Khurasan releases 14th C Low Countries and Teutonic foot

Postby Khurasanminiatures » Fri Mar 22, 2019 4:19 pm

We have just expanded our 15mm range of Late 14th Century Medievals with three packs plus one booster set. These are Low Countries spearmen, a booster pack for same, Teutonic Knight Dienstleute with spears and pavises, and the same with crossbows.

The Low Countries infantrymen are in eight poses, all protected to differing extents, half with leg armour as well. They have separate shields enough for all eight -- half are depicted in the image without to show how they look. The booster set is the same, but it adds eight of the nightmarish Plancon spiked clubs that dealt such death to the French knights at Courtrai in 1302. The plancon can be added instead of the spear, and you can also stick the plancon on so that it's wielded two-handed. I would recommend using a mix of German and French crossbowmen for the Low Countries, and a mix of Western and (mostly) German knights for the cavalry.

The Teutonic sets have the men in surcoats. These were feared adversaries, the spearmen being very well protected, some even wearing visored bascinets. (The spearmen are depicted in white surcoats but seem to have got a special dispensation from the Brethren to do so, as wearing white was forbidden in the ordenstaat as a symbol of paganism -- except for the Brethren of course!) These would have commonly worn grey and had the Tau cross as a symbol, which looked like a T instead of a complete cross.

The pike/spearmen are nice, good poses.

Not wild about the 'webbing' on the crossbows, and no sculptor seems to know how a planchon a picot was supposed to be held.

Yes, the crossbows are a bit 'orrible - part of the scale problem in casting I suppose. You would have thought that if the metal was so thick you couldn't clean it out easily, the painter would at least have chosen a very dark colour for the 'webbing' to try an make it disappear in the background rather than making it look like some weird part of the bow itself.
As for plançons, not sure the dual use spearmen work with them, although I guess they will do if no-one else bothers making them in the scale.

They’re separate, so the gamer can stick them on as he desires.
