Two Impetvs skirmish stands of Italian archers muster off the painting desk. These bowmen are a forerunner to a larger tranche of Italian Wars' figures preparing to debouch from the workbench.These eight figures are from The Assault Group (TAG) and will provide some light infantry support for a potential Venetian contingent. Rather than fielding an entire Venetian army, more likely, they will be utilized in whichever army could use some bow-armed skirmishers.
Decked-out in a red/white motif, these figures lend a touch of Venetian flair to my eye. The TAG figures are excellently sculpted but more slight and slender than many other manufacturers' figures. Having painted a TAG pike block (see TAG pike block), a few arquebusier (see TAG arquebusier), and now a few archers, I find the TAG Renaissance range quite pleasing. I ought to consider investigating TAG cavalry.
