The Empire finally get new knights! Thanks Michael & Alan!  :wink:

I've also been dying to see someone do a plastic AWI range. I've been contemplating going with 15mm, which is more practical anyway, but maybe I will consider the big guys after a few of their plastic sets come out.

Also, less related, Warlord is doing plastic Macedonian pikemen. They come armed with electrical poles, however. You will have to snip those off and replace them with your own in-scale pikes. Unless you want your MacEdonians looking like they're competing in a caber toss.  :engel:

Yes!  AWI 28mm plastics!  How could I forget?  I saw them, but got lost in all those Napoleonics.

By the way, the mounted men-at-arms for 1450-1500 look great, although they don't appear to have barding.

I have a feeling that I read in the accompanying blurb, that barding is part of the kit - you can add it if you wish.

That looks like a sweet deal! :icon_biggrin:

Course then, if you don't have some already, you'll need some Moors to fight against them on the table top ...

Feast your eyes on these!  :biggriin:

Pre-View: Renaissance Civilians

Hello all together,

I got the new greens (or greys?) from Paul Hicks on the 16th of April at Salute. And I am sure you will agree that he has done a wonderful job on them! It was my highlight of Salute to get the new civilians in my hand.

The miniatures will be send to Griffin moulds tomorrow and I will get a huge stock from them.
I have taken some pictures with the miniature including the final codes and blister names. Each blister will cost 5,95 (around 5,20 or 8,50$). Command sets, civilians and other small-needed-amount miniatures will be a bit more expensive. For core infantry I will try to keep the price as low as possible.

Once I get the message from Griffin that the moulds and castings are finish you can pre-order these lovely miniatures.

But now up to the pictures.

LC 01 - Beyond Good & Evil: This is a set including a priest with a wine cup, cross and long coat, a strupet pulling up her cloth, an horroractor with his beastmask on and a beggar. This set represents - as the title says - the down and ups of the renaissance.



LC 02 - Countryside: This set includes a hunter with his lovely huntingdog (hound from eBob), a lumberjack marching out to cut some wood and a peasant with his typical sword and a basket full of goods.



LC 03 - Citylife I: This blisters includes a Landsknecht guard sleeping on duty, a harold with important news, a smith with the newest armour he has done and a woman with a broom, sweeping away the dust in the yard.



LC 04 - Citylife II: This set includes one woman with a pot in her hand, a young girl with a newborn, a shoetrader with his stuff on a stick and an unarmoured Landsknecht thinking about if he should spend his money on new shoes.

Sweet!

I love Mr Hicks' work (impatiently waiting for him to return from holiday so I can get my mits on his latest batch of VBCW figures). I really like his odd droopy mouths his figs always have.

I wonder how these will stack up next to the Brugelburg range from LAF. If they match the previous Pro-Gloria figs they will be a tad smaller, but still going to have to order the citylife packs.

Now when can we order WK's dwarves....

PS regarding the Brugelburg figures linked by Shadowlord (page 21). Ordered them and they are excellent, (but warning: I wouldn't bother ordering the sign post pack, its a bit of a waste of money).
Cheer up, could be worse.

The rest is scheduled to follow in the coming months.

Second.

And even more suitable for WHFB since the lack of puff'n'slash is irrelevant.

Well, true. What I meant is that it doesn't matter for heavy cav since the current Empire knights don't have it, either.

I want the knights for my Hungarian Black Army. Though I already have fifteen Voland's Venetors which are exactly right anyway.

I still need to buy some of the pike/handgun/crossbow ones too!



Also, I like those civilian models from just up the thread. Especially the guy with the dog.

Out of interest, what's a Hungarian Black Army?

I assume it has nothing to do with chili...

Chaps, I require aid!

Does anyone know of any figures for the following:

  • A giant sized Knight in full plate armour (preferably spikyish) with a massive shield and spear.
  • A giant sized Knight in full plate armour (preferably spikyish) with a big twohanded sword.
  • Normal sized knights in full plate, with no faces showing. Weapons would be two handed swords, sword and shield (plastic preferable, but I understand not likely)

I'm really awful at finding miniatures.  :-(

Now those are some sweet looking minis! If you did not have enough slash an puff before, you will get it now! And the fellow with the hammer would be such an awesome captain with great weapon or halberd.
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!
