Would figure 1 (private charging) be wielding a pike?
Interesting on the comments on the pike carrying figure
I'm a wargamer - so if I needed pike carrying figures it's simple to chop off the musket and add a wire "pike"
[I do the same thing to generate standard bearers]
Personally the ADC & Generals are more use due to their distinctive hats [no pun intended]
As for the poor old nco - the marginal differences in uniform does not outweigh the benefits of the bicorne
What I do find surprising is that the old strelets, italieri [sp] and I think waterloo1815 sets of Generals seem to sell out really fast and yet very few folk seem to make them or bring them back into production
I guess it's all mathematics - how many boxes of generals would I need ... probably no more than 10 - I use them as mounted colonels mainly - remember I'm a gamer so strict accuracy is not always required - whereas line troopers I guess folk buy more
We shall have to wait and see how the poll & set turns out
For me I vote for :
1/ NCO (8)
2/ Aide de camp (with horse pleased) (6)
3/ officer (3)
4/ private (4)
5/ private (2)
6/ private (5)
7/ general (7)
8/ private with pike
General (but not Blucher - a more generic general please)
That's my vote. I do not need anothe random landwehr infantryman. I need lots of landwehr for wargames units, so one or two odd extra poses add nothing. But generals and aides can lead many a battalion, and can be head swapped onto the e siting Prussian officers
Thanks for asking
Well, there's already 48 privates in each box and I already have 3 Bluchers and a Gniesenau so my choices in order of preference are:
1. Officer in short jacket.
I am new to the forum but am interested in Prussian Napoleonic figures.
I would like to see a General and an ADC.
As a warmer having extra officers never goes amiss.
Dear Hat and Community,
I've accomplished my duty by acquiring four sets (two marching and two action. I hope to have been the one that triggered the process of approval and production of the set.
Best regards to you all.
It looks as if you may have been! Well done everyone!
Pose No 3 & 6
