I like 'em. They've got lots of personality. Crusty-like. If I was a witch, or a landlord with a bag of rent money, or a virgin, they'd scare me spitless. You say these are Perry ECW? I'm going to have to check that line out. I'm developing an interest in the 17th century…Virginia, Barbados, Cartagena…belike.

Thanks:)

The priest, agitator and dogs are Wrlord, the remaining musket and hand weapoins are perry ECW, skirmishing muskets and some unarmoured pikemen.

Great figs

Is Allmoge a Scandinavian word for thug? 'Cause if it is you got it right

Haha…thanks, indeed these allmoge was thugs during the Scanian war, at least the Swedes thought so as theu most often fought for the danish cause, at least in the beginning of the Scanian war.

Allmoge meanīs "All people" in Sweden…or at least the common people, ie. farmers, about 90% of the medieval/renicance population, not the Nobles, churchmen or craftsmen or traders living in towns and citys.

Nice bunch of minis. Looks like a perfectly wretched war.
