A fourth stand of Gendarmes for the 28mm Great Italian Wars project trots off the painting desk. Classified as CP or heavy horse in Impetvs parlance, this stand will add some additional punch to an invader's battle line.
These five knights are all from Wargames Foundry's Renaissance range of figures and are a mix from the RENMERC31-RENMERC32 codes. Excellent sculpting and the fully-clad armor makes these knights quick to field.
As often is the case, four gendarmes are left in The Lead Pile needing one more to field a fifth quintet of these fine lads. Perhaps a couple of the gendarmes noted above could be pressed into service as force commanders? With four stands already mustered out, my army for this project is beginning to take the shape of a French force. In the queue is a second command stand for the army.
Below is the latest group parading off the painting desk.
What is next off the painting desk? Sticking with cavalry, a dozen Foundry Russian lancers for the Great Game should be next group off the table.
