Perhaps it would have made more sense to put the design and production time, money, and energy into something that isn't already available in plastic.

No idea which set you mean…
Conquest Games "Normans" work for the 11th and at best early 12th century, while Fireforge starts in the latter 13th. There is no set that covers knights of the 12th and 13th century, read 3rd or 4th crusade and the multitude of European warfare around 1150-1250.

I was disappointed with their archer set (more for pose quality then depiction), but this box looks really good to me.

Thanks to the variety of helmet types supplied in its knight sets the Fireforge figures could serve for any part of the late 12th/13th century. Most of the Conquest figures pictured above are equipped in exactly the same way, including mail mittens/gloves.

The point is that, although this set will undoubtedly allow for greater variety within wargame units, with the expense of producing plastic figure moulds I believe that it's an unnecessary duplication of what's already available.

Conquest have a forum board and there have been requests for them to progress their range to the 12th century, so in a way I assume this is a response to customer requests. They seem to have 16 figures, 4 more than the Fireforge box, so if the price is right, this might be a popular set.

Looks interesting. I'll be getting a box
