Instant Renaissance

Pike and Shotte‘s gonna get you
Gonna look you right in the face
Better get yourself together darlin‘
Join the geeky chase
How in the world you gonna see
Laughin‘ at fools like me
Who in the hell d‘you think you are
A super star?
Well, right you are

Well we all shine on
Like the drinks and the smoke and the bun
Well we all shine on
Ev‘ryone come on

free after Lennon


Metals painted by me, figures from Perrys and Foundrys, colour palette acrylic (don‘t believe the browns) and the flags are from the very best Glaswegian Flags of War, all delivered by Figures of Comfort (need to be mentioned much more), hunchbacks courtesy of SESWC, bless them all.

The Maximillian Camp

The Valois row 
The perfect set up (birds view)
Just the Swiss "even further" away
The Advancing Landsknechte in French service

The famous Doppelsöldner take the bridge ...

The Archer kill my right flank

They are coming nearer

Franz von Sickingen and his friends are facing the Count of Landes and others
Von Sickingen, Von Molberg-Sponheinm, the Herald,Von Göder, the Sasse of the Palatinate and Von Schenkenstein
THE real "Spanish Fury" face up to the Swiss

The bought Landknecht-Schützen aim for their enemies

Minningen in a hedgehog
The Scharfmetze (50kg shot) of Kaiser Max (one already blown)
The ReichsRennFahne will give away the end: Run!


  1. It' s a great pleasure for me to look at such minis, they are really splendid Michael, details are amazing, this period is amazing, these pictures are amazing...thanks for that!

  2. Thank you for the compliment and the loyal following and sharing the same passion for the same period. There is a sort of solemnity, if one put blocks of pikes on the table, (similar to that of a pint of beer).
