Michael was kind enought to sculpt a special Swedish head in the typical "Onion shaped kettle hat with eye slits" seen on the Dolnstein drawings and I got a picture of it from him this morning, not to be seen elsewhere;) Thanks Michael, very appreciated !
So now we just have to sit tight and waite for the box to arriwe and we can get us some Swedish Mounted "Svenner" and "Skyttar"...it´s a long wait... according to Michel Perry: "We can't really say as it's down to fitting into Renedra's schedule, but should be early next year. Same horses as before. Yes, 4 bodies, 12 new heads (3 kettle hats per sprue) arms to equip whole box as mounted crossbow or mounted archers or hobilers. Plus a few extras, separate sallet, trumpet arm and sword arm. "
Here are more pics of the 'light cavalry' for the 1450-1500 period. Not all of the bits are shown here but they give you an idea of what is coming, i.e., the choice of mounted crossbow, mounted archers and hobilars/coustiliers plus one or two extra bits.
There will be 12 new heads, although a couple of them look very similar in style to the previous ones, including a couple of particularly Germanic, Italian, Swiss and Swedish looking ones.
There is no release date yet but the greens are 99.9 per cent finished and will be heading Renedra's way very soon.
