So Waited for theise for a very long time(well 22 days) This happend after I watched olicana's blog about the italian wars, the pure wargame porn. I needed to do that!
I orderd 20 landsknecht from artizan, And I'll order a big order from foundry that will give me some 120 landsknecht and 18 gendarmes.
I'll also add arebusers, mounted and foot, mounted and foot crossbowmen ect. Probebly from TAG.
I've tried a totaly new style of painting theise figurers, I could say a bleak imitation of olicanas style. I only use 2 layers, with big contrasts, This is not a style I will use on any other project, this is italian war only style. They don't look half as good as olicanas but they look good.
They are fun to paint, but takes a long time, even with just 2 layers vs 3-5. the complex "uniforms" means it takes a while.
My units are mostly brightly colord, greens, reds, blues, yellows.
