Don't know why, but I really love these guys...:lol:

 

I need to figure out a good way to give them all little moss hairdos.

And i wish they had done crew for the siege engines. ::(:

Does anybody make crew models that are sold separately?

Old Glory miniatures has some in their 'Hundred Years War' range, but they're 25mm, so maybe a little small.

Irregular Miniatures Co. (in UK) has a few, but there aren't a whole lot of pictures on the site, and they look a bit crude to me.

Front Rank figures has some crew in their War of the Roses line.

 

Those are some that I know, there may be more out there.

GW used to make a lot of war machines with crew figures; you'll need to scour Ebay and/or bits sites to try to find them.

Thank you for the ideas, Chaoswolf!     I don't know why I didn't think of GW! :blink:

I feel like most Peasant/Townsfolk ranges are gonna have a few pieces that look suitable for loading warmachines.  That does leave a lot of non-humans out, though.

  • You can use cannon crews for most of the stuff (cut of any fire)
  • The Assault Group has some seperate cannon crews, that could work. Even better you have a choice across historic time periods, nations and even some dwarves or halflings. (results of search "crew" on the home page).
  • Mantic sells sprues of skeleton, elf and dwarf crews.
  • Footsore miniatures has a trebuchet crew (for the really big trebuchet by Sarissa, so it has miniatures for people walking in hamster wheels).
  • Alternative Armies, sells crew (its an option on an artillery piece, you can sometimes choose which miniatures you want from a set), the ones I noticed was goblin knight crew. 
     
  • You can make your own, using some Perry Miniatures figures. (just cut an arm here and there. Due to having a hammer used for stakes, the english archers sprue may be a good idea. It is sold by itself on the Perry website).

      Anthropomorphic animals are not really my cup of tea, but these look nicely done.  I imagine someone here will be interested.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.

      DCC Dying Earth
       
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!
       





       
      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
       
       
      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.
