Masters of Gate and Defense Wall Completed

 

The models for the gate and defense wall have arrived and look great.  They will combine with the tower to help collectors recreate the imposing and famous walled city of Troy.  The top image shows the models with all of the poses from Figure Set 1 along with a mock-up of one of the chariots from Figure Set 2.  That set is currently in development for a 2016 release.

    Wow, Ken, the wall and gate sections look great!!!! The tower is spectacular and the figures are beautifully detailed and posed. Can’t wait for the city fortifications to come out. All these tasty goodies are a wonderful compliment to the new ancients products making their appearance in the marketplace in recent years provided by TSSD (Romans and barbarians) and Expeditionary Force (Classical Greece, Persians, and soon to be released Macedonians). How exciting to have this long neglected period so ably addressed. Thanks so much and cudos for such a great job!

      Good afternoon Dick …. Thanks for the message and compliments on the upcoming release! It is a good time for ancients and it looks like I, along with others, will keep new figures and sets coming out. The walls, gate, and tower will be available soon and the chariot set next year.

    The detail on the shields are amazing! Looking forward to painting them up. The Chariot looks great. Hopefully some character figures are in the pipeline!

    • Ken Ciak says:

      Hello Tom …. Thanks for the comments and please send over pictures once the figures are painted. I will put them on the site if you are inclined to share. A figure set with characters (Achilles, Ajax, Hector, Paris, etc.) is definitely in the pipeline.

    The wall and gate look great! A perfect fit for the tower and the toy soldiers, Ken! When can we expect this fortfication pieces to be available? And what about the chariot? Can’t wait for that either!
    Greetings from Brazil,

      Greetings Marcelo ~ Thank you for the message and feedback. The fortification pieces should be available within the next two months. We are working with the manufacturer on the project now. The chariots will included in the figure set 2 and that release is scheduled for next fall.

      Talk with you soon,

      Ken

        THanjs for the answer, Ken. I’m curious about the measurements (length x width x height) of the wall pieces. How much room will it take to display my figures?
        All the best,
        Marcelo

        • Ken Ciak says:

          Hello Marcelo ~ thank you for the response and question regarding the measurements of the wall fortifications. They will be good-sized pieces but modular so that some or all can be used to complete a diorama or display. The standalone tower will be 7*10*9.75″ and the defense wall will be 12*6.63*6.88″. There is a platform with the defense wall that starts at 4.5″ so the archers and Trojan defenders will be visible over the wall.

          The towers with the gate will detach and will, most likely, be the centerpiece of the display. The tower is 8*10*11.88″ and the gate is 7.5*4*6.88″.

          So a display with towers on each end, two defense walls, and two interior towers with a gate will measure 5 feet 1.5 inches in length! We will need to get you some more Trojans to defend the legendary ancient city 🙂

          Talk with you soon,

          Ken

    How many figures in the first set? How many different poses?

    • Ken Ciak says:

      Hello Ronald ~ Thanks for the message and questions. The figure set includes 16 figures with 8 unique poses. Each set has four Greek poses (tan) and four Trojan poses (blue). There are two of each pose in a figure bag.

    Ken,
    Congrats on the great new figures.
    I plan to use them for some 54mm Wargames as well as more figures for the grandkids.
    Looking forward to your other new items.
    Bill Hupp

    • Ken Ciak says:

      Hello Bill ….. Thanks for the message and kind words. I am glad you like the new figures. We are working hard on the second set which includes chariots as well as starting the third set. That set will include characters (heroes) from the Iliad.

      As always, please let me know if you need more figures for the grandkids or the 54mm Wargames 🙂

      Thanks again,

      Ken

  6. Ken: Congrats on your new toy soldiers! I love the first samples! In regards to this set, I’d love to see more action figures, including wounded and dead figures which many companies seem to always forget to make. When setting up a diorama with soldiers in hand to hand combat, it would make a scene more real with these poses. Command figures are also poses that should always be included. Hope to see a lot more of your product in the future!!! Bruce Perrone

    • Ken Ciak says:

      Hi Bruce ~ Thanks for the message and comments. I appreciate the enthusiastic response. I like your suggestions and agree that some wounded and dead figures add to the realism within the diorama. There will some room in the third set of ancients for command and/or casualty poses.

      Please keep the feedback and comments coming.

      Ken
