28mm Hussite artillery gun and crew

I have just finished this gun crew. I painted the trumpeters last week. The minis are all from the Front Rank Miniatures Wars of the Roses line. The gun is my very old Minifgs gun.

The Master Gunner 28mm Medieval

Here is the latest 28mm mini I have painted. It is the 'Master Gunner' from Front Rank Miniatures War of the Roses Line. The gun is a very old Minifigs model that I have had for more than 30 years.

25mm/28mm Medieval Swiss

Here are some Swiss I have painted in the last few days. The figures are a mixture of Perry's and my own homemade home-cast minis. I have used some Perry heads on my homemade minis as well.

Here are some more of my growing Hussite collection. These two ladies are about to teach the knight a lesson he will not forget. The women are 1st Corps minis, the downed knight is a Perry mini. This little vignette is part of a larger base of Hussite minis.

Citadel Treemen

Hope you all had a great Christmas.

Some additions to an Old School Wood Elves army I am putting together.
Three Treemen and a Treeman lord - "Durthu". The Wood Elf archer was included as a scale reference.

I looked through lots of images on painted examples of treemen and it was surprising how many did not look the way I expected. Lots of greys, reds and unusual combos. They look skillfully done and artistic but not the way I imagined them. I went with more traditional browns and more subtle contrasts to tie them into the Wood Elf figures I've already done.

As someone who has never painted 'monsters' before, I was surprised how much I enjoyed doing these guys. Something like 4 days from start to finish
It was fun to experiment with various washes and building up shading and texture.

Hope you like the results.

28mm Hussite Crossbows

Here are the first of the 28mm Hussite Crossbows I have painted. I used LBM transfers for the Pavises. The minis are 1st Corps.
