From RayR: English Border Horse (136 points)

From Ray:
Back to the Battle of Flodden for my 9th entry. Here we have 4 units of English Border Horse, that fought on the right flank of the English battle line under Lord Dacre. The first unit are from Bamboroughshire in the East March, the second are also from the East March, but from Tynemouth. The third unit are from the East March and the last are from Northumberland and were led by the Bastard Heron!!! This unit is carrying the banner of Lord Dacre, Warden of the English West March.

All the figures are from Essex and were quite an easy paint as you can probably guess. The flags are once again from yours truly, the Dacre flag can be found on my blog to download.

Lovely work Ray. I really like the animation you've put into the flags. This is kind of new for you isn't it? The effect is especially dynamic with Lord Dacre's long banner which seems to be billowing nicely in the wind.

These four troops of horse will give Ray 136 points including a little extra for his excellent flags.


  1. Well done as always, Ray. Flodden is an interesting battle, hope to see it replayed on your blog.
    "The Bastard Heron". Nice moniker that. I can see a few people calling you `The Bastard Rousell` if you keep cranking them out like this.

  2. Very nice and just behind your brother now I see.

    Will it all be Flodden now?


  3. Great stuff Ray, I really wish I could get back into 15's.I just can't see the buggers anymore, let alone paint them.
    I got some of my 6mm out a few days ago, tried to look at them and though sod it and put them away again.

    1. Tell me about it, I need new eyes, not new glasses!!!

  4. The Bastard Rousell does it again, cranking out more great units. Excellent stuff Ray! :)

  5. Nicely done Rousell. But, I'm looking at the numbers and Fran is ahead of you in points. Huzzah!

  6. Nice unit there Ray , hope you have a few more hidden away somewhere for that mad dash to the end


Thanks for your comment! As long as you're not a spam droid I'll have it up on the blog soon. :)
