HäT 8279 - Napoleonic mounted officers 1/72



Im HäT Release E22 ist auch das Set  8297 - Napoleonische Offiziere zu Pferd -  dabei. Das Set besteht aus insgesamt 12 Figuren und 12 Pferden.

The HäT Release E22 includes also the Set 8297 – Napoleonic mounted Officers. The set consists of a total of 12 figures and 12 horses.






In der Schachtel befinden sich 3 gleiche Spritzlinge. An einem Spritzast  finden sich 4 Figuren und 4 Pferde.

Die Figuren:

  • 1 spanischer Offizier mit separatem Arm und Pferd
  • 1 russischer Offizier mit separatem Arm und Pferd
  • 1 preußischer Offizier mit separatem Arm und Pferd
  • 1 Offizier der preußischen Landwehr und Pferd
Bei den Figuren sind 4 Posen zu finden, wobei bei 3 Figuren die Posen durch die separaten Arme etwas variiert werden können. Bei den Pferden sind es 3 Posen.

The box contains 3 identical sprues. At one sprue there are 4 figures and 4 horses.

The figures: 

  • 1 Spanish officer with a separate arm and horse
  • 1 Russian officer with a separate arm and horse
  • 1 Prussian officer with a separate arm and horse
  • 1 officer of the Prussian Landwehr and horse
The Figures are shown in 4 poses, with 3 figures, the poses can be varied slightly by the separate arms. The horses are shown in 3 poses.










 

Die Modellierung sieht nicht schlecht aus, Gussgrate sind kaum zu finden. Meiner Meinung nach kann man mit diesem Set andere Figurensets durchaus sinnvoll ergänzen.

 

The modeling does not look bad, mould lines are hard to find. In my opinion, you can complement other figure set with this set quite useful.
   


With this in mind....

  2. I like the varying poses on the horses. This looks like a nice set and with men from different armies, should give you some variety and fun in your colour palette. Happy painting my friend!

    1. Fran I think they are very detailed in this scale. I have to do a uniform research for more information.

  6. Now you made me jealous that you already have this set! :-D

    Thanks for the review Bruno! It looks like a very nice set, but I think Hat is playing it very clever now. First they came with the seperate sets, marching, fighting and command, and now they make sets with seperate officers. To complete your armies you have to buy almost all the boxes. ;-)

    1. Agreed, it's a clever marketing strategy from HäT. On one hand you have specialised boxes like marching, command and so on on the other hand you have to buy more boxes. The advance for me is that if I want to show a marching column only I have to buy two sets (command and marching) and don't have action poses which I maybe don't need. So for me the strategy from HäT has advantages and disadvantages, depending on what I want to do.

    2. A friend and I do it this way! He buys a set and I buy a set and then we swap! Works fine and we both have the figures we want!

  7. A fascinating historical period (even for a fanatic of the Middle Ages like me). When I have a small culture on the colors of the uniforms of the time I would like to give it a try. I look forward to your work. Ciao Bruno!

  8. Hello Michele. Yes please give it a try. I will try the Middle Ages too. For me it's fun to mpaint the colorful uniforms of the Napoleonic era.
