Your favourite figure: a poll (or in my case, a Pole)

A012 9.2" British howitzer.

There are two figures that standout - but as instructed I would go for the staff officer. For some reason the figure reminds me of General Melchett from black adder. (the other figure i love looks like Baldrick!). I like the way his coat is blowing in the wind.

I do like your second picture in particular of the 8" howitzer with the gunners in trench coats.

My favorite poses are kneeling firing with bayonet attached.
So the one I pick is the Japanese soldier from the in attack set.

My favourite figure is the officer in the Highlanders at ease set just one look at him and you know that he is in charge.

Good question, well framed and I'll stick to sets I actually have rather than figures I've seen on PSR that look far better but I don't have any period interest in (cough-WSS-cough).

The recent Boer infantry set has loads of great sculpts with so many versatile uses with only a couple of bum notes. A theme of irregulars cautiously advancing and firing. Looking at PSR and the figures themselves it comes down to the 2 figures advancing, head down, on the bottom row and my choice is the middle one cycling his rifle-bolt.

(Of course I won't mention some other favourites from the War of 1812 American Militia and Tecumseh sets as well as WW1 Russian Winter Uniform and RCW Red Army Infantry both winter and summer)
