I have just desprued some of the Unmarried Zulu warriors I got from HaT as part of their Crowd funded sets. I ordered 3 boxes, and I must say these are great all in all. I was a bit worried at the time that they would be more flat than they seemed, because the original masters had to be made less animated. So I asked for some sprues of the original which they at the time had offered to crowdfunders. I was probably one of the last to get some, and they arrived quite a bit later than the others, but, they too seem like great figures. A bit more assembly, but definitely good figures, and I am thankful that HaT sent them to me.
Just wanted to spread a bit of joy about an excellent experience with HaT.
If I might add my thanks and kudos as a primarily Napoleonic (well, 18th & 19th C) collector. The recent outpouring of sets from HaT and others has been a boon to my collecting. I had considered just backing out of 1/72 as my eyes age and painting the little guys gets more challenging but the recent flood of great sets has (in the words of Michael Corleone) dragged me back in. The Marching sets have filled a gap I noticed in my Napoleonic ranks. I have plenty of firing poses and figures collected over the years, even though some are showing their age when placed beside newer offerings. But I've often wished I had more guys and formations doing what the average soldier did through the Napoleonic era (and through the ages) - marching from Point A to Point B and then standing around waiting to be ordered to move again. Your recent marching sets have filled those gaps admirably. Many thanks.
I look forward to the future offerings - even as I wear myself out trying to catch up on the cases of figures I have waiting. LOL.
Thanks again, HaT - giving credit where credit is due.
As a fellow Napoleonic collector I agree that the large amount of Napoleonic sets released was great I bought a few sets I had not seen for years but problem is where do you start choosing witch to paint first. Compounding the problem other makers of plastic soldiers have also been releasing lots of new sets of nappy figures as well I have no chance of getting my stash under control& looking at forthcoming releases its going to get even worse
