War of the Roses 28mm longbowmen, final touches, and me as a sailorman...

Final part of our painting guide for these 28mm miniatures.
Mainly longbowmen with a small mix of spearmen and billmen.
They will be beased on 12cm bases. In this way I' ll be able to use them
for Impetus and DBA with larger bases...

Here are the other five parts of the painting guide...
...and a bunch of pics for your curiosity...

And now some pics of a regatta, taken by our Cioporeporter...where I partecipated as...fourth of the crew...
"I' m Popeye the Sailorman...I' m Popeye the Sailorman"...substitute "Popeye" with "Marzio"...

The third day of the America' s Cup World Series, Saturday, some friends invited me to this
"free class" regatta. So no AC45 catamarans pics this time but "I' m the sailorman" pics...

The regatta started near Nisida, Naples, and the finish line was near Procida island,
in the Gulf of Naples. 11 miles in the gulf. A sunny day and a, more or less, quiet sea...

Go!...

The crew...Egidio, Marco and Giuseppe...

Happy Wargaming to All!

  2. I like those spearman a lot. The tips of those weapons look fierce.

    1. I like the spearmen too...but I rely on the longbowmen to stop the enemy on the battleground... ;-)

      And for a well lived life...it' s simple...some friends, some opportunities and joie de vivre...it helps :-)

      Marzio.
