Here is a picture of the beginnings of my Venetian force, which is going to be this years project for my personal collection. All the figures above are from perry miniatures European armies range. A mix of plastic and metals miniatures, With the odd metal Italian head on a plastic body. I had great fun painting these and they make a refreshing change from all the black powder era goodness I have been painting lately. The flags are from Petes flags , are printed on cotton and I can highly recommend them. I have around 60 more troops all prepped up and waiting in the line.

I painted this unit of Republican Roman cavalry for Victrix last year. They are actually metal Aventine Miniatures figures which have been especially designed to fit in with the fantastic Victrix plastic Republican Roman range. They are available as part of the army deals on the Victrix site or separately on Aventines. They are finished off nicely with LBMS transfers, which are splendid as usual.

I painted these up at the weekend. My first base for my late 15th century Venetian army.
I have varied the metal quite a bit from dark unpolished to bright silver to add variety and show the more successful condottiero. Although i'm not sure you can tell in the photo.
