Renaissance in 6mm - Crossbows and Handguns


Time to add some missile troops to support the pikes!  I've added two (T) stands each of handguns and Crossbows to augment the (S) stands that come with the blocks.
The packs only come with 2 poses (1 loading, 1 firing) for each missile type.  I opted to go with 20 figures each, with a strong firing line forward and mixed personnel behind preparing their weapons.  I think the mix of colors, and spacing helps to add some variety to the limited stances.

For the handgunners I went with the same mix of colors I did for most of the landsknecht.  For the crossbows, I tried to go a little more uniformity.  I have one stand to match my black legion:

And another to match some of my 'swiss'


I only have enough figs for about 1 more block at this point (to include skirmishers).  If I can get them done in April than maybe I will have some time before the cavalry are released.

  1. Good additions! How large has the 6mm Renaissance collection become?

  2. Currently at 6 pike blocks (three FP stands +2 S stands), 4 (T), 2 FP Halberdiers, 2 FP Foot Knights and 4 Cannon Stands. I have enough figures left over to get 2 more pike blocks. When the cavalry comes out, it should be enough to play some small games.

    2. As I said in the past, these are investments for when my eyes are too blind to see and my hands tremble too much to hold the brush.

    1. I am rather fond it. It is the ideal scale for playtesting and solo gaming as well.
