The Thirty Years’ War (1618-48)

Lots more photos on the main website at http://www.victorian-steel.com/ in the gallery

the war ended with a series of treaties that made up the Peace of Westphalia. The fallout reshaped the religious and political map of central Europe, setting the stage for the old centralized Roman Catholic empire to give way to a community of sovereign states.

Very nice and a period I'm also starting painting (more or less: slightly earlier Dutch Revolt, but with the same miniatures).

How did you paint the black curassier armour....highlighting with gray over black?

Some great painters at the club Steve painted the curassiers

Thanks, I'm looking at different ways of painting the period armour and will also try this approach.

Wonderfully painted figures.  What sources did you use for the colors and flags?  Thanks.
