It is not just the modelling…or even "just" the casting……that lace painting in 15/18mm.

Black musket slings? Surely not…..Mt St Jean told me not. Mine have white, to take the bridge at Charleroi anyway.

Except every single reference shows black. Actually, what happened was that the Marins had left their firearms behind that morning and had to borrow the Engineers'. Now that is "The Last Great Secret of the Campaign of 1815"….I feel a book coming on

Haha good analysis deadhead.

Nice figures from AB as always.

OK the muskets are a bit overscale, but, if they were not, imagine the fragility..

I have to say again…maybe I should rethink what is TOTS.

I have a small stock of AB products left over from a few carriage projects I did…..amazing quality.

Oh Gawd, I feel the urge to get a battalion of these, and the Gendarmes D'elite as well. Not to mention some of the other new releases.

I will have to wait until Fighting 15s get some in.

That is what is so weird. The makers give us what we ask for.

But then we end up buying what is 0.000001% of an average French Napoleonic army……

At least they hope we do so. The dice throwers order thousands of French in overcoats or 1812 rig……..modellers of famous Elite units will not fund the pensions of our suppliers however.

It's a shame there's no drummer there, they were even more gaudy.

There are indeed drummers,and officers and an Eagle Bearer as well….

OK, just see the lace on the occifer's waistcoat…or the tassels on his boots…or how thin is the lace on his cuffs.

Then consider the scale……..

I am sure the silver look to the aigulettes is just a trick of the light…a reflection. It is the black musket slings that still annoy me (as being accurate)
