  1. Neil – thanks for the review. The Perry’s, Warlord Games and Victrix have certainly set a high standard for plastics if this set can be considered disappointing!

    Anyway, not sure what you meant about the bedroll? When looking at the sprue from the front, it looked like the figure on the right had a bedroll strapped across his body. When you flipped the sprue over, wasn’t it the same figure (i.e. now on the left) that had the bedroll coming over his shoulder and tied across his back? Or should a bedroll only be visible either to the front or the back (and not both)? Warning – I’m posting before I had any coffee so I may be missing the point!

    🙂

  2. OK. Look at the figures when viewed from the back. The guy with the bedroll over his shoulder (on the right) also has one on top of his rucksack, whereas the one on the left has no bedroll at all.

    Hope that makes it clearer…

    Bought four boxes of these sight unseen, damn. Was pleased with the fact that I did not have to do much assembling, but if you look at the bedroll/knapsack issue, they just run into the shoulders as one big lump of plastic and look rubbish. The backpacks should have been seperate. The hands are huge. Look at the Perry site and see the greens they have for their Prussians, different league.
    I am a big fan of plastics, but Warlord’s pricing is starting to put me off.

  4. Re the units size. Not sure what the issue is here but then I may have misunderstood but a standard unit size in Black Powder is 24-30 figures so it is a standard unit size?

    You are quite right they badly suffer from comparison with Perry’s in terms of sculpt quality, variation and cost considering the British Line Infantry Perry Bros has a higher model count and not a hybrid kit.

    Taking all this into consideration I feel the term “disappointing” is an understatement you used that with Wargames Factory and at least they were cheap!!
