War of the Spanish Succession future sets?

Greetings Stretlets......and bravo! I can't believe the masters you have shared in the time since I asked about whether you were planning a possible Maison Du Roi set. They are all small works of art. So will that single British set of cavalry get any help against this small army of French horsemen? Also, it would be nice to get a few more peeks of the artillery figures for this series. Thank you for creating such a large collection of figures for this period. Can hardy wait to add them to my collection.

The British can definitely use some help from some Imperial Cuirassiers in lobster-tail helmets and elk-skin coats. Maybe a set of British dragoons with their carbines would be good too, though the mitre caps were a post-war feature.

Despite there now being four Maison du Roi sets for the French, the most pressing need is for a further French set of Line cavalry.

A set of Dutch or Danish Horse would be very welcome allies-in-plastic for the British cavalry set.

French dragoons (mounted and dismounted) would also be very useful.

The Imperial (Austrian) cuirassiers would be perfectly good as Bavarian cuirassiers as well, and would make a very impressive set of figures.

That is a great list Sansovino!

Maybe a new sequence of numbers is required in the Strelets catalogue, to accommodate these?

Have a good weekend.:smile:

What about commanders? Prince Eugen is worth a lot! OK, Malborough is fine also.

Please do not focus on Blenheim solely. There was a lot more elsewhere.

Correct!

I don't think Strelets are concentrating just on Blenheim, and there certainly is more elsewhere.

It's good to see that all of the cavalry sets we have so far seen feature an officer in a wig who, in all cases, would make a very good senior officer/commander figure.
