Khurasan releases Italian Wars range (AD)
« on: January 22, 2020, 01:12:59 PM »
We are very pleased to release the first codes in our 15mm early 16th century Italian wars range — “Ravenna to Rome, 1509-1527”

http://khurasanminiatures.tripod.com/early-sixteenth-century.html

(... and yes we know 1509 is the battle of Agnadello, not Ravenna, but “Ravenna to Rome” sounds better).

The first releases are the gendarmes/elmeti, and the codes for the French troops (Archers, other lighter cavalry, and foot and guns).  Landsknechts and Stradiots will be made next, then Spanish and Italians.

 :-* :o Holy moly the paint jobs. I don't know this period very well but I'm tempted to read up on it just to know the context of the figures.

Very nice indeed.  Are these big 15s?  I'm hoping I can match the Archer cavalry with Venexia Italian Wars 15mm.

The French artillery looks just splendid.  I don't need any more artillery but I'll buy a couple of guns and crews just to have them.

Ive got a big collection of Blue Moon 18mm Italian Wars figures. Wonder how these Khurasan figures match up with them size wise?

I took the plunge anyhow.  I reckon the riders will certainly be compatible and if the horses are a bit smaller I can sabot them or replace with Venexia ones.

MGH, if Blue Moon are consistent in size I'd say you will be fine with the cavalry but the infantry will be a bit bigger than Khurasan.

At last! Wonderful.
Are you doing early Landsknechts?

I’m doing landsknechts for the period 1509-27.

Good, glad you cleared that up. I look forward to seeing how you sculpt them for the 1509-16 bit then.

Been looking forward to seeing these released; Have to wait until I've finished all my other painting before I embark on the new project but they look terrific (which is no surprise given how much I like the late C16th range too)

I hope you don't mind me asking, is there a chance that you might get a UK or European distributor?

I’ve been asking for years.  They do so many ranges I would be interested in but so far no luck
