Medieval Tax collectors and Handworkers

Both sets from Hecker & Goros. If anything..it´s worth going to their site and looking at thier paintjobs and thier dio collection.
With this lot finished, for Michele from Michigentile´s Microworld Blog, they can now be packaged up and start thier long journey to Michele :-D
The handworkers set.
The tax collectors set.
I´ve just found this site...chock full of info about the middle ages....!!!!!

  2. Neat stuff and more and more convinced to get something like this... Well my medieval 'project' (more like an idea yet) will need some civilians as well and this range looks especially nice!

    1. Thanks Andrew.
      Seeing as most of medieval society was based on the poor old peasants, as much as 90% were peasants, who would at certain points take up arms (or be told to do so) civilian figs are a necessary part of any medieval collection, I mean..it wasn´t always 2 colourfull armies bashing into each other off and on, most of the warfare was conducted against the civilian population and they did fight back. Virtually every town / city had it´s miltias who were from day to day just workers.
      Cheers

  4. They are great!

    I'm so jealous of the figures that are coming out in 20mm, there seems a much better availability of civilians in that scale, than in 28mm.

    Cheers, Simon

      There are lots of civvies in 1/72nd available now..and loads more coming..especially in the medieval and roman periods, the new roman sets from Strelets..the spartacus set 2 is a good one and thier crusaders on the march sets, quite a few new civilians there as well.. Not so many civilians elsewhere, period wise, not in plastic anyway, but it´s increasing.
