Nice to see a painted example of that one!  I think it has been around for a little while though, I remember seeing it on maelstrom's website for a few months.

I've added a showcase in 8 parts to my blog, forming an illustrated guide to manufacturers of Empire/landsknecht style figures.

Before anyone points it out, no I didn't forget Perry Miniatures, they're  just a different historical period and I wanted to stick to the more or less pure strain of puffy sleeved goodness.

Just noticed the post with the Spanish/Elisabethan (=Estalian) figures wasn't showing up on the first page.

Fixed.  :-)

I thought Gamezone was a spanish (or at least european) company... how exactly does the FBI get involved here??

Maybe it's one of those fake sites, disguised to cover some illegal intentions, like stealing credit card numbers. I'm sure Gamezone has nothing to do with this.

Actually I remember that few days ago there kept popping up the registration window, asking to login. But now this is gone. this is weird, I'm getting worried.

An interesting way to go, who would have thought that a site from a miniature game company could get closed by the FBI. Server crash, hacking, ... we all have seen that, but this?

It looks like it's for a breach of gambling laws and there is an interesting legal tussle going on at the moment with online gambling sites in the US and methods of money laundering, maybe this is part of that. Pure speculation on my part.

Not sure if we have seen these before.

There have been postings of other stuff from them before - flags and a long rifle.
