Re: Who has received the new boxes?

Prussian uhlans and Prussian dragoons and Prussian hussars, that's interesting. The dragoons especially, there is a need for a good set of dragoons. There's a need for uhlans in a different uniform too.

Re: Who has received the new boxes?

I was slightly confused by the eventual title of box 249. I hadn’t expected “Confederate Infantry In Defence”. Was expecting “Confederate Infantry Firing”. Ah well figures are fine.

Re: Who has received the new boxes?

Thanks to Ian and PSR we can already have a look at Strelets prolonged plans. :slightly_smiling_face: :+1:

PSR lists the latest announcements with the following serial numbers:
203 - Austrian Grenadiers Standing Order Arms
204 - Austrian Grenadiers Standing Shoulder Arms
221 - French Infantry in Summer Dress Standing Shoulder Arms
222 - French Infantry in Summer Dress Standing Order Arms
227 - Bavarian Infantry at Attack
228 - Prussian Uhlans
229 - Prussian Dragoons
245 - Finnish Anti-Tank Squad in Summer Dress
246 - Finnish Anti-Tank Squad in Winter Dress
247 - American Anti-Tank Squad
248 - Prussian Hussars
270 - Bavarian Infantry at Ease

In addition to previously announced sets, this is another extremely pleasing outlook on some very useful & long-desired subjects.
My favourites are:
- the WWII AT-squads
Hoping for a rich and action-heavy diversity from early makeshift-solutions like Molotov cocktails, AT-rifles & Geballte Ladung/satchel charges & sticky bombs to later Faustpatrone & Panzerfausts/Bazookas. Could also imagine this set concept for other nations & theatres, like Italian & DAK AT-squads in North Africa/the Mediterranean, Soviet & German sets for the eastern front (summer & winter) but also desperate Japanese AT-methods.
- Nap. Prussian cavalry
Together with their infantry comrades (& Russians and Austrians of course) these could finally be some appropriate figures needed to overcome Napoleons reign.
- Nap. Bavarian Infantry in attack
This and further sets could also easily outperform the weak earlier attempts from another manufacturer. Hoping for more sets regarding so-called "minor" belligerents, first of all Poles, Württembergers, Brunswickers and Bavarians.

Happy days! :smile:

How far has Pickett retreated?

How far has Pickett retreated?

According to ther PSR news page - future set 222 has been renamed "French Infantry in Summer Dress Standing Order Arms".

Has he left the field of conflict altogether?
