15mm Renaissance Imperialist tents

I have made a start on my Imperialist camp scene, and gone straight into painting the tents. The main large tent has the Imperialist eagle and cross of St Andrew on reverse with Georg Von Frundsberg coat of arms on shields each side. I added a dirty look to the lower halves with weathering pigments.



I have seen many colourful well painted examples by others for inspiration but in the end went with canvas colour as in this original artists camp scene of the period,

  1. Your "tents" look more realist and historical - Awesome! brush work and tent banner/flag decals or painted?

    cheers,

  2. Like 'em - nice and grubby and 'lived in'. Need to find a 28mm version of the improvised/straw tent...
