Every Battle goes better with Gunpowder

A group of Italian matchlock men ready their pieces in one of the countless battles among the city states of Italy.

With the early matchlock, gunpowder became a true power on the battle field. Heavy armor could not stop a matchlock ball and soon the day of the heavy armored knight and man-at-arms was coming to a close.

These are 25mm metal figures from Hinchcliffe that I painted in the early 1980's.
