Martin Schwartz

Martin Schwartz was a mercenary from Germany who was brought to fight for the Yorkist cause against Henry VII at the battle of Stoke Field, the last battle of the Wars of the Roses.


This model of him was given away free to attendees of the Partizan show in Newark in 2013. I bought mine from eBay last year sometime.


I wanted to practice my Non-Metallic Metal technique on more than just the odd sword and I'm pretty pleased with how he came out.


I don't know who sculpted or manufactured the figure in afraid, but they do come up on eBay from time to time.

  1. Excellent looking figure. Didn't even notice the Non-Metallic Metal, very effective results.

  2. Thank you both. I'm really not sure whether armour would have been as shiny as that but it will look dramatic on the table!

  3. I think good old Martin would be quite chuffed with how you've immortalised him :)

    Great NMM effect!
