They are more warhammer-y than actual warhammer stuff.

Word Uryen! Word!  :icon_cool:

Like I said, I have one Bruegelburgh mini and it is so warhammery. I will certainly try to get more for my free company.

The russian Ratnik fellas really know how to do things well. And they have done well in taking inspiration from Pieter Bruegels eminent 16th century paintings. I really love their look in their Post-Apocalypse range of minis, that also seems partially inspired by Stalker... So good. I am thinking about getting some too as Imperial Guard, henchmen.

Just to conclude this, I have received my bats today, and they are nice sculpts.

The swarms in particular look like actual swarms rather than the emo version of whack-a-mole.

Thanks for the follow-up.  I'm considering getting some of them down the road, myself.

Second batch of excellent minis from my second most impressive - but they do not have a cool apokalypse game - mini manufacturer spotted in this thread.

Awesome stuff!  :eusa_clap:

There is a dire need for a cool Apokalypse game then, but then, is there not plenty of them around from different manufacturers... :unsure:

Been away for a while. Just spotted this over at TMP...

http://tigerminiatures.co.uk/page4.htm
or in the US...
http://recreationalconflict.lusagi.com/landsknechts.html

Some of the poses and proportion look a bit off, but I'd probably give them a chance for an "in the flesh" trial/review. (I thought the OG landsknechts looked a little rough at first, but they painted up nicely.) No idea how these scale up with any other manufacturers.



I am dying to get my hands on some of those Breugelburg figures.

Wargames Factory have the draft sprues up for their WSS Cavalry.





and the horsies ..............



Seems to be choices of heads and torsos ......
Some very 'Roundhead' looking helmets there.

What's WSS stand for?

Those sprues look pretty cool!

The War of Spanish Succession

Ah, thanks.  So a little away from my time period of interest, but they still look workable as some sort of light cav, maybe with some headswaps.

I'm wondering why they have empty sprue space on these.

Not sure these would really work for Renaissance era fantasy, but then again, it is fantasy.

Renaissance is dubious, but Fantasy - well ...........  :closed-eyes:

There are a few heads that could probably go to ECW or TYW - the torsos have a bit of militia set feel to them.


I also spotted the new 3D image of their prototype Samurai.

They're 360 degree revolving images.

Just saw this link at TMP. Someone is putting the Perry plastics to good use. Inspiring for Empire armies, in fact.
