I want them really bad. I wouldn't mind getting mixed command sets with, for instance 6 mounted and 6 dismounted figures with standing/resting horses. In real life, leaders would never be too far away from their horses anyway.
the aspects you`re pointing out - that`s exactly what Strelets offers:
01 - The French Army's Camp
02 - Russian and Prussian Chiefs of Staff
11 - Allied Chiefs of Staff
13 - Napoleon's General Staff
46 - Union General Staff
51 - Russian General Staff and Hospital
... all these sets contain lots of different figures depicting NCOs, musicans, injured soldiers, "camp life situations" ...
I see these figures as a kind of great "bonus" to the original subject, which could be indeed a collection of old generals standing around (in the worst case).
I`m very happy with my boxes of Napoleonic-Staffs anyway!
47 - Confederate General Staff
48 - Napoleon's General Staff
80 - Union General Staff
... are all mounted sets, so reduced in poses. That`s why these sets just contain what the you call a bunch of "generals". BTW it´s always a good mix of ranks & poses. The titles of these 3 sets promise General Staffs and that`s exactly what we get!
