Indeed it was very common for people to have battle armour and ceremonial armour.

I am the same with my socks.

Woah, Padre and Gankom don't have battle armor nor ceremonial armor?  I'm shocked! :icon_eek:

I have a gorget, just a 'token' piece of armour from when it was no longer useful but was still fashionable for officers who wanted a soldierly look. My buff leather coat, however, is rubbish. I would love a properly thick one but they cost hundreds and hundreds of pounds!

They've released some new pictures showing the peasant rabble. Confirming that they can be built like rioters, militia or normal looking. Looks pretty good!

Looks ok.  Perhaps I'll get a box at some point.

Yeah but how can we trust anything you say Zak when you're a suspected scammer...

This is the kit to make everything right Zak. All the men get brooms and baskets, and the women get torches. Just like my usual family gatherings.

I'd hope the final version of these peasants would come with less cartoony faces. Or less angry/determined. They should be relaxed, happy, plain, or anxious.

The woman arms could carry laundry, kettles and kids too.  :wink:

Well, it's enough of a feat that it's (apparently) possible to build them as either an angry rioting mob, a militia that means business, or just peasants going about their usual business, by using the same bitz in different ways. Though, I suppose it should be possible to have a wider variety of faces for all purposes. Many plastic kits come with way more heads than faces. It'd be enough, I suppose, if there were three kinds of faces (angry, serious, chill) and any two of those combined would be enough for all the bodies.
The only good thing about 7th ed heads is that they look particularly inbred and superstitious which is perfect for Stirlanders

I will be picking these peasants for sure at some point. I think these would make grat flagellants with some conversion work. I never liked the plastic flagellant models, with their ripped chests and bulging muscles. Weren't these guys supposed to be starved loonies?

Talking of Flagellants, I would still go after the 6th ed metal ones, with a ragtag collection of armour over and under their well worn robes, unkempt and barefoot. Just the right mix of madness, monkishness and mercenary.

With six different sculpts they even have decent variety. A couple of the sculpts are very easy to convert, and the 6th ed Warrior Priests also fit the unit very well.

At one point they sold cheaply in eBay. Possibly more sought after today, or simply rarer because of time passing.

Yeah, I don't think flagellants should just look like an angry mob in a temporarily agitated state. They're more than that. Flagellantism is an ideology, a lifestyle, and the 6th edition and newer models convey that well.

Warrior priests and these flaggellants were what sold me on Warhammer. I totally agree with konrads assessment that itís an ideology.

I received an email a bit back regarding going to the Fire Forge site for their kickstarter to pick products for my pledge.  I also discovered that postage hadn't been paid yet.  I also tacked on one of the folk rabble boxes to my order, and then paid the bill.

Looking forward to the order being received. :icon_cool:

I did all my postage and picking last week as well! Really looking forward to this one. I like the sculpts and LOVE the peasants (Both alive and dead).

I decided to wait for the Peasants box to be released.
You can pick up Fireforge boxes with 20% off in the UK quite easily, and the KS add-on option is no cheaper and there's postage. It will come later than the normal KS bits anyway.

So apparently there has been some sort of issue over not enough having been charged for shipping.

In being given the opportunity to pay the extra shipping cost, mine was only 2 extra euros, there was also opportunity to amend one's order.  I got rid of the folk rabble, and bought more shields.  This included one set of each of those with the fantasy heraldry, and for historical purposes I also picked up a set of the Floentine pavises and the standard pavises too.  By ditching the folk rabble, only had to pay a total of 9 extra euros. :icon_cool:

I wanted to buy more of the fantasy figures, yet resisted.
