This looks like very good sculpting work.
Well done.
I especially like the variation in walking legs of the grenadiers.

The width of this face is a little bit narrow compared to his legs but physiologically it is not impossible.

Thank you for appreciation and opinions

the Russians advancing sets will be available soon in the market (they have been sculpted month before marcing sets in photos). I hope the marcing sets will be ready by the end of the year with the Syw Prussians fireline

For marcing sets The poses will be about 6 but proposed in all possible uniformology variations (infantry summer uniforms-only waistcoat- and normal green uniform with and without bags-, grenadiers in green uniforms and summer uniforms)

We'll insert some separate heads in the grenadiers sets with the typical Russian variant of the Grenadier Hat (with scabbards in pewter for summer uniforms and pewter muskets)

@Mr.Cryns in Your opinion the legs are they too big compared to the face? In this case I can thin them

I hope that when they will be produced in the market many are painted and maybe photographed and published on Benno :mrgreen:

For every ideas and suggestions about the sets you can write me

Thanks for posting new poses.They are great ! It would be fantasting to see firing and loading poses as well.It is going to be great set beacuse this subject (SYW Russians ) has no representation in 1/72 scale.Thank you so much for making these figures !

First of all I have to tell you I agree with Michel when he wrote:

No the legs are not too big. The legs are fine.
Only that one single face is very slim / tight / narrow.
The faces of the grenadiers are wider / broader / rounder so look more healthy.

I think the one with the narrow face hasn't had lunch for a while. ;-) Other than that he reminds me of Baron von Münchhausen.

The Russians are not the only news for Germania figuren Syw range. For those who can go to Kulmbach in these days can already see the Austrian Hussars Syw ,Austrian artillery crew with variety of guns and new Prussians Fireline-command standing ( with the true uniforms of the 1756)

Also I am a fan of the period and I tried to sculpt what I wanted to see realized (I have a lot of ideas in my mind what I would to sculpt But the problem is the time also to sculpt and production, Also hoping that there is a good feedback on the market)

Hi,
First russians advancing are ready in stock in the website of Germania figuren
http://germania-figuren.com/gx2/1-72-Resinfiguren/1-72-Germania-Figuren/Siebenjaehriger-Krieg-355/Russland---Start-2016/

By the end of the year I think they will be ready also marching figures
Here's a small example (one of 21 figures), The photo of the resin test casting to see details (I tried to sculpt the mitre with grenadiers decoration for ex.)
