Anybody ever dealt with these people, or know anything about them?

You mean they will be using Ouija boards instead of Tarot cards for their business plans from now on?

I have not, but I know others who have. I've never heard anything bad.

Many (most? all?) of the figures were sculpted by Mark Sims, who has his own company, Crusader, and used to sculpt for Foundry.

I've been eyeing up some of the Macedonians, and when I eventually place an order I'll probably pick up a packs from some of the other lines as well.

That's interesting.
I think we have discussed Crusader before and I am not a great fan as the heads on some ranges seem overlarge.

However I do have some Crusader El Cid Spanish I picked up as part of an ebay deal and they are ok.

You sure you're not thinking of Renegade?

Crusader stuff looks fine. Nothing wrong with it at all.

They took ages when I ordered some stuff a while ago. When I emailed them they said they'd had a lot of orders.

Perry is a part time business. They get to it when they finish the day job at GW.

I bought mine from Caliver - £16.00 per box and free postage, and I go them before Christmas ...........

I was talking about the metal men-at-arms though. I don't have the plastic set.

I would agree....a German looks better than a Swiss on any day.

I've had no problem with Perry. I ordered the metal men at arms, very nice they are too, and they arrived in a few days.

I have also had a box of the mercenaries from Maelstrom which I got before Xmas. I'm waiting for a second box now as I've painted 24 of the first box already for my empire of Wolves mercenary army. Hailing from the border princes and ready to serve who ever pays the most. The Perry minis make excellent models for it.

Not sure about those Swiss. The Germans look great, I've got a blisters worth. I used TAG halberds to make them into empire halberdiers, old school style ones. I think they might get a Hochland paint scheme as it's one of the few provinces that I don't have any troops from.
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

Does anyone know of any historical figures /ranges that could be used as Flagellants/Zealots?

Cathars are really interesting. But as far as I know they had the same stuff as their enemies, the papal crusaders.

I converted some ancient germans and celts which came out ok.

About half way down the page.

Indeed. That's even the source of the phrase, "kill them all, God will know his own."

I don't believe there were ever any flegglers/flagellants in combat that I'm aware of. They were a (sort of) religious movement, not a military one.

Ideally I would like to find some figures that appear to be wearing Capirote (sp?) - I have an old citadel Acolyte from the Shadows over Bogenhafen leading a unit of Flaggies, but would like an entire unit of something similar. Perhaps there is a Pulp range that does 'Clansmen' that I could convert.

I think the KKK imagery may have made it rare - the old 40k redemptionists are close, and then there were Mordheim models.

Not seen anything I can recall in my 'occasional'  :engel: wanderings around the miniatures sites, but there may be something in the modern or steam punk stuff that I do not pay much attention to.
I will try to browse a bit for you though ..............  :closed-eyes:

Found this latest update on the Conquest Games site.

A command set to follow their basic knights set.

There's also talk of clerics and civilians which I assume is in the pipeline with their planned Norman Infantry set.

Yet more Perry goodness!

In addition to metal halberdiers & pikemen, they've released several packs of separate halberds and pavises. And Swiss heads for use with the plastic kits. Very good stuff once again
