On the left 5 x Chinese Wb(F) - Essex I believe.
On the left - "Irish Kerns"
Don't know the manufacturer of the latter - they have oblong bases so not Essex. According to my references Irish kerns did not have boots but went bare-legged. Some of the lesser kerns may have had bucklers but precious few. The better off kerns had, mainly, oval shields. So this leaves a bit of a mystery - perhaps they could be classified as Bidets but the boots are still wrong! Any suggestions anybody?
More Irish kerns - from two different suppliers - the ones on the left are noticeably bigger. As they are shieldless they must be intended as Ps(I).
Incidentally, there are a few Ps(S) still on the painting board.
This week I played Saga using Scots and did ok (I survived that is). There was a DBM game going on - Wars of the Roses versus Hussites (Andy's Hussites won).
Two weeks ago the scrap was between Early Samurai (book 3) v Tupi (book 4) with the Tupi just scraping a marginal win. I did ask if this was a 'fantasy game' considering the geographical and temporal differences. The reply was unprintable!
