Good catch.

Not the cheapest Gensdarmes on the market – far from it – but worth the price for sculpting, research and casting quality. Just imho, of course. I am in again.

Yes, these seem top notch, and worth the price. Gorgeous!

I made a pledge. These are very nice. I have the gendarmes from the previous kickstarter. With all the different head and plume options you get, you can come up with a lot of unique combinations. I hope Oliver comes up with new mounted mercenary commanders and landsknecht characters as well.

I've had an interest in modelling the French army under the Valois for a while now. Would these be appropriate for some (Francis I preferably) period units, French or otherwise?

And any suggestions for uniform plates? The only source I currently have is the reprint of Marbot/Noirmont's LES UNIFORMES DE L'ARMEE FRANCAISE DE 1439 1815.

Take a look at TAGs line of the 1544 Valois (and Tudor) lines before you jump into scultping.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Plus I was talking about the minis in the above KS, not doing my own sculpting :)

Oh :-)

These would work fine for the richer Gensdarmes and characters, though in 1544 horse barding is already uncommon to atypical. I assume the gain in protection was no longer worth the cost and effort. Most of the armour is afaik based upon German and Italic examples, but as these were at the time the best artisans their armour would find its way to nobles all around Europe.
