I do dabble in the Renaissance era, like the period very much but I haven't quite settled on the approach yet. Do I go with 30mm flats, or try to make use of my Meisterzinn molds for a 40mm project ? And which Renaissance, the early Italian Wars, or something mid-century or later ? With the flats there's ample choice, 40mm probably has to be the Italian Wars era although playing a little fast and loose with historical accuracy and stylistic integrity seems like the path of least frustration.
At this point, I'm leaning towards the 40mm but I need to try out a few conversions first with the Meisterzinns. I think the halbardier could convert simply enough to a pikeman, perhaps the landsknecht walking swordsman can be converted to a rear rank pikeman as well. The tournament knight can pass for a French gendarme ca. 1500 if I file off the shield. We'll see how it goes. Seems kind of nutty to cobble something together in 40mm when there's such a rich variety of 30mm flats but I am tempted to try to finally make something of the very under-utilized Meisterzinns.
