|This is a WIP of my attempt to make a 28mm representation of Ludovico Gonzaga at the Battle of Caravaggio 1448. I'm using Massimo Predonzani's illustration in his book on the battle which can be obtained from here http://www.aciesedizioni.it/caravaggio1448-ita.htm as mu guide.|
The figure is Perry plastic with a Mirliton crest and tabard made from green stuff. The horse was originally meant for Ridolfo Gonzaga at Fornovo but a quick paint job will cover the red and white. The barding was made from the Italian armour in the boxed set with all the details sliced off with a scalpel and then filed smooth, thinned with a pair of long nose pliers and trimmed to shape. I'll finish the edging on the armour when the greenstuff has dried.
