It seems that at long last we may have the option of doing WSS (and GNW) in 28mm plastics. Wargames factory have been posting lovelly WIP shots of a generic WSS infantryman, and hinting at such extras on the sprue as Pikes, krapus, and command bits. The figure is a steady workman like chap, clean and easy to paint.

Hopefully cavalry and artillery will follow the success of the infantry.

In other new figure news, Eureka have put into production 15mm miquelets. This allows for the war in Catalonia to be done with proper figures. Granted they are only in 15mm, so 6mm, 28mm, 20mm and 40mm gamers will still have to convert. But what fun to see a new subject for this period in any scale.

The Oblask will likely be recruiting some of both these lines and I hope to have some painted examples up soon-ish.

Meanwhile as tsar Peter is fond of naval and maratime affairs, I think I shall have to draft a ship or two.


  1. I really hope that WF manage to pull it around with those figures. Anything that brings in converts to 18thC gaming should be encouraged. The big problem that they seem to have is the loss of detail and sharpness when they go from render to model. The newer sets are getting better, maybe this time.

  2. I've heard similar stories about WF. Hopefully they'll improve.
