I completed my fourth Spanish Colonella this week so I reckoned it was time for a little (?) parade. Primarily so I could take stock of what I have and what gaps if any require filling, ideally without having to buy any more little men. It might have started off being just for my Spanish but I thought what the hell and took all the figures out for the photo shoot. It’s clear I seem to have gone completely over the top, but if there was one benefit of the lockdown, or Great Confinement, its this. The photos are in no particular order.
|The Venetians. A couple of infantry units to do.|
|A view along the lines, with the Spanish nearest the camera. Six more Jenittes almost done for the Spanish. |
|My Swiss. I need some more. I really do. I have enough spares for another large block of pike and some shot.|
|The French army closest to the camera. Sadly I could do with some more, especially Gendarmes and Gascon crossbowmen. |
|My far too many cannon. |
|The French again|
|Papal forces. Just about complete.|
|The Venetians again. Lots of Stradiots on the right.|
The figures are a right old mixture of TAG, Perry, Foundry, Eureka, Steel Fist, 1st Corps and Old Glory. There’s even some Mirliton. Bound to have forgotten someone. Almost all the flags are Pete’s Flags. I’m still plugging away through a modest “200 or so” (in case my wife reads this) figures. A few crossbowmen, Swiss and Landsneckts plus some more Gendarmes and lighter cavalry.
I don’t feel awkward about posting about my growing collection in whatever project I’m currently working on, any more than I do about anything else about my involvement in this super hobby. I am seriously fortunate to be able to enjoy the resources I have available.
