Medieval Turks

Dear Strelets, do you have any plans on expanding your medieval range? I hope you will consider a mini-set of medieval Turkish Infantry 14-16th centuries. A mix of pole-arms, bows, matchlocks. This set would match up very well with your excellent Turkish cavalry. This of course would lead to Eastern European enemies-Hungarian light cavalry, Vlad the Impaler, late Byzantines, all of which could be mixed with your medieval levy sets. Thanks for your consideration.

Re: Medieval Turks

Dear Jason,

no, we don't have such plans at the moment. To the best of our knowledge, Lucky Toys are going to make Vlad the Impaler set, so we assume the Turks will follow eventually.

Regards,

Strelets

Re: Re: Medieval Turks

Does Lucky Toys even still exist?

Re: Re: Re: Medieval Turks

As far as I know they are down. A pity, I would have liked to see their 1848 Italian Garibaldi figures too.

Vlad the impaler would really be an interesting subject.

cheers

Dear Uwe,

I think it won't take long before the Garibaldians will make their way to the shops.

1848 Italians Lucky toys

Interesting news and very welcome. On the other hand the price politic of Lucky-Toys would make me a poor man

Together with the new metals from Legio Heroica this is a start in a new period

cheers

Re: Medieval Turks

The only Lucky toys set I managed to get my hands on was there army of King Porus set. Lovely figures but not enough poses, although this is understandable when you put cavalry infantry elephant and chariot all in the one box.

Re: Re: Medieval Turks

Lucky Toys were/are a promising company, their Huns were criticised for accuracy by many but technically were very nice figures. Unfortuately, most of what they have done since - with the exception of the Indians - has been dogged by poor production standards. If they are still around I hope they recover form and do produce the promised sets. I would second late medieval/Renaissance Turks as the Ottomans were a really important military power and all we have at present is one, albeit lovely, set of Janissaries.

Re: Re: Re: Medieval Turks

Dear Graham,

Actually there are 2 sets of Janissaries although I admit that the Zvedza set is way too big. Also for Light Cavalry Types I also use the Mamlukes from Hat or Zvedza (again Zvedza too big and the only opponent to date the oversized Italeri Austrian Infantry).

Best regards,


Malcolm

Re: Re: Re: Re: Medieval Turks

Actually there is no set of Zvezda mamalukes, those big guys you mean are Italeri as well.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Medieval Turks

I have been waiting two years for the Vlad the impaler and Turks. I think if I ever want these figures Ill have to go metal....
