A Bit of New Years' Painting

The Pikes. Looking for a basing scheme.
 Quite some time ago I bought a small pile both of the old production and the newly mastered Willie Landsknechts. I only painted a handful at the time before drifting off with the next butterfly. However since then I've been re-reading Simon Winder's "Danubia" and the bug has bitten again.

I've been rather inspired by this basing scheme.
Our Sutleress. A great comfort to the troops. Perhaps looking for the Eureka Sutlers' Wagon?
 I think I last saw Helga here on Stokes' blog. Sorry Stokes, I used you as visual reference for painting my own!
Poseurs. 1510.
Finally, a small group to show off the figures. I've been very impressed with how well sculpted and easy to paint these were. Highly recommended.

What fantastic figures - and beautifully painted too!

Sometimes it takes some sort of trigger to inspirit one into action. Looking good so far!

I have a love/hate thing about painting Landsknects. Definitely helps to be in the mood.

They are nice figures but looking much better now you've painted them. Good job!

They are really something. Beautiful figures and the palette makes them look like they've stepped out of a renaissance painting. Well done.

Agreed with all previous comments! ANd absolutely lovely colors. I thought Helga looked vaguely familiar.

Best Regards,

Ah! I now recall where I met Helga. It was that evening back during the winter of '61, where I was in Helsinki on some business for Universal Export. I looked across the baccarat table, and there she was. . .

Thankyou gentlemen, you are all most kind.

I've a few more on the blocks then I might be off to paint some Lancers.
