I recently received these new figures from Del Prado, through the Sierra Toy Soldier Company and I thought some might be interested.
www.sierratoysoldier.com

These are all approximately four inches high. They're taken directly from various Osprey books and come with a pamphlet that's a condensed version of that particular book.

William the Conqueror



12th century Siculo-Italian Norman knight



Alemmanic cavalryman, late 4th century

Hey Patrick!

I've seen these advertised in a magazine, Military Heritage I believe, and wondered about what they looked like up-close. Thanks for posting such nice photos of your new figurines. They look very well-done!

(Of course, you're always good at pointing out new things that I want to spend my non-existent money on, aren't you? Wink )

Stay safe!

I knew I forgot to mention something. Big Grin

BTW, the floor finish looks like it will work pretty well. I've got plenty left if you want to give it a try on your coif.

I ordered around half-a-dozen of these quite some time ago. Apparently Del Prado's had trouble with delivery and Sierra had to send many of them back due to damage from improper packaging. They're starting to trickle in now. The detail actually looks much better in person, as you aren't up close and personal with a magnifying glass, like it seems in the photos. At around $25.00 a piece they're a pretty good buy when compared with similar ones in the $70.00 range.

Nice toy soldiers by the way. Cool ( couldn't resist a little teasing, sorry. Big Grin )

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Hmmmmmm. I can see a bit of a resemblance now that you mention it. Eek!

As I told Greg just this afternoon, grown men who play with swords shouldn't be too quick to judge. Wink
