Work continues on pushing out BMUs for the Great Italian War. Today's work shows the completion of one stand of three mounted crossbowmen for the project. With four large pike blocks ready for service, the recent Casting Room Miniatures' order was used to augment the project with a few odds and ends. All that remains to hit the painting desk from that CRM order is a second triplet of mounted crossbowmen.
While the anatomy seemed awkward on a few of CRM's command figures shown in earlier posts, I like these mounted crossbowmen a lot. Crossbowman anatomy looks good to me and the horses are first rate. The horsemen are not sculpted in the angular style of, say, Artizan, but more in a rounded, Renaissance-like style. Rounded features remind me of Renaissance paintings.
Also in the order were mounted knights for the Reconquista and Trojan War chariots. The knights are sculpted in a charging pose and look fantastic. I only ordered one pack of those so another order will be needed to complete a unit. As for the Trojan War chariots, one day I will tackle this project in earnest. Not for now, though.
