I picked up these Casting Room Miniatures
from the Foundry
stand at this year's Partizan
for £5 a pack. I think they must have been clearing out stock. I wanted a couple of bases of Light Cavalry to supplement the Gendarmes and Elmetti in my Papal army of Alexander VI which you may have seen featured, along with Phil's Florentines, in an issue of Wargames Illustrated
earlier in the summer. While the figures may not be to everyone's taste they do paint up nicely I've found so they will do for me at any rate.
I had to fit in painting them around major redecoration of the room I've been using as a painting base since GHQ relocated a couple of years ago or so. This meant that it took me longer than I'd hoped to complete them. Real life, gets in the way sometimes! Now they are finished you can see what you think of them. As usual bases by Warbases
and flags by Pete's Flags
I’ve also started on six Eureka Miniatures
Renaissance civilian figures to populate my tabletop setting in future games. If it wasn’t for the disruption of decorating, allied to a trip with Phil to Colours
on Saturday, I’d have hoped to have completed them over the weekend. As it is, it will take a while longer...
