Welcome to the Strelets Forum.
Please feel free to discuss any aspect of 1/72 scale plastic figures, not simply Strelets.
If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
Hopefully Strelrts will kindly consider doing Hanover army which also participated in Waterloo. These armies from small countries help to have the whole jigsaw.
I am impressed, there are indeed wonderful figures .... but again with quite too short human arms, which is an unpleasant mistake. I hope it´s not too late for some corrections, sorry!
Yet another set of Brunswick with falling horsehair plumes - I do wish we could get them with line/light battalion shakos at some point.
And marching first - standing to attention leaves me a bit cold, sorry
These are Leib-Battalion.
I like them so much.
Ready to conscript some for my army.
These are the Leib-battalion, but as noted in the Osprey Men-at-Arms:
"A new Leib-Bataillon raised from a cadre of the old Black Band, and initially known as the Leichte-Bataillon von Prostler (the name of its commander); on 14th April 1815 this unit became the Leib-battalion"
They were brigaded with the light infantry battalions, as also noted in this book, on Cent-jours website, in Nafziger's list,... through to the innumerable books on the campaign, including Hussey's recent two-volume set.
So referring to them as light (leichte) and guards (leib) ain't wrong.:smiley: :wink:
I have used various British figures for several different armies, including Hanoverians and Portuguese. Of course, new poses and interpretations of existing poses are always welcome to add diversity to my formations, but I can see why specific sets of Hanoverians might be put off until other unique and unrepresented troops are presented. JMO.
Concur. I also had a look at the blog http://centjours.mont-saint-jean.com/unitesHA.php and I still don't see any critical differences but some headgear. So agree with you, some other belligerent could be more on the spotlight.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Very good looking figures, I love the sapper and the command figures will be useful. But standing to attention figures are not my favourite thing; if advancing figures for the line and light battalions were to appear sometime in the future that would be excellent.
