Renaissance Knights from Wargames Foundry. Heavy plate, metal barding and lances: Everything I think of when I think of a true and proper knight! I had considered doing these in an array of colors, but thought I would settle on a single paint scheme for rapid identification instead. Besides, this is my first attempt and I wanted something fairly simple. The lances were done by painting them white, sealing them with dullcote, wrapping them in some masking tape and then painting them again in blue. The result was a passable spiral pattern, and something I intend to perfect with time.
I based them as a CP unit for Impetus, and intend on adding at least three more stands to achieve my 300 pt armies for the period. My only limitation thus far is a complete absence of appropriate mounted Harquebus/dragoons for the time period. Everything I find is either a Ritter with pistols or Dragoons for the 17th century. Does anyone know of a good 28mm 16th century mounted X-bow or Handgunner?
