15mm Italian wars XIV. Francis I king of France.Venexia miniatures news

Thats Francis I king of France properly represented on his own command base. The figures are from museum miniatures and are very nice figures, and i copied the colour scheme for Francis from Ospreys battle of Pavia!

 Now to some hopeful news!About a month ago i emailed Sgt Major miniatures( as it seems have quite a few others) regarding the Italian wars Vennexia miniatures and received a pleasing reply this morning,  it would appear they are hoping to have them available in next few months, and he is keen to get them in production again, great news indeed!


  1. I have the same figures but haven't painted them because I thought the horse proportions looked a bit odd but they look excellent. I particularly like Francis' horse barding and the colour combinations are perfect.

    I'll have to give them another look but with maybe Venexia figures available again soon... so much lead, so little time!

    1. Thankyou, the Mounted Gendarme is as near as i could find to the art work of Francis in Ospreys Pavia art work!
      I am going to put the Renaissance period on hold for now and see what develops over at Sgt Major miniatures!

  2. Hello,

    Superb paintjob !!!


  3. Great looking command stand.
