I ordered mine on the 3rd of January. Be interesting to see how long they take to get to NZ.

Some of the new figures appearing on the facebook page are looking very nice.

Thank you, Curt, but all glory (or almost all :)) for the sculptor, Maxim, he's really Master.
We're always glad to have new orders.
Need to note - new figures, we show not so far ago, aren't available yet. We still need to finish some miniatures, and this shall be done during this week, then pack of new figures will go to production.

Let me show you some photos of miniatures, which are available for now:
Walking musketeers, ordnance crew and reiter, Saker and the crew (see the attachments)

Walking pikemen with officers and falconet

(soldiers on this photo were painted by me several years ago)

Size of our miniatures is 'classical - 28 mm from the ground to the eyeline (about 32 mm to the top). Here's photo of our reiter with Warlord's Wallenstein, Imperial Commander

Very nice indeed.  Lovely poses, quite understated, which is nice for ranking up.  Love the horse that the Reiter is riding, very nicely proportioned.

Are you planning on some more active poses for cavalry, push of pike, firing musketeers? etc

I haven't commented on the figures I received because I intended to post a comparison shot showing them against other figures I have lying around. I can see, however, that I won't get round to doing that for a bit, so here are a few thoughts.

In my view the figures are superb. The sculpting is excellent and the detail on them is amazing. They're very delicate-looking, tall and slim, and I like the poses. In terms of size, they're not really exactly like anything else I normally buy. I don't have any Bicorne, Empress or Renegade infantry figures but my guess is that they may be similar height but much slimmer than either Bicorne or Renegade. The nearest match I can find at the moment is with a Perry WOTR metal figure I have lying around, which is taller and slightly differently proportioned from Perry ECW (the Perry ECW range was their first range for Perry Miniatures, and their sculpting style has seemingly moved on a bit over the years). I'll certainly be buying more of these figures. I really love them, but I haven't yet decided whether I'll mix the infantry in the same unit with any other makes.

Yes. In near future (in 2-3 weeks, I hope) new group of soldiers will be released. There will be: 3 pikemen in battle line (3 rows), 3 pikemen standing (can be used for 4-6 rows), two officers - standing with two pistols and walking with partizan, 2 musketeers firing, and 3 more mounted soldiers (standing) - 2 reiters and a dragoon.

Here's photos of upcoming miniatures (not all of mentioned above are ready yet) - hope they can be seen. If not - please tell me, I'll fix it

Close enough to hard plastic. Can easily be cut or filed if needed (but usually cast is clear enough and there's almost no any seams need to be removed). Thin elements (as musket stakes or swords) will bend before to be broken.
By the way, if such elements are bent when you get the figure - you may put it in hot water or use hot air to straighten it -just keep it for a couple of seconds in hot then it will straighten itself (or you'll need to help a little with hand or tweezers).
