New Troops and Panties

For the promotion and discussion for anything 18th Century that mixes wigs, powder and lace in a theme that is not quite historical, but not quite fantasy.

New artillerist have in the capitol of Uppendufsk from Prussia when asked about their ability to man the guns, due to their pettiteness, it was learned that the Frau gunners were of Chinese stock hence their stature. The Raugraffin was assured that although petite compare to good German stock they were pound for pound the equal of any artillerist in the Erzherzogins armed forces.

No they didn't turn out well at all, and some misalignment with the mold. The master maker or mold maker did a shocking job compared to the greens. However the greens looked like they may have been sculpted with fimo which is a big no no for vulcanised molds, anyway I'm speculating. They will paint up OK I guess, but a bit of a let down when compared to the original sculpting.

And the current state of availability is, anyway? Read the (ashamed?) seller fell into some warp portal?
