28mm Swiss Halberdiers.

Finally finished the basing on these Swiss, and I guess these may well be the last 28mm figures to appear here for some time. I have discovered a new world in 15mm scale and aim to cover the Burgundian wars and Italian wars  which keeps me in the 1470s to 1530s period( Nothing wrong with that !).

    1. Thanks Phil, the new scale has given me a new lease of enthusiasm which has been dropping on 28s!

  2. Fantastic Swiss. I must confess to being a 28mm collector, but your work in 15mm is impressive as well.

  5. As always really superb work Chris! While 28mm remains my favourite I like to dabble in 15mm as well as it has a certain charm and gives a nice army effect.

  6. Figures look great - whatever the scale.
    They've just jumped out of Schilling! Still can't believe how well the Perry & Foundry mix when painted; I'll try this too when I do more of mine.
    Cheers, Simon

    1. They blend very well Simon, and even the perry heads sit well on the foundry sculpts. Thanks for comparing mine to schilling and look forward to what you will do with your Swiss!

  7. Ohh they are simply stunning. I'll second painterman I wouldn't necessarily have thought Foundry and Perry would mix quite so well despite the connections ;-)

    1. Thanks Dave, the foundry figures are terrific, and add a lot of character and variety when mixed with the perry figures!
