I received last week my first Kickstarter order, from Firelock Games' Blood & Plunder games.
I bought me just some miniatures, I am not interested (yet) in the rules, although I have heard only good things about them.
I ordered the European Militia box, and some Dutch militiamen. I want them for my mid to late XVII c. Spanish army.
The miniatures, in general terms, are well sculpted and the proportions are correct Imho... The thing I don´t like is the 20mm round base cast on them, but it is not a big problem.
They are digitally sculpted, and you easily notice it. I prefer the "traditional" way, but they are good miniatures.
Dutch musketeers, I find them very interesting for 1660-70' Walloon or Dutch militia or foot soldiers.
I think it has too much flash...
Regarding the uniformed men, they are very nice Matchlock armed soldiers, with the early "webbing", no waist belt yet. so I think they are intended for 1660-80'.
You get 8 musketeers, I don't know yet If I will base them individually or regimented in square bases. They are very versatile, you can field almost every nation with these miniatures.
And the last part is the cavalry... Frankly, I do not like them, the poses, the horses (too big for dragoons) and the way they have been casted in 2 parts; rider torso and horses with the rider's legs.
4 cavalry are included, plus a mounted commander .
I recommend this brand, good quality, not very cheap but a period you don´t see quite often. They are perfect and well researched for colonial militia in pirate games, and also good for Europe and skirmishes in late XVII c.
