New Year, New Direction. (Update 20/01)
« on: January 06, 2018, 09:44:57 AM »
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 get painted, I will put the WotR figures I have painted up in the Bazaar at some point.

I have attached a photo of my character, Captain General Baldini.

Great general there :-*

It's good when a friend shares your enthusiasm and together agree for a joint project - a great motivator. Keep posting your Florentines! ;)

I actually remember Phil and Dave's original 15mm Papal & Florentine armies from back in the day - an image that has always stuck in my mind.

I'm sure we're all in for a visual treat, which looks like it's off to a good start, so avanti camerati!  :)

Who can forget Dave's pink coated crossbowmen  :)

I actually don't remember them, apparently the mind can blank out particularly distressing things though.  ;)

I do recall the barded men at arms and the general colourfulness of the forces... and of course that Dave opted to be the Pope.  lol
