Title: Early XVIIth century swashbucklers
Post by: M.P. on April 26, 2019, 11:24:08 PM
Hi,

this time I'd like to present you my current project in 1/72 scale - early XVIIth century swashbucklers. I plan to use them in playtesting my fantasy Prague campaign as well as in Frostgrave.

First my own sculpt based on previously sculpted dolly.

Some of my conversions of Mars miniatures (w.i.p.):

Thank you, I'm flattered :). The plastic that Mars is using is quite bendy but with a thin coat of elmer's glue as a primer will protect paint from chiping.

Another update

When you take a closer look in to de Gheyn's engravings depicting arquebusers you'll see alot of small details like passemanterie details on power flasks or a bag containing balls and holding the larger power flask or different methods of fastening stockings to pludernhose. While those details are really fun to spot, sculpting them is a rather tedius work.

I'm afraid there would be IP issues over casting converted figures and selling them. The IP rights in the original figures would belong to Mars, and the converted figures would rely on these original figures.

That’s understandable, but doesn’t lessen your effort in this wonderful work.
Title: Re: Early XVIIth century swashbucklers
Post by: Paul Richardson on July 07, 2019, 10:36:24 AM
I must say that this is completely different from my attempts to convert Airfix figures when I was a boy - putting the figures into boiling water, bending the limbs to the position I wanted and holding them in that position under a stream of cold water. These conversions are just marvellous.
Title: Re: Early XVIIth century swashbucklers
Post by: M.P. on July 08, 2019, 12:50:51 PM
DintheDin
Thank you :).

DivisMal
I'm flattered :),

Unfortunately I can't cast them because the IP-thing :(.

Paul Richardson
Thank you :).

The whole legal thing from what I know is more complicated - you can use other producers' mini parts in your sculpts as long as they do not constitute more than 30% of the surface of your miniature. But it's a controversial thing which I won't do.

I've converted those minis just for playtesting a supplement for my game (which might turn into its own thing). If there will be interest in it I may sculpt minis for it (using only wire dollies and putty).
Title: Re: Early XVIIth century swashbucklers
Post by: DintheDin on July 08, 2019, 05:09:36 PM
From what you have shown us, you really have the talent to make your owns sculpts, you prove that you have both the historical knowledge and the skill to produce convincing minis of this so interesting period!
I will continue to be following this thread with great interest! Cheers!

Thank you for your kind words :). I'm always trying to keep my sculpts/conversion as close to the source material as possible, so your words are a cery special compliment for me :).

Here's next batch of finished conversion.

@Metternich
Thank you  :), it takes a lot of time to find enough period iconography for certain groups to know how to sculpt accurately period dress (in case of central european Jews it took me like 3 years and yet still there are few things, which I know for certain), but the research is a part od the fun as much as scultping. Now I'm researching spanish and italian fashion from the first quarter of the XVIIth century.

@Cahrn
Thank you for your kind words :) , this is just first part of the project (fantasy part is the other one).

Working now on some Czech peasants - doing a project in 1/72 makes it a lot easier when it comes to making civilian minis  - there is such an abundance of them. Still need to sculpt some historically accurate clothes on them.

I've finally finished my kabbalist warband :)

They are all based on contemporary sketches of the Jews from Prague by Roelandt Savery ca. 1606. The one next to the Golem is based on a sketch, which according to historians depicts the great Maharal - rabbi Loewe the chief rabbi of the bohemian crown, and according to the legend - creator of the Golem.

His right hand will hold the so called "nasiekaniec", which is a cudgel sort of made of a young oak spiked with flint shards.

Thank you :). No, not an army just this band for some skirmishing in Cairo :).

Marvelous little figures !  The very "spirit of the Age." (or, given the Janissaries, is that spirit of the Agha ! ?)

Thank you  :). This entire project set in the early XVIIth century is a great joy to work on I must say. Now I'm finishing a noble from Cairo based on Sloan's costumebook from 1620s and theb I'll return to researching XVIIth century urban architecture ;p.

Thank you :). I've found information about bohemian burghers' dress from early XVIIth century - they wore hungarian dress, so I'll sculpt or convert a few;p. But I'll need to do a bit more research.

What you're doing is really tremendous, and, I imagine, totally unique.

Thank you :), I think (hope) that this is my last warband for the Prague project, still have to finish Dalmatian mercenary for them as well as work on the burghers in hungarian attire.

You need extra congratulations for the rare historical information you are gathering and for your efforts to sculpt figures as accurate as possible!

Thank you :), I'm lucky that during XVIth-XVIIth century was the period of extensive publishing of costume books, so those informations are not as rare as they seem :).

Thank you :). Most of the minis from this project will be used in playtesting your game :), I just need a few more monks for my Prague Uprising of 1611.
