WotR Painting Resources

Post by footslogger » Wed Jul 08, 2009 3:22 am

I have about 600 points of WotR Lancastrians that I'd like to bring up to an 800+ point army. I have no idea what are good resources for painting. I bought this army so I don't know too much about what I already have other than that it is Lancastrians. What are good resources for learning more about what I have and what I might need to paint up?

Thanks

You should try the lance and longbow society. They produce a range of booklets that contain all the livery details and banners. Have a look here at some 28mm Lancastrians it might help you get started.

Get the Freezywater book "Standards, Badges & Livery Colours of the Wars of the Roses".

Another vote for the publications by The Lance and Longbow Society (especially 'Standards, Badges & Livery Colours of the Wars of the Roses')
http://www.lanceandlongbow.com/
If you want a realistic order of battle, the Poleaxed sourcebooks from LALS are very good too, and easily converted to other rules systems.

Freezywater do a very large range of standards and banners, which are available through Vexillia:

The Vexillia site also has some notes on how the various different types of standard and banner were used.

The Osprey 'Wars of the Roses' volume also has some livery colours and makes a useful introduction to the period.

Thanks all. I picked up the standards, badges, and livery colours booklet. Just what I needed.
