I really want that.

I nearly wrote 'really, really' but that would annoy me. And why annoy oneself? I ask you. That's something I really, really hate. Darn it!

I like that the wagon comes stocked with "stuff." I've got some other wagons -- GW and Front Rank, I think -- but they're all empty. I keep planning on modeling some simple cargo, but once I finished painting them, I think my brain just moved them over to the "done" column. So now, when I use them I think, "man, I really need to get those wagons filled" but then forget about them again til the next time.

I think these are fairly new - just seen them promoted by Warlord Games newsletter, though they say they are not selling them  :icon_question:  well yet as I assume they are a US company and I don't know if they have any UK or European resellers.


Oriental ?


Roman


Mayans




Polynesian



There are a few others ...........

They definitely do.  They're my go-to company for character models.  Great models, and much cheaper than GW's.  The search feature on their site is awesome (and necessary, their range is huge!).

Yes, I think their search function/database is excellent. The local store has a huge wall of Reaper figures. But there's no real order to them, so any time I want to look for a figure, I have to spend an hour searching. In the case of my trip there this week, they didn't have either of the figures I was looking for.

Two of those 4 swordsmen's shield's aren't round.

(GP ... aren't you the observant one today.)

Yep, but even my conscience doesn't know why the other two shields are as they're shown.

Many historical bucklers have quite funky shapes, you can see very similar bucklers in Achille Marozzo's Opera Nova, for instance:

http://wiktenauer.com/wiki/Opera_Nova_(Achille_Marozzo)

(Images 15, 16, 19, 20, 22).

I think Paulus Kal takes the cake for odd bucklers, though:

Ha! I was going to send you a link to the Copplestone Louis XIV range since you liked those ones. It seems it's the same range, Northstar bought them.  :laugh:

I'm just gonna say "They're metal go away Fandir" and leave it at that. I may be right or wrong, but still, go away Fandir!
