Since mid march I've been trying to talk other gamers at the club(MIGS) into doing 28mm English Civil War. Warlord Games has a wonderful Pike & Shotte line of 28mm plastics that will do very nicely. Even better, they are quite cheap.
I started in early April by picking up a box of Warlord Games Dragoons from Bayshore Hobbies. the box comes with 12 metal riders, 12 plastic horses, and 12 dismounted dragoon plus plastic bases(50x50 for the cav, 40x40 for the infantry). I got them on sale for $39.95 CDN, but the regular price is $44.95CDN. I Quite like these figures. I have only painted up 2/3rds of the mounted and 1/3rd of the dismounted figures so far, as a teaser to show of the figures, and get others into the period. Since no one else ihas bought into it yet., I feel no rush to complete these.
