Zippee, this is really an impressive look. Great outcome! I assume that the base sizes are for 15mm?

Thanks for that,
yes the ECW project is closed - some snagging left to do though (isn't there always! - in this case some decent weather and time to spray the whole lot with matt spray).

The 'waves' are the gallopers:
GA07 - Queen's Regiment - 00 by Zippee Jerred, on Flickr

trotters are a single line:
TR03 - Lord Molineux's Horse - 00 by Zippee Jerred, on Flickr

reiters two short lines:
RE02 - Nathaniel Fienne's Horse - 00 by Zippee Jerred, on Flickr

massed reiters 36 figures in 4 ranks:
REM02 - Sir John Hippsley's Horse - 00 by Zippee Jerred, on Flickr

Currently I've been side-tracked by a heap of D&D 28mm stuff, then I need to complete the huge FIB 15mm Hellenistic kickstarter that arrived - made a start with the agema phalanx but that's the tip of the iceberg Smile

After that I'll return to 10mm Baroque with either eastern armies (Polish/Lithuanian and Ottoman) or early TYW

Yeah they look great. I'm new to 10mm the idea of playing around with the basing like this is very appealing. My ECW project has been put on the back burner for now. 15mm Napoleonic's got in the way (that's a black hole) 28mm D&D ? sounding very retro Smile hehehe .....well my D&D stuff is all 80s Laughing

Yeah I've really rather fallen for 10mm, easier and more rewarding to paint than either 6mm or 15mm. And give a good 'presence' when based on the 15mm frontages.

Hah I did 10mm Napoleonics - only a small ZPM involved in my case
Austrian Fusiliers Regiment - IR 19 IR Alvintzy by Zippee Jerred, on Flickr

French Hussars 1809 - 6th Regiment 02 by Zippee Jerred, on Flickr

It's only the huge investment in 15mm ancients that keeps me in the 15mm pool to be honest. If I could stomach starting over, well - no. No! Don't go there.

Whilst some of my 28mm RPG collection (the reaper, grenadier, citadel 3-part character, etc, etc) is extremely retro - the current stuff isn't. Well actually the otherworld stuff is retro but deliberately so - modern sculpts of 1ed monster manual pictures, cracking stuff Smile But the new Nolzer miniatures are really lovely and 5ed has definitely brought us all back to the table after many years of agnosticism.

10mm Napoleonic's is definitely the way I would go if I had my time again but like you I'm too far down the path with 15s now. These guys look great Zippee.
I've got a bit of a soft spot for D&D some of the first metal figures I ever bought were for D&D....still got them Smile
