As noted in the prior post, more Great Italian Wars figures are in the painting pipeline. Off the painting desk today is a five figure stand of heavily armored Gendarmes. Based for Impetvs, these lads will offer additional mounted might to the project. Figures are Wargames Foundry.
In this latest painting theme on Italian Wars project, one more stand of handgunners awaits in the wings. Enough Foundry Gendarmes remain in The Lead Pile to field one more such unit. The painting queue also holds a 39 figure pike block of TAG Italians waiting their turn at the brush. Forty figures is a big group to tackle at one go. I may break this daunting effort down into 3 x 13 figure stands. Before the pikemen are tackled, painting returns to the 1799 project to field two more cavalry regiments.
