Painting Landsknechts Article

The April issue of Wargames Illustrated (WI 330) is themed around mercenaries and within its pages is a newly commissioned  'painting landsknechts' article by me.

This came about in part as a result of my sister blog, Painting Landsknechts

I had few constraints on article size so I'm quite pleased with the result as I was able to try and fully express my thoughts on the subject. There are also a good number of photographs of my collection as well as individual studies throughout the magazine. It's good to see the period get some attention.

Feedback is always appreciated, let me know what you think.

Bye for now



  1. Lovely brushwork - pure artistry . Looks like Renaissance tapestry.

  2. Great work and hobby visibility well deserved!

  3. i had a sneaky feeling that your work may be featured when I saw the theme of the new WI. Excellent stuff matey! :>)

    Can't wait to get a copy now- went to smiths yesterday and it wasn't out :>(


  4. Whilst we're on the subject of sister blogs, what do you think of having a sister blog for your sculpting work Stuart?

    It would be inspirational. And easy to find and follow ;>)


  5. Congratulations and well deserved! I'm sure many aspiring Italian Wars painters will find the article immensely useful.


  6. Exellent Stuart ! Looking forward to read your article indeed !

  7. Managed to get a copy a couple of days ago. It's certainly a landmark article. Congratulations!
