Is the officer miniature of a particular person or just generic?

He is based on this guy.  ;) Count Heinrich Graf zu Pappenheim

I have just managed to place the new figures into my eshop, so they are available to anyone interested. I only blackwashed the figures - which is just a temporary attempt to show the details (not the best) :) - but I will work hard to paint them. :o

Fantastic figures - and the Pappenheim is a true portrait.

Excellent news, Emil : I shall place an order in a few weeks' time.

The Scots musketeer is an excellent idea, especially for people like me interested in Christian IV's army - Mackay's regiment in Danish service is a unit that has long tickled my fancy. Since they usually received full sets of clothing from their continental employers upon landing in North Germany, Scots mercenaries would have been largely indistinguishable from their German counterparts but a few lads in celtic gear may be allowed to find their way in Scottish units on the tenuous assumption that a minority of men may have clung to their plaids and bonnets after being re-clothed in continental gear. 

Out of curiosity, what is the historical source for the shield-armed pikeman ?

Arthur, the pikeman with the shield is practically a targeteer with a pike. :) When going through some texts, I noticed a short mention that in 1649 emperor Ferdinand III decided to keep in service 9 foot, 9 cuirassier and 1 dragoon regiments and this way he actually started the permanent army. In the foot regiment there were 80 targeteers with a shield, rapier and a shorter pike. So, I used that to have the figure sculpted. It can be used with a pike, or it can hold a sword.

There were also many mercenaries fighting in the Kingdom of Bohemia (such the Scots) and the Spanish Hapsburks supported their kins in Austria with some spanish regiments. So, I suppose they kept their weapon and style of combat. The figure was inspired by the soldier on the painting of the battle of Rocroi.

Do you mean the date when I added the new figures to the eshop?  ??? They have been available since 1 May 2018.

Yes, but for all figures. So I can see, which figures I bought and which figures a new. Every time new figures are added you can see, which figures a new.

IŽll second that, figures unfortunately tend to be lost in the huge unpainted lead mountain  8)
