I know I promised to finish two of my Swiss pike blocks, but somehow, always something more exciting comes in between and scrambles my production plan (if there is one).
This time, in the form of a small collected force of diverse southern French town militia, lend to his Majesty Francis I, heading for Italy; As Crossbowmen aiming behind their pavises. Even though the Italians (and the Spanish) had already begun to discard the Pavises, I found, it gives these Midi hot heads a bit of a rustic old fashioned flair. Still two are missing ... The miniatures are Perrys metal and the Pavises are form the Perry plastics.
Next time it must be Swiss!
