    I don't see 54mm listed. I do see 1/30, but it looks like it may be a typo.

    Pretty figures, and in one of my favorite periods, but again, too big to fit in my collection.

    Prost!

    1/30 makes sense, then. That corresponds to 60mm.

    Please consider adding these to your catalog some day in a true 54mm, too!

    Prost!

    With little modification, the Hessian officers could pass for officers in a number of other armies, too.

    Prost!

    I like 2 of the 4, I wish the Grenadier had been modelled along the lines of the illustration (As the first item) I find the action poses a bit meaningless unless you are going to place them in a Diorama with other figures. They will all appeal to lovers of the period of course for different reasons and it is good to see releases from this neglected period.

    I really like the drummer and the officer and I would buy both.

    Not sure about what looks like the slightly hunched pose of the standing infantryman.

    The aiming & firing grenadier looks OK but the pose isn't particularly inspiring, and for that period he probably shouldn't have a moustache (although I don't claim to be an expert).

    He was tired, that's why he was hunched down. That was the idea.)):)

    The British grenadier? I hadn't noticed that he had one, but I agree. I still haven't found out the reason, but at the time that armies on the Continent prescribed mustaches for their grenadiers-and many for the rest of the rank-and-file, too-somehow, that wasn't the fashion in Britain. The exceptions I think of were troops in colonial service, especially here in North America, but even then, that seems to have applied to the light infantry and rangers that developed. Even among civilians, if you lived in the settled areas, you shaved clean. If you lived on the frontier, it was common to grow out your beard.

    The Brits clubbed their hair, too, tucking the queue up under the grenadier cap, instead of letting it hang down the back, as in the other armies.

    Prost!

  17. very nice, (3 of the 4) first one' pose looks strange to me. Maybe the camera angle?
