Lace 'n Big Hats is a diary of my lead adventures. The title comes from a remark of Martin Rapier, a member of TMP. Lace 'n Big Hats aggregates historical periods such as the Lace wars, Seven years war, Napoleonic Wars etc, which had this elaborate dress as one common factor. I like the phrase so much I am thinking of using it as a name for a rule set I am working on.
My historical interests are actually a bit broader, so I will be throwing in bits and pieces from WW2 and even the Modern era.
These are 28mm Ancient British Warriors from Warlord Games. Painting each figure takes almost double the time I take to paint a Napoleonic figure. Luckily most of the shields are done with shield transfer. I still have a lot of Old Glory Ancients hanging around because I don't have transfers for them and the shields are too much hassle to paint. I'll have to find compatible shield transfers from somewhere else. Probably LBM have something that will work.
There are no transfers for the body paint! Luckily, you don't need as many units for playing ancients. Those take quite a bit of time.
These models are in the "Hail Caesar" range.
I photographed each group of five figures, front and back. Apologies for the verbosity. There is a lot to see. [Edit, then I went back and photographed some singles.]
