In lieu of a better collective term I thought the above would suffice!
Going through my boxes of mid-C18 figures I found more Officer figures than I had imagined. Indeed not all are in the photo as I discovered a couple more zip-loc bags after taking the snap. A few months of Ebay bargain browsing and judicious sale shopping have produced more than I will need for Beimbach-Schönau.
I thought the picture may be useful as it illustrates figures from a few different ranges (Dixon, Front Rank, Foundry & Crusader) and shows that they are (in my humble opinion) fairly inter-changeable. The only chap who may be a bit "off" is the little Prussian Hussar - lurking upper right - but Hussars were recruited from smaller fellows! I do not think a unit of such troopers will look bad in the finished army.
Incidentally, I am told the nicely sculpted figure at front centre is supposed to be Friedrich der Große! What a terrible portrait. Yes he has a cane but he sports spurs and looks nothing like DAF.
Well, enough of this - time to get back to IR.10 and the clean-up/sculpting.
