Warlord Games has purchased Pro Gloria Miniatures. This will bring PGM’s Landsknechts miniatures into the Pike & Shotte world from WG, officially. Pro Gloria’s (former) owner, Stephan Huber’s reason for selling was that he wanted to see the line grow, but just wasn’t able to balance both his miniatures and his regular day job like he’d wanted. So he approached Warlord, who was more than happy to team up.
From the announcement:
Warlord Games are delighted to announce we have purchased Pro Gloria Miniatures and their superb range of 28mm Landsknecht figures.
Paul Sawyer of Warlord Games, says “Our Pike & Shotte game system is very dear to our hearts and we continue to expand our already comprehensive English Civil Wars and Thirty years Wars ranges. We have long wanted to add the legendary Landsknechts to our offer so when Stephan contacted us about taking his wonderful range on it was an easy decision! Stephan’s choice to come to Warlord Games with his ‘baby’ shows a great deal of confidence in what we’re doing here and we hope this won’t be the last range we bring into the Warlord fold. We are looking forward to making these beautiful models available soon and adding to the range in the near future”.
Stephan Huber, owner of Pro Gloria, says “I am very pleased Pro Gloria is now in such good hands. Between Pro Gloria and my full-time job I wasn’t able to give either the range or its many fans the attention they deserved so finding a good home for it became essential. Warlord Games have a proven track record for taking other ranges on to a different level so this will be great news for gamers and painters keen on this period of history. It was also very important to me that I could remain involved in the development of the range – I simply can’t get enough of 16th century Landsknechts!”.
Pike & Shotte is Warlord Games’ game system allowing players to fight massed battles across the tabletop – battles set during the period 1500-1700, both real or imagined.
We’d like to thank Stephan for offering us Pro Gloria and for agreeing to remain on hand to help us develop this range further with his passion and knowledge for this period of history.
