Perry Miniatures Bring The Irish To The War Of The Roses

Perry Miniatures have released some new 15th century Irish, intended for use as auxiliaries in the War of the Roses.

According to Perry, quite a lot of Irish were brought over for the War of the Roses, with a large number fighting in Jasper Tudor’s army at the Battle of Mortimer’s Cross. They would also crop up on the continent as mercenary forces.

For obvious reasons, we love to see a bit of attention given to the Irish here. These models look fantastic and seem to fill a gap in the timeline of miniatures available for Ireland.

Perry have said that they will make some Irish cavalry as well, for when you want to play a game in Ireland’s own tumultuous history.

Would you field an army of Irish, or bring them on as auxiliaries?
