German Peasants 16th Century

Set 3 sculpted by Alex for  Germania Figuren,  and represent German peasants from the period of the Deutscher Bauernkrieg (German peasant war 1524-1526) This insurection followed similar goals and tactics as with the Hussite wars and met the same end.....defeat. Still...they had a go :-D

They aren´t based yet as they will be based as a group.
The weapons look lethal. Imagine having the staff club bounced off your head!!!
They have some great little details...like the rips and tears in the clothing

Part 4 of the Pirate Cutter. Most of the hull is now finished..steps, cargohold cover,  a door etc need adding

  2. History is full of insurrection that met defeat but a few that didn't and that's what they fought for, great work Paul!

  5. "The peasents are revolting"

    They have always been revolting, but now they are rebelling!

    Sorry could not resist.

    Love the colours and figures, you take great looking figures and make a real statement with them.

      I´ve considered it but seeing as it is a cutter...I´m not sure.

  7. Great job: both on the peasants (who probably won't be smiling for very long), and the WOW...scratchbuild ship. Both endeavors are SWEET! The hull planking paint is going to look fabulous!

  9. Paul - it's sites like yours that simultaneously inspire and depress me.

    Inspire me to strive to achieve a painting standard near to yours.

    Depress me because I know it will take me ages to achieve anything like your standard.

    Keep up the good work! :)

  10. You did a great job on these Paul. I thought you were using other bases. Will you base them on a vignette?

  11. The pirate cutter looks great so far. But are the holes for the canons not to small?

      They will be based , for impetus..maybe as levy for the burgundian army.
      The gunprts...it´s a fishing boat (cutter9 converted to the pirates devious deeds. The gunports were quite small anyway, even on big ships of the line, just enough room to poke the cannon barrel out to avoid any big chunks of flying debris coming in in a battle.
