Re: Re: British Hussars CRITIQUE

Hi Dave,
I tend to agree that some of the poses can be restricted because of the limitations of the manufacturing process.
But as you say, Strelets figures are made of that great soft plastic that can be very malleable when heated in hot water.
This means some of those side-on poses, or straight arm poses can be animated to different, or more interesting angles - eg I would give the horseback shooter a slight twist at the waist and bingo he shoots at the 45 degrees rather than side-on.
So in essence it doesnt worry me if the poses from set to set only slighty vary, although point taken about more pistol shooters, and on foot poses.

Re: British Hussars CRITIQUE

Hussars, as light cavalry, were supposed to be able to skirmish, so using their carbines is an essential pose. No good for a charge, but remember there was more to the war than the charge.
