The figures look great but the muskets look very "chunky and robust" to me. Is it just an optical illusion from the photography? Or is that how they really are?

Sorry, I'm not trying to be snarky! Just genuinely curious.

Roger, great review! I also received my KS and I am equally pleased with the figures. Littlearmies, I do not find the muskets overly chunky. They fit very well with the sculpting style, which is one of the best on the market  IMHO  :)

So the muskets and bayonets are chunky but certainly not overly so, as Traveller says they fit the minis really well. They have the advantage of not sapping off too easy too.

I've done both Kickstarters and will do any that follow.  Great figures from a good company.

Have to agree, I'm delighted with both Kickstarters, and I am on the lookout for the next one.

Spent the last couple of days in prep, basing and undercoating, and paint is about to get applied. Very much looking forward to painting these.
