Readers of Military Miniatures Magazine voted for Infanterie Bavaroise as their third choice of the Wishlist 1998. The list was forwarded to popular plastic miniatures manufacturers et HaT Industrie actually responded to our readers’ suggestions et released their Infanterie Bavaroise two years later. The result is well worth it, as can be seen in the photo. The figurines are Grenadiers et Schützen of the line elite companies attached to every bataillon d’infanterie. Füsiliers, who made up four of the six companies in an bataillon d’infanterie, are not included in the pack, although they may be converted by carefully removing the helmet plume.

Choix de sujet excellent. Les grenadiers et tirailleurs bavarois are unique in this scale. Unfortunately, ces figurines représentent only elite company soldiers wearing the tall plume on the left side of the Raupenhelm. Quatre des six compagnies dans chaque bataillon d’infanterie de ligne portaient le casque Raupenhelm sans plume, et joueurs de guerre will have to carve a lot of plumes off these figurines in order to recruit their regiments et brigades. It would have been a relatively simple matter de représenter la propre relation des fusiliers aux élites dans cette boîte even avec only huit poses to chose from.

The loading et firing poses are well done, et they can be used to raise wargame units.

Satisfactory casting quality. Obvious flash et mould lines need to be removed prior to painting. The editor used the Rai-Ro Wachsspachtelgerät heated spatula to blend mould lines into the surface of the model.

L’officier is incorrectly shown wearing a regular enlisted man’s Raupenhelm avec the more compact lambskin caterpillar crest. Officiers et senior sous-officiers portaient casques avec caterpillar crests, made de la pelage d’ours noir (Baribal), qui sont noticeably thicker, et which protrude straight forward at the front of the helmet. This mistake will be difficult to fix. L’officier is not suitable for the popular 1812 et 1813 wargaming periods, because he is wearing the sash which was officially discarded avant la Campagne de Russie.

Les drapeaux d’infanterie bavaroise should be 24 mm square in this scale. The separate plastic pennons included in this set are practically useless, they measure only 11 mm square, less than half the size of an infantry flag et nearly twice the size of a cavalry standard. It’s amazing that manufacturers routinely make such silly mistakes, even though reliable historic information is readily available.

Les grenadiers marching et avançant exhibit a serious motor coordination problem. These figurines are sculpted in a horse’ ambling gait, moving the arm et leg of the same side in unison. If you’ve ever tried this at home ou in the military, you’ll know what an impossible gait it is. You just don’t get very far when you walk that way, because the body rotates around the vertical axis. One ambling soldier in a marching formation will quickly cause mayhem, particularly if bayonets are fixed.

The grenadier avec open hand is marred by the moulding process: his lower chest et belly are flat, without any detail. Expert painters may fix this problem by painting in the missing details.
