Re: Civilians and Prussian uhlans

Ye-her-hess! They are bloody rippers! Thank you Strelets.

So good to have that loooooong Napoleonic drought broken too.

Graham, it's a lovely touch, don't you think, the officer taking the wee bearn (his recently born son, perhaps?) to embrace him before heading off on campaign.

"Bairn", you Sassenach*.

In Lallans, we also say, "Wee'un" and "Wain" (that's more Glaswegian term).

No, I meant that he was *bearing* the child on his horse...

Bugger! When I typed it I did not think it looked right. Should have double-checked. These tight editorial deadlines you know...

Re: Doaty*

It looks to me like the officer is reaching for a drink from the comely lass lifting the
pitcher. Nice set.

Re: Doaty*

I thought the pitcher was a loaf, until I saw the box art and realised it was a baby. And I couldn't help noticing that the box art shows them wearing the czapska rather than the shako. Strange

Re: Civilians and Prussian uhlans

Marvellous figures, and very refreshing to have cavalry at ease - equally useful on the table-top for showing a cavalry unit in reserve, or in a diorama scene.

I'm guessing that the other civilian figures that we have seen as masters will appear as part of the Prussian Dragoon and Prussian Hussar sets when these appear.

I guess it can't be helped, but it also looks as if a bit of lance-straightening will be required for some of these uhlans once they are off the sprue. Depending on how soft and bendy the lances are, I may replace mine with plastic broom bristles and home-made pennons.

The un-needed flag bearer will be an easy conversion job to something more historically-accurate.

Great job!

Thats right !!!

And i love this set !!! :heart_eyes:

Re: Civilians and Prussian uhlans

May I add my kudos; a greatly welcome set and the civilians are just icing on the cake.

Re: Civilians and Prussian uhlans

This set looks swell, but where are the horses?? Are we supposed to steal them from other Strelets sets?

Re: Civilians and Prussian uhlans

They're stealth horses, can't you see them?

I thought the baby was a loaf of bread too. Fine figure either way and a very good looking set.

Well to be fair, I thought some of my new grand kids looked the same way too.......:laughing:

Re: Civilians and Prussian uhlans

I think the civilians from the same era are definite improvement although I would still like to see some military figure from the same era such as a foot officer, Infantry (light or line) soldier, artillery soldier or a Militiaman.
