Have a look at this guy's right leg .................... I wonder if this is where the idea of bolts come from.

So you like them?  You can't beat the price, and I almost ordered some greatswords from them, but the pictures are awful.  I just couldn't bring myself to order them without knowing exactly what they looked like.

My sentiments, exactly.  I started during 6th, so all my state troopers look like that.  Now, I want to expand, which rules out the current GW state troops.  I was pondering converting my old spearmen to halberds, but I think I'll leave them intact and go for some Old Glory ones at some point.  Thanks!

Are those resin or plastic? They look like plastic. There are parts. How much are they?

Resin plastic, they call it warcast, and will be more expensive than their plastic range, but cheaper than finecast and will be direct order only.

They look nice and if they are in the price range of the Dwarf slayers they made I think they will be fantastic...they should make Empire now.

The company's name is AVATARS OF WAR. It's Spanish  - so you were half close. :icon_mrgreen:

Actually Rackham line is being re-released by Cmon- in resin and with 100% price hike.

Got this email about upcoming releases from foundry. 
link

Look at these 'upcoming' Elizabethans:



I really hope they don't discontinue the old range, as its probably one of their nicest.  Like, look at their current ones:

some nice spanish:
http://wargamesfoundry.com/historical_ranges/single_packs/elizabethan/spanish/brutal_sword_and_buckler_men_sb016/?sector_id=12

some nice british:
http://wargamesfoundry.com/historical_ranges/single_packs/elizabethan/british/elizabethan_pikemen_liz004/?sector_id=12

Man, those new elizabethans look like garbage compared to the current models!

I think you missed the sarcasm.
I've been aware of Mr Felix Paniagua for 9? years.
His Dragonrune orcs are legendary.
Shame about his AoW goblin range which is very average.

Rackham coming back? Good old Chinese eh?

Timbor, they look quite nice, very static but still nice.

Bohemian Troops released some Thirty Years War cavalry (~ three musketeers era), including some heavy cavalry that might work well as alternative pistoliers (you could probably supplement them with more variants from ECW ranges from Perry Miniatures or Warlord Games)

I like the pistoliers. Do they have other (less static) horse options?

The Foundry figures are awful, and just another in a growing line of them replacing beautiful old sculpts with newer ones that look horrible. Ok, some are mediocre (at best) but certainly not worth the "premium" Foundry price.

So, those Foundry releases...what exactly is going on with the left arms on the two in the bottom right? :icon_confused:  Much prefer the older sculpts.
