Added to our Workbench feature today are twelve new 28mm miniatures suitable for the Italian Wars. These three new packs are for the period 1495 – 1530. Firstly we have two new packs of crossbowmen which the Italians used in large numbers early in the period. They are in standing and firing poses, and are unarmoured and in a selection of hats. Secondly we have a pack of four Italians armed with swords and bucklers. Swordsmen were used by most mainland Italian states, as well as by Venetian Colonial forces in the Adriatic. Swords armed troops would also be handy for naval actions against Turkish galleys and Corsairs.
