Thank you guys :)

Great looking arquebusers. And I am really looking forward to seeing some Italian wars from toofatlardies. Got a link to the post about it?

Yeah, if you bang in @Toofatlaries on twitter and scroll down you will find a heap of stuff. Try this link for starters:

Beautiful figures

They really are Richard- underrated IMHO. Beautiful crisp castings with barely and flash to remove. The sculpting speaks for itself :)

Brilliant stuff as usual 👏

I do hope we get to play a game some day 🙏

Cheers Gareth. Me too mate, me too!  :'(

Thanks Simon :)

I'm going to be using the last figure on the right as El Gran Capitán/Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba plus a few others on the base from different suitable ranges:


When I saw Pete was releasing the Italian Wars character packs it made me a very happy man. While I realise that they don't always sell as well as the rank and file I would love to see more character packs. It's the trimmings around the edges that really make an army IMHO.

Well worth a look, the Lardies have posted plenty of pictures of the games but no info, which would be premature as the rules are still in playtest.

A new post whilst my brush is out of action of the beautifully sculpted and cast Spanish Trastamara range of Arquebusiers from The Assault Group.

The level of detail on these sculpts is tremendous. The casting excellent with very little flash to be removed. Virtually no chunks of mould missing that can sometimes provide a painter with some nasty chunks of metal in need of removal which sometimes presents with other manufacturers, which of course can be a bit dangerous to remove at times.

I really loved painting up this unit. The first unit for of Gonzalo Fernandez de Cordoba's army for Cerignola (1503) project. I've currently got a unit of pike, cleaned up, undercoated and primed which, being out of action for a wee while, is a little frustrating; I am very eager to get to painting them up! I have a unit of mounted Goths ready and some work to do for a slightly different project as well- I may be able to drop a hint or two about that later but will have to check. :)

So, without further ado/more excessive waffle from me, here are the single bases:

For a more all 'round view of the bases, more images from various angles can be seen on my Just Add WAter Blog here:
