Nice figures!

Carlos, I do not think poses are that bad - I think these should be sort of 'skirmishers' as set #3 is 'pike'.

Just that I hope that 'pike' set has more than 20 figures in it. That one is much more needed - so one could make true tercio...

Well, i also trust still in the pikemen set...

In this set 2 i found the figures too thin and inactive, like they were in famine.. Actually it should have happened often to the spanish soldiers of those times :)

seriously, maybe i wanted one or two mor active swordsmen i guess..

I saw them.. even more dissapointed wth the spanish pikemen.. too thin

itlaian are nice however..
Burgunduians not interesting,, plenty of them or similiar sincde Miniart started, followed by other sets from italeri, zvezda.. always XIV-XV cent. generic infantry and knights
New ultiam Ratio swiss are also the same

This is a good suggestion..!!!
Hungarian should be very colourful and good mix of wetern style knight with eastern style irregulars and cav

Well basically what I have in mind is that manufacturer around the world should make some sort of arangment so that they all cover different periods and nations. For example why would be there on market 4 sets of same nation and not one set of other nation. I also don't get it in many aspects of life, for example TV stations. Why can't they make that one station display one movie at 19:00 and other in 21:00 so that you can watch both movies directly. This way you have rich TV program and always something to watch. Same goes for figures, we don't need 10 sets of same unit or nation by all manufacturer and at same time not 1 set of some other nation or unit. The richer the offer on global market is more money they will earn and they will attract more people...

For example, Zvezda made Prussian Grenadiers of Fredrick the Great...Nice set...But why is there no oponents...Why isn't there Austrians and Russian of that time. We have Revell Austrain but they pulled out of sale. If for example HaT or Italery made Austrian and Russian than people would buy both Zvezda and Italeri or HaT set so that they could make battle...This way both manufacturer would earn money...

You'll be saying next that there are rather too many WW2 German sets... ;-)

There are Landsknechts, Swiss and now you have Italians and Spanish.
Turks almost complete...

What do you mean? There are Imperialists, French and Italians - it is all you need for Italian Wars!

A lot of cavalry sets - from light to heavy (War of Roses range), we only miss Spanish and Italian artillery now.

In fact that range is nicely planed.

I mean there are not some sets like Austrian army of Eugene of Savoy or Turkish Napoleonic Army or Greek Revolution army or Hungarain uprising soldiers... The list goes on and on... But that is not something that can't be corrected in the near future isn't it? ;-)

We need to keep our patience and I am sure we will be satisfied with upcoming results of what they will give us.
Strelets and Red Box new sculpting is excellent. We can expect more great sets in future...

Interesting point. Probably a good idea. But you should watch less TV and model more! :D

Yes Bluefalchion,

Good point - but it does not apply to RedfBox range.

In fact it is the best planed range I've seen!
