Officer of Grenadiers, 1812
by Joseph Isenberg Date Added: Thursday 24 April, 2008
The Russian Grenadier order, consisting of 8 standard Russian grenadiers with Kiwer, and 8 Pavlov grenadiers, privates, standard bearer, drummer and officer for each set, arrived yesterday. These turned out to be very nice indeed; obviously, I have not had a chance to paint them yet but I think they are going to paint up just fine. They are historically accurate, and well-sculpted. They are proportioned well individually, and match well with eachother. They are slightly shorter and thinner than the products of some other manufacturers, and are thus closer to true 25's than to the 28's one increasingly sees on the market. Still, they are sufficiently tall to be compatible. There was only a tiny amount of spare lead on the bottom of the base where the mould came out, however, this will be easily trimmed or filed off--there is no sprue or spare lead anywhere else. The details are crisp. One interesting point is the eye-sockets, which are quite the largest I have seen on any 25 mm figure. THIS IS A GOOD THING, as one can deal realistically with the eyeballs using a two line method--a white horizontal line where the eyes ought to be and two dark lines for the dark part. There is enough space on the figure to do this and have a good result.

They represent good value for money.

I would recommend these figures and intend to purchase more in the future.
