Title: Some new odds and ends!
Post by: Leon on 10 November 2018, 02:12:50 PM
While we're working on Kickstarter, not-Kickstarters, BKC-IV and more, we've still found a bit of time to tick off some of our Top 10 Requests!  This month we've had the designer working on a few revamps and requests so we'll have these moulded and ready to release soon.

First up we've got a couple of Marlburian revamps.  The current command, artillery crew and cuirassiers are older sculpts than the rest of the range so they've needed a bit of upgrading for a while now.  These new ones are much better sculpts and will match in with the other infantry/cavalry a lot better.

Next up we've got number 9 on the Top 10 requested items, with a new Vietnam radio op figure, along with a forward observer and medic to go with him!

And finally, number 5 on the Top 10 requested items is Pirates!  These are a bit of an experiment to see how much demand there is, as we know that a lot of people have asked about these over the years.  We've tried to do them so that they'll fit into any slave revolt / mutiny scenarios as well, to give them a bit of broader appeal.

We'll get these into some moulds and should have them ready for release in the New Year.

Pirates? Interesting. But, what's the one on the left holding in his right hand? And what's the one fourth from the left doing?

Cheers, M.

It'll be in the New Year I think, we've got the Indian Mutiny to get into moulds first so we'll squeeze these in before we hit the 1809 Naps moulding.

The left hand chap is the captain so that's his hat he's waving in the air.  The 4th chap is kneeling with his cutlass on the floor.

So when are you going to produce the naval gunners, truck guns, and a ship or two ?

Some nice things there, especially the pirates :)

No plans for ships, but we've got the naval guns in the SYW range already.  I'm wondering whether the SYW generic crewmen (trousers, shirt, no headgear) might be passable as a stand-in?

Post by: Westmarcher on 11 November 2018, 08:37:19 PM
Honest opinion - with waistcoats and gaiters? No. The ideal would be to have specifically attired seamen. Sorry.   :(

(but the guns and existing crews can still currently be employed as fortress artillery  :-bd  )

Post by: Ithoriel on 11 November 2018, 09:07:29 PM
I was thinking those guns but LOA24 and 25 for gunners.

But then I'm notoriously unfussed about the details of uniforms if everyone playing knows what's what.

Hello

How about the upcoming Scots gun crew as proxy pirates:-

Those are in production already so we can supply those if anyone needs any.

"I was thinking those guns but LOA24 and 25 for gunners."

The Golden Age of Piracy was said to be roughly 1650-1720, when you had Morgan, Kidd and Blackbeard.  LOA24 and 25, and possibly gun crews from the ECW range, will give you Government gunners for the earlier part of the period, and the new sculpts will fit the later years.

I will be ordering these! The medic will fit nicely with the WW1 stretcher. The two command figures are ideal for Bush wars!  :)

They were master moulded over the weekend so I'll be trying to fit them in towards the end of the month / early March.

Not sure at the moment, got a few things to catch up on and then we can get them into a mould.

Great idea with Malburians!

I would add to these:
- marching drummer
- marching officer
- properly marching standard bearer (like LoA - facing to the front, not side)
- 1-2 standing sergants with halbarde (animated poses - encouraging privates, dressing ranks, etc)
- 1-2 poses of marching sergants with halbarde (encouraging soldiers, etc)

And I will buy a lot of packs immediatelly !!!  ;)

As pirates have yet to go into production do you think you could make them have a standard base size and shape?  I have been spending a whole lot of time basing my guys.

Afraid not on the base sizings, they've already been sculpted and moulded so it would be a whole lot of time at this stage to try and file all of the bases to the same size/shape.

Standard bases proved unpopular in the request thread so no loss that the pirates are too far along.
