9 euro for nine 12mm figures?

I'll pass.

Its actually 30 infantry per pack.

Beautiful figures, I especially like the slight variation in each of the nine figures pictured.

Very well done sculpting

IMHO, they are more proportional and detailled than most 28's out there! I have a lot of their WWI Germans and a few packs of Ancient Romans that I base my comment on. Oh and there are 30 figures in a pack of these. 7 poses times 4 each (=28) plus one each of two NCO's (= 30) plus bases. (Says so in the description on the site after clicking on the picture.)

VERY clean castings!

My order has been sent in. I have been looking forward to these miniatures for awhile. Amazing detail.

They remind me very much of the long OoP 20mm figures by Les Higgins from his WSS range (which actually is in production again through John Cunningham).

Or the illustrations in the old "Compleat Brigadier" H&M rules

Assuming that they complete the range with Cav and Art, this could be a neat way to build a couple of travel armies with an Old School look to them.

Bill – this is the problem with the ranges he produces. Models are superb, reasonably priced (for what you get) but there are bits of ranges that don't allow a whole army to be fielded that is of consistent style or quality.

If he ever completes his Belgian WW1 range I'll happily replace my current stuff (even though they would look out of place with my Pendraken Brits, Germans & French) but with no cavalry or artillery that won't happen.

I can understand why a one-man operation can't do that quickly but it doesn't make it viable for me until he does.

Looking forward to receiving my first four packs next week; the Sunking is recruiting again.

It's a pitty that he started it in 12, not 10 mmm
BTW did anybody compare theese figures with Pandraken's LoA line ?

dbf167607 May 2018 12:30 p.m. PST

My understanding from the Pendraken site is that their figures are actually 11mm. I have many of their League of Augsburg range. Their cavalry seem to be slightly larger than the infantry.

Van Dyck are actually 1:144 scale, which falls within the 10-12mm range. I plan on getting some when they produce officers. I imagine that they will go just fine with Pendraken's LOA figures.

There is a photo comparison on the Wargaming the War of Spanish Succession Facebook page, showing Pendraken, Van Dyck and Old Glory.
