Hello everybody, I just wanted to urge you all to check out my new blog. I will be addressing various topics in the period 1500- 1900. My first posts will mostly be about the Italian Wars and will deal with the information on dress and armament that I have been able to collect. I am just starting out, so any advice would be appreciated. Also, please let me know if you have any information to add, or any corrections to offer. Thanks! Link: https://ageofbattles.wordpress.com

Thanks for sharing your information. You are off to a great start with your blog. No advise to offer, other than just continue to build your blog and incorporate miniatures if you are a gamer.

Excellent start. Very informative and certainly very useful to the wargaming community.

Dito. Great information there!

Thanks everybody! It's good to hear that there's some interest. I may post some miniatures as well if I can figure out a way to photograph them.

Good to have so many of these in an easy to access form.

My only suggestion is that for pics like the one of Alesia it would be nice to either have some way of seeing an enlarged version, even if it a link to somewhere else.

Well done! I second the comment about being able to click on the image to enlarge it to see the detail.

Thanks for sharing this info and beautiful pics.
There can never be enough material to inspire us for this colourful and overall interesting period.

One of the kite shields has a point that appears to bend forward like those of Spanish soldiers in 'Saint George' by Pedro Nisart, Mallorca, Spain, c.1468-70

Good eye on that, I have always assumed that these things were artistic convention. When you see something enough though…
