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.

It was only supposed to be a contingent.
At the request of a poster, Iain, I have took some quick snaps of my Swiss contingent of the French army. Its only when you put them on a table as a whole do you realise that maybe one has painted too many. It was meant to be a contingent, but probably could be used as an army in its own right.
I have 'found' a unit of unpainted Swiss halberdiers, that I think I should complete, as the Swiss were renowned for their murderous use of the weapon. I also have some spare crossbowmen, which if painted up could reflect the earlier Swiss army. Oh and not forgetting the Duke of Lorraine and his small unit of knights.
