Great Italian wars 14 Last of the Spanish and a command stand

Here we have the last Spanish colonela, these are predominantly old glory with Warrior packing out the pikes including some head swaps with Perry plastics which just about work, even though Warrior are more 25mm really. I mainly got them so that I can finally finish my 25mm Ral Partha units(that were  started in about 1979! ), at 40p each it's certainly the cheapest option, I was buying them second hand on ebay for 50p each and then found out on the home site you could buy a landsknecht army of 100 figures for  £40! They're not bad, although the limited poses is a bit difficult once you get away from pikemen.



I know flags, it'll happen honest and when it does I'll post all four units! The command stand is foundry and are lovely figures. 



Well that's me for now I'm prepping more Swiss, landsknechts and carts! I should be doing stradiots ,mounted crossbow men and genitors but hey ho!

  3. Excellent work, Iain! Love your Spanish and I am especially fond of your work on the Foundry Landsknecht mounted nobleman. He is one of my favorites. Really like your work on his mount too.

  8. They look rather splendid all ranked up like that and yes, some flags will make them even better, but there's no rush. :)
