I agree James. The glossy toy soldier look always makes for some incredibly attractive figures, but I can never make up my mind whether I’d have this look or a more realistic matte finish. Either way, these Bavarians look beautiful!
On a completely unrelated topic, I was perusing around the pages of different sets and was looking at the four models of mortars that are provided in RedBox's 72070 "Turkish Siege Artillery Mortar" set. I was wondering if, provided roughly suitable crewmembers could be found, would these mortars be more or less valid as generics for most 16th-18th Century factions or are they too distinctive for that? I am not an expert in this era. Say, for instance, the WoSS artillery crews were taken off their guns and put onto these mortars, would that be valid?
