15mm. Italian wars XIII. A few additions.

A few more Imperialist additions to the Italian wars.

On the left is Museum miniatures Organ gun and on the right is a command base of  Gotz Von Berlichingen(b.1481-d.1562) made up of Essex minitures.
The standard is the usual excellent Petes flags.


I have done some extra work on the command bases by adding an identification marker with the commanders name, these were made by cutting a strip of a 20x20mm mdf base and then slicing it to half its thickness!
I am finishing of with Francis 1st command base with Museum miniatures, i had originally painted him into the french Gendarmes  unit but have decided to do a representation of him on his own base!
   After i have finished Francis I i am planning to put the Italian wars collection into hibernation for a while, its been four months work and i have made a significant contribution to this colourful period, and its time to return to the the medieval times and put a bit more work into the 15mm Burgundian army collection.

  1. Simply amazing stuff Chris. Your transition from 25's to 15's has progressed well and you've lost none of the colorful splendor I like so much in your 25's. It's fun watching your project grow.

    Cheers
