Psst! Today I have a veeery special sneak preview. Something really precious. I dunno if anyone of you has already had a look at this set and I had the opportunity and the privilege to hold it in my hands and put my brushes on it long before this set reaches the stores.
Aren't they really, really beautiful? Lovely, absolutely lovely. The figures are greatly detailed, as are the horses. Okay - you need to cut away some extra plastic between the horses' legs and some little mould lines here and there, but the total outcome of these figures is simply great. So what have we got here?
First, there's a Landwehr officer, painted in the colours of the Elbe Landwehr:
A figure which was really missing yet. I don't know about any mounted other Landwehr officer in 1/72 plastic.
The next one is a Spanish officer, painted in the colours of the Spanish walloon guard:
So what's next? Well - a Russian infantry officer!
Of course, as many of you might have already realized, these figures are from a forthcoming new set of Allied commanding officers from HaT. Definitely filling a gap, especially when you think about the fact, that HaT already shows the prototypes of forthcoming sets of Prussian Landwehr, Spanish infantry and Russian infantry on their website.
Oh - and pssssst - the next surprise is coming soon... ;-)
