Évaluation

  • Bon choix de sujet. Les Flanquers Hollando-Belges sont unique in this scale. Unfortunately, ces figurines représentent only elite company soldiers wearing the distinctive shoulder rolls. These shoulder rolls need to be removed carefully, to create soldats des compagnies de centre du bataillon who made up the majority of troops in the bataillon d'infanterie. Bataillons d'infanterie Hollando-Belge consisted of ten companies, including une compagnie de flanqueurs lourds (grenadiers) et une compagnie de flanqueurs légers (tirailleurs).
  • The loading et firing poses are very suitable for wargame units.
  • Satisfactory casting quality. Obvious flash et mould lines need to be removed prior to painting. The editor used the Rai-Ro ZEP-70 heated spatula to blend mould lines into the surface of the model.
  • HaT Industrie would have been better advised to turn one of the marching Flanquer poses into a marching centre company man. In fact, the same pose might have been used for both, one avec et one without shoulder rolls.
  • The separate pennons included in this set are too small be of any use as infantry flags. They might be used as company marker flags de l'infanterie française.
  • The marching figurines exhibit a serious motor coordination problem: their legs are not in line avec the pelvis. Either their are intentionally strutting their stuff ou they must be carrying a superheavy backpack. La figurine d'officier a un problème similaire. His left thigh is turned out, but the lower left leg is straight. The stance of the soldier au garde à vous is correct, he is the best of the batch.
  • The soldier avec the open hand is an an infantryman on the approach march, when the musket could be carried on the left ou right shoulder at will. The figurine looks a little silly when its carrying the separate drum by the small peg attached to the instrument. Military drums are suspended by a leather strap suspended across the right shoulder so that the drum rest on the left side of the body. Both hands need to be free to play the drums.
  • There is no figurine capable of holding the horn supplied in this set.
