I herewith announce that sculpting for a TYW Army will start with December 2015. The main focus will be for a typical Wargames Army in the time between 1635-1645. The reason for this later period lays in the fact that around this time all factions had formed their units after the Netherlandish Ordinance with 1/3 Pike and 2/3 Musketeers.
Also this time offers that there will be no significant difference in terms of Amor or Uniform between Warfaring Parties.
Here is a copy of my mail what I have envisioned to Steve for this Period of time:
I will divert about GBP 3000 (€ 4000) towards you to give the TYW a good head start.
The Numbers of different Miniatures for each Troop Type should be 4-5 but without Heads and with at least one moveable arm(sword arm). Arm Sets?
Starting as always with Infantry, two types, Musketeers and Pikemen, 2 Command Sets of 6 Six Figures each (we need a lot of flags).
Horsemen, on two or three different horses, Heavy and light as already available(Napoleonic range), two or three types, Cuirassiers, Harquebusiers and Dragoons.
In addition to the Dragoons there will be dismounted Dragoons too. Command Sets for Horse are the usual Suspects
The Artillery will consist of large and cumbersome (somewhat fancy) Guns. Regimental 3 to 6 pdr, 12 and 24 pdr as Position Batteries. About 4 to 8 Gun models for a 500 to 800 Figure Army. But could be up to 20 or 30 Models, depends on the Nationality of the Army, i.e., Sweden.
No Limbers at all, as only Armies on the move have them but not on the Battlefield. There they have been almost stationary.
The above will give a lot of Variation by having loose Heads and Arms(1 or 2) and by painting them in different colours (not really necessary) will produce many countries.
So stay tuned, share your thoughts with me, point out certain facts or interests and we will see how we can include that into this huge task.
