Sabbot bases for Italian Wars DBA
« on: March 12, 2018, 08:25:28 PM »
Okay, perhaps not the funkiest thread title in the world....:)

I am going to base some of my old Italian Wars stuff for DBA.
Here in germany is a small but eleborate gaming group wich bases its 28mm DBA stuff on deeper bases, so I will follow along.
Looks pretty convincing to me....:)

I will receycle some of my old stuff and paint just some minis here and there...

I started today with the generals base.
(So the general is newly painted).





And here how the sabbot bases work.







And the next sabbot base for more knights.
I go with the condotta list and need lots of knight bases...
...if I hate something its painting horses....:D






Cheers,
Don

Don, who makes the condottieri commander (Nicolo de Tolentino, from the painting of the battle of San Romano ?  although he certainly would do for Francesco Sforza) and the unpainted knight with warhammer ?

Nicolo is from the Perrys, the Hamme guy is from a foundry blister....;)

Lovely work and looks convincing to me as well.

I do the same thing with some of my HotT elements as well.

Cheers,
Barry

They look great  :)

Is the figure in the front a bit redundant though as he can only be used with these bases?

Thanx for teh comments....;)

Just painted a few pavaises today and one more knight....:)

And voila...two units of crossbowmen are nearly ready and one mroe unit of knights.





And a little close up of the pavaises.





The crossbowmen need a little overhaul...I think. 3-4 Years old.

Cheers,
Don

Lovely - they aren't just units, they are little vignettes.

Okay, after a few eeks at the north west frontier I am back in the Italian Wars.
This tiome I had to build a HORDE....;)

In the description they should be peasents...I took a more religious aproach....:)




Got the religious figures from the a hobby shop ....some kind of christmas deco I guess.





The rest are minis from the carrochio of the Perrys.....;)

Cheers,
Don

Wow, they look really good. The sabots for the cavalry are very subtle, I didn't spot that the rear two horses were separate.


...if I hate something its painting horses....:D


At least in the Italian Wars you have plenty of armour on the horses, so not much horse flesh to paint.

Got it from a brick and mortar hobby store. No name product, sorry.

Found it in some hobby online stores, too.
Its called "Krippenfiguren 20mm"

https://www.megahobby.de/bastel-material/deko-artikel/miniaturen/miniatur-krippefiguren-20-mm-5-teilig.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjwqsHWBRDsARIsALPWMEPZrwK2MbBJbjgoIVJa8ARopzeSZ4MuI6KBkv6EwIhwi30IOx80YkcaAjVBEALw_wcB



Okay, here are the next bases for the DBA big bases army.

First of my bombard.
Little bit in the stationary side...but I really like the model....;)







And one more sabbot base for the last knight element.




Neede some light horse too. Crossbow mounted or so...







And the last bases together.





Much to heavy for gaming I have to admit....:D


Cheers,
Don
