Croats of the 1. (Karlstadter) Likaner Grenz-Regiment.

Evaluation

Excellent choice of subject. HEROICS & ROS Croats may be painted as Austrian, Russian, or Prussian irregulars of the period.

Suitable poses. The advancing and firing figures are beautifully sculpted, despite their small size, and they look very realistic when painted.

Very good casting quality, the figures are practically free of flash and mould lines.

Many wargamers use 1:300 scale figures to fight large battles on a small playing surface. Others maintain the suggested base sizes of a particular rule set, but mount smaller figures on them to achieve the more realistic look of massed formations.

Compatible with buildings, terrain, and model railroad accessories in ZZ scale.

Historical Employment

  • Imperial Grenzers
  • Pandurs von der Trenck
  • Green Croats of the Prussian Freikorps von Kleist
  • Russian Pandurs

HEROICS & ROS Grenzers are prefect for 18th Century simulation games. Figures in 1:300 scale require less space, and they are easy to paint en masse.
