More 28mm renaissance

I finally managed to work my way through five bases of 28mm renaissance halberders . These are GW Empire troops that I got in a job lot. For some reason I only took pictures of four of the bases. Oh well!

I was happier with how these guys turned out than the last batch of renaissance. I spent more time varying the colours and patterns, although there are a lot of stripes (nature of the sculpts).

I think GW did a very nice job putting character into these faces. As a job lot of bits, there was a lot of mix-and-matching here. Not sure where the pirate head came from--perhaps it is standard GW issue?

I have a couple more boxes of renaissance foot to work my way through. I will likely do them up in a more uniform manner as if they were the troops of a particular noble or city.

Up next: I have a bunch of 28mm Malifaux that I am working through and quite enjoying. I hope to have the hill-billy goblins done by this weekend and then onto the second group.

  1. These look great, you've brought out the character really well. The pirate head is from the GW Mordheim mercenaries/Empire Milita sprue

  2. Ah, the joys of a job-lot! I'm actually quite happy to have the variety although I did not notice the piratical look of the head while i was assembling (doing it production line to maximize variation)--only when I started painting. "Yaaar, there be landschenks over thar way."
