New Year, New Old (Sort Of) Project


My much neglected Wars of the Roses project is being dumped again, after a recent game Dave and I were reflecting on past figure collections and our Mike’s Models 15mm French Italian Wars came up. Dave said if he started a new project this would be it, so a joint project was agreed upon, Dave would raise a force for the Borgias whilst I would utilise my WotR figures for a Florentine force. At least now with only having to paint one side and Dave to encourage me they will finally get painted.
Of course I have had to order some more Italianate figures from the Perry's, so far heads, mounted commanders, heavy infantry, swordsmen, additional pikemen to augment the plastics and mounted crossbowmen.
Check out Dave's DAVES BLOG for the opposition so far, meanwhile my progress is below, all Perry Miniatures except the hound which is Steel Fist both on bespoke bases from Warbases

    1. Thanks Matt, it has certainly sparked my enthusiasm which is always on the wane this time of year.
