Interesting (and good, I think) approach. Will you add barding to the knights' horses as well?

Judging the market interest from your Kickstarters I must say that I really appreciate and admire what it is that you do with this range. The quality is far better than that of many of the big names in 10mm. You really accomplish a lot with limited means.

Ya, barding and tack would be included with the riders, if necessary.

Thanks, the plan is to keep on doing it while it can pay for itself. I've been, effectively, reinvesting the same $1000 for the past two years. Once the profits can sustain new units I'll be able to get that back, but I need a bit more of a product base first.

Do you intend to branch out to other themes as well once the landsknecht "era" is fully covered?

Ya, likely Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth or Feudal Japan.

You mean "not-Kislev"? 😉

Yes. Samurai are, most definitely, "not-Kislev".

That idea with the horse sculpts sounds great- especially as you can then also sell the plain horses, and people can use them to make their own wagons, terrain, or similar oddities.

I'm curious- how well do the models tend to sell post-kickstarter? Are there still people buying the Landsknecht models?

The pikemen have been the best seller, the others less so but I have had to reorder all of them at one point or another.

Some proper winged Polish hussars would be very welcome.

Ya, I think there'd be a good market for them.

One would have to agree. Possibly even more for a Commonwealth range than for the Landsknechts considering what's in supply on the second hand market today.

I was thinking the same thing!  If you are making some plain horses anyways, might as well sell them.  I know I'd like a few plain horses for some wagon trains and what not.

Also some Hussars would be fantastic.  Keep up the great work!
