Thanks for the correction, Haron, and to Erich for posting the new images. These British Dragoons look excellent!

Am I the only one who thinks that the resemblance between this set and Strelets 238 (WSS British Cavalry) is more than casual? For example, the horses are identical. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Santi.

The consistently style, the similarity of the images of master figures and the use of the same dollies for sets of horses suggests to me that we are seeing the work of one sculptor here. The person is very prolific, talented and very skilful.
This sculptor appears to be working for Dark Alliance, Strelets R and Linear A, all at the same time, so I assume they do not get to see a lot of day-light because of the number of masters that they are producing.

Well observed. The horses do indeed seem to be identical. Everything seems to indicate that it's the same sculptor. A pity actually, considering the horses. Don't get me wrong, they are nice enough and while I understand that companies must economize, nevertheless I had hoped they might differ, as I had considered eventually buying a set to bolster my WoSS cavalry (the difference in uniforms is not that big) and a set of somewhat different horses would have been nice. Now I'll probably stick to the upcoming Strelets sets.

I share your opinion, Steve. I thought the same about the sculptor of the Caesar Miniatures figures at the height of this manufacturer, when new sets were rapidly succeeding one after another. :drool:

By the way, this sculptor was the same one of my beloved Swiss Vatican Guards, produced under his own brand MM Miniatures. :mrgreen:

The two Scottish cavalry sets for the Jacobite Rebellion should also be released soon now, both containing 12 poses again. :thumbup:

Hurrah, yet more to add to the stash, though I expect these two to appear on the painting tray fairly quickly

SYW.

The Red Box British cavalry can obviously be used for British SYW armies (I don't have one) but the top set may be of use to me.

Hard to see details but would the Prince's Lifeguard regiment/Fitzjames' Horse be good French SYW cavalry (I do have an army of these)?

I have a memory that the Jacobite cavalry wore a tartan sash across their shoulders but AFAICT these don't have it....maybe the second set does?

I think they'll do:

I'll need a box of these, maybe two.
