Pro Gloria Plastic Landsknechts! You Know You Want To....
Pro Gloria's Indiegogo campaign to fund a box of plastic Landsknechts is ticking along pretty well, with over 12.000 Euros of the 30.000 target raised and 24 more days to go. If you haven't seen these already, check them out - the greens look stunning.
Imagine, if you will, a mass of these guys tramping across your tabletop in their wonderful gaudy costumes. And think of how with the money you save buying them in plastic you can support them with lovely metal figures from the likes of Artizan. Personally, the moment they get funded I will be buying a bunch of gendarmes and archers from Eureka.
I'm pretty keen for this to get funding, so hopefully I've caught some of you in a weak moment. Here are four steps to a wonderful weekend.
1. Play some loud 'Landsknechty' music. In Extremo will put you in the mood, but basically anything that implausibly blends metal and medieval with some growly German vocals will do fine.
2. Drink some German bier.
3. Find your credit card.
4. Look at all the shiny things! You want them!
