These were previewed a short while ago and we've got them into production moulds now, so here they are!  We've revamped the Jagers and Grenzers for our 1860 Austrians, which brings that whole range up to par now with our recent sculpts.

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

Very nice, you guys have been busy with releases :)

I'm sure FSN, in particular, will love the poses ;)

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!  :-q

.... otherwise ..... great!  :-bd  :P
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

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.
