Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Highlanders look interesting, but for what era are they intended? Not the Crimea again I hope?

If Napoleonic they seem really nice figures! Could this be the start of my much requested "in square" sets??!! The highlanders already had a set "in square" out anyway (by Waterloo 1815), but this will add to that set nicely.😀

What I would really look forward to seeing is some British/KGL line in square/defense in similar poses to these fellows!!! No forage caps though please Strelets!! All nicely done Belgic Shakos please!!
Really need a set like that when you think of all the non-kilted redcoats that had form square at Waterloo.
Make that set really nicely & I will forgive you for the poor British firing line & the horses!!!!😁😂
Brunswick Infantry need a good defensive/in square set too!! 😉

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

I am ready for a charge Better watch out for those amazing bayonets though.:laughing:

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Napoleonics, you ripper!

Even though they are yet more Scots, they are so beautifully sculpted that they'll get added to the collection.

Cheers Strelets,

James

p.s. We won't let you get away with another blank Monday though... haha!

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Well, I would assume these are Napoleonic Highlanders, probably, indeed, intended for a square.

The illustration below I assume is the box art for WoSS Set 253 French Dragoons in Attack.

If that means the latter are on their way, that is very good news. It's great artwork.

Indeed, these look like Napoleonic Highlanders 'in defence' to me as well. Hopefully these will not be marketed as 'Thin Red Line' Crimean War Highlanders though; but certainly useful for creating a square for the later Napoleonic/Hundred Days period.

The box art for the French Dragoons in Attack looks strikingly good. Well done again to the artist!

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Not the least deserty, not looking.

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Ah Alan, I already had a "deserty" item today!

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire MK356 in its current 92sqn North Africa colours flew over earlier!!

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Wow ! we had the Red arrows a few weeks back go over and a few years ago a DC-3 Dakota in D-Day stripes flew over very low , part of the 101st Airborne flew from the airfield at the end of the village for D-DAY and Market garden. The fly over was tagged on with Yeovilton air day.

Fair cop....I will take a peek...:smiley:

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

I will add these to the Highlanders in square I already have. By the time you're through my Highlanders will be 1:1.

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

I do like the highlanders but i find them very hard to paint it takes me months to finish a box & I still have the last two highlanders sets from strelets to start as well I am going to busy:grimacing:

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Or Byzanty. Already looked but won't look again.

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Dear Steve H,

Shall we aggravate the situation?:sunglasses:

Best regards,

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

O my more heads to cut of and replace with a bonnet head, i do hate those forage caps.

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Thanks for the pic's Mr strelets bring them Jocks on I am ready for them now.:grimacing:

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Yes I too want to see an end to this business of forage caps. If the sculptor wants to do some, make them as spare heads on a sprue.

Re: Are you ready for a charge?

Nice figures again!

Hope to see their British/KGL infantry comrades in a similar set soon!!
