So far, in our Spanish Century extension to our Renaissance range, of 28mm miniatures, we have concentrated on the Spaniards themselves, Conquistadors for the New World and the Neapolitans, for Continental Europe.
Today we can start to show-off what we have planned for the first of the 'armies and enemies', the Italians.
Italy was a divided nation at the start of the period which these miniatures will cover (1495 - 1525), with many small City States competing for dominance on the peninsula.
Milan, Florence, Sienna, the Papal state and many others strived to exert there own personal agendas, to the over-all weakness of all. The major Modern Nations of Spain and France viewed them greedily for expansion.
The miniatures on show below are;
Papal Guard (who fought bravely for Clement VII in defence of Rome in 1527)
Arquebusiers (the Italians were the first to use them in large numbers)
