We are happy to announce our first own range of 28mm miniatures - which specialise in the 16th century. On the whole we will do such called „Landsknechte“ (the English prefer the word „Landsknechts“, which is German and means “the men of plains”, as these were the counterpart to their Swiss opponents, which were “the men of the mountains”.), who lived in the 16th century and started the fall of chivalry and then grounded the beginning of the infantry. We want to fill gaps in the market, and bring out some specials and non-produced individual items.
For this, we sorted out a nice name, and we dubbed our company ‘Pro Gloria Miniatures’, which is latin and means ‘For Glory miniatures’.
The miniatures are sculpted by the talented Paul Hicks and some are done (like the horses) by eBob. Terrain and bits are made by Paul Cook.
As our company is still in its infancy, we kindly ask for your patience, so that we can wait on the sculpted miniatures and also the casted ones.
We have the first packs on the stocks , and they will be the following:
- Handgunners - Kneeling
- Handgunners - Advancing
- Handgunners - Characters
- Light cavalry - Charging
- Light cavalry - Advancing
- Light cavalry –Characters
- Light cavalry – Mounted Handgunners
- Handbüchse (the German word for "hand rifle")
To increase our range as fast as possible, we are also asking for donations. For more informations on donations, please take a look above to the ‚Donate-Button’.
As a little foretase, we have something for you so you can see our high-quality products. This miniature was made for the Steve Dean Forum, and to get funds for the forum owner Steve Dean himself.
The miniature shows a looting Landsknecht with a little pig under his arm. You can still purchase this miniature Here: Link
That’s all fort he first impression, we’ll upload a full list of the upcoming range later that week or at the beginning of the new one. We raise the glasses for a lot of readers, customers and a lot of comments.
Let’s finish the post with the famous words: Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori.
