Evolution of Warfare Miniatures Gardes Francaises Models

These pikemen are being production moulded now

Barry Hilton - Clibinarium and I have discussed the final look of the Gardes Francaises at length and although we were both delighted with the pikemen, we were not totally comfortable with the musketeers. Clibinarium himself will post about the evolution of the musketeer sculpts soon but this brief note is here to let you know that they have been redesigned and will appear shortly on the blog. They will have more options than the first sculpts thus offering significant variety between multi battalion forces. The Gardes had six battalions.

The other good news is that the command pack is also designed but some further detailing work is underway. Here is a teaser shot to keep everyone going.

This also means that I'll have to speak very nicely to Mr Harrison as we would like to release the flags with the figures! Clarence, are you reading this?

More soon..

  2. The full array of Gardes Francaises models should be completed over the next week. We'll then move into master casting and if there are no glitches, full production. I would then expect the GF to be available in September.

  3. This is one of those units you have to have the "look" just right. I was planning on doing two myself; one in soft hats and one in tricorns. I have the soft hats done already, but looking at what you guys are putting out, may have to do another one. My first unit came from Imperialist Miniatures. They had a line specific for the unit. Looking forward to the unit package deal.

  4. Agreed Greg. That is why we've taken so long to try and get it right. The rest of the command models are stunning. The reworked musketeers with both Matchlock and Firelock options will follow.
