Warlord (Pro-gloria) plastic Landsknechte
« on: August 09, 2013, 09:23:30 PM »
From Pro Gloria on facebook:

Quote
Here is another preview of our cover art - it's an A3 picture but scanned two times with an A4 scanner so please forgive me the scanner line in the middle of the picture. Peter Dennis is almost finished with the picture and yes, for everyone who guessed it will be the cover of our plastic Landsknecht box - you are right!

I can't give many details of the box but just some now:

- sculpting work will be done by the talented sculptor Paul Hicks
- tooling company will be Renedra Ltd in the UK
- no release date yet, but we aim to release them around Christmas
- the box will be a kickstarter with many kickstarter-only models, and many other special miniatures
- out of the box you can build 24 Landsknechte, either useable as German, Swiss, Italian or French.



So, the rumours were true.  Not too sure about a Christmas release, as sculpting is still in progress, but time will tell, perhaps?  Pretty excited about this one.

Well, well done to Stephan. Stolen a march on the Perrys. Pretty sure they'd have got round to landsknechts sooner or later... Should be very interesting... Will follow with interest, and maybe even invest!  ;)

Haven't heard that yet.  I imagine relatively soon?  They have not said.

Yes, very interesting; their white metal figures are very nice.

want them.

usually when only 20+ models are in a box, we can expect a lot more options to build!
Of course, perry are the exception. :D

So an established era by (apparently, don't know them,) an establshed company by a well known sculptor, yada-yada-yada, starts with a kickstarter.  :?

Sign of the Apocalypse?  ???  Sign of the times?   ;)  Or just a very 21st Century business model?  :o

Well, if it gets a complete (or close) line going I guess it's good.

Come to think of it, I remember 1970's companies putting out a few fantasy figures followed by a few (main stream) historical figures, followed by a few science fiction... rinse, repeat.... and never finishing anything completely.

Okay, the picture looks very good.  Certainly not an era of interest (and not a scale of preference for most of what I plan.)


Good luck to them, not that they will need it.

Gracias,

Glenn

I really understand your point, but i've to say that Pro Gloria, even though it looks like a big company, it's held by Stephan, and he is less than 20.
In my opinion, he is the perfect user for Kickstarter.

Hear, hear.
Pro Gloria might not be very big or well known, but they have done a good job of building a brand.

Sounds reasonable.

Unfortunately I don't play games in that era.

Success!

Stephan is less than 20?  That is very impressive!
