Hagen-Miniatures - new Ziegler figures coming

Posted by ImperialChief on 04 Sep 2017, 17:34

Hello at all,

Here some new figures for the swiss "Gewalthaufen" !
12 Arkebusiers


Here the text from Frank:

The Gewalthaufen gets its fire support with twelve arquebusiers. They are moving rather freely with their handguns, everyone is busy with loading and aiming.
There's no reglement with Handguns in this age, the 15th cent. We can assume that they were in combat like Tiailleurs or they fought from a stronghold position.
I sculpted their gear as a little bag and a gun powder vessel, hanging with straps over the shoulder.
Analogical to their comrades of the pikeblock I did the jacket over the armour. My suggestion is, that the jacket could be seen as a livreè jacket in an uniform pattern, like the unified standard with the logistics of the handguns, with consistent measurements, they must have had.

For their protection they wear sallets and warhats with breastplates and chainmails. At their side they have a long knife or a kind of swiss epee.

These troopers could be a company of a rather big german, swiss, or burgundian/flemish city state/polity, or the entourage of a big wealthy noble, which was able to provide not only badges, hooded collars, caps, or the colour for helmets, but stylish jackets.

i think next week they will be available in our shop.
I hope you like them !

Thanks for posting Andy :yeah: I have no free photo hosting service yet, since Photobucket .... :(
Oh yes and it was time to do something new. The last weeks, since Kulmbach I did my „heure verte“ with my green putty regulary and I think I will continue my work, with the other sculpts which I had began some time ago. My fingers found back their fitness for sculting - I am back again.
And well there is enough to sculp for the Burgundian Wars topic and so I will continue my ancient project contemporaneously.

Not my period at all but I really like how they look. Well done to the sculptor! I am sure those interested in the period will really enjoy these figs!
