15mm. Italian wars II

I have not had much time to work on the 15mm collection over last month but have managed to add a few additions, albeit still in need of basing, which i will do when the Landsknecht pikebloc is completed!


This is the center bases of the Landsknecht bloc completed, with Command, halberds and standards with a few pikemen , the rest will be mostly pikemen.All flags are high quality paper prints from petes flags. 



The Duke of Bourbon, a french noble who rebelled against his king, francis I, and fought against him at the battle of Pavia in 1525, and was later killed in 1527 leading the Imperialist assault on Rome, or as it is better known , the sack of Rome!

                                          The figures are 15mm Essex


Finally, the Imperialist Artillery park grows. All are old glory.
And a special thanks to Oli at Camisado blog sight for pointing me to some great art work of the period depicting artillery of the time, it has helped me to choose the cannon colours, thanks Oli!

  6. I'm glad you made good use of the references Chris - the guns and the rest of the figures look spectacular. These 15mm armies are going to be beautiful when they are complete.
