Khurasan re-releases first codes of Testudo 15mm ECW/TYW ran

Post by khurasan_miniatures » Wed Oct 08, 2014 6:25 pm

After a long and arduous march, the Testudo ECW/TYW range is available again. Well, the first part of it is. We are getting the models re-released in stages, and the first stage is now available for sale.

This is made up of four codes:

ECW/TYW heavy Horse:

ECW/TYW (mostly) medium Horse:
Image

ECW musketeers in caps (which are especially suitable for English):
Image

and ECW pikemen in English morion:
Image

These have all been remoulded and samples painted for display, as seen above. The horses are from our Imperialist TYW range, as the horse masters from the range were, in our opinion, too thin to be viable for another press in the mouldmaking process.

You'll also note of the page there are three additional codes also available now -- armoured pikes (in cuirass), musketeers advancing (shouldered musket), and infantry command. These are ready to purchase but they have not yet been painted so the images are not on the site -- if you want them you'll need to purchase them sight unseen I'm afraid, at least for the next few weeks.

More moulds will be made soon, and we hope to have the entire range available again by early next year. As the line is mature and to some extent sold-through, the models have been very attractively priced -- and of course they are the same splendid sculpts by Guiseppe Rava that have long made the range famous. (The horses from the TYW range were sculpted by Mike Broadbent.) Painted by Artmaster Studios. Available now!

We've had these for sale for a while, but delay in paintup meant we were selling them "on faith." :) I'm sure buyers were pleased, but here are images of the paintups of the latest three codes.

Armoured pikemen in cuirass

Image
Advancing musketeers, musket shouldered

Image
Infantry command

We'll have more codes put back into production very soon, but like with the above three there may be a bit of a delay in getting them painted. Stay tuned.

And we've just remembered to put a button on our historical index page to get you to the former Testudo range! :oops: The direct link:

Update -- we have just added many new codes to the former Testudo English Civil War/Thirty Years War range in "15mm" (more like 18mm) -- pikemen in no armour, pikemen in breastplate and tassets, Croat light cavalry, and two codes without photos yet -- cuirassiers in 3/4 plate with pistols, and cuirassiers in 3/4 plate with lances. (We'll add photos of the cuirassiers asap.)
