.... I might be able to use Celts as marauders in the future or something... Maybe...

Why bother with Chaos Mathi, just use them as Empire swordsmen & spearmen and call them allies or auxiliaries from Albion.

Too bad no one ever buys me miniatures or gaming stuff for Christmas!  :-(




I hear ya!

Still, hadn't it been for my new found love for 40K Orks I would probably have succumbed to those lovely plastic Romans.

You wimps - call yourself men and gamers ........ :icon_rolleyes:

How many times do we have to remind you of the great resources on this site:

http://www.warhammer-empire.com/library/danse/christmas.php

I had a large packet arrive last week - my wife has been given the various boxes contained within to various relatives in exchange for money assuring them that my visible ecstasy on opening their gifts will be wonderful.

I have been doing the annual rehearsal of the immortal line from the above dissertation -
 
“Oh fabulous, I have wanted this ............."

in the mirror for the last few days ......

Now see, at that point, I may as well just buy the stuff myself, wrap it up, put it under the tree, open it and act surprised on Christmas morning.

 :-P

In fact, maybe I should do that. "Ooooh! Look what I got me! Just what I wanted all year! This is the best Christmas ever!" That would probably asking for domestic/family trouble, though.  :unsure:

When my kids were younger that was exactly what happened.

According to the labels, I had presents from Santa, then Sigmar, and the "Emperor" .................

However as they get older you have to be a little more devious conciliatory ...........

Since I won't be buying the Artizan figures for a while, I decided to work on something I've already got in order to satisfy the landsknechty urges. At first I was considering converting some of the 5th edition plastic state troop stash.

But instead I cleaned assembled a pack of 30 Old Glory pikemen. I'm pleasantly surprised. I have only cleaned & primed them so far, but they really look good. I'll post some photos in the B&P when I'm done. (After the holidays.)

I got a bag of them a while ago and was also pleasantly surpirsed by them

Bonus is they pretty much rank up together too.

Yeah, I like the angle of the pike. It's more dynamic than just standing upright, but they're still high enough you can move your troops into contact with each other.

They've posted some more pics of new figures and a second regiment deal at the Artizan page:

'No Stock' it appears, so probably WiP

I've just emailed to see if they do an 'army deal' on the advancing pike.
I fancy the 'standing' regiment, but not the 'attacking' one - you'd charge something and still be 3" away  :icon_wink:

They also seem to have the extra armoured packs available now to supplement the regiment.

I've had a very speedy reply:

"There will be. Once the moulds are made I'll add an advancing regiment, so keep an eye on the site in the next couple of weeks."

I'm tempted to buy a set of all three, and add a few extra armoured models - you could have a couple of nice 30+ man strong units.

I have a question!

Does anyone know where to purchase 28mm scale British American Civil War heads with tricorne hats?

Our club is starting to bubble over Black Powder.  :-D

Ehhh... you mean American war of independence? They did not have tricorns at the civil war, unless you where a century behind in fashion.  :engel:

Anything useful to add?  :engel:

Aye, the idea was to get lots of plastic Napoleonics and use tricorne hats. Fortunately only The Other at my club is anal enough to refuse to play against that.

Someone else is using un-converted British Line Infantry from the Napoleonic period for the AWI British.

Totally unrelated to AWI or Naps... I'm drooling over the new Ancient Empire Germans at Crusader. I was going to place an order with them in the next few weeks. (My OG discount card expires soon so I want to take advantage of cheaper prices while I can!) But my plan was to jump into Macedonians/Successors. But now I'm seriously thinking about adding to the German horde instead. Oh the painful dilemma...

As beautiful as the Artizan Landsknechts and Perry Wars of the Roses figures look, they're going to have to wait until next year due to my wedding sapping my gaming budget for this year (at least  :ph34r: ) Unless someone buys me a boatload of landsknechts for a wedding gift or something like that.

I got my hands on just a few of the Artizan landsknechts. I'm very impressed. Now I'm having even more trouble keeping focused on the things I need to get done first. :|

I'll eventually post some pics & a review on my blog, plus a special little something for W-E...

Did yours have a lot of flash on them? Mine did.

I've only got four figures so far. Only one of the four had significant flash -- flat sheet type flash around one side of the neck and at the crotch. The other three had only very minor mould lines. All cleaned up easy.
