    Colourful figures but there is something very wrong with the eyes on the second figure.

    Excellent sculpts, I would be very tempted.......are they metal or resin castings ?

    Agree with Keith, nice subjects but the eyes on figure no. 2 are way off. Perhaps just badly painted?

    Also the face of the first figure looks a bit Ken Dodd-ish. Again maybe just down to the painting?

    The raw sculpts look nice, but I don’t think the boxart will tempt many.
    Price is attractive though.

    Agree. Nice figures; poor box art. I think the Wallon's eyes are OK, just very poorly painted.

    Great figures, nice releases. The length of the pike is not a problem, you can change the stick for other, longer, and harder for sure. (Always a problem put a pikeman in any cabinet)

    One of my favorite periods 30 years war !!
    Nice Figures to make a vignete, ART GIRONA as others from the same period also made by Zapatero , possibility to make something great !!

    Agree with the poor painting unfortunately ...

    Quite right.One look at the unpainted figure reveals that they are fine sculpts and for what is worth I can add my own experience as I have painted figures from this line,they are extremely well sculpt and cast.The boxart leaves much to be desired though.

    Hi Paco

    Thanks for sharing the releases , nice looking figures by a talented sculptor

    Agree ref artwork especially the eyes , shame as new painting/ boxart would certainly help IMO

    Hope we see more from the period
