Interesting. I thought they would be the same poses as the infantry, but wth head swaps. Yet I see subtle variations

And the quality looks good. Want to see the raw plastic, but very promising

If they are accurate, I will retire my Esci versions

I JUST made a unit of these guys by swapping the Italeri heads with HaT bodies. Damn. These guys look a LOT better.

Are they realistic Marc?

I'm not Marc, but I'd say they look realistic for the period in question. It must be noted, however, that very few grenadier regiments wore the miter in this period. I made a list of them, but not at hand.

The grenadier bns. of the Narva and Old Ingermanland musketeer reg'ts. had them at Austerlitz. Supposedly The Moscow grenadier reg't., and the grenadier bn. of the Valdimir musketeer reg't. were wearing them at Eylau. Now if the Moscow grenadier reg't.'s grenadier bn. was still in mitres does this mean that the two fusilier bns. were still wearing fusilier caps? Would the fusilier bns. of the Pavlov grenadier reg't. be still wearing fusilier caps?

Paul. Yep, the packs and straps look better than the old Italeri set. I am looking forward to these
