Pike blocks

These are nearly all TAG from their Italian range - but as they didn't deliver the whole order I needed to pull out some Old Glory which forms the front base of the bottom picture. 
The TAG are lovely figures - but the Old Glory are very good as well - definitely one of the best ranges of theirs that I have seen.

Venetians on the field

My new Venetian army got its first outing at Wintercon in Canberra last weekend.  In fact they bucked the trend for new units and ended up coming second.

I will put up posts over the next few days of close ups of the units.

But here are a few shots of them on the field - doing a lot of damage to a Swiss army.

Men at Arms disordered but that didn't stop them

Very brave Swiss about to meet their end

Arquebus ready for varnish

The three units of Arquebusiers are ready for the varnish and then basing.

Next up is a large pike block.  Just finished the dry-brushing of the armour and steel.  Sorry for the photo - it is early morning / darkish and it was a quick shot with the handheld camera in not enough light.
