This is amazing, although I'm not keen on the same poses different weapons ploy with the Swiss et al, that strikes me as slightly sharp practice. Although, in fairness no-one should be taken in and think they are buying different figures as the contents is very clearly illustrated on the box. Personally, I think Redbox would have been better to simply have included a set of pikes and an set of halberds in every box, I suspect the vast majority will end up as pikemen anyway. Certainly, if I get some (still humming and haaing, as I already have a lot of renaissance stuff in 15mm metal) then I will use florists' wire for pikes and will probably use metals halberds from someone like Tumbling Dice.
However, what I really wanted to say is how great the half-orc sets from Alliance are (in fact the set 2 dwarves are nice although slightly flat). The half-orc pikemen are just superb. When I got them last week I simply had to lightly glue them to bases just to see what they looked like en masse! As another poster said, isn't amazing that the one set that gets pikes right ends up being a fantasy set. Whoever sculpted the half orc pikes needs to apply his skills to real life pikemen.
I also hope Red Box /Haron will produce Easterm European forces of XVI ad.FOr example russian feudal infantry or polish hussar of 1514 battle of Orsza
Are there plans to expand the Jacobite range ?

Awesome! Any idea as to when the Amazon sets will be out or when at least some pix will be posted? Hope Half Orcs 4 includes one running with torch!
Any idea when you will be doing more Elves? We got Elves 2, but never got any more.
