Wars of the Roses Impetus - part one

As I've mentioned here before, I recently discovered Basic Impetus and decided to rebase my old 25mm Wars of the Roses figures from their previous skirmish bases.  These are the first elements - three units of billmen.

First we have the Duke of Buckingham's men.

These are a mixture of Perry twins' figures, many of them slotta-base figures from the Citadel Miniatures, others from Wargames Foundry.  In front of the unit is one of the markers I've made to show "disordered" status in Basic Impetus.

Next we have Lord Howard's men.  This is the unit I was formerly involved in reenacting.  Again there are some Citadel and Foundry but also a converted RAFM figure and some from a manufacturer I don't recall.

And finally, some billmen from the retinue of James Butler, earl of Ormond and Wiltshire.

Again, some Citadel, some Foundry, some unidentified.  As usual, click to enlarge.

Nice work, like the flags too!

Cheers, Ray. The Butler banner is homemade. Can't recall which manufacturer did the Howard and Stafford standards.
