Building me some Perry Plastic Knights

I got me a box of the new Perry Plastik Knights 1450-1500 and of course just had to start to build me some of them at once, ended up with 24... enought for a Super Elite Hoast for Lion Rampant 4 grous with 6 Men-at-Arms on Foot are 24 points and a basic force in the game...


I will ofcourse paint them in Danish/Swedish CoA...might have to build me a Allmoge force to...

When bulding the knights I also mixed in bits from the erlier plastic kits to get knights in less modern armour, as my belive are that that the Swedish Knights in the outback of Europe didn´t use the same modern stuff as in France or England.  

As well there wasn´t that many true Knights in Sweden anyway, one box would probably be enought for them all...


The King mini will be painted as the Danish King, if I manage to paint his CoA... As you see I also got the "Knight dressing for battle" special mini, will be perfect for the camp:)

I must admit that I wasn´t that keen on a box of full armoured knights,, but it was realy fun to build them and I think they will look splendid on the gaming table. More to follow...

  5. Looking good, I'm tempted to get a box myself. Who doesn't love knights?

    On another note, shouldn't "Arrid Knutson" on the livery sheet be "Arvid Knutson"?

  8. With so many of the metal MAA already, I wasn't sure what to do with another 120! But the free figure is tempting ;-)
