Re: British Infantry in Attack - Command group

Exciting days ahead for Nap fans, the British Attack Command Group images have been up for a week or so & I agree the figures do look nice. My minor concern is that proportionally the blade of the British Officers sword seems somewhat slightly broad/wide in width. So I hope Strelets could refine the officer sword for this set and future Nap sets.

For more good news on the Nap front check out the British Marching set - Box art and sprue images.

Strelets I wish you every success with these upcoming sets - I am sure they will do well and become highly popular sets. I very much look forward to these sets and what you have install for future Nap projects.
(the depths of the chambers are deep, the vaults are yet to reveal more of their secrets...)

Best Regards

Let the imagination and creativity know no bounds
Let artistic talent and flair flourish without constraint
May this adventure you Strelets are taking us upon continue to awe inspire, excite and captivate

The beginnings of something special...

Re: British Infantry in Attack - Command group


BTW, I enjoyed reading your comments below about your movie and book experiences with your Dad.

Kindest regards - GC

Thanks GC. One of the things I like about this hobby is that it does help to keep happy memories of my parents (now both passed) alive, as they always endeavoured to buy with their limited financial means those things (military books, soldiers, models etc) that they knew that I liked. And then there were movies. Just like Waterloo, we shared many a session together at the cinema, and I always loved that my dad had a very broad historical knowledge and always seemed to know something about everything I saw in books, or enquired about relating to battles or soldiers.

I am guessing that for many older collectors/gamers/painters etc we all have some form of special emotional attachment to particular aspects of this hobby, whether it be to books, movies, early figure collections or fun times with family.


Re: British Infantry in Attack - Command group

Love the animated pose on that pioneer. These figures are usually standing or marching fairly sedately but this guy looks like he's thinking "I'm going to turn that chemin de-frise into toothpicks!". The command figures in all of these recent sets look good.

Re: British Infantry in Attack - Command group

Ditto Graeme the pioneer/s is superb, and I would buy the set for that figure alone
