During the Christmas holidays, my buddies often exchange small wargaming related gifts. Sometimes these gifts are meant to fill in a gap in the recipient's collections or projects. Other times, these gifts are a source for "priming the pump." That is, introducing a small incentive to get a project moving. Of course, it could be both!
Such was the situation with these two figures. After the first outing with Jake's Great Italian Wars project (see Battle of Maisnon BatRep), Jake presented to me this duo of black primed figures. Knowing that a Great Italian Wars project was seriously under consideration, his timing was perfect. My timing, however, was less than perfect having taken me this long to get the figures into the painting queue. At least I finished them before Christmas 2015 rolls around! That in itself is a small success. Figures are Wargames Foundry.
Great figures and this stand will make a fine command element.
Jake, thank you again!Two, five figure stands of mounted gendarmes and two, three figure stands of mounted crossbowmen are in work.
