Hussite Handgunners

I don't have a Hussite army but I couldn't resist the Kingmaker handgunners at a show last year. Whilst the figures are nice, the real selling point is the shields and their fabulous designs. These are from the Little Big Men range. 1st Corps have now taken over Kingmaker. They do some monster war wagons as well.

I thought the raised boss would be a real problem, but a couple of snips with the sissors at each end and then tapering down with a steel rule before applying water sorted them.

Any way I am very pleased with them, although not sure what I will use them for. Probably appear as mercenaries in one of my 15th Century Balkan armies. Now there is a surprise!
