Thinking about dipping into FoGR, I'm having a miserable time finding some quality Landsknechte to field. Most of what I see doesn't look too good. Any one know some good makers out there? (preferably with some cheap Aussie postage)

Hi Noah,
Museum make some good landsknetchs in 15mm and Eureka sells them so postage shouldn't be too bad. They are a large size 15mm but very nicely cast with lots of different poses available.

Regards
Martin

I'm assuming you're thinking Italian Wars era (ie beginning 1500s). There is also the option of later (mid-late 1500s) ones from Grumpy:

I'm just prepping these for painting now, while not to everyone's taste I love the sculpts.

I have general late medievel Museum (also from Eureka), they are large as Martin states, but pretty nice too.

And... like most things of this nature, the grumpy wargamers on TMP have an opinion about it:

I reckon Essex are best for their wide range. Also do really nice Spanish Pike so you can mix in morions and also good range of early Pike types for variety. Ease of painting is a plus too as Venexia often have lots of flash.

Thanks guys, I'll look into all your suggestions. I was a bit turned off by Essex's pics of their models (probably they are just selling themselves short a bit on the quality) but I'll give them a second look. I am a little turned of by the lack of pictures for Museum's range but I'll certainly be seriously considering the suggestions here anyway.
If there's a few 15mm Renaissance games running next meeting I'll make sure to have a look around at what's there.

If you are going for an Italian Wars army you should also look at Mirliton which has some very nice figures for Condotteri, Swiss and Burgundians. http://www.mirliton.it/

Available in Australia from Dean at Olympian Games http://www.olympiangames.com.au/

I always think Essex dont look like anything but when they are painted on table they seem to always look good IMHO

Forgot to mention the Mad Axeman figure review page:

Pretty good, and allows the community to feed into it.

How'd you go with this Noah?

I am feverishly getting these Tupi done (25% painted), but am looking forward to playing FoG:R again.
