Swiss pikes and command (burgundian wars)

A new range of 1/72nd figs.
So far there are 32 marching poses, 24 available from Germania Figuren

The rest of the figs can be seen here
Questions are, how many in a wargames pikeblock? (I like a large block, 40 plus figs but that´s just me.)and what material is best for wargamers?

wow.......1/72 plastics have come a long way since I had any, these are quiet nice. Are they the hard or soft plastic Paul ? If they're the soft, I wouldn't spend too much time painting them.

They will most probably be released in metal with a limited run in resin.
I agree with your statement that 1/72nd plastics have come a long way. I stopped collecting them in them in the early 80´s and didn´t have anything to do with models/painting etc until about 8 years or so ago... I bought on impulse a starter set of Uhruk hai in a supermarket, there were paints and a brush with the figs, but the paints and brush were rubbish. I thought back to my younger days and went off to the local hobby shop (now long gone) and I was amazed by the huge range of figs, all the types of troops I had wanted as a nipper. Since then with the help of the web I´ve found it´s gone a lot more proffessional than the Airfix/atlantic days...some of the sculpts are amazing.
