It is a very exciting time for us collectors this time of the year. The Chicago Toy Soldier Show is less than a few weeks away. Usually the toy companies will release new products or show some prototypes at the show. Last week HaT finally re-stocked the Seven Years War Prussian sets in 1/32 scale. These sets will be available this month(September). I have been looking for these for almost 5 years now. I really like these figures. Hopefully they will release the new 1/32 scaled Seven Years War Austrians soon.

The sets are sold as Marching, Action and Command.

With these sets you can change hats of the figures to make them look as either Musketeers, Fusiliers or Grenadiers.

You can get these sets for around $15.00 or less.

Besides being used as Prussians these figures can be easily used as Hessian mercenaries that served for the British in the American Revolution. The mix well with the new LOD/Barzso figures.

I like the Grenadier hats the best. The details on those hats are really nice and have a nice shape to them. Other plastic Grenadier figures that have been made over the years have some weird shaped hats.

Also this week ATS Toy Soldiers has a sale of 20% off your order with a purchase of 2 items or more! You can check that out over at ATS Toy Soldiers.

I was going to write up a post this weekend about some vintage figures that I got last month. I will most likely get to that at the end of the month or in October. Instead of relaxing this weekend, I went to work on Sunday. 

Next week I will have an exciting blog post. It will be another interview. On Saturday I did an interview over the phone with someone that I have been wanted to do for a long time now. That is it for now. Thanks for reading.

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
