Perry 28mm Medievals

Wonderfull bods these...I really like the look of  them...the fun bit being the multi-parts allowing seemingly endless combinatios of heads, arms and weapons. I haven´t decided yet how I´m going to base them yet.
They are all suitably dressed and equiped for the WotR period...but I won´t paint them up in any of the liveries used at the time for a couple of rasons. I like the look of "generic" medieval armies...the possible mix of colours and styles...this will also allow me to add bods from other manufacturers and I got away from painting ancients becuase of the "uniformity"...particually the romans...although I love the look of a full legion..
A comparison of a perry archer and a Zvezda one. The perry is 28mm and hte zvezda one 25.5...even taking into account that I´ve taken a dreadfull pic at a bad angle (ignore the ruler) the perry bod is obviously WAY bigger than the Zvezda one

  1. Nice work Paul. I'm thinking about doing some Medieval figures as a break from my normal WW2 stuff.

  2. They're nice but please no more bow strings, they make Ray's stuff look inadequate.

  3. There's no getting away from the fun of a multi-part kit when the patience is there and the creative juices are flowing. Those strings really are amazing.

  8. Sweet! I love how they allow a wide variety so it does not look like a chorus line.. Great paint as always.

    Cheers

  9. Very nice painted figures Paul!

    My experience with larger figures is that they need more attention on the details. Did you have that feeling to?

  10. I loved painting mine too- the variety of figure poses possible is stupendous! - the Mercenaries pack is a lovely addition to the range too (drool-drool!)

  13. Fantastically dynamic poses, which I know can be tricky to pull off after building a few hundred multi-pose Vikings and Saxons. And well paibnted as always mate, great stuff!

    And I've been hankering to do some HYW skirmishing too...

  14. Those dropped tanks are DIY multi-part kits. Looking forward to how TAL deals with that, since then I found an M113, a Crusader, a Bismarck and maybe another tank either an M60 or M1 that could use attention.

    It could be the scale difference can be used for David and Goliath situations and also Frederick's dad had Giant Grenadiers. I have also had to fight bigger guys in person, and they were not the same size.

    Paul check TMP Blogs of War for lengthy answers for some of your questions about b gger.

  15. Nice work once again Paul, love the detail with the bow strings. I dont think I'll go that far, gluing & painting is enough for me.

  17. Great stuff Paul. I see you are being seduced by the lure of 28mm...
