Anno Domini 14...... (upd. pg.7 - shooty peasants)
« on: October 03, 2016, 11:46:17 AM »
After so many medieval plastic boxes arrives at the market, it was difficult to keep myself from buying lots of 'em and creating some forces for so called "large skirmish".

So, here we have Vittorio Grimani of house Grimani (poor venetian noble house at that time), who tries to make some fortune on some european theater of war...





...and his trustworthy (or not so trustworthy at all) guys with pointy-sticks and shooty-sticks under fancy-dressed and badly shaved captain Domiano.





Bigger (but not that clear, unfortunately) pic of winged-lion banner:




More 14....... high medieval stuff to come, keep looking for updates  ;)

Thank you so much, gentlemen! I'm very glad that you enjoy my paintings!

So, here we are again, more venetian reinforcements!

Handgun itself is a deadly and effective tool of man-killing. And very cheap! Unfortunately, this cannot be said about black powder of XV-century. That's why, when employing lots of mercenaries, prudent commander should pay attention to old trusty crossbows.



Also, can we seriously speak about a condottiere without some heavy-armored cavalrymen at his side? As far as our master's Grimani house is not that wealthy to have their own men-at-arms, they make short-term contract with house Vernier and their clients, who can afford some hitting power.



Stay tuned...

Keep 'em coming.  Talk of all the different houses gives it a rather 'Game of Thrones' flavour which is a good thing.

Very well painted and put together force.
