Warlord Games purchases Pro Gloria Miniatures

Warlord Games has purchased Pro Gloria Miniatures. This will bring PGM’s Landsknechts miniatures into the Pike & Shotte world from WG, officially.

They were formed into a 20-strong Corps of Sergeants-at-Arms by King Edward I in 1278, as a mounted close escort. In 1399 King Richard II limited the corps to 30 Sergeants, and King Charles II had 16. During 13th century most European Kings likewise established bodies of sergeant at arms. They carried a mace bearing the royal arms as a symbol of office but their armament included a crossbow as well as a short lance and a shield.

This box enables you to build up to 12 mounted sergeant at arms of the 12th/13th century. Several weapon options like spears, swords, axes, maces and crossbows are included.

Baueda has some new 15mm Breton Cavalry models available now in their webstore.

From the release:

The “Armorican” peninsula came to be settled with Britons from Britain during the
poorly documented period of the 5th-7th centuries. When Vikings or Northmen settled
in the area in the ninth and early tenth centuries these regions came to be known as
Normandy and the name Armorica fell out of use. Western Armorica eventually evolved
into Brittany, while the east became the Breton March under a Frankish marquis. The
native Armoric Breton were skilled horsemen and their standard weapon was the
javelin, which they continued to use well after neighbouring Nortmans and French
took to charging with the lance.

The new cavalry pack can be used for roughly 600-1100 AD in several armies of the
area as native Breton cavalry was often employed as mercenary.
