The idea of attaching the coat tail to the knapsack is most innovative and interesting, making the tails look appropriately thin and eliminating and chunk of unsightly plastic.

These are resins of the original three-up masters' for two boxed sets of mid-war French Line Infantry, all represented in the long-tailed coats: the classic look. All the figures are in overalls. Although designed as French Line Infantry, they could be painted as Swiss, Italian, Spanish in French service, Hanoverian Legion, etc.

The main battalion boxed set will consist of a 36-figure unit with fusiliers and both flank companies, plus command, with the option of either marching or attacking poses for all. In this set, there will also be eight voltigeurs (yes, two extra which could be used as additional NCOs) skirmishing. So that's 44 figures in this set.

A second boxed set, which will come out close to the first one, will contain mostly the voltigeur frames plus a command frame. Although designed as voltigeurs, these could be painted as grenadiers too.

As you can see, the long-coat tails are attached to the knapsack to give a full 3D effect and movement to the figures.

Alan couldn't resist painting a few of the resins…

There's no release date.
