Just thought I'd update you on the progress of these figures from Eureka, and try to spark interest in several others that are on the Club 100 list too (purely for self-interest as I would like Nic Robson to get these figures sculpted as well
Nic sent me an email tonight about the plans for the mounted troops from the Arquebusiers de Grassin (listed at present in the Club100 section on p2 as 100CLUBHM24) ->
"" Based on responses received last year we are proposing to make the following figures:
100AOR75 Arquebusiers de Grassin 1744 - 49 mounted trooper, scouting on
trotting horse (4)
100AOR76 Arquebusiers de Grassin 1744 - 49 mounted officer, scouting on
trotting horse (1)
100AOR75 Arquebusiers de Grassin 1744 - 49 mounted standard bearer, scouting
on trotting horse (1)
100AOR75 Arquebusiers de Grassin 1744 - 49 mounted horn blower, scouting on
trotting horse (1)
(number in brackets indicates the number of variants)
Can you please let me know by the end of November if you would still
purchase the figures, and the quantity of each code that you would like?
If we still have the numbers to make the figures at that point, we
anticipate delivery to you in February 2013.
If anyone has contact with Charles S. Grant, I think he may be interested in this, too, as he has mentioned his desire to add a mounted arm to his foot contingent of the arquebusiers in one of his Wargaming in History books.
I can also say that Stuart at Maverick Miniatures
and Iain at Flags of War
have both got versions of the flags for this unit, horse & foot, in their listings.
Furthermore, Nic has kindly added a new listing in the Club 100 section for Legion de Saxe - item number CLUB100HM105 on page 2 of the Club 100 listing. I sent Nic details for the Uhlans/Lanciers of the Volontaires de Saxe & also the dragoons, so expressions of interest in both would be wonderful!
Could I also inspire you all to consider subscribing to the listing on p3 for the SYW Schaumberg-Lippe-Bukeberg Carabiniers 100CLUBHM44. These are such unusual troops that participated in the Kleine Krieg of the Allied army in Germany under Ferdinand of Brunswick - every army needs them, especially any Imagi-nation force!!
So, drop in to Eureka (& referring to a thread in General Discussion), I don't think his figures are too expensive for their high quality, & a jolly sight cheaper than a resin
character figure from GW!
Cheers to all, Rohan
(DPT, I'm sure you will support me here!! Blow the mustering trumpets loud & gather the forces! - purely as a matter of self-interest!)
