Arquebusiers for Great Italian Wars

While trying to maintain a focus on 15/18mm painting outputs, my painting activities keep being drawn back towards the completion of 28mm figures.  In particular, my recent attention has turned towards augmenting the Great Italian Wars project.
The first, in at least three Italian Wars units in the painting queue, is a nine figure stand of arquebusiers for use in Impetvs.  These nine will form a 'T' stand of missile troops of the closer order variety.  Currently, all arquesbusiers in the project are of the skirmisher variety.  It will be interesting to see the impact of close order handgunners on the Renaissance battlefield using Impetvs.
A second stand of arquebusier is under construction to be followed by a unit of mounted gendarmes.

    1. Thank you, Phil, but your Renaissance figures are little works of art in my eye!
