Well I have managed to finish the front ranks, here is the Unterwalden contingent. I am not 100% sure Unterwalden had red and white canton colours, or just red. If anyone knows please let me know.
Merry Christmas all.

Here's the Uri and Basel contribution to the front ranks. I have added a few foundry Swiss into the mix. I decided to put the foundry Uri captain up front as I really like this figure and is full of character(as most foundry mini's are) and think he stands out better at the front. Just six pike armed thugs from Unterwalden to paint and that's the front bases done.

Sorry for poor photo but here's the first group of Swiss underway. These are going to be the Glarus contingent . I had been a prolific painter of front rank's medieval figures for many years and shade and highlighting had to be slightly more extreme otherwise they looked flat and lifeless. When I used the same style on a small group of Perry war of roses a few years back the result was very bad, the highlights stuck out like a sore thumb, these being so much slimmer they cannot take that level of contrast, so I am going to try and keep it more blended with these .
