In a vain attempt to pique a little interest I though I'd preview some more of our forthcoming ECW/TYW range


Shown above are the new armoured pikemen at advance painted up as a TYW Imperialist unit. The detail on these new sculpts is the best we've done yet, making them an absolute joy to paint with a wonderful end result.


And here we've got the other half of the story with some musketeers in monmouth cap striding on to the field. You'll note that the command elements for pike and shot are different: the former get the company colours to look after, while the latter get the sergeants to supervise the complications of sundry firings.

There's a lot more to come from this range, so once again, keep your eyes open for updates as I'm about to put more masters and patterns through the moulding process.

I am hoping to have some of the new codes available at Salute, but no promises. What we will be doing there is selling off what remains of our current ECW stock, so if any of you are looking to complete existing armies there should be some bargains around. I will also have a lot of painted and based ECW figures for sale at the show Royalist and Parliamentary armies as featured in the Polemos ECW rules. They'll be on offer at a great price.

And with Salute hiding round the corner, waiting to leap out and mug you, can I please ask you to start getting your orders for collection at the show into us in good time? You can order and pay in advance using the website shopping cart. Alternatively get in touch with us by email or by phone 0114 2724491.

Beautiful, Peter, quite beautiful! Oh, and the figures aren't bad either!

Sweet. I may have to morph from pure ECW to TYW as well.

Oh, these are nice. I have a fair few of the old ones and these just blow them away.

They are, indeed,very tempting! Might make me dust off long neglected ideas for an ECW RISK campaign game… Or to use as more attractive troop counters with the 1644 campaign game…

Any idea how long before the complete range will be available?

I hope to get the lot done and dusted for the Joy of Six show in July.

Thanks very much, Peter!
Gives me time to complete my current project and something to look forward to enlivening the summer holiday.

Really nice. Are formed foot strips still four figures?

Baccus is at the top of my list of stands to visit at Salute. Looking forward to it!

Will someone please teach me how to paint them?

Hi CR,

If you go the Baccus website, and click on 'How to' in the menu at the top of the page, you will find Peter's very helpful step by step guide to painting 6mm figures.
