How cool is this?:

Plastic Bavarians!
With most of the major players covered, I guess we'll see more of the allied nations being tooled up for plastic in the future. :D

If only there were some Napoleonic enthusiasts in Nagoya. :cry:

Well there’s one enthusiast out here in Chiba. Nearly bought a collection of Grenadier a Chevalier on a whim tonight. I’ve been looking at the Bavarian collection in the Perry line for years and nearly pulled the trigger once on collecting them. A plastic kit for the Bavarians is very welcome.

And speaking of plastic kits and Napoleonic players; I hope Komura-san has seen these.

Edit: actually these are being described as “resin” models. (?)

Yeah, I'm not sure why Warlord have done these in resin. It could be a cost Vs. expected demand thing, plastic moulds are very expensive. Or it could be a Corona issue. Warlord have been using a Chinese company for their plastics for a while I believe. Resin is easier to do in-house.

I thought this was pretty funny, (and terrifying). So now all the Napoleonic grognards can argue historical minutia with an algorithm all day. Yeah, it's a funny toy now, but this Chat technology is going to do to writing, media and communication what Henry Ford's assembly line did to manufacturing.
