Sorry I've been somewhat dilatory with the posts of late. Here's a smallish set of latter 16th Century arquebusiers I bought on eBay. Ten gunners come in the three poses shown plus the group contained one NCO figure. I'm not certain, but I think they belong to to Keiler's Bruno Hinsch: Serie 29 - Religionskriege. Flats experts, please advise if I've got that wrong.
I stripped the factory paint to see what the castings looked like underneath. Not bad at all really, rather small for 30mm and very thin castings, bordering on toylike in style but appealing in their own way. Repainted with acrylics.
They are certainly appealing after painting!ReplyDelete
Steve, there is a wave of sharing favorite blogs going around under the guise of Liebster Blog nominations and I have nominated you. Please see my post for more.
Thanks, Ross. On both counts. Liebster is a new one on me, I'll check your blog post.ReplyDelete
Steve, and I've Liebstered you as well! Your flats are simply amazing - quite astounding. I can never decide whether they make me want to burn my brushes or dedicate my whole life to trying to do half as well! Top banana!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the very kind comments, AlFront.ReplyDelete
Fellow bloggers, forgive me if I don't participate in the Liebstering, it's all I can do to keep up with the reciprocal endorsing on LinkedIn these days.
Very nice poses, will they fit in with your Spanish Tercio, size wise I mean?ReplyDelete
Best wishes, Brian
Hi, Brian. Yes, they'll fit for size. A bit smaller than the Wilken figures but in general the Germans have done a better job of keeping the scale uniform @ 30mm as compared to wargames figures or as you know, with 54mm for that matter.ReplyDelete
The fit is more a matter of fashion, the differences between early and latter 16th Century. I'll eventually need to find the pikes and command which go along with these.
