I prefer to mix prussians and austrians from Revell. Reason: it's cheap and the result doesn't look too bad.
It's somehow clear to me, that some manufacturers wanted to fill the gap. Revell produced figures for german regiments only. So it was perhaps a good idea to make hungarians and marching fusiliers, because all Revell fusiliers are firing.
The number of different poses of the artillery men and riders is impressive. Zvezda or other more modern manufacturers would maybe include heavy artillery as well. But that's it: three 3-pdr. guns with more than enough of crew to handle the canons plus a proper 4-horse-team.
4 horsemen in every set. I waited very long for These sets. But I didn't know that they will include 4 figures only. Perhaps I will purchase some later, when I'm rich or eager enough. You need not less than 3 sets for 6 bases!
By the way: Germania anounced to produce dragoons in 2016 too!
This set has some very good and bad sides. The horses look very nice. But there are today some problems with reissues most significantly the mould of the horses! The dragoons come all without bearts. Reason is that the figures depict the regiment de Ligne during the 7yw. There are no Grenadiers included. The most important problem is with the carbines. All are in a completely wrong Position. Therefore if you are a purist or pedant you may prefer to use the figures as prussian dragoons during the 1740s...
Comments: There are many sets you can use for 18th century austrian cavalry. I take for example the Zvezda-dragoons of Peter the Great and Charles XII. as austrian dragoons because the position of the rifles is better than in the Revell-box and there were some regiments without lapels.
I use British Hussars (Napoleonic or Krim-War) from Esci as Austrian Hussars (www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=105). The horses are horrible, even if you trim of some parts of the saddles etc., but it's always the same with Esci.
I used Strelets Riders of Charles XII. as austrian cuirassiers (www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=825). The number of different poses is realy impressive. But the engineering of the figures is poor. The horses are to small and the riders don't fit the horses.
This threat is partly for me to remember all manufacturers on the market. On the other side it's for english wargamers who maybe don't know all these german manufacturers today on the market. I will add to every type of troops my point of view. Today there are many sets in 1/72 which are even more expensive than 28-mm-sets. But if you prefer the elegant look of classic-Revell-figures like the austrian artillery you will find a lot of nice sets to fall in love with... Germania produce now many sets which are elegant and fit very well along with the old output from Revell!
Es marschierten drei Regimenter wohl über den Rhein...
These six sets are including 2 sets of command, 2 sets of marching, 1 set of advancing and 1 set of wounded soldiers. The style is more the style of toys with large heads, hands and weapons. Details are often clear but some like swords of the drummers are missing. I think that the figures are OK if you just want to have some more poses and officers etc.. I'm not convinced to form complete units with such figures. But it's a question of your taste.
These sets seam to have the inclination to reflect the French Reglement.
I purchased some command sets. I had different problems to get the flagpole fitting into the hands. But it's much to do on all figures before starting to paint. Not to my taste, because I'm not familiar with all this work.
French hussars, officers, musician, standardbearer with different horses. They have all mirliton caps except the musicians.
Comments: I used swedish and Russian dragoons of the GNW by Zvezda and Austrian dragoons by Revell as French horse. Conversions are sometimes difficult sometimes easy. Today I used Austrian Dragoons from Revell for French horse too.
Revell Prussian Hussars as Bercheny-hussars are looking really well, although the headgear is maybe wrong for the WAS but fine for the SYW.
