I trailed a few shots of the fusilier regiments earlier in the year, but I've had a chance to finish the tricorn wearing fellows over the last couple of weeks.
These figures are from the Strelets "British Infantry in Attack" box. You can see the basic figures here: link, and there's a review here: link. I bought the first box from my local model shop, as I hadn't realised they'd been released, and I like to support them when I can. I then picked up a couple of boxes at a show to enable me to produce coherent units.
First off, here's what I don't like about the figures. The line troops are good, mostly clean, castings, but the officer sprue is a mess, with loads of flash. The poses are a bit of a mix, with some that you really can't use in a battalion in a sensible way (I've used them anyway), and there are way too many grenadier/fusilier figures (and too many officers with spontoons). They'd have been better off with a separate box. On balance I would have preferred to have bought the "Firing Line" box. In future I will be buying the "French Fusiliers" box, as they have no grenadiers, and all the poses are usable.
What do I like about them? Well, the detail is nice and clear and well defined, the firing/charging poses are good. The officers look good once cleared up, and the fusilier figures aren't that bad either. They're also way easier (and cheaper) to get hold of compared to the Airfix figures I normally use.
It may upset the purists, but my main concern is that the hats are right, and I'll happily swap figures from different armies for this period. After all, my core figures are Airfix Washington's Army and Waterloo French Cavalry with hat swaps.
What this means is that mostly my "British Infantry in Attack" aren't painted as British. I've got 8 battalions out of them so far (I may paint up an ersatz grenadier battalion), with one Dutch, four French, two Scots and one English. The Scots are the fusilier battalions.
