But we still need Hussars with shako for 1859, 1864 and many units in 1866.

Cheek!

I know there was a time before tanks. It's called "fantasy".

Actually, the last 3 books I bought on Amazon were "A history of the Campaign of 1866 in Italy", "The Contribution of the Royal Bavarian Army to the War of 1866" and "The Organisation of German State Forces in 1866".


All 3 on the Kindle for about 6!

Agree. Not a fan of the "kneeling" pose in this scale, either. As for the "skating with one leg in the air" pose, this should be banned!  Thumbs down

 .... otherwise ..... great!  Thumbs up  Tongue

Well, two things:

1. FSN - good to see that there is something that stirs you in the C19th. There were still Austrian hussar units in the shako in 1866, so that would be a useful figure for you.

2. Westmarcher - the original skating on one leg poses from the 90s were pretty grim, but I rather like this new one as it has a light infantry dynamic that marks it out from the normal line infantry. I also like kneeling poses as a varied firing line can be achieved, or a skirmisher can be situated behind a rock, bush or bit of wall. I think these kinds of poses are great for the C19th when troops began increasingly to shake out into a more open order, whereas the infantry line in one pose looks much better in the C18th.

Kneeling pose good for 'distressed' stands.
