Is it me or are there now varying French infantry sizes these days from AB purchased from Eureka in the US? I've noticed a shorter French drummer variant and also shorter French infantry marching variations (AB-IF02). Not sure if that is intentional, new castings, or disorder…

Entirely intentional. People are of different sizes, and now we are reinforcing the number of variants under each code, especially of very popular codes like IF02, you will find a natural variation of height. Muskets are all the same size, but the men aren't.

Awesome! I love the little drummer boy, but I got nervous regarding my luck of the draw I got on several of the marchers. Thanks for the quick response!

Are line grenadiers larger than fusiliers in the AB line?

Thanks, Mr Barton, for the quick reply. The added variation on my four-figure stands will be great.
