This really is a very inspiring army you're putting together.

Amazing.  :ph34r:
Can't wait for the next report!  :smile2:

All hose images reminded me of this wonderful battle scene: Battle of the Ice Teutonic knights do look like chaos knights here, don't they?

You may try asking around if anyone has spare crossbow arms from building the kits with different configurations. Might take a while to get 30, though...

Padre, I recommend adding Front Rank to your future searches, if you haven't already looked at them previously. (Unfortunately in this case, they don't have any fully armoured crossbowmen - just light armour or breast plates. )

Sounds like it might be a pain to get this project off the ground at the moment haha. Maybe I might just buckle and pick up those Front Rank Mini's you mentioned to padre, they look pretty cool even if lightly armored. Do the banner carriers they sell come with the flag poles or do you purchase those separately?

Perry Foot Knights 1450-1500 with crossbows from the Perry Mercenaries 1450-1500 box? You also get pavise shields from the Mercenary box. You can buy 1450-1500 commands per sprue, if you like to mix smaller amounts of figures/bits from the different boxes. The Mercenary command especially is useful, as the pavises are there. You can also get the sprues from a couple of internet sellers, if you want the rank-and-file knight bodies, the mercenary crossbows, and/or to add to the order useful stuff from other companies.

Perry whould be compatible with Foundry 28mm scale. Not so with GW 28mm scale (in my opinion), unless you mix with real DoW figures, which were more real scale 28mm than the Fantasy line.

The perry foot knights look perfect, 38 in a box is excellent because I need about 30 to make a unit for free guild Crossbowmen. I'm not too worried about the pavise shields I only really wanted armored crossbowman, the problem now is I'm having a hard time finding the crossbow arms sprues online.

Not sure what words to use in describing this. I read this over the last couple of days with the site open the whole time. Night reads, breaks and lunch at work and finally after dinner tonight. Magnificent and what an end fight. Congrats on this masterpiece.

I finished up my Goblin rocket team or rather "skyrocket" as its refereed to in 3rd edition. Nice little model, easy to paint up which provided a quick little interlude while I sort out and clean up all my wolf riders.


I'm a little at odds with a couple of the goblins, while I like the miniatures in general Im not too keen on the binoculars and goggles a little too WoW for me.

I know none of those are particularly heavily armoured but it was a coincidence that you too were looking for Tilean type crossbowmen so I was spurred by your post to reveal to all my researches.

Only yesterday I was scouring the net for 'city militia' style crossbowmen for my Tilean Campaign. I also had my Perry sprues out to count the number of crossbow arms I had.

I have already made some Perry xbows (kitbashed with some GW crossbowmen arms) for the Compagnie del Sole:



In the end though I couldn't be bothered with more cutting and glueing and trimming of plastic, so I looked at metal alternatives.

I already have some Mirliton ...



The following pics being on their site, which I really like:




I looked at some of the slightly unusual 'Casting Room Miniatures' (accessed via the Wargames Foundry page)




But in the end I ordered some Perry Metals ...


Two packs, plus the Mirliton I already have, throw in some command, and I'll have a unit of 20.
