Sir Thomas Harrington of Hornby

Start of a new project, intended for a club game, the Wars of the Roses. These are 28mm Perry Miniatures with banners and retinue badges from Citadel Six Design. The intention to base this set for use with Swordpoint and Hail Caesar

First retinue up is for the Yorkist forces of Sir Thomas Harrington of Hornby. There will be further retinues representing Sir John Neville, Marquess Montague; Sirs Richard Neville of Middleham, 5th Earl of Salisbury and Eldest son (pre- Earl of Warwick),  and Sir Robert Ogle of Ogle, Lord of Ogle. 

This will be the third time that I have painted forces up for the Wars of Roses. Previous armies included a large set of 28mm Wargames Foundry figures sold many years ago, and resides somewhere in the United States. The other was a 15mm collection that was sold a few years ago.  It seems that this is a conflict I'm repeatedly drawn to, and it certainly provides some interesting battles.
