General Officer

Just a quick post to let you know I am still here, and that PA are still slowly progressing the SYW  range😀

General Officer

There have been quite a few requests for a general officer, so PA are proposing to produce one. Rather than the usual sword in hand we thought something a little more interesting might look good, so we went with bare head with his hat in his hand - I think it is rather splendid.

As with the other mounted figures, he will have a separate right arm and swapable  head, so there will also be an alternative with head covered and a baton.

And you can also (hopefully) use an arm from the dragoons to give him a sword in hand (the hilt on the horse would need cutting off which might be fiddly)

If you don't mind the poses being the same you could make some French household cavalry using various arms (sword, trumpet & standard).

Light Infantry

The light infantry are also well underway, there will be standing firing and kneeling firing for both the Grenz & Frei Korps, I will post something when I have more details.

As always feedback would be appreciated.

  2. He looks rather nice Steve...
    Grenz and Frei Korps... Hurrah!

    All the best. Aly

    1. I'm sure you could think of more arm options:
      - telescope?
      - hawk?
      - message?
      - bottle?

  3. This is a great idea and the photos seem as good as the idea.

    I have told the sculptor (Chris Tubb) that the figures get a thumbs up.

    Please note that these are not photos, they are screen shots from the digital sculpting programme - I have not seen actual figures yet.
