Wow! Those are really nice navy figures -- I like them a lot.

Is that a new company? I never heard of them before. If new, that is a very auspicious beginning.
| The Editor ||05 Jan 2013 9:06 p.m. PST|
Old company, also known as Fantassin, somehow now merged with Capitan Miniatures and/or Capitan Games.

More great work from Mr Broadbent.
Must get some for SHARP PRACTICE
|iceaxe||06 Jan 2013 12:29 a.m. PST|
Great figures. In the way that they're posed & presented, I'd swear they're a 19C version of the Village People.
|Redcurrant||06 Jan 2013 3:25 a.m. PST|
You can almost hear 'in the Navy' as the background music when you look at the dancing matelots.
| Fonzie ||06 Jan 2013 4:51 a.m. PST|
Serious, great figures, well done !
|The Gray Ghost ||06 Jan 2013 5:55 a.m. PST|
I need all those Lieutenants and the Spanish are very tempting

"Fantastic figures", "auspicious beginning", "great work", "Great figures"
You're all being ironic, yes?
|Skeptic||06 Jan 2013 6:35 a.m. PST|
Unfortunately, some of their informational pages are password-protected!
|Suetonius Paullinus||06 Jan 2013 6:50 a.m. PST|
They seem a bit small in the chest though.
And obviously one would need a ship for all them climbing/ working sailors. Hmm, how to explain this to the Missus now???
| Condotta ||06 Jan 2013 6:56 a.m. PST|
I like these and will buy them. The painting is excellent and the concept well-done. Since these will be used in small skirmish actions, more variety in the poses from the waist down will be welcome and I look forward to more releases. Great work!

How do these figures match up with Victrix? Now that I have one of Laser Dream Works fantastic 28mm ships, I need good crew.
|ottenfeld||06 Jan 2013 7:33 a.m. PST|
This is good stuff. Finally some 28 MM Spanish sailors. Next is hopefully some marine infantry in 'on board' dress. Also, rowers and climbing sailors are not easy to find. I was just looking at those tasty ships made Laser Dream Works – I detect an evil plot here.
| Der Alte Fritz ||06 Jan 2013 7:54 a.m. PST|
I detect a few "The Gun" scenarios in the future.

If you have seen TMP some weeks ago we have announced that Capitan Miniatures & Warmodelling has merged in WARMODELLING MINIATURES.

About the web of Capitan Games is now the department of rule desing and gamed developement of WARMODELLING MINIATURES and in short time we will publish our games.

They look great. Excellent job.
|daghan||06 Jan 2013 12:20 p.m. PST|
They seem to suffer from the Kaiser's withered left arm syndrome?
| Extra Crispy ||06 Jan 2013 12:23 p.m. PST|
I think it's the angle in the photo. The hand rests on the sword hilt so the arm extends back behind the figure.
|IronDuke596 ||06 Jan 2013 12:26 p.m. PST|
I have been waiting for the 28mm version of these are excellent figures. I will order soon. Hopefully, 28mm gunboats etc. will follow.
| John the OFM ||06 Jan 2013 4:49 p.m. PST|
I see that all the captains have made post.
Any with just one epaulette?
You're all being ironic, yes?
Nope, I like them.
|Wulfgar||06 Jan 2013 8:00 p.m. PST|
Gorgeous figures. I am unaware of anything else that is equal to them in the quality of the sculpts or in the variety being offered or planned. Thank you!
|Skeptic||06 Jan 2013 9:04 p.m. PST|
That was the "Capitan Games" pages, by the way.
|Valator||06 Jan 2013 10:53 p.m. PST|
They look great, but they also seem to be doing the Gagnam Style dance, which is a bit disturbing.
| Angel Barracks ||07 Jan 2013 2:28 a.m. PST|
Oppa WARMODELLING MINIATURES.
| legatushedlius ||07 Jan 2013 3:00 a.m. PST|
Some of these are quite nice but some are very odd. In particular the Spanish officers, if you removed their enormous collars would have necks like giraffes. Nicely painted though.
|Liberators ||07 Jan 2013 9:24 a.m. PST|
Great job in continuing, expanding and filling the Napoleonic naval niche. Just as exciting is Capitan's promise of full rules and game system development.
|Flat Beer and Cold Pizza ||07 Jan 2013 4:46 p.m. PST|
These are great. Gets me hankering for a few games of "Privateers and Gentlemen."
|AuvergneWargamer||08 Jan 2013 8:26 a.m. PST|
I've painted some Capitan miniatures Brunswick Owls and am happy with them despite some long necks there too!
But seamen need ships and mention has been made of "Laser Dream Works" vessels.
These look tempting but does anyone know of a review or a step-by-step guide to making them and rigging them etc?
Also, does anyone have an idea of how they comapre with Britannia's frigates?
Very grateful for replies.
Just noticed an excellent review of one of the Laser Dream vessels on TMP at:
