Those Bavarians look like they are advancing slowly. Attacking? Not so sure...

Great sculpts but I too question the poses. Kind of a strolling attack? Like we're not in a hurry to get to the enemy lines. Sure, your unit can go ahead of us we don't mind.

No - it's infanty *in advance*. Due to the fact that running exhausts an infantryman pretty quick and that the formation itself should be kept up as long as possible, a full charge would have been ordered only after reaching short distance to the enemy line.

Maybe further figures for 227 - Nap. Bavarian Infantry in attack or in advance, or moving forward, or... you name it... . ;-) :thumbup:

Whatever they get named they will be the core of my future Bavarian army to the tune of several boxes. I think the lower leg is a tad short on these which is a vast improvement over the short arms of the Imperial guard.

Good advancing figures. Wish they made French grenadiers too (and Russians etc.).
I’m still pretty sure those advancing French grenadiers were announced once?

Further WWII AT-Finns? Could be an attempt to sculpt the 20mm Madsen M40 AT-gun in 1/72?

I have to buy a set of those just to have a mounted drummer for conversion. I can find excuses to buy almost any set, just practicing to tell the wife why I bought them. Funny because just last night I was having dreams of making a mounted band for the dragoons imperiale de la garde. I don't recall ever seeing anyone create one before, at least not in 1/72 scale. :-D ;-)

It just occurred to me that hopefully these figures won't suffer from what many other mounted Strelets units do; they don't fit. We've all had a set where you push the figure down in the saddle and they shoot about 10 feet across the room.
