These are another 8 Italians to "complete" the unit I had posted part of last week. They now stand as a block of 16, but will I will likely increase my pike and halberd blocks to 24 at some point. Pictures are below, including the full set of 16 and close ups of the new group of 8. These are all Perry's. A pack of 6 Italian Heavy Infantry, a Plastic Foot Knight and a drummer from the Italian command set. I have based them to match the first set of 8, but I'll try different combinations for the next unit.
These guys, along with the rest of my Italian Wars collection and Curt's troops say action last night. A full AAR will appear on the Single Handed Admiral later but two shots featuring these guys. Curt's fire disordered them in the advance so they fell behind the rest of their Battalia. You can see their flag in the background.
Speaking of seeing action, here's a group of four guys who aren't likely to modelling the latest in tinfoil hat designs.

Ahh, what a handsome, dashing bunch! (And I leave that to the readers to make up their own minds on what I'm referring to.)
Seriously, very nice work Pete. I really like the punchy colours you've gone with for these fellows, and they look great all mobbed up, ready to strike with verve towards the nearest pizzeria or espresso bar. It was great seeing them out the other night, and even better shooting anvils at them with Hildegarde's Death Bell. :0)
And another 40 points for me to try to match in our Renaissance Men duel. Eek! Well done Pete!
