 Not sure why that has happened.

 The pictures were from FB and where taken at a wargames show.

Thanks. The links are clearly not working but gave me enough to find them on the dreaded FB. 'The USA "By Fire and Sword" community' posted the pictures in March 2019 (which should help you find them).

Compared to the rest of the BFaS range they appear to be of a lower standard. I realise that they are more than likely preproduction 3D prints so could well be a long way from the products that make it into production, but there is nothing there that would make me rush out to buy them.

Do you happen to remember if it was the Sengoku period? I'm guessing it might be as it fits with the Renaissance theme albeit a little earlier  ???

If the miniatures are of a high standard I think I could see myself being drawn into this.

 The Brexit problem could mean higher prices for lots of things including miniatures. Will just have to wait and see.


Was just discussing this earlier today. Wonder what the impact of VAT will be?

One of the interesting facets of the rules is the wide variety of troops that you can field - lots of interesting eastern forces - and a very interesting points system that gives the chance to have a very wide difference in numbers fielded.
(For any non-players, the points lists are given as army force points varying from 2 points for the smallest skirmish group to about 16 for a large reconnaissance group. Each player secretly choses a force point number, which could give a difference in value up to 14, so no equally balanced list for all games)
Gary, Glynis, and Alasdair (there are three of us, but we are too mean to have more than one login)
