My Final Swiss.

 It would seem that I have finally completed the Swiss contingent for the Italian Wars, as I only have a few crossbowmen left to paint. I dont normally plan out my armies, and instead just buy figures and paint them until I am sick. These chaps were from an order I had placed when Foundry were reorganising and were offered at a cheaper price.
              Not Perry sculpts, but still nice, and actually easier to paint.
 There's not a lot one can say about them apart from they are carrying Pete's Flags, and look very jaunty.

    1. Thanks Phil,
      I am nearly out of renaissance unpainted figures! Apart from some light cavalry for the Spanish. What do I do then I ask you.

    1. Chris,
      I was surprised just how good they were, clearly a different sculpter from the Perrys, but a nice different if you know what I mean.

    1. John,
      I intend to down grade this block, simply because they are so deadly en masse, perhaps they could be Grisons, who I believe were poorer than their compatriots.

  5. Great looking Swiss, making a fine show with the flags, what's the chances of seeing all your Swiss together? Looking forward to seeing further renaissance figures soon!
    Best Iain
