Medieval miniature goodies
I have finally decided to follow everyone else, lemming like, and purchase a box of perry plastics!
They have been around long enough, but I never was taken with them. Now I am the owner of one of their dismounted men at arms set. The shear volume of parts is amazing. I have no idea who or what to do with them yet, but I have already poached two useful helmeted heads for my 2nd Swiss pike bloc!
After purchasing 50+ perry figures for the 2nd Swiss pikebloc i had a lucky purchase, 28 foundry Swiss on ebay, most of them in the pose I wanted, . It was not my intention to have so many foundry Swiss but if you can grab em at the price I got these then I will use them, they are still beautiful figures and as the last group of Swiss I did showed, they more than stand up to the newer perry offerings, and add considerable variety.
I have also got my mitts on the new perry metal standard bearers, one of which is already earmarked to be standard bearer to Schwyz ! They are a wonderful new addition to the perry's metals.
As if all this was not enough I have ordered 70+ Mirliton and legio heroic 15mm Swiss and mounted men at arms. After years of wanting to, I have finally given in to my desire to try my hand at 15mm and I am looking forward to the challenge of creating a pikebloc in this scale.
More on the 28mm Swiss over the weekend.
