CMON "A Song of Ice & Fire" War Mammoths. You get two in a box for the wonderful price of NZD 90 incl post from Amazon.

I've based mine on a Monster Chariot base - 50x100mm - and started to paint it. They are very detailed and sturdy resin models. If everything goes to plan then I'll get it finished in the next week or so.

The other thing I have been doing is painting some of the Perry Miniatures "War of the Roses Infantry". I purchased two boxes which has given me 66 Retinue Longbowmen. These are been split into three groups - 24/24/18 - and are now being painted.

The intention is that they will give me three Lancastrian retinues that I can base - 22 elements - as opponents for my WotR Yorkists. 

Twenty plus years ago, at the Warlords, we fought a number of refights of the major battles in the conflict. My intention is to organise another series of these refights for later in 2022. Given the price of Perry plastics it is very easy to buy and paint up the required figures. 

In this case I have painted them in the liveries of Somerset, Northumberland and Exeter and will look to buy/paint some more as needed.
