I have painted these wonderful mounted Renaissance knights straight from the art work of Maximillians triumph, banners and all.
There is some very exciting stuff going on at Steelfist miniatures,with their new Landsknechts released recently, i just had to get myself enough to make a 44 man pikebloc( also a nice sheet of petes flags to). they are certainly the very best and most historically accurate 28mm Landsknechts out there and likely be the best ever produced, for along time to come. My future painting plans have been more or less dictated to by manufacturers recent releases, , i had given up on the Italian wars due to a lack of fine figures to paint in 15mm, now suddenly the early Renaissance is coming to life, with Steelfist 28s and bluemoon and khurasan releasing or working on releasing what look to be excellent Italian wars ranges, things have never looked so good and with only a bit of basing to finish of my wars of roses and a part complete 15mm ECW Royalist army in the way, the italian wars has made a unexpected and welcome leap to the top of my wish list.
Steelfist Landsknechts safely arrived
