Title: New Dacians and Sarmations!
Post by: Leon on 29 August 2018, 09:45:47 PM
We've had Techno quietly working on these figures over the summer, firstly as a replacement for our Dacian range and secondly as an expansion with some Sarmatians as well!  This lot won't be getting moulded in the near future but we're hoping to have them ready before the end of the year.

We've got a few odds and end for Phil to work through next, a lot of it helping to get the TB Line ranges up and running, but once that's done we'll be continuing with some Ancients revamps as we move on to the Greeks and Persians.

We'd like to thank mad lemmey for all of his help putting this range together!

What are you doing to me.  :o :o

First tanks.

Then FPW - which I can't even post about, before more new stuff appears right in front of me.

I have too many unpainted armies already.




I suppose another one won't hurt...

Can see these being very useful as fantasy figures too.

We're hoping so.  Lemmey is helping us work up a longer-term plan for our Ancients ranges, ticking off the remaining revamps to the Greeks, Persians and Indians, whilst fitting in some new additions along the way.

Great!

Maybe they will be ready by the time i finish my punic armies! That should give you guys enough time  ;D

As a matter of fact, i was torn between the Greeks , the punic wars and hastings, with the punic wars winning out in the end because of the newer range. Happy i waited to go with the Greeks!

I blloomin' love these. Well done Techno!

The dragon standards are suitably intimidating, but my favourite is the horse archer with the bow above his head - either in command or exultation.

Thanks once again, Chaps......

Though you can't tell it from the pics.....I did one of the archers as a female.....Inspired by one of the pics that Nobby e'maled me.

Cheers - Phil

Is it the horse archer on the extreme left? Is her name Mandy Corbyn?

Increases the female figure count in ancients too...

Post by: fsn on 30 August 2018, 09:27:35 PM
Just had another look. I am very, very impressed with those horse archers.


Stuff the lions and the MkIV, get me Featherstone's "Ancient Battle of Trimsos"!

Well....There's Kiera.....And didn't I do some females in the Mongol's range. (Or maybe they don't quite count as ancients. :-\)

Andy....Who is Mandy Corbyn ?......I'm afraid that one's gone right over my head. :-[

There's a Maiden Guard in AI8 Ancient Indian General and entourage (top left), so that's at least a doubling!

Maybe she’s related to Jeremy, what with her being on the extreme left of the light cavalry…  :-

I am surprised the ones Nobby sent you did not have exposed chests  - then thy would  have been easy to spot.


GGGRRRRR They are lovely , this makes me want to replace them all ..  I already have large Dacian army - but I might have to add a unit or two


Title: Re: New Dacians and Sarmations!

Told you it had gone right over my head.
When I Googled pictures of Mandy Corbyn....I saw a number of photo's of J Corbyn Esq and Peter Mandleson.....And still the penny didn't drop. (EXTREME left, Phil....read things properly !)

(Not as bad as a misread/mixed News headline I did a double take on, last night.)

Mark.....You know you want some more shinys, really ! ;)

Can you have unarmoured cataphracts ? Thats just light cavalry.   ;)


Title: Re: New Dacians and Sarmations!
Post by: Leman on 06 September 2018, 04:32:06 PM
I thought it was troops in cataphract armour on unarmoured horses. Surely heavy cavalry or medium at the very lightest. A bit like French ‘archers’ in the early C16th - gendarmes in all but barding.

I love the cavalry poses and am very appreciative of the thoughtful poses for the spearmen.

Nothing yet, too many jobs on the go at the moment.  BKC-IV and the Kickstarter are first priority, then the Not-Kickstarter, then either Indian Mutiny or Ancients.

They're scheduled in after the Indian Mutiny release, which I'm working on at the moment.  We're going to release the Dacians/Sarmatians/Greeks/Persians in one go I think, to maximise impact!  Techno should have the Persians all complete in the next month I think, he's just putting the finishing touches to them now.

Does the caption on one of those sculpts really say “Cataphracts, unarmoured”?  Isn’t that rather like saying “Clothed people, naked”?

Just got the chariot to complete, and then they can all go up to Pendraken Towers....I'd better remember to do a crib sheet, too.

Should have that finished in the next couple of days. (Fingers crossed)

Though, of course 'finishing it' means that I've got to check that it fits together properly.....That's when the bad language usually starts. X_X

I bought an album by them (tho' it was spelled correctly).

The LP (one of the first picture discs) was simply, frigging AWFUL.....(I as a sucker for adverts in Melody Maker, New Musical Express &  Sounds.....In those days.).....And I'd heard one track...Which wasn't THAT bad....On the radio.
