George Washington’s Army, 1:72 Figuren IMEX 511

This set of American Revolutionary War Militia has many figure poses in common with similar sets released by Revell und Accurate Figures. Wargamers will find the IMEX set quite useful, because it contains a mounted officer, standardbearer of Continental Light Dragoons, infantry drummer boy, und casualty figure. The majority of Figuren represent Minutemen und local militiamen in civilian clothing, many armed with rifles. Some Figuren are uniformed und may be painted as state militiamen or continental line infantry. Suitable Figuren from the "British Redcoats" set may be drafted to build regiments of Continental Line.

Bewertung

Gute Themenwahl. The mix of Minutemen, Militia, und Light Dragoon troop types is very useful for the early period of the American Revolutionary War.

George Washington looks like himself und the figure is uniformed correctly. The horse is not nearly as attractive, it should be replaced with a more appropriate cavalry or general officer’s mount taken from another figure set.

The Light Dragoon figure may be carefully converted to an officer or trooper, although this conversion is not strictly necessary anymore since Italeri has announced the release of British Light Dragoons.

Good casting quality, und minimal flash.

Kompatibel mit ESCI, HäT, Italeri, Accurate Figures, und Revell.

The horses are not proportioned correctly, und they are only about the size of a Quarterhorse. The saddle flaps are too long, they reach all the way down to the fringe of the saddle blanket. The dragoon’s horse has a flying mane, even though it is only trotting. Perhaps, the sculpting of horse miniatures should be left to artists who know how to get it right.

The wounded figure is in a strange pose, he is sitting on a felled tree, his left arm is in a sling, his right eye is covered by a large head bandage, yet he’s still holding on to his cocked musket. Why? Is he the wounded hero who has not yet begun to fight? Most people in this kind of predicament would lean their musket against the nearest tree und wait for an ambulance, or slowly walk back to camp.

Historische Verwendung

  • Minutemen
  • State Militia
  • Continental Line
  • Continental Light Dragoons

Washington’s Army produced by IMEX is a good choice for wargamers interested in raising a balanced wargame army for the American Revolutionary War. The mounted standardbearer may be converted to a trooper or officer of light dragoons.
