Wow.

They look great except for the bayonet – it's too far out of line with the barrel.

I've ordered my 4 boxes. Can't wait for more to come out. Great work Ebor.

Turnbacks….
So not very useful pre 1760

By my measurements this is about 2 barrel widths to the outside edge of the bayonet which means the one on the model is about the same.

Really like the figure but the hair doesn't look right for the SYW. Shouldn't it all be gathered into the queue at the back, rather than hanging down at the sides, which is more in the style of the early 18th Century?

turn backs, yes by all means, already shown in the Becher Manuscript, also cross belts

otherwise it would be pre 7YW

Duc, this may represent a soldier on campaign. Under those conditions his hair might be slightly out of regulations.

Boy, 50K USD for such a thin niche period seems very ambitious, but the figures are beautiful! I wish you luck. Here's to following your dream.

in case you like t download the original Becher manuscript, you can do it plate by plate

WOW !! This is why I don't do Kickstarter!!
At least I get my figures sculpted, molded, cast, and released before everyone starts ripping them to shreds.

You're missing all the fun, Russ!

Good luck with these figures! The French SYW army has always been a favourite – it must be all those great Eugene Leliepvre illustrations.
Danke an Herrn von Winterfelt für den Becher link. I have always wanted to see those plates!

I hope this is successful so you can do Austrians next grin
