I think more for the WSS than most periods showing the uniform in the way of a painting guide is important, there is not a lot of information easily available for those who have a passing interest or are new to the period like myself. I am painting the French Pikemen at present , not touched the command figures for not knowing how to paint them. So the more information on the box the better.
Thats a good point Alan. Perhaps some evocative artwork on the front and a painting guide on the back?
Or if not a painting guide, a selection of online links to info on uniforms maybe?
Strelets/the sculptor presumably had resources they worked from?
If nothing on the box, what about a seperate page on the main website showing uniform resources?
