|Feudal Spanish Knights; Old Glory 15mm|
These are all 15mm Old Glory figures. I'm happy with the figure selection: Thanks, Tony!
|Feudal Spanish Cavalry; Old Glory 15mm|
I also didn't bring any research materials with me, and I was mostly without Internet for the week. The only reference I looked up while I was on vacation was getting an idea of Andalusian shield patterns. This is why some of the shields and smaller flags have yellow stripes on a red field instead of red stripes on a yellow field.
It felt liberating working under these self-imposed restrictions... some might even call it a "plan." I finished the painting with a few days left over, and lamented the fact that I didn't bring a second army to start painting.
|Allied light horse; Old Glory 15mm|
The General's stand is flying the colors of Aragon and/or Catalonia. As far as I know, these figures slightly predate the age of heraldry, so shield patterns were primarily decorative and not hereditary insignia.
|Feudal Spanish spearmen; Old Glory 15mm|
I hadn't painted any Old Glory 15mm figures before I did this army. I like the variety of poses available without overly dramatic, active posing. The sculpting isn't bad, but it's not the best I've seen, either. The figures are a bit smaller than Essex, which is fine with me: the horses actually fit on the bases.
|Feudal Spanish Psiloi; Old Glory 15mm|
I haven't played this army yet, so I don't know how it'll do. That's a lot of psiloi, but I like psiloi.
