Later Renaissance - 30mm Flats
Got around to painting some examples of the Wohlmann figures which I bought from Alexander Wilken a while back. Here are the two main cavalry poses. Actually there was another but he did not seem to survive getting lost in the mail. Alexander was went to a lot of trouble to replace the lost shipment so I didn't pester him about it.
And the three types of Landsknecht pikemen. I won't quite say that I'm intimidated by painting landsknechts, but perhaps due to some lack of imagination, I tend towards feeling somewhat overwhelmed by the wild freedom of choice in the color schemes. So it's a matter of just painting something, anything on the figures and if you paint a few duds, well there's always relegation to the inside of the formation for them. ;-)
And a group shot, same as above without the camera's "watercolor" filter.
Next up, working on the 40mm general from the Heinrichsen Rossbach set. He's coming along pretty nicely, I think.

Lovely stuff! A big block of those would look great. Cavalry are very nice, too.ReplyDelete
I agree, a big block will look good. The marching poses of the landsknechts are a minor drawback. I'd have preferred them in fighting mode with the pikes at least upright. But they still can make for a useable formation.
Superbly painted. Flats have a beauty unto themselves. DeanReplyDelete
