From IainW: Italian Wars Stradiot (80 points)

Hi there, I don't know if this makes it for this Thursday or next but here are eight 28mm stradiot by Perry Miniatures , well mostly. I wanted two units of eight and bought six Perry figures and ten Old Glory figures but I couldn't combine the two, the Perry figures were way too big so I've got two warlord games ECW figures on Perry horses with cut down shields, I think they'll do.


No flag as I'm a bit pushed for time, I've got to pack all my figures and move them to a shed I've just built, I've got to get out of the basement the builders start in March, what fun!




I'm pretty happy with how these have turned out.Got to get finish the baggage train for them to pillage!

All the best

Iain





These are splendid Iain! Not only are they moving with a purpose, but they are a true riot of color as well! The colors are really wonderful on them. I also like the basework. It looks precisely like the ground Clint Eastwood will film Westerns over in a few hundred years! ;)
Although they lack the impact of a gendarme, They certainly don't lack in style!

  5. Great work Iain. I've painted the same minis and they are among my favourites from the Perry range. The hats are just great. Great work on the shields BTW!
