I now have 1 of each of the three 1450-1500 plastic kits. It's going slowly but well. I am really enjoying the process and can highly recommend these 28mm kits. The products will be expanded with a light horsemen option released hopefully early in the new year. Awesome!

So far I have plenty of Foot Men at Arms dudes in the best full Plate Metal armour available and 12 Archers. Horses are well under way for at least 1 unit of 6 but I am yet to build the riding Knights.Beyond Lion Rampant this collection will easily expand out to an Army for use in Kings of War (or any other large unit battle game for that matter). You can make a HUGE variety of poses with the foot figures. I will build a mercenary crossbow unit as well. The European Mercenary box comes with plenty of Pavises as well for that upgrade option.
I haven't picked up a brush since I completed the Dystopian Mercenary fleets but I had a curious look on the Irresistible Force webstore (Australian shop) and was excited to see they had in stock some Winsor & Newton Series 7 brushes. You might be able to spot them in the photo above. I did not hesitate to get two more. They cost more than the average brush but I got one a long while back and it's been the best brush I have ever used and it's still going. It really needs a proper clean so a likely future purchase is some really good brush cleaning fluid.
Cheers for now from Brendon
