Next detachment - a mercenary knights (10 men). They were the backbone of the army condottieri. Again I used the Perry Miniatures, and used an airbrush to paint the armor. I liked the result. Do you like it?
Next detachment (yes, yes, you know who the authors of these wonderful miniatures) - a unit of mercenary handgunners (20 men). Chances are, if judged by the flag - Swiss. Why not? "No money - no Swiss, but there is money - there is the Swiss".
Next work - colonello, a junior officer in the army condottieri. This miniature is already done, Peter, and I hope that I was able to even be a little bit as well as he.
Finally, you can see I made this week for the Venetian army in a single photo. I did some Napoleonics miniatures, but they are not quite finished, and I hope to introduce them to you next Friday.
Total for today 11 horsemen and 40 infantry miniatures, for 310 points.
Well, a points bomb to start things off today. Great works on these fellows Alex - this period is one I am really interested in, but when I see the work (airbrushing!) that it seems to demand, I get intimidated for sure. My favourite in this bunch is certainly the heavy cavalry - always impressive, and when gaming I hope to send lads like these straight down the throats of my opponents...of course, they always seem to have pikes, but I digress...
And the banners look fine as far as I'm concerned - an "experienced" looking banner is a quality banner. Worth a few extra points to this (now very cold) minion. Great work! Your initial points goal is already in sight...can't wait to see the Napoleonics next week!
