Thanks Rui. Perfectly fair  :)

Lovely figures and conversions.
I said yes to the Scots.
My last order from you came in the mail, yesterday.
Great figures, thanks.

Thanks Randy. Glad they made it safely all the way to (almost) the Pacific! And glad you like the figures  :)

I identify as Scottish these days so Yes to the Scots - they’ll sit nicely alongside all my undercoated but unpainted Bicorne Scots.  And a double YES to ragged figures :)

lol It’s always good to have more undercoated figures sitting there looking at you :)

My purchase of the last round of Bloody Miniatures had been held over until Father’s Day. Now that they are once again in my sweaty palms I am again taken with how exquisite they are. Many are destined to become Scots. :D

I second that!  lol
Actually I did some research and there were Scots fighting in northern Germany in the 30YW, so I’m sold.  :o

Haha. Thank you friends  :)
I can confirm the Scots are coming (later this year) and mighty fine they look too.

But first...

The new sculpts are in, so I can start showing you upcoming Bloody Release 4, which I hope to get into the webstore by mid-September.  I hope you'll agree that Nick has excelled himself once again

First up, we have 'The Unhorsed Cuirassiers' - Lobsters en melee with pistols, swords, poleaxes and cavalry picks. Making a valiant last stand, or perhaps carrying the fight to the enemy!

Common in the Thirty Years War, there are only three documented formations of heavily armoured cuirassiers in the English Civil War, one of which (Blagge's Royalist Horse) may never have actually mustered.
 
Many individual commanders and their personal lifeguards did still favour full armour though, and this led to instances of unhorsed cuirassiers having to fight for their lives.
Because if you couldn’t shoot or stab the heavily armoured man, then you downed the horse, then dealt with the rider.
Edmund Ludlow, a cuirassier in Essex’s Lifeguard at Edgehill in 1642, unhorsed and unable to remount thanks to his heavy armour, was forced to fight it out on foot.
The second Earl of Northampton, the Royalist commander at Hopton Heath in 1643, was unhorsed and killed in desperate hand to hand fighting after refusing quarter.
And Sir Arthur Haselrig, colonel of the famed ‘London Lobsters’, was unhorsed at Roundway Down (also 1643), tried to surrender, and was rescued just in the nick of time.
So, plenty of interesting skirmish scenarios for these fellows  >:D
(And of course, in the Thirty Years War armies of Pappenheim and Wallenstein, where fully armoured cuirassier regiments were much more widely employed).

Absolutely cracking! Although heretically I immediately thought of using them as not-Reiksguard footknights in an Empire army...!

I bet they were, they get everywhere. You could be exploring the darkest reaches of the Orinoco or the Zambesi and stumble across some tribe wearing tartan and all called McDonald.

And those dismounted cuirassiers look just great. Perhaps defending (or attacking?) fortifications?
