As I am sure your aware Strelets figures in general have always been a different style to other figures when compared, a little chunkier especially heads and weapons and do not blend in well with the other manufacturers, the latest marching sets do appear to be a lot closer match to other figures and still retain excellent facial detail, I am very optimistic these will be as good if not better then the best manufacturers.
You must have read my mind when you suggested Austrian Infantry in Hungarian uniform (with shako), I have been waiting for a good time to ask Strelets for this very much neglected Napoleonic Army, Hat have some nice Masters of Austrian Infantry in German uniform and there is renewed hope these will at last be made, but nothing for the Hungarian style Austrians.
Thanks for your kind answer. Pending the production of decent plastic Hungarian -Austrians in 1:72 scale, have you any suggestion about other manufacturers making such a subject (even in white metal) for an accetable price?
For cost effective plastic figures there is HaT Austrian Line Infantry they need modification to gaiters or Hat Austrian Grenzers they have no rear peak on shako and both sets are hard to find at the moment.
For more expensive Metal figures Art Miniaturen I have never bought from them and I don't know how they look compared to plastic figures, I would be interested to hear of anyone's experience of buying from them, but I think the best thing to do might be to encourage and wait to see if Strelets make some.
