Bill. Take a look at the WSS offerings from Stretlets in 1/72nd scale. Very nice plastics and available from Michigan Toy Soldier.

We've received some figures for an upcoming Showcase project, and thought you'd like to see the figures before we send them off to the painter.

Austrophile Infantry of the Line

In 1:72 scale, these are Minairons' Austrophile line infantry (musketeers) [20GSF003] for the War of the Spanish Succession.
