Oliver, Simon, would these be suitable for Burgundians?
I have some Front Rank figures to add to my army and wonder if style and size would be compatible? Thanks in advance.

If you want to use these as Burgundians of Charles the Bold (ie to 1477), afraid these are too late. The Steel Fist knights cover the Italian Wars period of c 1515-1540 (I believe).
Based on Oliver's previous sculpts that I have, the Steel Fist figures are very compatible with Perrys - and would be 28mm foot to eye height. matching to Front Rank is always tricky, as they tend to be slightly larger and bulkier sculpts. However, matching ranges is always a personal thing and you may have a different perspective, once figures are based and painted etc. Personally, I don't think they'd match from size/style - and also the FR range is 1450-1490 too.
Hope that helps - am sure Oliver can confirm/deny.

WRGMR, if you want Burgundians of Charles the Bold, think the armor styles of the War of the Roses, i.e. 1470's, not 1530's.  In addition to the Perrys' excellent range (in both metal and plastic), Steel Fist also makes a small range of nobles of the 15th century (dismounted - 9 figures in three 3 figure packs) which can complement them (see below).  But the figures in this thread are decidedly too late.

Simon, Metternick, thanks for you replies.

My existing army is Front Rank WOR line, using Armati 2 rule set, double size, 150 points, so approx 350 figures. I sold some Old Glory painted figures that were in the army and replaced them with some more FR I need to paint up yet. Looking at Oliver's sculpts got me drooling!
My army is really designed for gaming, using these rules, which has listings for knights, heavy cavalry, and a lesser protected heavy cavalry. There is also light cavalry. Trying to denote each troop type on a gaming table with that many figures can be tricky. I use unarmored horses and riders for the lesser protected. Some armored horses and riders for the more protected and usually armored horses and rider for knights.
Most likely these are not the correct figures for the time period, however I bought a third of them painted and decided to continue with the same type of figures.

These are not anywhere near your beautiful paint jobs Simon, but good enough for gaming.

Knights.



Heavy Cavalry, with protection.



Heavy Cavalry without protection.



Knights and heavy cavalry.

Don't put your painting skills down.
Your knights are very well painted, looking at your photos.

These figures would not be sutable for 15th century Burgundians they are 1510-1550ish size wise these are about they size of Perry plastics, with the horses being marginally bigger.
Cheers

These are lovely.  I'd seen the others on your website at some point, and as soon as I saw these more recent ones the style looked familiar.  There will come a moment when I order from your site.

And by the way, wonderful painting of the cavalry shown on your website.

wrgmr 1 the armor of your current figures are certainly suitable for Burgundians (or WOTR for that matter).  A fine looking army.
