Elizabethan Zombie Wars - The Cardinals Black Guard.
As June comes to an end the last of the Spanish come off the paint table for the Elizabethan Zombie Wars. These were a gift from way back when Covid19 was a foot note on the overseas new reports.
I wanted to give these mounted Arquebusiers a dark feel to them so the creation of the Cardinal's Guard seemed to be the perfect vehicle for these Spanish troops.
Mounted on Warhorses and armed with the latest in Imperial firearms they should be a useful addition to the Spanish invaders and be a tough opponent for the English and the Undead.
The uniforms are styled on a number of the musketeer movies as after all the villains are always dressed in black :-)
The standard and bugler are matched to the colours of the existing foot troops. The leader of the cavalry troop are led by Capt Tadeo Sancho a seriously nasty piece of work.
Meanwhile a cavalry troop need something to escort so why not a wagon...
A nice piece of kit from the guys at Warlord. I am sure it will come in handy in future scenario's.
So June is over....
A good month clearing down a number of "fillers" from the Far East to Africa, next up a trip to Egypt with either more Ottomans for the 1798 French expedition or with Infamy Infamy landing today perhaps 1300BC and the New Kingdom Egyptians and Hittites, with a couple of tweaks to make the rules fit the period.
Either way July will be Hot, Sunny and Sandy......
