Some other news from this active producer. Just found them on their website:

Seems to me they are not as good as other sets of this kind... :eh:

I tend to disagree. The uniforms were simple, so the figures are simple. As is the pose.
I can use them if they turn at okay. The greatcoat is a bit too long though. Not much but still.
I did some thinking about the French guard grenadiers at ease: I seriously consider to use at least one set for making dead grenadiers out of them. They seem suitable and acceptabel for that, without too complicated conversions (some arm bending, cutting the rifles of carefully, twist the heads a bit).
Nice addition ànd much needed reinforcement for my Plancenoit project.
Especially when even more Prussians coming out.

For my eyes they did not have that much details, even for simple greatcotes. But you are right, let us wait for the final result. They are useful anyway. For a massed unit they are fine.

These chaps at attention are, in my opinion very restrictive in their possible application and use. A bit like all those old Airfix ACW figures at attention you used to get in each packet.

I feel at ease versions are far more useful for dioramas and wargaming.

An interesting thought regarding making casualties.

Best wishes,

Alas, those standing at "order arms" have the musket on the wrong side. About as much use as a chocolate frying pan, I'm afraid!
