The header picture is a detail of the center (the King’s ward) of Scots army (which is shown again at the end of the post in clickable form).
Virtually all of the figures purchased from EBay were repainted and approximately eighty more painted from scratch. All the figures, old and new, are Pendraken. The flags are mostly Pendraken as well, although they were scanned to linen paper and enlarged by about thirty percent (a process I did first discuss with the Pendraken folks). There is no historic rationale for this enlargement but I have become enamored by the look. It certainly makes unit identification simpler.
With the exception of the reserve all the levy pikes are completed and gathered together in the Flodden Order of Battle. The long pikes were a very recent addition to the Scots army, replacing the spears normally carried, and organized along the lines of the highly successful Swiss mercenary armies.
While the bulk of the army is now assembled, I still need to complete three additional steps:
The first (and by far the largest) is constructing the various highland contingents. This will be 111 figures of which about a third come from the EBay purchase (bows and a few gallowglass types). These last will, have to be repainted into more believable colour schemes. The remaining figures are new (both gallowglass and clan levy types). Incidently, I use “gallowglass” here for the more heavily armored Highlanders. These are all mounted and ready for their base coat (although I need to add small bucklers to about have the levies).
The second task is completing Bothwell’s reserve. This will be eighteen new figures to represent the men of Ettrick, Selkirk, and Galashiels.
Finally the guns of the ordinance will need to be organized from the EBay purchase (with probably two additional guns added to get the ratio right). The command/master gunner will also have to be done from scratch.
