The officer aiming is really a good idea.

So the parrot rifles are done, here's the M1861 version with the swell on muzzle! The carriages on the Napoleon are more detailed now. The Withworth is coming up next.

Look very realistic.
The marching rows are in an angle and not parallel to the street.
And the attacking group get a mass of soldier in the center.
There are losses where the attacking group pass the fence.

Very nice indeed.

The cannons look especially lovely.

The limber trailer pole looks very thick as a suggestion.

The diorama is really starting to take shape, well done.

Happy Christmas,

Chris

Hi mates,

This morning I received an order for these figures.
I had some doubts about the quality of figures made in 3D from experiences with other manufactures .., its quality did not satisfy me.
however, I have been amazed at the quality of these. They don't have flash, maybe any one smallest particle insignificant compared to most plastic figures and easily solved.
I was afraid that the details did not have enough relief to do a good job of painting, but despite not having painted any yet, I think you can get satisfactory results.
what has amazed me positively is the originality of the poses, which for an amateur like me that imitate paintings about war scenes (like the wonderful works of Don troiani or Ferrer Dalmau, for example) it give me the possibility of making vignettes full of action and very realistic.
I would love them to be a little bigger, but their size is not too small ... similar ACW esci, in my opinion.
To sum up, thank you very much to the manufacturers and I hope they continue to make more and more poses of infantry, artillery... and especially cavalry with so high quality.

Merry Christmas to all!

Alfredo
