Covenanters!

Dux Homunculorum actual here!


It has been a long time since I've done anything on our ECW project, but with Paul heading back to the same hemisphere soon it's time to get cracking. To get some runs on the board I've been painting Covenanter infantry, and nice and simple they are after the army of Republican Romans in 28mm I've been painting over the past few months.

I've altered my painting style on these little chaps compared to my last lot of English troops. I've generally gone for lighter shades and haven't used any washes. What do you think?

Oh and Paul - don't call them rebels. They're the forces of the Scottish government, right?!

  1. Excellent looking bunch. There's something very pleasing to the eye seeing massed groups of figures (even if they are tiny).

    1. We quire agree Matt, and thats why we went for 6mm in this case. We were after something a little different to our usual 28mm SAGA/Chain of Command etc

  2. Looking great massed for battle. Are these 6s or 10s?

    1. Thanks! Covenanters are quite satisfying to paint, with the fairly uniform appearance looking good en masse

  4. Very nice mate - I look forward to seeing my loyal highlanders into their ranks :-)

    "Oh and Paul - don't call them rebels. They're the forces of the Scottish government, right?!"
    A fair point Sir. They are indeed loyal lackeys to a corrupt and wayward regime without honour.

  6. Quite an inspiring array mate. Are you doing highlanders as well? I'm curious as to how you'd paint them at this scale...
