28mm Foundry Landsknecht Arquebusiers - Work in Progress

I'm currently working on a Landsknecht arquebus unit for my Italian Wars project. The going is rather slow, but I'm plodding along at a fairly steady pace.  Nonetheless, I thought I'd post a few work-in-progress pics of the first four gunners of the group. 

I'm having fun with their riotous clothing, but I must say after doing a few figures my mind starts to turn to mush trying to think of interesting colour combinations. All I can say is thank goodness for Pinterest for providing a bewildering assortment of Landsknechts images  - I think I'd run out of ideas without some outside inspiration.

I have no idea if the trippy painted woodstocks are historically accurate, but I've seen them on other sites so I'm running with it.

There will probably be around 16 figures in the unit, all on a single base similar to my other units. I'll post the next set when they're done.

Have a great week everyone!
