standing at attention for me. I found it to be the sturdiest posefor transportation, and the easiest one to cram in a box without fuss.

besides, it looks as if this pose carries the least flax, and easy to paint too

POLL DESCRIPTION

Omemin muses:

I generally go for marching figures (like "march-attack" for Seven Years War musket upright at the shoulder and marching forward) in more formal periods. I also use that pose for higher-quality troops.

For line infantry, I usually use "advancing" (musket carried with bayonet pointed at the enemy).

I rarely use firing poses, as I don't like the look in columns. ("I say, Hubert, why are you shooting at me?") I relented in that for the English Civil War, and I use shooters and reloading poses for militia in the AWI and in skirmish stands, which replace regular stands when the unit goes into skirmish formation.
