FS two painted 28mm renaissance armies


A couple of years ago, I got quite excited about renaissance armies and painted up two. My interests have changed and I'd like to free up some shelf space for a new North America project. I'm asking $100 plus shipping for each for these armies (about $20 each in Canada or the US; around $45 to EU or Australia) but, if you take both, I'll cover the shipping in Canada or the US. All frontages are 60mm (originally for HoTT or DBR) and they come from a smoke- and pet-free home.

First up is a German army from the earlier part of the renaissance. There are four bases of mounted fellows in plate (all very fancy--you can click on the picture for a larger view). There are also two knights mounted solo (heros in HoTT) and a clergyman.

There are three bases of pike along with a general base. Note that the flag symbol is only painted on one side (the other side is blue/black).

There are three bases of crossbowmen.

And there bases of gun-equipped troops.

All in, the first army comprises 17 bases, with 40 foot and 10 mounted troops. A mix of Perry, GW and one Warlord figure (I think). About 40 APs if you are playing HoTT.

The second army is a slightly later and more flamboyant army that I really enjoyed painting. It includes a hero and an artillery piece.

There are three bases of mounted hangunners.

There are three bases of gunners, one of which is the general element (flag painted both sides).

Then there are a whole slew of fellows (11 bases total) with various stick-based weapons (spears, halberds, etc).

I wanted to include a close-up of the fellows with the spears. The base below is a close-up of one of the bases from the groups above designed to illustrate the painting and colours I used.

All told, there are 19 bases, with 56 foot figures, 7 mounted and one artillery piece. This comes to about  41 AP if you are playing HoTT.

Offers to All will be shipped bubble-wrapped and floated in peanuts.

A deal on the renaissance armies is pending but I will still take names in case it falls through.

thanks kindly

Lovely work Bob, I'm not surprised you found a buyer.
