A number of Wargames Foundry mounted crossbow units have passed across the painting desk and one more such unit musters off the workbench today. Not nearly as impressive as Iain's Herculean effort of fielding 108 pikemen in a month but these three horsemen allow me to clean out some lingering figures in The Lead Pile.
These figures are from the Late Medieval range and sculpted by the Perry brothers. Fine sculpts but unfortunately the Late Medieval range is smaller than Foundry's Renaissance range. The horses and riders are a fair bit smaller than the much larger knights siding astride huge horses found in the Landsknecht figures. Despite this size differential, on the gaming differences are minimized.
With my recent focus on painting 15/18mm figures, switching in a unit of 28mm figures is a welcome relief. Expect more 28mm work in the coming weeks including more for the Italian Wars project as well as the Reconquista.
