Update -- got the High Command set in! They look great. There are three named generals who each have a subaltern with them, and another general who is by himself. Also got a photo of the dragoon set. Cool stuff, there are three shooting poses and two horse-holding poses -- a mounted and a dismounte...

Some nice Commanders would go down well! Just commissioned! Wallenstein, Tilly, Pappenheim, and a generic fourth general. Plus three hangers on -- two subalterns and for Pappenheim, a Kurassiere kettle drummer! Interestingly, portraits to the contrary, Wallenstein and Tilly are described by eyewitn...

These themes sound fine and I am interested in all of them. Prefer 25mm as there are hardly any 25mm comps left. Also I can only run an army from each theme in 25mm.

Can't help you with USA distributors but I can recommend getting figures from them direct from Italy. I live in Australia and was very happy when I received a large order in just over a week. Great figures too.

I have the old WRG book for that period and I seem to remember it mentioning that german handgunners especially were known for pavise use. I will double check and also bring the book over next thursday.

Surely you don't need to do any for Spartan shields......would have thought you still had a good collection from that game way back when you slaughtered my boys :)

I expected these figures to be superb and am not dissapointed. I was going to wait for the rest of the range to come out before ordering but have cracked and ordered infantry and cuirassiers.

Re: Small is Beautiful

I do think there should be a chance for the 650 point game to be given a run out at one of the larger UK FOG events. Dave The 25mm competition at Britcon uses 650 point armies on a 6x4 foot table. MUs are still 1-inch, so you don't close the range any quicker, but the table is only 30 base-widths w...

Re: Preview, Arkebusiers zu Pferd (large 15mm TYW)

Like the rest of the range so far, these look great. Do you think they will be available for order by say early November? I need 180 late Tercio foot, 24 Cuirrassiers and now 36 of these! Would like to bundle them all up for Xmas allowing plenty of time for postage. Any chance the artillery may be r...

This debate is very interesting. I am soon to start an early TYW German Catholic army ( as soon as Khurasan releases his figures :D ) and have been looking at the choice between early and late Tercio. Crunching the numbers I can see that the early Tercio does not have the concentration of fire to st...

This is excellent. I am planning to do a German Catholic TYW army around the middle of next year.
Now if there was a "Last Valley" command pack ( The Captain, Graf, Korski ) that would be perfect :)
