And yet more Italian Wars figures.

On Friday I completed the bases of my second 48-strong Venetian pike block. I always used to be happy with my basing but recently I have become more self critical. Well, at least they're table top ready, and will undoubtedly cover themselves in glory....Or not. The figures are all TAG. Flags by Pete’s Flags.

I started these 18 Stradioti last Sunday and finished them off yesterday, which is a bit slow by my old standards but not a bad effort. I've only got another six  'westernised’ Stradiots to do. With this group of 18 I now have 24 of these Balkan gentlemen ready to play, flagged up to be in the pay of Venice or the Papacy. These are almost all Perry’s.

I really must write up the game we had on 18 June, which will hopefully appear by Monday. 


  1. Great additions, lovely colors and banners....

  2. The pike block looks great and the Stradiots aren't too shabby either.

  3. Very colourful additions Colin!

  4. There's nothing wrong with "ready for the table" - it's how armies get done.
