My main aim is collecting and researching the armies, I love as much variety as possible in the armies so like to use as many manufacturers as possible to show the colourful variety of the period.
I am finding it difficult not to start my Italian Wars stuff at the moment, your Blog has encourage me to get some stuff out and start painting!
who makes the castle?
The castle is a mix of a couple of the old Mighty Fortresses by Games Workshop, that I bought off Ebay, a few pieces from the Battlements Range, a Keep by Hudson and Allen and a few other hand made pieces from Ebay. I painted them all in the same stone colour to make it look more like one building. At some point I intend to do a post of the castle in detail and the different set ups that it can make.
Good luck with your Italian wars stuff, its a great period with lots of new miniatures coming out for it in 28mm at the moment as well as some classic old ranges that still look great.
Going through your archive some really great stuff here.
You must be really pleaseD
