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.

Lost in Italy?
During the time I was building my replacement Renaissance
armies I squirreled away various figures
that invariably I forgot about and never painted. Now that I am between
projects and thinking about what I will do next I dug out a few of these
figures to paint. As is usually the case I am now painting up a new pike block
using a combination of Steel Fist figures and the ex Pro Gloria plastics. That
is if they are compatible. If they don't look right together, I will end up
buying some more metal from Warlord. These two gentleman that I found are a
sort of tester for the unit. I was never any good at woodwork but somehow
cobbled together the table. The maps are made from some Japanese paper that I had
laid around to make a couple of flags once.
