From RossM: 28mm Mycenaean Spearmen & 20mm WWII British Entrenched Infantry (44 points)

Ross sends is a very nice mixed entry of Mycenaean spearmen and two very cool stands of World War Two British infantry snug in their foxholes.

The hide shields on the Mycenaeans are hand-painted and Ross did a wonderful job capturing the texture of them (as you can see by the lead image).

These are 28mm Redoubt Miniatures castings that Ross has based for 'Impetus'.

Very nice groundwork on this stand.
Ross also sends us these two unique stands depicting four British Tommies settling into their foxholes.

These are from the very fine 20mm AB Miniature range. 

These miniatures will give Ross a base of 38 points but I'm adding another 6 for the excellent work on the shields. Very nice, Ross!

From KentG: 28mm English Civil War Cavalry (480 points)

Kent sends in this impressive entry of four regiments of English Civil War cavalry, 48 figures in total (!).

I'm not positive, but by the looks of them I believe all of these are 28mm Wargames Foundry castings.

There is one regiment of Cuirassier, two of Horse and one of Dragoons.

Again, such great quality matched with remarkable speed. I'm very envious, Kent!

This group will give him a whopping 480 points. Wow, bravo, well done Kent!

From TimB: 28mm Dark Age Scots, Normans, Irish, Amazon and Hoplites (250 points)

Tim has been going at it, hammer and tongs, getting ready for his big DBA campaign weekend later this month (which will fall right on his birthday - Happy Pre-Birthday Tim!). Here we have a potpourri of wonderful figures ranging from Dark Age Scots, Normans and Irish, to Classical Amazons and Hoplites. 

Tim wows us again with his hand-painted plaid cloaks and shield designs. Beautiful stuff.

A pair of Normans and an ill-tempered Irish woman.
These 28mm figures have been sourced from a broad mix of manufacturers. The Scots are all Old Glory, the Normans are Crusader, the Amazon is from MegaMinis and the Hoplites are from Black Tree, Foundry (the Spartan) and Crusader.

An Amazon and assorted Hoplite warriors.
This group of 44 figures will give Tim a base of 220 points but I'm going to give him an extra 30 for the excellent  work on the shields and plaids. Well done, Tim!
