Finished a few more figures. As indicated in the preceding post, these are antique designs, first issued by Ernst Heinrichsen in 1883. As usual, painted in acrylics.
One challenging aspect of designing/engraving flats is making the figure to appear completely convincing from both sides. Nice as these figures are, they missed the mark a bit with this pikeman, from the back side his smallish helmet riding high on his head like a steel derby. The pike is short as well but probably done to facilitate the casting process. I do like the classic "ready to receive cavalry" pose.
Lancers were on the way out by the early 17th Century but not just yet.
