WARFARE FEATURED CODE: WLOA4 Musketeers advancing


WLOA4 Musketeers advancing  is another of the most popular Warfare codes.  The aggressive nature of the poses allows an exciting mix to be created when basing up these miniatures in units.

Painted as Lutterell's Regiment by the late Spencer Warner.

Four body dollies were used as the basis for this code. The models come with plug bayonet attached to the model but these can be removed easily with a craft knife.
 This pose contrasts well with the others.
This dolly is used once in the set but appears elsewhere in the range.

One of my personal favourite sculpts from the early codes is part of this set. The chap second from the left in the shot at the top of the page captures perfectly the aggressive look of a soldier going into the  thick of it. With mouth open perhaps singing, shouting encouragement to his friends or hurling insults at the enemy he looks the business. He may even be praying for deliverance!

The last of the five options in the code is the striding model below who appears to be moving forward with intent!

To create a flavour for how units based around code WLOA4 Musketeers advancing look, here are a variety of shots of finished battalions by various painters.

Clarence Harrison - The first Warfare unit I ever built, my Danish Foot Guard, used this code.

Danish - Garden til Fods (Foot Guard)

Dutch - Brandenberg (again)

  1. This code has only be used by me for 5 of my 32 Battalions so far, the Saxon and the Polish Guard. The bayonetts are a bit brittle and often in Danger to break off. But all together nice Miniatures.

  2. Nice animated look to the code, certainly works well when based as a unit. Wonderful to see a Scanian War figure too, and a good choice using the early war sea-green for the Västmanland uniform, to really show the diversity of uniforms in the conflict.
