Finally updated my blog with my first review! I know its a little long, but I always enjoy the more detailed reviews then someone going "This is good" with two pictures.


Please let me know what you think.

Thanks for taking the time to write and take pictures for the article. Much better than the "they are so kewl" types of "reviews".

And while I am definitely in the metal camp, you gave me something to consider.

I love their minis.

A shame they aren't metal any longer.

Can't afford minis that melt in the heat.

I think you are about to get JL plaudits a plenty.

…..and I think they are right littewl dahlins, and a jolly good review, I may be prejudiced by the fact I have the two earlier sets grin

IŽll second that, this resin nonsense is a move in the wrong direction :(

The only point I strongly dislike (hate with a passion, actually) is the silly Napoleonic bicorne: memories of Lafitte, maybe, but requires a conversion to use the minis in a 18th C. setting.
For those who dislike the minidress, paint the girl with very close-fitting trousers hussar fashion. A very practical garb onboard, the minidress worn above it adding decency and a touch of femininity grin

As for resin… when Fenryll here started making resin minis decades ago, they were better sculpted and more finely detailed than almost any metal mini available then, so I'm not prejudiced at all against that medium.

Yes it would be nice if they were in metal.
