Finished painting the 10 camp bases. Made them generic (i.e. no actual figures on the bases themselves) so I can use them for different periods as required e.g. the bell tents would just as easily fit in with my 1914 stuff as with the ECW stuff I'm doing currently.

Monday is ANZAC day so my mission after going to the dawn parade is going to be flocking the camps and the remaining Irish units. Before I get back the last stuff from Paul.
Though much is taken, much abides; and though
we are not now that strength which in old days
moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are.

Finished flocking the rabble and camp bases as planned so took a few pictures as it's a nice sunny and very calm day in Wellington today:

My generic camp stands - metal bell tents from the Zulu War range (ZC 11):


Resin tents (SCN-TNT3 and SCN-TNT4) - made two red and two blue command tents to represent fairly small generic camps for FK&P, DBA and similar scale rule sets:


5 units of Irish "Rabble" for FK&P - supposed to represent a mixture of native Irish and Anglo-Irish peasentry from early years of the War of the Three Kingdoms (1641 - 1643). Later both sides would field better equipped musket and pike armed infantry and sword and pistol equipped cavalry units. These units are also generic enough to use as poorly trained and equipped units in Scotland (e.g. Montrose's reserve at Alford and the bulk of his army at Carbisdale in 1650):


A closer shot of the rabble:

Nice to see them all based up! The tents turned out quite well.
Encumbered by Idjits, we pressed on
