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.

I have now completed the re basing of the crossbowmen that I bought from Tony Runkee of Hinchliffe fame. These figures once belonged to the late great Peter Gilder and are well over thirty years old. I love them. I couldnt bring myself to replace the Burgundian banner painted by Tony, somehow it would be sacrilegious and somehow the naivety of the banner adds to the unit for me.
I did however put them on new bases to make them fit in with my armies. I shall use them as French mercenaries for my Italian wars. I may even showcase these at the show at Stockton at the end of this month. No doubt someone will point out the fact that they are decked out as Burgundians, but hey ho.
