I assume you mean as compared to having the head molded w/ helmet? Agree w/ that, esp. for those into the "Steampunk" - Victorian. Sci Fi.Agamemnon wrote:As dated as the sprues are in comparison to the new the Pith helmets separate accessory was a godsend to all sorts of conversion projects,

This in particular would have the sorely needed optional Officer bits, (arm w/ sword, pistol, pistol in holster etc). And perhaps a 2nd pose that could be another officer, or buglar, just tossing out 'maybe' ideas on that 2nd figure, the remaining 3 of 5 being the standard infantry.
The british Rocket artillary would be great, though very limited in sales, after all if each box had 2 - 3 rocket 'launchers & crew" , you would only need one.robbie038 wrote:An standard would be nice ..some artilery (eg. a gatling gun) and some cavalry (with an Oficer, Buglar, and a Standard), ..I agree with most of you on this one
Clearly not compared to some of there newer models, i.e. sculpts etc. but I still think they pretty good. I tend to agree w you the 'lack of market" for Victorian period.mrinku wrote:The whole British infantry kit really needs to be re-done from the ground up. They are not WGF's best figures.
There are a couple of things working against them though. It's not a really big market, and Warlord, frankly, has pretty good Zulu Wars plastics, ..Perry has the Madhists nailed stone cold
