Very attractive figs…but what would one use them for, and without artillery crew and mounted forces, kind of a reach? Sorry, not a criticism, but a sincere question about their usefulness. My German portion of my heritage comes from Bavaria, so I am always interested in Bavarian troops.

I am sure, that I will be commissioned to sculpt and produce the cavalry and artillery also on some time. I just resist so far and try to sculpt all infantry I want first.

Sounds good! Thank you!

Best way to motivate Sho Boki is to buy his infantry miniatures, then there will be progression.

I "sponsored" in the past quite a few lines Sho Boki sculpted – never was displeased

True. Sculpting and producing these Bavarians was also commissioned and paid by von Winterfeldt. He keep me on track, supplied me with correct historical data and not allow me to produce parade troops, only campaign ones.

sort of campaign dress ;-).
Like insisting in bread bags, haversacks, hip packs, water bottles, so what they would carry in the field.

Looks like von Winterfeldt has commissioned a line of troops that no doubt can find work elsewhere. I sure the Bavarians were able to fight many enemies at this time, even if they are imagi-enemies.

Aren't they usable as early napoleonic Wurtemburg troops?

Interesting question. I don't know, how Wurtemberg troops looks like before 1805.
There are some similarity in cut of lapels and helmet, but otherwise imho not.
