Elizabethan Small Wars: Part 5: Irregular Wars – Temporary counter armies
Keen to start playing Irregular Wars while the 15mm metal figures are being released, collected and painted, I knocked out a couple of counter armies (Royal English and Mere Irish). The counters were made from 30mm square pieces of MDF.
The designs were created in CorelDRAW and printed on A4 labels. As these counters are supposed to be only temporary I used simple geometric designs to represent the 15mm figures which the 'real' armies will have.
The labels were cut up and attached to 30mm square pieces of MDF. The MDF were old mechanically-sawn bases with rather rough and hairy edges. I now buy only laser-cut ones.
Two armies in an old hummus tub. The hardest part of this exercise was cleaning the tub.
