Hadn't painted anything since summer, but managed a little game the other week.

A good friend was so kind to take some shots...:)

We just had a few minis on the board but a great time...



I had even some pro gloria-metal on the table...





Poor gendarmes. They got late in the game and didn't do to well...;(







Oh I am realy in love with my pike Landsknechte. But on the way back, 3 pikes broke off...;(






Hope to get more games done in italy...:)


...and many thanx to Martin for the pics...


Cheers,
Don

Okay. In wooden areas you get a free bandit unit as the defender. In a field area you get a small advantage as the attacker.

Posted the bandit archers a few days ago:

The heads are from the GW empire troops.
Not sure if missle or helbard/spear...

Little bit too big for the tiny histo bodys...;)

The bodys are from various plastic sprues.

Cheers,
Don
