  1. Yes indeed...that's exactly the problem ....far too many Nevilles...plus too many kings with the same three names! I am currently reading "Kingmaker, Broken Faith" by Toby Clements, the second book of four in his WotR fiction series!

    1. I spent the weekend refurbing, basing, and flocking the rest of Bill's Medieval infantry; "film at 11",. as they say! :-)
      I have 5 weeks and 2 infantry units and 8 command bases to do - should be fine,
      Also, my banners and flags from Pete's Flags arrived yesterday!

  3. Another pleasing livery colour scheme Peter. It will be great to see a parade of all units together once they are completed.

    1. Thanks, Lawrence. A grand muster can be expected mid July, shortly before Historicon!
