Besides the regular packs that could be bought as separate, we have a Premium Collection including one of each codes (10 packs, 56 figures) plus pikes, flags and this exclusive miniature, a veteran of countless fights maestre de campo (Tercio commander).

These look tremendous. Will there be any musketeers and arquebusiers standing - that is, in casual poses rather than firing / loading ?

I also hope you have casual poses.

Wonderful figures.
Will you be doing opponents  too ?
Does anyone have some basic info on how units would be formed ?
Would both types of firearm be used in the same unit ? Or does it depend upon time period.
Again rule suggestions would be helpful for a novice in this period.
Thanks
Jon

Thanks Jon!

Opponents: that's the idea, but would depend on the success of the range. The initial focus was to make Spanish, then will see
Formations: Tercios combined pikemen, musketeers and arquebusiers in the same unit. Pikemen use to form the core and arquebisiers and musketeers formed "mangas" ("sleeves"). Traditionally seems that Spanish Tercios were very rigid formations, but not at all, in fact they were very flexible, with subunits (companies) fighting separate from the main unit, etc. But the usual image is to have pikes in the middle, arquebusiers on one side, musketeers on the other.
Rules: Warlord's Pike and Shot could be a good starting point. Also you have a Spanish ruleset called Tercios, also available in English.

I'm really excited by the look of these figures and I've placed a small order to see what the figures are like 'in the flesh'. I'll report back when I've seen them. They look marvellous from the photos, but bad experiences in the past with other manufacturers have taught me not to invest too heavily without having first handled the figures. I do hope that the tercio commander becomes available with other deals in the future because I suspect that I'll not be buying the Premium Collection - I really like the look of the commander but musketeers and arquebusiers in action poses just don't fit in with my collection.

I've just posted an article at the website on organization and tactics of the Spanish Tercios during the Thirty Years War, available in English. A brief approach in case you know little about this infantry corps. If you gentlemen read it, please send me your feedbacks.  íMuchas gracias!

Thanks  8). This is very much appreciated as a distillation of what the Tercio looked like and how it behaved on the battlefield is certainly of help to a relative novice in this period of warfare  8)
