I needed a couple of artillery pieces for my Spanish army, and these models from Essex Miniatures caught my eye:
Even though I only require two for the Spanish list, I have done six as a few will find use in other Medieval projects I have ahead of me:
Essex figures can be an acquired taste and the pointing figure seems to turn up in a few ranges, but their artillery pieces are very nice. I particularly like the siege guns, and the two with the mantlets are probably my favourite with the wood grain nicely sculpted and just pronounced enough for dry-brushing to bring it out:
That's the artillery for this project completed:
Next up will be the last group of Spanish required, which are some lighter javelin-armed troops. I also have sixteen Swiss mercenaries to complete however which, while not strictly Spanish, are an option under the DBMM Spanish lists. I was aiming to complete the entire project by the end of August and, depending how the weekend goes, might get close.
