Again, not the Italian Wars but at least this fella fought in Italy for a bit. This is a couple of Perry figures painted to represent Rene II duke of Lorraine in the Burgundian Wars. The crest is from Mirliton. the figures still need to be based  and should be completed by the end of he week. So far I've completed 6 flags of Swiss commanders from the Burgundian Wars and will probably paint another half dozen. I took the design for this flag following advice given on TMP, here's the link if anyone's interested:

I know that this is not the Italian Wars but it's not too far removed. I was asked to paint some flags for the Swiss commanders of the Burgundian  Wars and this is the first completed one. The other's are almost finished with the flag  for Rene of Loraine being a real pain. This figure is represents Adrian von Bubenberg, Swiss commander at Morat . The figure is a Perry plastic man at arms with a metal Swiss head.

These are the first figures painted for the Peasant's wars dioramas that if all's well will tour the peasant wars museums in Germany in 2014. I'll post pics of the figures as and when they get completed, figures by Doug Miller.
