Although, these are standing still. Nevertheless very usefull to me.
Still: hope Strelets will produce Napoleonic sets for firing line and advancing in 2020.
They promised that for all these series, so probably they’ll come one day.

Boers Field Artillery, masters.
A crew of fourteen (!).

Would be a clever move if they made artillery sets for, let’s say, the Waterloo participants: British horse and foot, French guard foot and line, Prussian.
A good French guard foot and Prussian is still lacking. Imagine full crews (and hopefully with arm in good proportions!).

Lovely, they will probably mix nicely with my old Springwood models

Finally! I longed and waited for a set like this for many many years.
I like the masters. And the staff figures are nice too (which is not always the case with Strelets). I think I see one oil covered kiwer.
Probably I’ll make musketeers of these grenadiers. Taking off the plume is easy in this case (in contrast to the French grenadiers).
I’m a happy man.
:-)


(set1?, set2 will be greatcoat marching or?)

Oh, wait: the fifer is quite silly, he’s holding it the wrong way, oh well)

These are very nice indeed but these at attention sets in my opinion have limited use.

These Brunswickers are however lovely sculpts and represent another big plus for Stretlets.

Agreed, excellent sculpts but only of limited benefit for me.
Would love marching & action sets of the "Schwarze Schar" very much though. ;-) :yeah:

And I agree too. But Strelets said several times that they will give each unit the same treatment of at attention, shoulder arms, at ease, marching, advancing and action etcetera.
That’s a long ambitious program and only few advancing have been made, but it gives the patient ones among us at least some hope.
I guess the standing and at ease sets are not too complicated to make so that’s why they start with them.
Well, that’s all nice and stuff, bit I do hope they make proper advancing poses for all those future sets. This is: the muskets and aimed horizontally forward, carried at the level of the hips.

He's not playing a fife, but a flute. Which is quite silly, indeed. I'm going to skip that dude for sure - but overall, that set is too good to miss.

Excellent masters, no matter what. But in fact, I'm a little bit disappointed. At Waterloo, Brunswick fielded 8 infantry battalions. Only one of them was guard infantry. Everybody makes the 'Leibbataillon', but the main body of the Brunswick infantry is left out. :(
As far as I know, the only source to get light/line Brunswickers, is Schilling figures.

I agree completely with you, Sascha. It is time for the Line Infantry! Maybe Strelets has this in mind as well.

The French General/Marshal has more than a passing resemblance to Davout.
