Welcome to Van Dyck Models & Figurines

War of the Spanish Succession

This range was originally planned for the second half of this year but I did have them on preview at "Tactica" in Hamburg. Wargames Illustrated, also present at "Tactica" came by our stand for some pictures and this way the news got out a bit sooner then expected.

Some information on the approach of this range.

Since the uniforms for this time period are so beautiful I really wanted to make miniatures that stood out accordingly. To increase their overall appeal and to make them look more dynamic I made seven figures in march attack, all with different heads, hair and slightly different poses. These seven different figures will serve as a basis for the other infantry troop types. For example, the first batch has a ventral ammunition pouch and can be used for French and Spanish infantry. The next will have their ammunition pouch on the right hip, grenadier versions will have different headgear, etc. This way I hope to cover most of the infantry uniforms in use during the war of the Spanish succession. Cavalry and artillery will be covered in the same way.

After all the core elements are present we can look if there are any gaps in the range that need additional figures.
