Finished a few more figures for the Elizabethan Ireland Project, see what you think.

Really nice figures. I love the richness of the colours your have used.

They look great. What range do the Perry Irish figures come from?

Very cool. Reminds me of scenes from the Hollywood melodrama, "Elizabeth and Essex." Not a lot of action, but the scenes of Errol Flynn and the English taking on Alan Hale and the Irish made me curious about this period of history.

Gotta love a peascod breastplate. Add a ruffled collar and short baggy pants and you would be da bomb in Elizabethan England! Cod piece optional…

Perry added Irish in their War of the Roses range, about 8 packs.

thanks for the comments as above the Irish are from the Ears of The Roses range and recently added, there are 6 packs i THINK, HOPING TO PICK THEM UPIN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

I thin it lends itslef to large skirmishes and raids.

It seems like the vision for Elizabeth's soldiers and indeed several armies of the age is one of muted, grey toned or earthy colors and different leather hues. This is in contradistinction of the bright, flamboyant, primary colors of the earlier Italian wars. Is that correct?

I think so yes, moist soldiers wore their own clothing much of which would be homespun, some (by no means all) might have a livery coat/waistcoat which would probably have washed out and faded fairly quickly. Officers and Gentlemen volunteers would have worn much finer clothing but agin seem to be less gaudy colours than the earlier period.
