The Knights of the 16th century were an explosion of colour and extravagance. Wearing richly ornamented armour often featuring grotesque details and engraving, the amour would have been of the highest quality with the top armouries of europe competing to produce better and more richly ornamented armours. The armour was often covered with expensive fabrics and helmets decorated with ostrich feather plumes to further enhance the appearance of these nobles.
You can use these figures for Rennaisance collections and fantasy collections so they are very versatile!
The aim of this campaign is to release three sets of these Knights, which will be cast in white metal.
A further incentive to join this campaign is that the retail price of these packs will be higher once available for general release.
These figures will allow you to customise your collection as they come separate from the horses with separate heads and separate plumes so the figures have many variables.
Here are the sets.....
Further more sets will be added to the collection in the future so you will be able to amass an impressive force!
The armour and dress of these figures has been meticulously researched and painstakingly sculpted.
There are six separate bodies sculpted to date plus six horses 16 heads and 16 plumes.
If you want more packs add and additional packs add £15 per pack to your pledge.
Further if you want to add a full 16 head set to your pledge add £15 to your pledge and again for 16 plumes add a further £15
Check the updates for pictures of the other heads and plumes plus there will be a bonus figure for all backers! More on that soon....
Risks and challenges
The figures are sculpted and ready to be cast by griffin moulds one of the best mould makers in the business.
There can be delays waiting for griffin to complete the orders because griffin can be very busy. The wait however is always worth it.
I have successfully run three kickstarter fully delivered to happy customers and I'm pleased to say nobody has ever sent their figures back!
Please note that the miniatures in the pictures still require some refinement and the figures you receive will be even better than they appear in the photos.
