Conquistadores for Christmas!

Conquistadores for Christmas!

Earlier this year we did a poll for the best matched pair set of plastics and the winner was Conquistadores vs. Aztecs. We're very happy to show off the work that has gone into the Conquistador designs. Our goal is to make a set that works for the Conquest of Mexico as well as filling in your European armies of the early 16th century (or fantasy ones for that matter!) 

Let us know what you think of these in the comments below!

These wonderful sculpts are by the very talented Rob Macfarlane.

 

 

 

Note and Update: you can open the above pic in a new window for a closer view to see all the crossbows. Rob is hard at work adding pike and Montante, some additional shields (not those are only unique parts above - not what is on the final sprue) and here are some more heads that have been added in the meantime:

Wonderful !

How to be frustrated on Xmas day.

Waiting for the Aztecs now…

Greetings from France.

Beautiful work. They capture what I look for in Renaissance Spanish. It would be good to see more than one buckler on each sprue and if design permits it, make the halberds separate tfrom the arms to enable making Spanish Pikemen. Otherwise, excellent and fills a niche for the Italian Wars. They could also kitbash with Perry plastics for Italian Wars Cavalry. Separate arms would also make them useful to take javelibs as Jinettes.

Brilliant, just what I was looking for. When will they be available?

Darren Matthews - December 25, 2020

They look excellent and looking forward to them being released and will certainly get some

More bucklers and some crossbows please..No need for halberds! :)

Every new box is a surprise and a box that we need to buy to be happy, awesome. The miniatures are amazing!

This is going to be awesome. Would love some reloading arms, some spare bits and bobs such as spanning devices, and arquebus accoutrements. Maybe a leather renaissance baldrick on some of the bodies and extra swords would be a very nice touch.

I REALLY like these. Having placed my preorder for the ‘Rifles’ I can see these figures supplying an interesting opposition for them….

I think that it was the TV episode ’Sharpe’s Gold’ which had his rifleman up against some rather strange ‘out of period’ Spanish Conquistadores. Nothing like the book of the same name, but an interesting scenario, as part of a… refight the Sharpe stories.

Of course I might need to do some work with the weapons… so what I need too are some Spanish Guerillas… now where could I get THOSE from??? :-)

Happy Christmas and an excellent 2021 full of new releases for us all!!!
