We had requests for a comparison to the Warlord Landsknecht set. I did a quick photo shoot (with an extreme closeup hence the fuzziness). The landsknecht puddle base is about .5mm taller than the Spanish so I compensated with a bit of paper magnet under ours although it's still about 1mm or so off. In general our guys are taller and a touch beefier but with more proportionate heads. See what you think...
Thank you for that. I am looking forward to the Conquistadors for both historic and fantasy use!
As someone who plans to use them for fantasy, "taller" and "beefier" are always good so they don;t look too out of proportion next to fantasy minis.
Any chance we could get a side by side with GW zweihanders?
Looks great to me!
Of course, I'm not very picky about this scale, but these are pretty close in my book.
Super helpful! Thank you very much.
Here are my conquistadors built for Freeguild along with a size comparison with (7th edition) GW artillery crewmen
Those conquistadors really look fantastic, can't wait to get mine. And great to see what they can mix with the older GW kits that were a little more historical-oriented despite being fantasy.
Now they just need some 16th century Ottomans to fight against (one can dream!)
@Daniel Broaddus Are your units going to be a mix-mash of weapons (like the old Empire militia)? Or are those pictured above from several different units?
I am thinking
30 sword and buckler
2 x20 gun
and a bonus 30 halberd (made from landsknecht bodies)
@William Redford I'm a Wargames Atlantic maximalist (mostly that is). I'm just using WA to make my Freeguild stuff.
