Figure Lines For Historical Games, and as Fantasy ...

Figures for Historical or Fantasy games ...

- - -

Here's a newly released line of figures for Spanish pike and shot during 30 Years War era ...

https://www.1898miniaturas.com/shop/en/48-spanish-tercios-28mm-miniatures

Their "premium collection" offer provides 56 figures for 99 euros/109 dollars, which is under $2 per figure.

They look nicely sculpted with relaxed poses.  Could be used for Estalians with Warhammer, and obviously used as Spanish or other Holy Roman Empire armies as well.  Very tempting to pick up some of these, and hopefully soon.

So I purchased 1898 Minitatures' "premium collection" of Spanish pike and shot.  It has 56 figures, their full selection, and they throw in a free commander figure on top of the 56 in the package.

However, they also now have Tercio 1 and Tercio 2, each having only 28 figures ... 6 muskeeteers, 6 arquebusiers, 12 pikemen, and 4 command.

The shot are half loading and half firing.  The Pikes are half with armor and half without.  Pikes and flag provided.
