Very nice Matt. How do they compare in scale to, say Front Rank or Redoubt?

Not to be too picky, but isn't that the regiment that had red gaiters? Or are they depicted before whatever battle it was where they stood up to their knees in blood? [Sorry, my Funcken's not close to hand to look it up.]

Sash & Saber Prussians are row #6 amongst these:

Apcheronskiy had red gaiters after Kunersdorf in 1759.

Very nice. One of the regiments in my painting queue, so good to see someone else painting them up.

Thank you, bluewillow. And a very good joke, Cardinal. [BTW, the painting looks good; I hope no one took my comment as a criticism.]

How long have S&S been "at it" that they don't have any Prussian cavalry, aside from Hussars, have no gunners (never mind guns), and have such a sparse Russian offering as to almost not exist? Also, no Austrians, British, or French?? Now, I just got a packet of their Prussian command in to "round out a unit," and I am impressed, so this isn't meant as criticism, but as "observation;" IotWs, "just askin'!"

I sent S&S an email in 2008 asking when 'Coming Soon' was likely to happen. Didn't get a response.

Anyone heard anything since the last "nothing heard?" huh?

I own quite a few French Napoleonic figures from S&S. The artillery are excellent also. Had them for years now. I lament that S&S doesn't expand their ranges. Nice figures in this unit.

If I am not mistaken, doesn't the sculpter for S and S work for Old Glory? His work on the Second Edition OG figures could be seen as an expansion perhaps?

Only after a fashion, since this discussion began with reference to the SYW, NOT to the AmRev, Napoleonics, or ACW?? wink
