Falcata - Relaunch

Today I received an email from a Madrid model shop, La Flecha Negra, who have been keeping me posted on progress with the long awaited reappearance of Falcata's 20mm white metal figures.

I emphasise that I have nothing to do with any of this - I am merely bringing the note to the attention of anyone who is interested in the range. The pictures at the top of this post are of rather poor quality, and show some factory painted pre-launch samples - these pictures did not form part of today's email.

What follows is the main content of the email, with some slight correction of typos and translation here and there. La Flecha Negra's website has not yet been updated to show any of this. Please don't direct any questions to me - the shop will be able to help you and, I believe, supply you with figures.

The email:

This is the 1st list of Falcata 20mm napoleonics.
The bags are incl x12 soldiers in different poses, cast in white metal.
The prices are 9,50 euros per bag, 10 or more [bags] 9 euros each.

  1. Splendid news - I got an email myself the other day. I'd be interested to find out how many cavalry figures you get per bag.

  2. Exciting news!

    I'll definitely check out their light infantry and cavalry.

  3. Hi Tony - I'm sure you will have covered this somewhere else but how are these figs as a match for Hinton Hunt?


  4. Ian - a couple of people have asked this - I'll do a short supplementary post...
