Hello everyone ,

Please except Old Glory, who are making 25mm miniatures to represent the fighters of Vlad Ţepeş's army?

I would also need impaled figurines …

Thank you.

Men, women, children, I assume?

hi EEE ya Supporting Member of TMP15 Dec 2021 10:23 a.m. PST

Good idea ! But I do not understand that this does not exist in the trade?

And except Old Glory, please who are making 25mm miniatures to represent the fighters of Vlad Ţepeş's army?

Lance and Laser has impaled skeletons, as well as some various bone piles.

Lost Kingdom sells the 3d printing files of impaled prisoners.

The old WAB supplement Vlad the Impaler showed a terrain item made of plastic skeletons impaled on stakes (cocktail sticks?).

I presume that the plastic skeletons were from GW, though since then I think a couple of other companies have started producing plastic skeletons – Mantic and Atlantic Wargames come immediately to my mind.

Impaled figures from Etsy – 3D printed in plastic or resin. Not sure about the living!

The figures in the WAB Vlad reference were customized from plastics and metal from multiple manufacturers.

Thanks everyone,

The idea of Shotgun Willie was valid but it's better to find directly impaled figurines!

Impaled skeletons wouldn't have the same visual effect, so that's not possible.

Lost Kingdom would be best, but I need to know their size and the pals would have to be removed and replaced with something more historic.

Moreover I do not know in what outfits were the tortured when they were impaled and if they were tied or not.

Is the old WAB supplement Vlad the Impaler still in the market?

What is GW?

GW = Games Workshop

It has been out of production for quite a while (probably close to a decade?), but you can probably pick one on the second hand market with a bit of effort.

"Moreover I do not know in what outfits were the tortured when they were impaled and if they were tied or not."

(According to something I read) most likely naked, and tied up so they would struggle less when being placed on the pole. If the foe was charitable, they'd grease the end of the pole first…
For figures, I'd suggest paper flats (you could make and print those yourself.)

Ok thanks everyone, I'm still looking.

Eureka do an impaled naked figure link
Armorcast Lance & Laser do some impaled skeletons

@Huscarle,

The Assyrians had a strange way of impaling, in case of purchase, they would have to be re-impaled.

I keep looking !

TAG were going to do a range of 15thC Turks and Transylvanians for the bloody wars of Ottoman expansion, but they only did a command pack link

North Star do a Vlad figure link

Reconquista's blog has some pictures of some Hinchcliffe models link

Perhaps you can do a kitbash with the various 15thC plastics boxes?

hi EEE ya Supporting Member of TMP19 Dec 2021 3:35 a.m. PST

Hinchlife only offers the reference HIN / RE67 Wallachian Voynik Aux.Halberdier 15th C, but this reference is more valid for Turkish people, right?

Thank you.
