I have been pretty busy for the last few weeks, but have managed to paint up some units in between everything else.
I must admit I did enjoy painting my first unit of mounted Perry renaissance plastics.
The only down side was cutting them off their sprue. These are very good figures, and offer a great way to put together a renaissance army at a reasonable price. What I have done, is slip in the od metal command figure to give them a bit of weight.Anyway, the first unit of Borgia heavy cavalry........
I also painted up a unit of Italian arquebusiers and a light gun. One can never have enough guns.
Finally, I had to get some of the old Hinchliffe Italian Wars range, as I have always loved this figure. I have painted them as an Italian light cavalry unit, which were actually pretty heavily armoured.
So not bad considering my work commitments, because these were done in conjunction with the new units on my SYW blog. I need to put some pennants on the Hinchliffe figures, but That will have to wait.
Anyway, onwards and upwards.
