Re: Eastern Crusade

I've always been mystified by the lack of Byzantines and the lack of renaissance sets available. I think the Byantines suffer from being overshadowed by their less successful cousins in the West - which is a paradox in itself. As for renaissance, it is probably the most diverse and colourful period imaginable and yet is so poorly covered. Years ago I could understand as the market was very reliant on kids buying figures and none of them would have heard of Landsknechts, stradiots, streltsi or ginetes but, the market is much more sophisticated now, and there have already been some forays into the period, with Janissaries and Streltsi but there still isn't the makings of an army and the gaps need to be filled.

Re: Eastern Crusade

Byzantine's would be great! You'd have to do some Romanians, Hungarians, etc.
Seljuks are already in place. They need someone to fight against!

A group of Vlad's troops would be excellent. I believe Lucky Toys is working
on a set of these.

I would also like to say more 17th Century troops would be great also. Some
polish infantry and more swedes and imperials would all be great.

Cheers all!
