Re: WSS French artillery

A really good surprise for a Monday!

This looks like a good set of artillery, good poses and very good sculpting. Both guns are clearly light/battalion pieces, and as such are suitable to deploy alongside infantry in the front line rather than in a supporting 'grand battery'. Indeed, the smaller of the two guns is very light by the looks of things, perhaps only 2 or 3 pounder.

It will certainly be interesting to see the sprue and box contents (number of guns and gunners) for this set.

I am now anticipating a very interesting and satisfying release of several great WoSS sets sometime in the next few months!

Bravo, bravo, bravo!
Cheers.

Re: WSS French artillery

That may be the second set of the WSS that I buy, superb.

Re: WSS French artillery

Dear Strelets,

I apologise in advance as this is one of these 'greedy' comments that greets the release of a fine set (as this is).

I hope that your production for the War of Spanish Succession will soon extend to Hapsburg and Imperial troops. I'd love some for Eugene's eastern campaigns, but I am sure that others would like to have them for the major and sustained role that they played on the Rhine and in Italy (and Spain).

(Then there are the Hungarian Independence (or rebel, depending on whose slant you take) forces, but now I am getting really, really greedy!)

A set of cuirassiers would be a fabulous first offering.

Regards, James

I'd support this 100%; especially a set of cuirassiers!

Re: WSS French artillery

WOW!!!! absolutely superb sculpts, my compliments on them, the big question is when these and the other WSS cavalry sets will be available in UK, Cuirassiers ideal for Imperial and Bavaria in either pot helmets or tricornes, also hopefully a set of command/personalities like Strelets have done for other periods, again wonderful figures can't wait to get a few sets
you all stay safe out there
cheers Old John

Re: WSS French artillery

This WSS thing has begun as a light rain and seems to becoming a heavy storm. Really like it!!!

Re: WSS French artillery

Not a period I’m interested in, but they do look very good.

Re: WSS French artillery

Dear John,

In case you missed the comment, or the detail of the previously posted masters (as Mark and I did), Strelets has pointed to some in production in the thread below entitled "Re: PSR review of British Cavalry (WoSS) Set 238".

It will be interesting to see whether lobster pots will be included, or they'll come later. Mind you, Mugnai in "Wars And Soldiers In The Early Reign Of Louis XIV Volume 2: The Imperial Army, 1657-1687" attests that they were not as ubiquitous as is often portrayed (at least in that earlier period), with hats often worn.

Regards, James

Re: WSS French artillery

Re: WSS French artillery
