The first unit of what will be the army of Gonzalo de Cordoba for my Italian Wars project. I aim to do both sides for the Battle of Cerignola 1503, in my opinion one of the most pivotal battles during the series of conflicts we call The Italian Wars. After his defeat at the hands of the French and Swiss at the Battle of Seminara 1503 Gonzalo put into place plans to employ his smaller force more efficiently in a defensive manner. He significantly lengthened the pike, equipped his men with more arquebus' and enlarged his artillery train and set his army firmly on the defensive. The addition of mercenary Landsknechts to further bolster his forces. It was in this way that Gonzalo was to send the forces of Louis de Armagnac, Duc de Nemour's overwhelming numbers of a mix of French and Swiss reeling and into eventual retreat. If not annihilation in the case of the Swiss.

Those look great! The flags are fantastic too. I think Gonzalo would be proud to see 'em.

Spanish fury – a key part of Spain's moving castles – great unit and amazing brushwork – also love the big banners

Thanks guys- appreciated as always :)

Talking of which, I'm planning on using the last miniature on the right with a few scattered in from different companies as a "El Gran Capitán" command base. More on that later, but for now:

As a scholar who has written several papers on Gonzalo and will eventually publish more findings I love when gamers focus on this period. Beautiful, museum quality miniatures. I have armies for the period in 15mm. But your 28mms are spectacular!

Thanks you all :)

Do you have a link to or a list of your works (and publishers) please? I would be *very* helpful for me if I could read more. There's really not a lot except the "classics" out there in English.
