Nice looking figures, too.  I am curious to see the comparison shots that Tabletop Games promises.  At the moment I don't see a I-just-want-one-of-everything option, which works best for skirmish and RPG gamers like myself.  Thanks for posting Gamespost.

Ditto... but the 10GBP pledges look quite generous: eight of either pike men or two handed swordsmen. :o
There is this comparison  shot from the KS page (Warlord Games vs these guys):

I've asked regarding this and will let folks know what I find out.

The campaign is close to 2500 pounds which will then include the mounted standard bearer.  It already has reached the stretch goals of mounted general, 4 cavalry, mounted officer, and 4 character figures.  Hoping it can reach the 4 crossbowmen, too.

The figures look good. 

Size wise, it would be nice to see a comparison to the Foundry Landsknechts.

Two changes to campaign ...

1.  After making a regular pledge, folks participating in the campaign will be able to tack on additional groups of 4 infantry or 2 cavalry for 5 pounds each.

As an example, I pledged the Company Group and added on 1 group of 4 swordsmen (5) and 1 of 4 handgunners (5), plus 8 attacking/advancing pikemen (10), and 4 cavalry (10), which added 30 pounds to my 65 pound pledge plus 10 for postage = 105 pounds.

You'll need to add the dollar amount into your pledge amount when you make the pledge to be able to get the additional groups of 4 infantry or 2 cavalry.

They will send out emails regarding this, and if there's an issue contact me, and hopefully I'll see what can be done.

2.  At my request, they have added a Skirmish & Collectors option at 40 pounds where a person can pledge to get one of each figure including the ones with head swaps and the stretch goals.

All righty then.  In.

Looks like the campaign hit 2500 pounds when two folks pledged for the collectors/skirmish option, yes!

It needs 3000 pounds for the 4 crossbowmen, and 3500 for a mounted priest ... let's support this project!

I fell into this pot as well. That collectors pledge just seems like too good a deal to miss out on.

The artillery crew is back on the list!

The stretch goals have been updated further ...

500 - mounted general
1,000 - pack of four mounted knights
1,500 - mounted officer
2,000 - pack of four character figures
2,500 - mounted standard bearer
3,000 -pack of four crossbowmen
3,500 - mounted priest
4,000 - pack of four artillery crew
4,500 - pack of camp follows
5,000 - pack of clergy
5,500 - pack of 'at rest' troops

Currently funded at about 2800!

This means only 200 more to the 4 crossbowmen.

And I'd love to see the campaign make it to the artillery crew at 4000.

Overall I think they're quite nice buuuuuutttttt.........................

Is it just me or do the locks on the handguns look like flintlocks/firelocks/sanphaunces rather than early matchlocks? I can't see them all that clearly but they don't look right.

Another pledge level has been added at 85 pounds ...

For 72 figures:

8 Command
16 Armoured Pike
16 Unarmoured Pike
16 Handgunners
8 Two handed swordsmen
8 Attacking pike/halberd

I'm very likely going to upgrade my pledge from the "Company Group" to the "Battle Group".

And if you're a WFB Empire player, this is could be the pledge level for you!
