It is almost as if some item of underwear was binding slightly, or the heat was getting to them and the itch made them wish they had "gone Commando" as in SE Asia

Weird posing is one thing- variation in plumes and details unfathomable and balloon overalls add to the humour… ah well.. d

Drives me nuts that after all the great sets they've made, HaT still can't produce a decent set of French infantry for the 1806-12 period. It's infuriating. I bemoan the lack of gaiters, in addition to the ridiculous marching poses. Some of the other poses are equally disatisfying.

And why oh why can't they give us more than two lousy horse poses for cavalry sets?

The only good I can think of for those silly legs is to cut them off and put a top half bayonetting or at high post, or an artillery crew member or engineer.

Zvezda was just on the verge of creating a set of fusiliers when they quit making the big sets. Damn. They would have been glorious.
