I don’t like painting crossbowmen. I’m not sure why. I think it’s uncertainty about what the equipment looked like and the amount of details involved in painting all that equipment. These are nice figures – Perry plastics. They went together easily and they look good now that they are done.
I’m going with a red and white theme for all my Venetians. The look is thematic not uniform. The flag is from Pete’s flags. It’s an excellent cloth flag. I wish I had done a better job shaping it. You can see it has some shaping to it, but not a lot. That’s on me.
This group of figures makes up a couple of stands of crossbowmen for ADLG. I can have up to 4 in the Venetian army, so I may do some more, but for now I’m good.
