More Italian Mounted Shot

This is my first entry in the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge that went up over the weekend. There are really wonderful pieces of painting going up on their site.

A new unit of Italian Mounted shot.  Figures like those before are TAG - I really like them.  They are very easy to paint.  Horses done with the oil wash - quick and easy (other than allowing 2 days to dry before over painting for the tack.

Next up - against my better judgement - is my first unit of Landschneckt.  Figures are Foundry Landscheckt arquebusiers.  They will form two 6 figure skirmish units for Impetus.  A couple of hundred of these will drive me crazy.  They should be done in the next week.


  1. The oil paint method on the horse flesh is very effective, must give it a go one day.
    Merry Christmas,

    1. Pat - it is easy (if a little messy) and while elapsed time is extended while waiting for coats to dry, actual effort in shading is less for me than normal layered painting. I also like the lustre that oils give.

  2. Good luck with the Landsknechts, I'm sure you'll be addicted to them in no time.
