Good to see further progress however I do have some concerns on the Heavy Dragoons weapons the swords all seem a little short as does the spare arm carrying the musketoon hopefully this can be rectified.
They look fine, though I don't know why but I've always preferred the models to be inside of a rectangular frame, rather than the offshoots from a central spine. It just looks untidy and I never get the feeling the models are safe in their boxes (though with such soft plastics that's an unfounded fear).
I've more than enough French, Swedish and Nassau troops to busy myself with that I'm not fussed on getting British units, so this set doesn't affect me. But they look great. Well done.
The swords on the Heavies are too short! This has been noted for many weeks now, I wonder if HäT will make a comment? Will this problem be resolved? If not, then these otherwise fine figures will not find their way onto my want list!
Thanks Forum Admin, it's good to know that the short swords/swagger sticks currently carried by these gentleman will be addressed and, we hope, rectified. The swords need to be twice as long as they are in these test shots, slightly broader as well.
In their present state these heavy cavalrymen look less than threatening...indeed, were I a 1/72 French fusilier facing them, I wouldn't be at all scared! The worst I could expect would be for my shako to be knocked off with one of those 2 foot swagger sticks. Humiliating perhaps, but not dangerous.
You mention that other issues will be 'addresses' (I take this to mean 'addressed') as well. Are you able to advise what these issues are?
This set has the potential to be one of the best sets of British/KGL Napoleonic cavalry around in 1/72. However, it's important to get these issues sorted before they go to production.
