28mm Prussian SYW Artillery Figure Set on the Way from HaT!!!

Just a brief note today, to sound the clarion call. . . Apparently, there is a forthcoming 28mm set of plastic SYW Prussian artillery in the works from HaT! Thanks to Guy over at the Old School Wargaming Yahoo group for mentioning this exciting news in a post earlier today. The set has a catalog number already and does show up on that company's website, though there is no box art yet and no date of release. But, if you are into plastic figures and cannot track down the increasingly rare (and pricey) 1/72 Revell Austrian horse artillery set, or you are thinking about adding some new figures to your 25mm mid-18th century collection, the HaT figure set might be worth checking out. I'll certainly keep my eyes open for it in the coming months. Click here to view the "roughs": http://www.hat.com/Prev/7YWPA/7YWPAm.html. These early figures look good, so I might just forget my self-imposed temporary moratorium on buying anymore figures once the set is issued!

I just wonder how much of all that detail will get carried through to the end plastic figure. Plastic cannot be as crisply defined as their metal counter parts and the softer plastic used for many of these figures even less so.

I have just been reading a review of the hat 28mm napoleonic Bavarians which are just being released. Whilst these roughs look promising, I'm not sure if that detail will translate into the final product. I do hope I'm wrong as Zvesda seem to be able to hit the mark. I do hope Zvesda release more in their SYW range and surely artillery will be a must. If it comes anywhere close to their GNW releases then I'll be happy.

Regards,
Guy

Just when I had made up my mind to proceed with my 40mm PA home-casts for my 18th Cent. Fictional Armies....

No... I shall NOT be tempted....
