Italian Wars- Spanish Trastámara Italian Wars Ordinance Gun

Postby Atheling » Mon Jan 17, 2022 8:29 am

Hi,

A bit of a long story so please defer to my blog article for info. This is my latest piece for the Spanish in Italy, Italian Wars project and also The Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge.

My Just Add Water Blog link to the full article:

As usual the castings from The Assault Group were very crisp and required very minimal cleaning up which is always great. Bad castings can take a long time to clean up properly, especially if they have been cast in old moulds or the metal was too hot and you get "pitting", which required hours of filling in gaps, smoothing them down etc. It can be a bit of a nightmare. I'm very pleased to say that this has never been my experience with Pete's Assault Group models.

Without further ado I present to you my latest addition to my Spanish Italian Wars army:

Lovely stuff!
Glad you decided to stick with it after all. :D
It's ages since I bought any TAG stuff for the Italian Wars. I declared my armies in this scale complete , played about three games and they haven't been out of the box since. :(

I have this horrible urge to start collecting again now I've seen these.

Thanks :) Nothing like a catastrophic varnishing F up to make you lose a bit of hope.

I'm sure they will be popping out of the box quite soon. The TAG stuff is too nice to be sitting dormant for too long :)

And rightly so sir! :twisted:

Did you fix the problem of the varnish on those figures?

Yeah, not on these as they were varnished in a hurry but I'm back to my usual technique of Humbrol DIY Gloss brush on and W&N Pro Matt for matting down.

All is well again in the world of varnishing :)
