It is a Wargames Foundry (I think) 28mm Renaissance Polish winged lancer. I may have the colours wrong so DO NOT use this as a painting guide. Rather than following a prescribed and authentic route slavishly I selected colours I liked and applied them. I just hope Peter likes them as much as I do! If he does not, that's fine I have the paint remover on hand and am quite happy to give it a dip. But realistically the chances are he will be over the moon.
On the shield I have free-handed an eagles head, ( or he can say it's a griffins head if he chooses). This was actually quite a lot of work and needed re-painting 4 times in total. But it ended quite nicely so I am sure it will be OK with Peter.
So that is my very brief foray into the Renaissance period. While I would love to do more very few at the club are at all interested so I can't see many appearing on this blog. And that is a shame I feel. But until a set of rules come out that as a club we can all enjoy the wait for Italian wars is just a pipe dream.
Tomorrow at the club Matt has agreed (offered really) to use his Burpas so with luck on Monday a Burpa AAR. We shall be using "The men who would be Kings!" for the game and as yet I have no more ideas than that!
So until Monday take care, have fun and paint if you can.
All the best Clint.
