Preparation for Crisis

We are now painting and modelling for our new early renaissance demo for the Crisis show, As it is now only two weeks we are still painting figures, modelling terrain and neglecting our wifes. Which is a normal thing for wargames preparing for a show, I supppose.
The theme of the demo will be a  "what if" scenario in 1507 and will be depicting troops from Gueldres and France against Imperial troops.
Some pictures of the preparations

Exhibition about Gueldres

In the Franz Pfanner Huis in Arcen, Netherlands, an exhibion was organised about the history of the Overkwartier van Gelre (or Gueldres). As the historical Gueldres is now partly Dutch while other parts are Germany, this exhibition was both in Dutch and German.
As Venlo, our home town, was situated in the Overkwartier our model of Venlo, used in our 28mm medieval demo, was used in the exhibion.
Some pictures are underneath.
