Leonardo Da Vinci and his Tank in 15mm painted by Steve Dean

 
Our fantastic 15mm scale renaissance fantasy packs have been painted up by the multi-talented Steve Dean! Leonardo Da Vinci and his proposed design for a tank too. You can visit the original post on Steve's forums HERE. In this short article I have put up the images from that forum post for you to enjoy. 





Steve plays a lot of different periods and paints a huge array of different miniatures. His intention here is to add these to his fantasy armies in 15mm scale. To that end using his 'Bitz Box' he made some alterations to the standard miniatures and model. Da Vinci himself is mounted on a different horse to the one we supply and the Tank has a very nice and ornate top piece added. As well as this banner top piece the front of the tank has a crest added. It shows just what you can do with this model. Enjoy the pictures and thanks Steve! 



Above you can see our own version of the Tank and of the inventor, artist and great man himself too. These show what you will get (unpainted and unassembled) when you order the packs from us.

You can purchase one pack or click on the drop down menu to select 'buy three save 10%' option for more value! 

Thanks for Reading,

    1. Isn't it just! I like both versions, Steve's and Sam Croes too. Steve really made it his own.

  2. That is great! I like the colourful take on it, which I think would be "realistic" for how showy the military was at the time. I asked for this set for Xmas... alas my wife missed the hint thoroughly :/

    2. Just received both sets... Great stuff! I'm definitely going for the colourful look. I'll have to practice painting the Duke of Milan's colours and crest.
