Inspired by the latest Borgias series,and the Warlord Games Pike and Shotte rules,its time for me to start a new wargames period. The army of Cesare Borgia and hopefully some opponents. All in glorious 28mm.
Aut Cesar, Aut Nihil, Wargaming the Borgias.

The Papal Guard.
You can never have enough Household troops, like the Old Garde, one needs a colourful unit of men that stand about looking pretty. Hence my small Papal guard.
Made up of Perry, TAG nad Pro Gloria, the unit probably never fought for Cesare, but it was just to good to miss. You cant beat a man in a dress, especially when he has a great big halberd near him.
I also had to have these wonderful Pro Gloria one pound arquebusiers. Expensive, but too good to not own
John kindly painted the chap in green, and showed me how they should be assembled.
Finally, I have completed my first unit of Foundry Gendarmes, which were a joy to paint, after I had cleaned up the flash. In a rush to photograph them I haven't finished flocking the unit, but they still look pretty menacing. My army is slowly growing and is getting to look like a proper army now.
PETE'S FLAGS look particularly impressive, definitely the most accurate and best on the wargames scene.
