Elizabethan Demi Lancer

Here's a couple of pictures of my first demi lancer  for use with Donnybrook rules. The figure is a simple conversion of the excellent Elizabethan general figure from Crann Tara miniatures; to have a look how simple here's the link to prove it
 cheers Pete

2nd game of Donnybrook

Here's some pic from our second game of Donnybrook which was touch and go for most of but resulted in an English victory despite the English commander being killed. The cannon fired twice and managed to take two casualties off the Irish and both Irish commanders were captured after being knocked unconscious. The next game will be a raid to rescue these two.  All figures are by Crann Tara, cheers Pete

Elizabethan artillery for Donnybrook

the Irish  are in for a bit of a surprise at this week's Donnybrook clash when this little beauty will be unveiled against my opponents' newly painted Gallowglass. well they will if I get them varnished and based in time.  The crew figures are conversions from the Crann Tara civilian pack  and the gun is an old QT model with Games Workshop wheels.
