Warlord Games Wars of Religion
« on: May 18, 2018, 03:40:34 PM »
I've just received a newsletter from Warlord Games which announces the release of more figures in their Wars of Religion range. These are mounted arquebusiers including command figures and Knights Hospittaler. Some at least look like Paul Hicks sculpts. In the case of the arquebusiers I suspect they were originally done for Arsenal Miniatures.

Would these be a good fit with Assault Group Later Landsknechts?

Kommando _J: actually, Arsenal Miniatures first posted photos of some of these figures in 2010.

They look nice, and the arquebusiers are on Ebob horses unless I'm much mistaken.

Finally released! Anyone knows if these are the last of the Arsenal range or if we can expect more to come?

traveller: I don't know whether Warlord plan to release them, and, if they do, when, but Paul Hicks sculpted some heavy cavalry for Arsenal / Warlord, which haven't ever been released to my knowledge.

Actually, I wonder whether there might also be some sword and buckler figures sculpted by Paul Hicks somewhere. If you look at the ones painted for Arsenal by Tom Weiss, they are not the same figures as the sword and buckler figures released by Warlord as part of this range.

I just found the image below and it looks like you are right Paul. With any luck these will also be released at some point. Just ordered the new figures and they look great, it's a shame that the Ottomans weren't sculpted to the same high standard.

Those look fab, and yeah, I bought the ottoman boxed set ages ago, weak joins, awful sculpts and a few broken ones made me just hand them back for a refund.

It'd be nice to get a separate command set.
