http://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Buckenham-Historical-Wargamers/302874659765417 i am painting Germans in the service of France.
I used http://www.leagueofaugsburg.com/shop/products-cat-16.html figures,very nicely sculpted with good animation and if you are into this period i recommend them highly. A these few issues i did have with the figures to keep in mind.
When buying a battalion pack make sure you check them as the mix of musketeer/pike/command and grenadiers seem to be random, Random to the point of wondering if their packing dept is a monkey in boxing gloves! which as we at the club are using warfare miniatures Beneath the Lilly Banner rule set,you would think that they would know what figures you needed to make up a battalion?
Pikemen,some of these posed with only a single cupped hand to balance the long pike on isn't good enough to stand up to wargaming,even in the gentlest hands.
Cavalry, the troopers need to be drilled and pinned or araldited as the underside of the troopers is a "V" shape and the saddle the sit on is rounded.
All this said they are really good figures which i have enjoyed painting.
