Foundry swashbuckler

Don't worry; I still have that other halberdier sitting on the table. This guy just sneaked in. He was already based and primed, and he fits my current D&D character, so I wanted to paint him up quick to get him into the game.

He comes from Foundry's Elizabethan Sea Dogs range (probably Foundry's last really good range.) I have a few more sea dogs primed and/or based. My original intent a few years ago was to paint up a bunch of random renaissance figures (including some of those older Games Workshop Empire pieces) to play some renaissance street skirmishes (think Romeo and Juliet). I was going to use Two Hour Wargames' Chain Reaction Swordplay ruleset. But I just never got around to finishing these figures, until now. I had around a dozen figures to go. And this week, I've painted 4 of those.


  1. I agree with you about foundry for sure. I have the Sea Dogs. They are awesome.

    Something really fun about the Rennaisance. Wandering the streets of Florence, brawling and carousing. Reminds me a little of what I been seeing my son do on Assassins Creed II.

    Nice fig. GW also had a really similar guy long ago in the empire range.

  2. Some Montague v. Capulet action would be a nice change of pace. I have more than one figure in my DnD box that could pass for a Renaissance Florentine, I think I'll steal this idea. >yoink< :)

  3. Lovely job. These figures have real character and swagger. I think I am going to use mine for skirmishes with Brazilian indians.
