28mm renaissance musketeers

I finished nine 28mm renaissance figures this weekend. These are older GW empire troops I got at a swap meet a year or so ago. I did two bases of musketeers and one command stand. 

I've tended to paint the renaissance figures in a mix of colours so I chose a theme for these fellows, thinking they might make a useful troop in quasi-livery. These are on 60mm frontages for HoTT.

I also put together about another 20 renaissance fellows I found (more GW empire) and have those primed. I will putter away at those over the next few weeks, although I find the good weather, my garden and my bicycle to be highly distracting!

Up next: A game of Memoir 44 using Star Wars with Bruce on Tuesday. Then perhaps more renaissance fellows--we'll see what looks interesting. I'm getting down to the bottom of my paint pile so my selection is getting thin. I may pick up a few fellows at the MayDay silent auction, though.

Gosh, Bob... Your stuff just keeps getting better and better... Very nicely done!

Thanks Tim. I'm trying to go a bit slower and get a better result. I'm also spending more time on banners, following the Tim School in this regard (tuition is cheap, but the master, he beats us so!)

I believe those are actually the most recent Empire figs, you can tell from the relative size of the guns. They seem to grow about 20% per edition (perhaps in line with their price).

Glad to see that folks are getting more for their money. Yes, their guns are enormous, especially compared with the Perry figures I have.
