Or maybe it’s a Scottish garden. At any rate, I’ve been playing around a bit with the Scots Flodden army making some attempts at playing out the Battle of Linlithgow Bridge (1526). What became a problem as I did this were the large flags which made handling the pieces difficult and obscured too much of the piece. The header picture shows the Scottish army bunched together and more and more it reminded me of an overgrown garden. So, another idea that I liked but that has proven ultimately to be a fail.
The English Flodden army is coming along well (although I’ve had to repaint most of the ebay figures and replace at least a hundred with new figures to get more the look I wanted). I started doing the English with large flags but then switched to smaller, liked the look, and stayed with it. The Scots, of course, will now need to be completely reflagged 😬
