The new landsknecht boxed sets (missile troops and zweihanders) are now listed on Warlord website with lots of pictures, though unfortunately no sprue shots:

Apparently the missile troops are all plastic, while the zweihanders are apparently plastic with metal arms.

There are 3 new heads on the missile box and one new body ? Think the arms could work smothly with the perrys for around 1500.

They look..... awkward?

If some of the sprues are available separately I might pick a couple up for conversion purposes, but I can't say I'm overwhelmed by the whole product.

Mind, I don't think the flat paintjob is doing them many favours either...

Distinctly.
If these had ever made it as a single set, as originally conceived, I think they would have been great.
Unfortunately Warlord have screwed around with them to try to wring several sets out of one set of figures, and the result is... meh.

Flat paintjob? I didn’t think I did a bad job considering I had to do 2 complete boxsets in 2 1/2 weeks but to be fair the pics are a bit meh, I assure you they are better in the flesh

Their arms look very long. I think it MAY be the puffy sleeves either making them look too big, Or the arms have been glued too low down and the puffy shoulders should stand higher?
never trust a horse, they make a commitment to shoes that no animal should make.

Don’t know...maybe I was looking forward to this set for too long, but I also am a bit disappointed. The same pose for zweihänder, pikemen, crossbows and arquebusiers seems odd.
