This batch includes the previously shown Son's of Siegward by Sjoerd Trouwee and then the new warriors with guns but also an alternative musician by John Pickford.
First, is the new drummer. This piece is a re-mastered version of the first one, but the overall appearance is much changed and only the basic armour is still the same.
I Think, John did a magnificent job on the conversion and I'm really looking forward getting a metal version of this on here.
The next 4 miniatures are replacements for the current Grenadiers. The Grenadiers have served their time and will be replaced by proper Pickford ones.
The set is a rework of the three existing Crossbowmen - but also a completely new fourth sculpt. The gunners will re-use the swappable Sallet/helmet system found on the Crossbowmen. Here's the 3 new headless gunner-poses:

As said, the will re-use the swappable helmet system, but for adding more variety no more that 12 new helmets have been made.
And with the 6 already made for the Crossbowmen I now have 18 helmets to choose from.
Non of the existing Crossbowmen were really suited for an aiming pose, so we decided a dedicated sculpt was needed. Due to his pose its a single piece sculpt.

To make of for the lack of swappable helmet he'll come with a few visors.
Actually, these visors will also work rather well on the new drummer, I think.
