I've used a mixture of Zvesda, Revell, Italeri, HaT & some OOP metals: quite a bit of conversion needed, as apart from the last named, nothing exists for the Prussians or French of the period.

To do these periods you need to be creative.

OK: starting with a Zvesda GNW body, what would needed to be done?

:coffee:
Soldiers marching, cavalry charging ,artillery firing the list goes on and on with the power of emotive wants and needful things in our expanding imagination.

The thing is we all ponder upon the question of size and quality.

Side by side figures placed for size comparisons is what you need to see? Others like myself too.
I have the Zvezda figures but not the others.
So cannot show you. If any members do have them one photograph placed here would do.

If no one has the figures you asked question upon the forward roll of the dice is buy a few as samples then decide what course to take from there. i guess we all have to do this? BB

I was thinking about the heads on the GerMan Spanish grenadiers.

Could you buy a set & use the heads to make a mold for the Zvesda GNW figures?

You've now gone beyond any expertise I have in the period. What do they look like?

I see your point about pikes & the Zvesda sets from the GNW will only supply a few standing, pike upright poses.

There are metal ranges such as Les Higgins Marlborough range that are very nice but @1/72 scale will not sit well with the Zvesda giants. If you only used them, however, problem solved. They have a full range of infantry, cavalry & artillery.

You need a seller's address?
