Slogging on and finishing my fifth of my 18th century Saxon infantry regiments of the Great Northern War. This is Reuss’ Regiment of infantry, wearing the usual red coat and this time having light blue distinctions.
The principal figures used are the firing line figures. They are some of the more awkward poses to be found in the box. For starters, the poses are a trifle gawky and the kneeling figures are almost the same height as the standing. What’s more, they all seem to aim far too high. Perhaps charging cavalry are closing in or perhaps the enemy is marching towards them steeply downhill!? I’ve counteracted that effect to a small degree by tilting those figures slightly forward on their bases.
