You finally realise just how wise Nature is. Bringing up children is definitely a young persons thing, dont be fooled by these people advocating putting off children until you are in your 40's and 50's they are talking guff. I have just seen my grand children off, and my wife and I looked for the nearest settee to collapse onto.
I digress. I was lucky enough to hit the Foundry sales on E Bay, as they try to re organise their business, which had clearly taken a bit of a hit.
Some people didnt like the renaissance figures that were added to the range after the loss of the Perry twins. Me personally I dont mind them, and to be fair some are very good.
Foundry were also off loading a lot of their old Citidal range of late medieval range of figures, now these I have always liked. They may be a bit smaller than a lot of current ranges,but they are very fine figures.
At half price,there are no grounds for complaint. So like all sad wargamers,you buy more than you need, saving the mountain for that rainy day.
I think the pike block still looks fairly intimidating.
Flags,from Pete at Pete's flags, still the best Renaissance flags around.
Perry Stradiots, enlisted into my Borgia army as mercenary light cavalry.I wasn't certain about the shield designs, and went for a turkish look, as they were copied from the turkish light cavalry originally. A lovely figure to paint.
This command group was from my spares box,which is full of alsorts of diverse figures.
