What a great disappointment from the makers Waterloo 1815 for their “Prussian Officers and high Staff 1813-15” figures. It seems that they are not 20 mm but 28 mm in height. On the PSR site (Plastic Soldier Review) the pictures of the figures look really good and I think that there is a way around having two Blucher's in a box by taking his pipe arm away and putting a sword arm in its place. The company, Waterloo 1815 seem to made big mistakes with a few of their Napoleonic set lately, like the Box AP100 of “Dutch/Belgian Carabiniers 1815” in which there are just six troopers and horses all made in metal. I just wish that HaT had made these instead

At the beginning of last week, Waterloo 1815 have announced that they are going to produce a Prussian Officers and High Staff 1813-1815 box number AP058. The box contains 12 mounted figures and horses and they are made in a tan colour plastic.
The disappointing thing about this set is that the mounted figures come in 6 different poses on two identical sprue frames, which means you get two Blucher’s etc. The horses come in a couple of different poses with one in a standing position. The figures look really great but for just under £11 UK Pounds per box, I think I will have to see these before I even think about buying them.
