I wanted to wait until I'd completed another unit before I did a post on my blog,regarding Cesare Borgia.
With Christmas being upon me,my painting was slowed to a standstill, apparently my wife reckons its anti social to lock your self away when your grandchildren come to stay.
Oh for the time they reach 10,then they can do my undercoating.
Anyway,I have finished a couple of things, one is a pike unit of Romagnol pikemen and their sub unit of arquebusiers. Cesare,supplied his instructers with the heavy Swiss pike,as opposed to the lighter Italian one.
This and the Swiss and Spanish trainers must have made the Romagnol units quite decent.
I also did a couple of artillery pieces with crews,to see how they looked.
With Ian Hinds having a 20% reduction on his Hinchliffe range for December / January I bought a few pieces,to try out.
Perhaps not to every modern wargamers taste,but I still like them a lot. Especially the wagons,artillery and the French Gendarme,which was always a favourite figure of mine.
