Hi VW,
Yes, I prepared a set of French, but must start again, these dolls comes out too big as my new silicone let them grow, so final figures may be 19-20 mm. This is not acceptable. And this is why I now start figures from 15mm dolls, then casted final ones will be 16-18mm as intended.

I prepare now troop and troopers moulds, command will be later, I now do command moulds separately. So Austrian command come after Grenadiers and Hungarian Grenadiers already wait for moulding, there are only some final touch to do. Also different Commands will be share the same mould, so French and Austrian Commands will appear on the same time. And then Generals.

Hi Sho

Thanks for your feed back, terrible to see that you always have to undergo a huge learning curve when changing over to a new material, what is the status about the Chasseurs Cheval?

British Light Dragoons will be casted on next week, then Hungarian Grenadiers and then Chasseurs-a-Cheval. First Chasseurs are in process already. All new cavalry sets will have 9 trooper poses.
After these will be early British and French Heavy Cavalry troopers and early British Light Infantry troops.
And then Commands.
And then Generals.

Also I prepared some exotic troop dolls (Danish, Swedish etc.) but as these also will be too big for later processes, I will on someday start them over with 15mm dolls.
