I believe these have been posted before, but they've blown through a bunch of stretch goals (the kind they give away for FREE which is always good)!

The premise for these is neat: they are based on old woodcut artwork from artists like Holbein, Durer, and Breugel.

They are $500 USD away from the next goal which is to add Landsknecht style hats and armor to some of the units.

The proportions are quite nice too:

Check them out here on Kickstarter:

Oh, come ON now! Just where am I gonna come up with a pledge in 5 days? Thanks and no thanks, Dave! ;)

Now off to sell some plasma…they're that nice.

Good news – the alternate skeletons with armor and big hats were unlocked to give the skeletons even more of a Landsknecht look. Here's a WIP of the armored body:

Final hours with more freebies unlocked. Last one is the bishop:

Thomas really hit this 'un right out of the ballpark. These have an old world old school Valley of the Four Winds vibe with a dose of modern execution that elicits a degree of inspiration I for one haven't felt since I first set eyes on the old Minifigs VotFW skeletons when I was a teen in the 1970s who'd just discovered D&D and the whole world of FRPGs and tabletop gaming.

While creeping old age, work, and budgetary constraints have forced to move away from building armies to making the occasional warband, I will most definitely be looking to acquire a couple dozen of these excellent figures as soon as I can justify it for use with Bladestorm.

Just outstanding.
