This is a great range, but sadly in need of some generals. How long before they are available? I see there was a thread in the summer and they were said to be on the way, but still no sign.

The generals are all complete and with the sculptor at the moment while he finished off the Dragoons as well.  I'm hoping we'll have them here before the end of the year hopefully.

These figures generally great epically the more recent additions, however I've a few little issues.
1. Foot command groups have one ensign, the flags you supply generally have two flags per regiment. Is it possible to (a) have two ensigns in the group, this would meen losing one of the existing figures and creating a new mold, I don't know how thes things are done. Or ( b) offer a separate packs of say half a dozen each of the standing and advancing figures.
2. The little pack of the dismounted generals, nice but why only one empty horse between the three of them, the mold for the horse must exist and it wouldn't add much to the cost of the pack to supply a horse each.
3. Dragoons come fifteen to a pack with three command figures when mounted and thirty to a dismounted pack with three command figures. Make it six and offer dismounted horses and holders.
4. Artillery limbers plus walking crew. I like guns to exist in two states, moving and deployed.
Got all that off my chest, thanks

I use a pikeman and a cut down pike for the 2nd flag bearer, adds to the variety

If I might answer that question, it is because they use the coach.

I don't think we'd be looking to remould anything at this point, but we can always supply extra standards if you need them.

They were sculpted as a group with only one horse (and one guy holding it), more like a little vignette group.  All four pieces are in the same mould, so whilst we can supply extra horses, it's not efficient as we'd be throwing away 3 foot figures for every extra horse.

We can supply extra command with the dismounted, just let us know when you order.  For horses we've got a variety of artillery horses and such that we can supply, but there aren't any horse holders currently.  You could use one of the artillerymen, either the chap on the left or the ramrod guy with his rod clipped off:

We've got various limbers we can supply, we can check on which one's the best option from the SYW range.  I'll add walking crew to the requests lists.

Thanks for the replies, I had a look online at the syw range for limbers, sadly no photos. I confess I was tempted into league of Augsburg by the pictures of the painted figures on the site. It's the drool factor that makes many of us buy more then we can ever hope to complete and the better the photos the more lead that is shifted

Leman

Cat and pigeons come to mind, so here's my three'appence. The Prussian SYW limbers are simple open framed triangular wheeled vehicles with four horses. If you ask Leon he will do you a deal just to buy limbers. This is what they look like:



Irregular Miniatures do a two horse in tandem limber, with a rider in tricorn on the lead horse who can be painted up as a civilian. The SYW Austrian limbers have a chest on the limber, so are probably too late for the LOA.
