Hät 8294, 8296, 8297 and 8234 - Napoleonic sets

Today a few very individual, subjective, never objective, and judgmental reflections of these four Napoleonic sets.

Thank you for posting this. A very interesting review & I agree with part, at least, of your criticism. Opportunity lost?

Very good post! I too have a split (scale) personality when it comes to Napoleonic miniatures, in the end my rationale for building armies in 1/72 and 28mm was that the Perry plastics are for 1815 so my 1/72 are all from 1809-1812. Except for the Italeri British and French in my stash that I purchased years ago. So I told myself I wouldn't paint those. Except lately I have been thinking well if my 1815 forces in 28mm are just French vs. Prussians then I can do 1815 British in 1/72, but then they will need French opposition...and so it goes...

It's even worse in World War II, not only do I have 1/72 and 28mm but I also have 15mm! Multiple personalities indeed...

It´s a pity but unfortunatly you are right with many of your descriptions. More minimalism in figure-production isn´t possible concerning figure-poses, -details and plastic.
Let´s hope they will change still and return to the qualities and box-sizes of their best sets in the past.

Thanks a lot for your replies.
Sometimes you are a lone man in the hobby, and it's great that other people feel sometimes similiar. :-D :-D :-D
