    Italian Wars

    After a few false starts I’ve finally got my Great Italian Wars project underway.  I’m mainly using Venexia figures with a few from Blue Moon and Alternative Armies and elsewhere.

    I’m intending to put together Spanish, Imperial, Italian and French armies.  Also, I thought I’d have a go at writing a set of rules for the period.

    If it is of interest here is a link to my progress so far.

    A favorite period of mine! I game a fantasy version at 6mm scale, but still, a kindred project to my own!


    I hope you’ll post about it here – I have way more blogs to follow than I can possibly imagine and I’d hate to lose track of this one.

    I have the figures to exactly the same thing.  I have a reasonable sized ‘Imperial’ army already painted and have the metal to do the other major combatants.

     

    Will follow with excitement

    Thanks Warren.  Another installment next week.  I’ve been thinking about heraldry for the Spanish noble cavalry.

    24-element army so Big Battle DBA size, which I think is a handy size for an army.  IMHO the rules give a good period flavour for the Italian Wars but take a bit of getting used to.  I don’t know any other rules that are suitable although FURIOSO has generated a lot of interest recently; not played it so cannot comment on it.  Other rules seem to me to be too generic so are either ‘Ancients’ or ‘Renaissance’.
