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 project continues.
In between bouts of Bronchitis, etc I have still managed to get some painting done. In this case it is my Spanish heavy cavalry. The Spanish cavalry was not as heavily armoured as their French counterparts, and tended not to use bards. As a consequence I've used unbarded horses to emphasize this. Clearly I was in a Red/Yellow mood during their painting but it helps identify their Spanish connections. Standards are in the main by Adolfos Ramos, with a couple of Pete's Flags thrown in.
All my pike blocks have their own sub unit of missile troops, this is the latest completed unit for my Swiss. I checked just how many Swiss I had, and I realise that I do have a large number, ie 4 blocks of pike plus lights, which is quite enough really. At least I thought so until I found! a box of unpainted Swiss pike. So it would be churlish not to paint them as well, they can always be the lesser effective Grison Swiss.
