Forgive me if this question has already been posed- are there plans to release Dutch, French and Swedes as well as Spanish troops?

I realise that any future plans may well depend upon the sales of the Spanish miniatures so what I'm really asking is if this was envisioned?

Definitely it will depend on the success of the ranges, but yes, that's the idea, to create specific figures for each army rather than generic miniatures.

Hello mate, Helion has an excellent book:

https://www.helion.co.uk/military-history-books/the-armies-of-philip-iv-of-spain-1621-1665-the-fight-for-european-supremacy.php?sid=76e6c53f332fb04fd39036fa5ea2db0f

As a Spaniard, this is the best book I have ever seen in English language, 100% recommended.

Cheers

Agree, I know the book and its very recommended. ¡Gracias Chema!

Seconded. At the moment, I don't think that there are any specific TYW French or Dutch figures, although I believe that TAG are hoping to bring some out in the future. Also, imho, and I suspect that others will disagree, I don't think that there is a satisfactory TYW Swedish range available.

Some chaps in shirt sleeves or warmer weather clothing might be nice. Arguably the most useful thing the tercios of this period achieved was assisting the Portuguese in evicting the Dutch from Salvador da Bahia in 1625. Being a bit crap at football would have been a disastrous legacy for Brazil. I used to gaze down upon Forte São Marcelo when we lived in Brazil and have always fancied fielding forces for the siege of the city.

After purchasing the Cuba range of infantry and as now have assembled and painted the U.S. forces, I can tell you that the quality and detail of the figures are superb.
I would only imagine the same of the new range, and of course I will have to purchase soon.
Even if the line was not to continue at least I would have these excellent models in my collection.
I am still disappointed for not purchasing some FG ACW before they closed up shop.

Hi! Yesterday was the Inmaculada Concepci󮬠a bank holiday that commemorates the Empel Miracle of 1585 (see thread at our social media). But the real miracle indeed was me finishing the first codes of musketeers and arquebusiers! I hope you like the freshly done pictures, the painted musketeers, arquebusiers and command group codes II will follow soon.
