1670ies range from Nostalgic revival

Some of you mabe know my friend John's blog nostalgic revival. Ok, I can't say he was very busy here in the last few month.....

But John is busy selling figures. Strange he sells more without a shop than I do with two....
Must depend on the great old nostalgic figures of which he bought the rights to repoduce.

But not just selling the old stuff, John is working on new conversions too to expand his ranges. For example these guys here, converted from Les Higgins 20mm figures by Robert Hall who is the specialist for this period in my eyes!

These guys are very useful for the early wars of Louis XIV in the Netherlands, up to ghe Glorious revolution, maybe Tangier 1680ies, battle of the Boyne and the war of the League of Augsburg. Not to forget the siege of Vienna and the Turkish wars of this period. Later they changed the muskets and the 12 apostels disappeared. But in my mind this has taken a longer time then we thought as the military is usually first working down the old stuff before introducing the new modern material.

So if anyone is interested and doesn't know John's mail-address let him put it down in the comments

    1. don't ask me yet I had better see what you have, I love the 18th century, my current projects revolve around an imagi-nation of mine so its really hard to pin anything down, basically I look and see and if something catches my eye I think of a way to incorporate it... like Württemberg infantry which I made into the nations regular soldiers.
