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

Actually, I've had a look on their site and apparently the horse is just for show. They are selling the riders by themselves, so you can put them on whatever horse you want.

I really like the style of those gunmen. They are realistic but fluffy in the same time. And not too expensive. The horses - not a problem, since GW sell them separately and to be honest here - GW makes the best looking horses on the market, in all editions. I love them all.

I see the fact they are selling just the riders as an opportunity too as it allows to put all your figures from different manufacturers on the same horse brand to blend them in.

Better stock up on those plastic GW horses before they discontinue them though.

I just stick my riders to the horses with poster sticky tack, so I never have to buy new horses.

Unless you want Empire-looking knights rather than Bretonnian-looking knights.

Those crusader knights are nice if you are looking for knights from around the Araby crusades time (1400s).

Those look great. Very animated.

But yeah, not really my cup o' Empire tea. Look more like retro-Bretonnians.

Ditto, they look nice but they look Bretonnian or Crusade period.

It will depend on how they compare to our normal troops. They might be very tinny...

I do like the sculpting though, very nice figures.

Teutonic Knights = Middenland knights during the three emperors period.

I think the horses are the pick of the bunch, they are full of movement, rearing to go... really nice mount sculpts.

Foundry have released some more of their not so well sculpted mercenaries.



I may be tempted by the pistoliers because they look like they might go with the old metal ones (though the poses are awkward compared to those classics) and they don't have any of the very crude puff and slash that's sculpted on the others.

Those Teutonic Knights look great, they really emphasize the might of a cavalry charge.

The Foundry figures are pretty poor, especially when viewed close up.
Cheer up, could be worse.

Foundry has released their amazon collection, and it seems in the excitement of it all, many amazons have released their boobs  :blush:

The sculpts look better done than their new condottiere units, but there are an awful lot more breasts flopping around than I would expect of a tribe of ferocious warrior women...

Kinda spendy for what they are. Wargames Factory Amazons are nicer models, about 1/4 of the price with more options (if you discount the lack of skirts).

Disappointed with the Foundry Italian Wars and their Elizabethans.

However the book 'Condottiere' has impressed me more - the rules are interesting with all units having fixed sizes Infantry 16 and Cavalry 10 and rather than roll dice for 'wounds' you use playing cards.

A bit like SAGA each type of unit is worth a number of points and you build an army to 30 points - your country of origin determines which units you have access to.


Personally I think the TAG Italians minis look much better ............. and I do like those Teutonic Knights - I am sure you could use less ornate heads/helmets - in fact I thought the sprue had choices.

That book was partially ruined for me by those same crappy figures being plastered over nearly every page of it, making me cringe whenever they catch my eye.
