Dismounted Men-At-Arms (unit #4)

Impetus Unit Type: FP
Base Size: 8cm x 3cm
Manufacturer: Corvus Belli
A pious mercenary? It's possible, isn't it? Perhaps this gentlemen fights as a mercenary and gives part of his share to Mother Church. Or for more cynical readers, we could assume that the kneeling knight is a hypocritical fool who puts on a sanctimonious show while burning, pillaging, and amassing wealth. So, he's on the way to becoming a medieval bishop then :)

It's been close to a year since I finished the first 400-point chunk of my Free Company army for Impetus. Now that I've been playing the army for a while, I realize how well heavy foot works in concert with formed missile units, especially since new rules amendments were released in Extra Impetus #3. With that in mind, it was time to add a fourth unit of heavy foot so that each unit of archers would have its own dedicated unit of men-at-arms.

Beautiful as always Jet!

My first set of bases for Impetus are in the mail - now just need to get cracking with the paint.

Thank you.

Remind me again... what army are you painting?
