Painting Conquistadors

Painting Conquistadors

Andreas Heneborn has been painting and taking photos for the Conquistador/16th Century infantry set and we like what we see!

 

We previously mentioned that we ended up expanding this set from a full frame to a frame and a half to make sure we could fit all the weapon and head/helmet options we could. We think we've ended up with a much more versatile set with many more options for the 16th century and even a bit before. 

Because we expanded the set to a second tool we needed to fill up that remaining 1/2 and the parts for that other (secret for now) set is with the engineers for splits and layout. Once that's complete this will be off to tooling. 

Here are the two frames that will be in the set. You'll get 5 of each: 

 

 

Hopefully it won't be much longer until we can let you know it's in tooling. We'll be showing off the Aztec frame soon as well.

If you can fit in some empty hands just to create unarmed minis – perhaps one open, a fist, a pointing hand… these would be pretty small on sprueplace and would enhance almost all of your human sets.

Looking forward to these “secrets”, and hoping for more different bodies.

Looking at the story of Magellan, which happened around the same time, he and his band of 50 fought off some 1500 natives for an hour – even walking to their village and burning down some houses – before finally succumbing or retreating, but this means he and his men must have worn plate from the thights up – he was brought down by hits to his lower legs and feet. Some better armored bodies would probably fit that scenario, and be usefull for frontrankers, too.

Really looking forward to these.

I am considering sci-fi-ing them up a little too.

The iconic helmets and curiass , always reminds me of watching ‘The Flashing Blade’ which was dubbed into English back in the 70’s.

Loved the look and it has stayed with me ever since.

Keep up the great work guys and produce Crimean War British Grenadier Guards. Please!

Always good to get heaps of variety so your soldiers don’t end up with the exact same beard.

And you can save the left over heads for some particularly gruesome terrain.

Beautiful painting and great models! I count 25 heads on the two sprues so that means 125 heads for 30 torsos?
