I love this range!  Delicate and intricate yet realistic sculpting that lends a degree of grace to this era of rapid paced tactical evolution.  The only thing missing is tricorne troops!  Nations quickly adopted tricornes through the 1690s.  Musketeers in tricorne, with cartridge pouch, and fusil (flintlock) not 12 apostles would be great.  Then, some pikemen and cavalry.  They would be very universal.

I think it depends On which army you intend to build on both counts.

Welcome to the forum and I agree that the range is superb.

Welcome!

The Malburian and Great Nothern War ranges have Tricorns aplenty and might fit that 1690s/1700s+ period you're looking for:

Correct, but I think these ranges are not in the same sculpting style and therefore poor fits with the LoA range; especially the horses with cavalry.

I don't mix them in the same unit/on the same base, but they do look decent on tale together.

In fact my LoA Confederates are pretty much entirely LoA figures and often fight my WSS French, in any time period from 1680's to 1715 Cheesy

Which I now will get people frothing about it being the same as using WW1 infantry against WW2 infantry etc, but hey. If the LoA range was available when I started the WSS I'd probably have just done LoA instead Cheesy

No frothing from me. While I like things to be correct, a unit on the table is whatever my opponent says it is. At club we have had Bren carriers masquerading as Matilda 2's, Napoleonic Austrians standing in for Russian when someone brought the wrong box of figures.

I would challenge any "expert" to pick out the differences of a WW1 figure in a greatcoat from a similarly dressed WW2 figure at 200 yards, which is probably the minimum if the scale of the figure is taken into account

Pretty much my thoughts, though I might try and proxy a tank with a tank unless I was well pushed Cheesy

One thing I often say when people are complaining about small differences on figures is the same - when someones shooting at you and the shells are flying, one X looks very like another X no matter what they're wearing. Came up in a discussion on "what should my WW2 Hungarians look like and can I paint close ish German figures in a browner colour?". Whadda ya think MINE are repuprosed from Cheesy

While I see no problem with using figures as proxies it seems very reasonable to complete a figure as intended, doing it as well and as accurately as one can. Otherwise one might as well be using Kriegsspiel blocks, quicker and easier to get to the table and universally applicable.

We were playing a Chain of Command league at club and were trying to get everyone involved as cliques had started to form. Consequently we had players putting their platoons and support together while the league was running. They wanted to actually use the stuff hey had just painted. So things like Bren carriers proxied for Matildas happened.

People can, of course, do pretty much as they please but I agree with you.  If the game is the be-all and end-all, then I can see why it might be done, but, for me, the game is just part of the entire wargaming experience.  I would find using Carriers for Matildas something which would detract entirely from the illusion and deeply unsatisfying.  Not much point Pendraken producing 16 versions of the Sherman, it would seem.
