15mm Renaissance German knights 1

The first of 12 German Renaissance heavy cavalry, i have stuck to black, yellow,red and white colour scheme and to give them a different look to the french gendarmes am giving the majority of horse armour a embossed steel look, or at least thats the idea!

Pete at Petes flags sent me a totally un expected and most welcoming free paper sheets of Landsknecht banners in 15mm, and are just superb, and have added considerable detail to these German cavalry. Once again many thanks Pete for your kind gesture and i look forward to utilizing them to add colour and detail to my future Landsknechts!

15mm Legio Heroica Swiss pikes.

That's my first mass infantry formation in 15mm under my belt, 72 Swiss and hasn't taken nearly as much time as the 28s did! The LH figures are terrific and next on the list is 24 of their Burgundian archers, which are under way even as I post these.
  Happy weekend all!

15mm Renaissance french Gendarmes

All based up and ready to kick some Imperialist backsides, or as happened at Pavia, have there backsides kicked! All the flags are the excellent petes paper flags.On the Renaissance front I intend to stick to the same theme and paint some Imperialist cavalry, a unit of 12 mounted heavy German cavalry and 12 heavy Spanish cavalry, so at least that would be the heavy cav types represented!
