These look nice!

Nice, but rowing backwards unfortunately.

Well any comment is a belessing. TY

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP17 Jun 2022 3:08 p.m. PST

Funny I'm only the printer but I hadn't noticed that backwards but you are right. Of course it is pretty much a staged picture :)

I still think you would be better off actually commissioning a 3D CAD sculptor to produce exclusively for you.
That would certainly be better than apologizing for inaccuracies.

The closest I can come to describing those hats is Prussian or Hessian fusilier. Certainly not bearskins.

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP17 Jun 2022 7:22 p.m. PST

I know but if you follow the ink if have bearskins

Gus Fring17 Jun 2022 8:14 p.m. PST

I simply think that as a manufacturer, you are responsible for the accuracy of the product.
And those bearskins are also rather dodgy. They look French.
And I'm not very sure about the cuffs.

Just think about what is going out under your name.

Relax, Gus. It's just a game.

And quite hilarious.

I agree it is "just a game". I like the line enough to print and sell them. What I like the most is I can print these in 40mm for myself and others. That scale is such a niche market to begin with. There are only a few manufacturers. They are all great but they don't cover everything. I was a Vanguard-Trident reseller for a few years.

Bearskin heads

And the cuffs are wrong for AWI. They're … adequate for FIW or SYW.

I stand by my "suggestions".

They look interesting enough to sample, but not when I see such indifference to accuracy.

Old Contemptible18 Jun 2022 2:37 p.m. PST

I am still tempted to get them. Would be great for a number of scenarios in both The FIW and AWI.

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP18 Jun 2022 8:05 p.m. PST

Try one, if you don't like it I will refund your $$$ I am a game first :)

What size are the 40mm Canoes and boats?

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP19 Jun 2022 3:16 p.m. PST

Hi Doug

To be honest OI haven't measured them. I will do so and post it.

nnascati Supporting Member of TMP19 Jun 2022 5:23 p.m. PST

To me, the boats seem too small. I picture whaleboats with a dozen or more soldiers in each.

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP19 Jun 2022 8:31 p.m. PST

I understand that Nick and as I have stated before these are not my design. I just print and market them. Of course I personally think they are cool but am probably the only member of my church. Are you still in 40's?

nnascati Supporting Member of TMP20 Jun 2022 8:20 a.m. PST

Chris, no. Actually I've gone down scale to 15mm for most. The only big figures I have are my Elastolins.

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP20 Jun 2022 4:52 p.m. PST

Elastolins are keepers for sure. These print out quite nicely in 15mm as well.

Zephyr120 Jun 2022 8:59 p.m. PST

So, has anyone tried seating the rowers backwards to see if that fixes the problem..? ;-)

greenknight4 Sponsoring Member of TMP21 Jun 2022 8:39 a.m. PST

LOL yes I have. In fact I just printed one up for myself in 40mm and of course it reverses. I will post a pic soon.
