    ManAtArms up to order from Caliver. The cottage is under "scenery". While you are there, take a look at the scenery from 4Ground.

    I guess it is time to order my MAA sets soon, now that they are officially available.

    Anybody got their plastic men-at-arms yet? I do not expect mine to arrive until next week.

    Apparently, my week-old order from Caliver Books has not even shipped out yet (since I have not been billed for it yet).

    I am still hoping that they will arrive before the hay fever time hits me.

    Re: Perry twins announce WotR range

    Let us know when they arrive, Griefbringer. I have an order pending with Caliver, too, though not as long - and I never had any delay-problems with them before.

    Apart from delivery, any news on how the actual kit works out will be welcome.

    Re: Perry twins announce WotR range

    After reading a couple of artilces on the fall of Granada I am thinking of buying a couple of boxes of the infantry to represent the defenders. Sadly I can't really use the mounted men-at-arms as the Spanish Muslims had moved away from heavy cavalry by then and their horsemen were (almost exclusively) Jinetes.

    Still, I may have to find an excuse...

    Still no sight of my order from Caliver (haven't even been billed yet), time to contact them soon I guess. That said, I probably would not have time to get involved with the models until some time next week, so I am not in a hurry.

    There are a couple of articles out there by people who have received the kit and constructed a few models - especially the ones done by Captain Blood are worth seeing (though I cannot at the moment recall on which website those are to be found).

    Re: Perry twins announce WotR range

    I managed to locate the posts where Captain Blood assembles and paints the men-at-arms:

    http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=40936.0

    I would recommend checking all of those 15 or more pages of it - there seems to be new pics all over the place.

    Also, if you can find the posts where Captain Blood assembles the infantry, then those are certainly worth checking.

    Some more pics of the painted men-at-arms can also be found here:

    I quickly scrolled through Captain Blood's thread; he gives a very good look at the models.

    I WANT THEM, all of them. Those minies do look good. IMHO, good minies to work with have added to the results.

    Oh, it will take me some more time....BUT, I will have them too. More photos please.

    Re: Perry twins announce WotR range

    Looking at the sprues, it seems that there is only one torso per sprue that would be suitable to represent scurriers, is that correct? Or am I misinterpreting and it's the lack of barding on the horse that is commonly used to represent scurriers?

    Re: Perry twins announce WotR range

    Depends on how well armoured you want your scurriers to be - the metal ones on the Perry website seem to sport quite a variety. But the models on the sprues indeed are wearing full plate armour (as they are intended for men-at-arms), with one of them having a livery thrown on top.

    Enterprising modellers might try swapping upper bodies with ones from the infantry sets for lighter armour, but that would still provide one with fully armoured legs for all of the riders, which might be an issue.

    Speaking of the infantry sets, I guess I should order one more of each of them, so I can try mixing them with all of the extra bits from the men-at-arms sets (as well as doing a few body swaps to provide variety for the cavalry units). That is, once I receive the cavalry sets in the first place...

    Re: Perry twins announce WotR range

    I ordered the perry European mercenaries from Maelstrom yesterday, and now I think I'll get the mounted versions. I need to get a ton of gw bases though. Since I play fantasy they'd look massively out of scale on the little flat green bases.

    Re: Perry twins announce WotR range

    I'd reccomend something like these
    http://www.litko.net/categories/Mini...e/Millimeters/
    over GW bases. Much cheaper and you've got a huge variety of sizes and materials to choose from. I'm using the 3mm thick ones myself with Gripping Beast and Warlord Games minis and like them. My Warhammer minis are somewhat over sized compared to the historicals but I explain that as they are different races anyhow! I haven't mixed any historical minis into my Empire army.

    I've been using the 3mm Litko bases for a while, and I'm very happy with them.

    Same for me. I have used (still have some) Litko"s bases for over a year now. They do work for me.
