NEW COMMAND FIGURES

A couple of little parcels came today, one from Paul Wood at Ensign Miniatures http://www.ensignhistoricalminiatures.co.uk/miniatures.html
These are more traditional toy soldiers but will fit in very well with the existing figures I have. Paul doesn't have the full ECW range available any more but still can make some of the command figures and a very nice little mortar set.

The officer with the telescope will fit in very well with an artillery piece or as a siege engineer.

The other package contained a star find on e-bay from the German manufacturer Peipp Miniaturen.
 He will make a superb General.

Normally this figure retails at a massive 32 euros, so I was delighted to grab him at a fraction of that. Peipp have a very large 54mm Thirty Years War range (as well as excellent eighteenth century figures) including some superb officer figures and personalities, but they are very expensive and also not quite to scale with most other 54mm manufacturers. However this is not so important with the officers, and the point of this project is to get painted figures onto the table without being to fussy about details such as scale etc.
