Thanks for your comments, everyone. 

Have you ever been to The Foundry at Stoke Hall?

Sadly, I have not. I had hoped to visit them when I crossed the pond last summer, but it didn't work out. I was thinking about sending them photos of the army when I complete it, though I'm not sure they'd be entirely pleased to be shown a project that has so few of their own miniatures in it.

Now what is this whole life of mortals but a sort of comedy, in which the various actors, disguised by various costumes and masks, walk on and play each one his part, until the manager waves them off the stage?

I've just finished the test model for the kern who will accompany the army - the "naked Irish" who suffered so terribly during (and after) the battle.  I had long been both enthusiastic and daunted by the prospect of having to convert the kern for this project, and I'm very pleased with the first effort, so here are some hasty photographs.





There will be plenty of variety in arms and dress, but for the first kern I went with the "classic" look of the leine, short coat (the Irish name escapes me at the moment), glib bangs and mustache, and glaive.  The sleeves of the leine were a nightmare.  The base is of course a Perry Mahdist, and the arms are from the Bows and Bills set.  I see in the second picture there's a rough patch by the shoulder which will have to be sorted out.

And for good measure, here is a gallowglass.  Most of the gallowglass (and some of the kern) will be Claymore Castings, but this one is built from the French infantry kit, with an Irish scabbard.

Excellent conversions.  I was looking for some ideas for the Irish at Mortimers Cross so am keen to see what can be done.

I'm really pleased that you all like the conversions, especially the first one (the gallowglass came out rather more static than I'd planned).  I too like him quite a bit and couldn't keep from painting him right away.



The designs on the coat are taken from an Angus McBride illustration from the Osprey book on Henry VIII's armies.



This gives a better idea of the colors.  The Irish were quite a colorful bunch, really, with coats in a variety of colors and patterns and the leine surprisingly yellow.

I'm working on the next kern as well, who will look rather different.

Very nice! I'm doing Stoke myself but I don't have your sculpting skills so I've just gone with Claymore Castings for the Irish. The Gallowglass in particular looks very good.

Really impressed with the way the kern turned out, looking forward to seeing more of them.
