Great figures - just what I have been waiting for.
Good to see so many decent length frock-coats.
I can see lots of uses for these figures.
Not my period at all but just looking at the sculpting there's some very nice anatomatical proportions on show but on the other hand a hint in several figures of the return of the bow-legged, rickety stances that marred many of the older sets.
On the subject of fixed bayonets on the firing line: it was common enough for units to fix bayonets, move forward and engage successfully, and then find themselves functioning as the new firing line. They did not then unfix bayonets before firing. This happened more than once with Federal regiments at the Angle during Pickett's Charge (and I'm imagining the Union firing line as intended to be receiving that charge). So either fixed or unfixed bayonets could be fine for a firing line at Gettysburg.
I also think the frock coats make them look a bit odd, I will buy some sets nevertheless because of the reloading poses, hard to find good reloaders in other sets.
Joining in the 'hurrah'. Lovely figures and beaut variety, as ever from Strelets!
