A forum to discuss HaT products, ETS, uniformology, modeling, painting, and other essentials associated with HaT products.
why not just do 1 sprue with 1 command set and crowdfund with folks in the crowd fund ordering mulitple sets (say min 4 per order) so that folks can riq out regiments and battalions without the extra figs.. i'd be in for about 12 sets of 1 sprue. If the crowdfunding pays it off offer a boxed set down the road with 4 sets of batt/reg command figure... there just ain't never enough standard bearers! lol!
I would be supportive of a dedicated command set, or a command/infantry mixed set.
There is a definite lac of higher command so if the crowdfunded command set could include a mounted officer of some description - an ADC uniform would be really valuable - then that would be extra valuable.
I by a lot of the various command sets when they are available -even the disastrous Italeri sets, but more so the W1815 set, the Italeri French set, the wonderful Zvezda se, and the HaT mounted officers set. In fact, I want another box of mounted officers - Bavarians, 1806 Prussians, Saxons, more Russians, French, British etc.
I use a lot of command stands, and having the al the same is dull, so I buy lot of boxes, and metal/resin as well.
Crowdfunding could be a way forward, although I appreciate it would take longer as the set would need to be designed, sculpted and then moulded.
I agree. Command set for 1815 is really need. As pre 1813 action set.
There are few sets without officers [HATs, ACtA, etc]
I'd vote with my wallet for the full set of French in greatcoats.
When it was announced in 1/72 I foolishly assumed it was to be the full set - including what is probably the best officer figure ever made.
The five sprue marching was probably a short-cut, but it is sad. Somehow I really doubt the rest will be made. Which is a shame, as I wanted them as elites for my "French young guard" (or as most of us seem to use them, French line infantry).. So I will have to continue to headswap shako heads onto Revell old guard.
Come on HaeT - make the rest of that set please...
