A side note on those big box sets

I personally do not care for the big box sets. The reason is they are very expensive with only one new sprue added. And invariably, that one sprue has something I want, but I am not going to spend $30 or so dollars to get one little figure. I always wanted that little Crimean War guy with the camera but it came only in the big charge of the heavy dragoons or something, same thing with the little Crimean War news reporter writing on paper that came in the Sevastopol set. I wanted them both for Civil War or Old West uses, but I didn't want to buy the huge sets for just them. I also had to pass on the women in the Court of Peter the Great and the partiers in the Medieval Britain.

I wish there was a way that one could get just the one sprue, or maybe make a box set someday of just the single sprues togather in their OWN box set.

You know, as a side note, I really wish you made a set containing every female figure you made from ancient Rome through WWII. Just a set with all those women. Before you think me a pervert, let me explain. I don't buy anything but US History related sets. Some of the Roman woman make good native or certain period peasant women. And the court figures could also find their way into civilian masses through Colonial or Civil War US History. I always need civilians to add to my eras, not just soldiers.I realize it is impossible with the way you mold to just take a random 'cavity' from each mold to make a larger mold, but I wish a set with just civilians throughout history was an option.
