New Releases and Good news!

Hello all together,

time to bring back some life in this blog. First of, I received a lot of new flags today from our painter Pete. The new releases includes no more than 17 new Swiss flags! Soon you will find these in our catalogue.

Now to the good news: Paul (our sculptor) told me that he will finish our new 6 (!) blisters in November so I will have them all ready for Christmas. No civilians this times but the rank & file troops you will need to create big pike blocks.

Also, our website is almost finished and will go online with our rank & file release.

At the moment, another sculptor is doing a lot of horses ... As well as some dollies for the riders! Won't take long to show you some pre-views for some excellent knights.

We will also stock a whole range of Polish Napoleonics in 28mm, sculpted by Paul Hicks. Will have them for sale in late November/early December.

All in all, this sounds like some good news to me!

All the best,

2nd Wave Finally Released!

Hello all together,

for all of you you have pre-ordered these sets - you should have received them in the last two weeks. But now they are officially released and even in colour! All blisters are priced 8€ an can be found in our catalogue: Link!

The first of our new set is a character set including no one else then Götz von Berlichingen, Kaiser Maximilian I and Frundsberg.

Götz von Berlichingen became famous in the Swabian-Pesant-War (1525) where he led the peasants to (not so) glourious deeds and became a prisoner after the war was fought. His judgment became his doom and he had to stay at his castle in southern Germany.

Kaiser Maximilian I, emperor of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation described his self as the supporter of the Landsknechts. Actually, I doubt that he fought within the pike-blocks but I can really imagining a Kaiser in his best armour watching his soldiers fighting. This miniature represents the emperor in his mid-years - more variations will follow.

Georg von Frundsberg is the most famous maneuverer and a knight of the early 16th century. He became popular in the Italian wars especially in the battle of Pavia (1525). He got the nickname of "father of Landsknechts" by his soldiers and historicans.

The second blister is a hunting party. Hunting was practiced by noblemen or knights in their sparetime. Mostly arranged in big groups with many dogs, the nobles walked out and had their fun on their own ways.

One of the minaiture is loading his crossbow, while one nobleman tries to keep his dog on a leash. The last hunter has a falcon on his hand and a hunting-boar-spear in his right.

There are two new peasant packs. The first one represents a young farmer family. 

The dad walks out to the fields and harvest home. He is dressed in a typical peasant-dress which was normally tinted with earthy-pastel colours. His wife carries a heavy yoke, on its ends probably water buckets. The other rigorous old lady is probably his mother which will help where ever she can. Work like keeping the herd together or flailing was commonly done by elder or children. 
And while we are talking about children, the blister also includes a small and young girl who preffered to collect the flowers in her apron instead of the mushrooms. 

The second peasant pack could also be used in a city or in a castle. It represents a dancing party of musician with bagpipes and a woman with a dapper plus a useful dancing-bear (which seems rather bigger than it is in real size...).

The last pack (and a real Landsknecht release) represents three soldiers, gambling away their pay. Scenes like this are often illustrated in old books or on pictures and where part of the daily Landskencht life. 

All the best,
