Spanish Spearmen 2


Fresh off the painting table a second unit of Spanish Spearmen.  I can also field them as two separate units or as one large one as depicted here. That's enough heavy infantry for the moment, but I will add another large unit at a later date. Now it's on to some skirmishers to meet my prerequisites in unit choices. I'm feeling the squeeze as the game day is fast approaching so I'd better cross my fingers and knuckle down.

The flag is a bit bigger on this unit then the other one to show it's a command base and I added a Cantador(Bard) to inspire the men and to bolster their spirits.

Like the rest of the army ap was used with highlights added and all shields and banners are hand painted to keep the army theme. The colours I used were once again Foundry with some Vallejo.

Thanks for viewing!:-)

  3. Christopher - they looks fantastic. I love the colours, and the Cantador in the front rank is really terrific! Super groundwork as well. First class all round, in fact!

  15. Wonderful! I love your color selections and the small palette really pulls them all together. The purple is lovely to look at, as are all of your shields. And the bard, well, perfection!
