6228 6229 - New redcoats
« on: June 07, 2011, 19:41:36 »
Hi,

the new redcoats are arrived at me. And they (and the pompoms) are really red - not the pale red of the older ones. I like the new and I think they won't stay alone  ;D

Greetings

Very nice looking new redcoats, it will be a long wait for us in the US

Very smart indeed, and thanks for the review and excellent photos.

I guess these could be used to create a British army for the American Revolution and the legs could be used in customs for Washington's army.

They look good, But I think I prefer the old ones to these.
The color scheme is off... even if it is historically correct, I don't like it. :P
Too bad they do not have the cross-belts either... :-\

But I do really like the captain. ;D
And I think if I took the time to customize him a bit
I would make a small troop of soldiers out of him. :!:

Thanks for sharing these pics as well, Vauban!  :)9

I really like them, only too bad the privates don't have a short poneytail-wig (in brown, black or blond) like their officer.

I'm not sure about exchanging the sword-belt for crossbelts on these guys; crossbelts may hide the prints on their uniform too much because of the open-buttoned uniform-printdesign...

The ones that will come with the pirate-sets in August, have printed crossbelts that "cross" on their chest at a higher point then the plastic crossbelts, most probably for not interfering to much with the uniform-print.

I have an idea to make a cross-belt while still keeping the sword belt. :!:
I might even like the idea enough to buy a few of these guys... :)
