New: Landsknecht Pike, Command, Guard Duty and Hunting Party

Out today are the first of our new range of Landsknechts for the Italian Wars 1494-1559. Part of our acquisition of Pro Gloria Miniatures, these are just the start of a glorious-looking range – there’ll be lots more from this beautiful range over the coming weeks!

In addition we have two of the extremely characterful sets that make this range so much fun to collect and paint. Ideal for adding more atmosphere to your battlefield, there are plenty more like this on the way:

WGP-LS-28-Guard-Duty

‘Guard Duty’ depicts three soldiers gambling away their pay when they should, perhaps, be focusing more on their job as guards. Scenes like this are often illustrated in old books and where part of daily Landsknecht life.

WGP-LS-30-Hunting-Party

Hunting was a common pastime for rich nobles. One hunter is loading his crossbow, while a nobleman and a commoner each handle dogs. The last hunter has a falcon on his left hand and a boar-hunting spear in his right.
