Time is almost up for Crowdfunding * Hat 1/32 Seven Years War Austrians

The Crowdfunding for this project started in the beginning of February. They said that they would keep this open for 3 months to fund this project. I hope that they got enough support to produce these figures even if they didn’t make it to stage 10. These figures have the potential to fill a lot of gaps with my collection. Besides being used as Austrians for the SYW, that could also be used as Hessian mercenaries too for the American Revolution. If you have not pledged yet, click on this link Hat 1/32 Seven Years War Austrians.

A good sign is that they have made the prototypes to create the molds. 

 The design of these figures are really good. It will be a bargain to get 18 figures for the cost of around $15.00. Even if you are not the biggest fan of this subject it will help support the future production of 1/32 figures from Hat.

Barzso & LOD are producing 4 more American Revolutionary sets later this year. The Yorktown set is based on Redoubt #10. The British defended this Redoubt against the Americans. Redoubt #9 was defended by a mix of Hessian & British troops that was attacked by French forces. The Hat Austrians could help fill in as Hessian mercenaries. 

Here are some pictures showing the Hat Prussians they did years ago. They blend in very well with the Barzso figures. I think the new Austrians should be the same. So if you want to see these figures made, pledge here Hat 1/32 Seven Years’ War Austrians

Hat 1/32 7YW Austrians prototypes sizing

Here is the latest update on the Hat 1/32 Seven Years War Austrians. They posted some pictures of the prototypes. I hope this is a good sign that maybe we shall see these sets produced. The Crowdfunding 1/32 7 Years War Austrians is still active. If you have not pledged to get these sets made, please pledge now.

“Comparison with 1/32 Wurttembergers. Production figures should have 4% shrinkage and thinner base.”

 

I wrote an article about this in an earlier post, you can read and see more pictures here Crowdfunding * Hat 1/32 Seven Years War Austrians.

Besides these figures being used as Seven Years War Austrians, some of these figures could be used as Hessian Musketeers that served in the British Army during the American Revolution.  The Barzso/LOD Revolutionary figures sets are coming and so is the Yorktown playset.  These will be a welcome addition to reinforce your troops.

Toy Soldier Preview ~ LOD Enterprises Barzso Playsets Revolutionary War Infantry Sets

Last week Ken Ciak of LOD Enterprises Toy Soldiers shared with us some pictures of the prototypes of the new American Revolution Infantry sets. This is a joint venture with Barzso Playsets. There are 4 new sets that will be released later this year. The sets include British Regulars, British Light Infantry, American Regulars and American Light Infantry. Each set will include 8 different poses. The figures will be the same scale as the earlier sets of Colonial Militia and British Grenadiers that were done by Barzso and now produced by LOD.

Click on the pictures above to get a closer look at the pictures. Below are some pictures of the prototypes and figures from the older British Grenadiers & American Colonial Militia sets.

The color of the British Regulars set will be the same as the British Grenadier set. The color of the American Regulars set will be the same as the Colonial Militia set.

The color of the light infantry sets for both sides will be a slightly lighter shade of red and blue.

The action poses of the British Regulars are really nice.

The British Light Infantry set is a nice surprise. The action poses are really good too. 

Queen's Rangers

With some customizing we can have some Queen’s Rangers.

American Continental

The American Regulars looks really good too. Looks like they are ready to assault the redoubts at Yorktown.

Lastly the American Light Infantry is filled with action too.

These sets will be make a fine addition to the earlier Revolutionary sets. There should be a Yorktown playset later this year. And so far by the looks of it, it should be epic. When you combine the new sets with the older sets you will start will over 45 different poses to go with the future Barzso/LOD Yorktown playset. And for those of us that can customize figures, we have a lot to work with to create new poses. 

On a different note, Hat is still having the crowdfunding for SYW Austrians and they would make great Hessian Musketeers for the British Army.  Musketeer, Hessian Regiment Von Bose, Yorktown 1781

Crowdfunding * Hat 1/32 Seven Years War Austrians

A few days ago I was reading about Hat Toy Soldiers at the Hobby Bunker forum. They have a few polls about figures in 1/32 scale. They are now trying to produce few sets of  Seven Years War Austrians by having a crowdfunding. These sets deserve to be made. I hope they get enough support to make this happen.

A few years ago I purchased about 10 boxes of the Seven Years War Prussians. The Prussians are really nice and are very hard to find these days. I have been using these guys as Hessian troops to go with my Barzso American Revolution figures.

 

 

 

Here are some digitized samples of the Seven Year War Austrians below.

 Set A – Fusiliers

 

SYWA3

Set B – Grenadiers

SYWA1

Set C – Command

 

The sets look really nice. I have been waiting a long time to add some more Soldiers that could be used as British or French Soldiers for the French & Indian War. You can build a nice army with few boxes of these guys. So head over to the crowdfunding page and order a few boxes so they will release these sets this time. Maybe we will see some British or French Infantry in the future?

I found some more pictures, these figures look like some of Hat’s best work in this the 1/32 scale.
