Whilst I understand the reasoning here.
I’ve always thought. What’s the point!
You may as well churn out blank chess pawns.
For that very reason, it has always put me off Napoleonic gaming.
Too much emphasis upon “They marched in line” and not enough reality. The successful troops were in skirmishing order the moment bullets started flying. A thing called Survival instinct kicks in no matter what ‘Your high command states’.
The problem with real event accounts and the ‘Supposed to…’ ones are generally told the from too vastly different perspective.
The rank and file tending to differ greatly from the Generals and Commanders. The Generals trying to slant the narrative to having the best and most disciplined troops obeying every order to the letter. The bragging rights!!! But that was not realty.
So when I see or hear the words “They walked in line” I apply the very large caveat.
Battles would have been over in minutes, if everyone walked robotically at thousand man volleys or grape shot cannon fire. Troops following up, would not have been to negotiate the heaps of dead in order to engage in close combat due to the number of heaped up corpses.
These facts tend to be overlooked all too often by those whom buy into the false narrative of They walked in line.
Sorry guys but these sort of kits remind me too much of the crap spoken about the Napoleonic War.
But keep up the great work and produce Crimean War British Grenadier Guards. Please.
