Bought some Kingmaker Hussites a while back. Painted a few at the time but got distracted with other projects. A few pics of the ones I painted are shown below. (Some of these were posted on the Steve Dean forum some time ago.)
Jan Zizka - military leader of the Hussite Army
Next up a couple of Knights
Shield and barding transfers by LBM Studios.
Last year I spent the New Year period in Prague and came back keen to do more Hussites. I visited a travelling 'Hussite Wars' exhibition which was held on 3 floors of one of Prague's famous powder towers and it was fantastic - full of artefacts, information, re-enactors etc, etc. I also bought the trilogy of films on the Hussites (Jan Hus, Jan Zizka and Proti vsem - Against All .) The key battle scenes are available on youtube and are quite atmospheric.
(Type in Battle of Sudomer on youtube and you'll get the battle scenes.)
When I returned I painted up a few more samples - see below.
I have recently found the black undercoated Hussite figs tucked in amongst my Normans so have painted a few more as they are easy to paint alongside the Normans - same technique and painting style. When the basing is complete I'll post some pics.
I must mention that the inspiration and colour schemes on the above figures came from the fantastic work of Eric Bonsell - if I had not seen his work on the Kingmaker website I may never have bought the figures or looked further into this fascinating period in history.
Next up some peasants/ women from the Hussite wars.
