I really don't like this trend of making separate boxes with only slightly different content. Until now I thought it was mostly Fireforge who did it.

Lets hope it does not catch on.

Quite disappointing. I hope the release doesn't discourage Perry from doing their own.

At first i thought perhaps they only had one mould machined up and the extra sprue section was added/removed via blocks.

But no, It's clear from the tiny differences that they actually machined two seperate moulds for these two near identical kits...

That's a massive amount of money to spend to make the same thing twice! someone In the planning department done messed up!
never trust a horse, they make a commitment to shoes that no animal should make.

Sounds like what they did with french chasseurs and lancers. They grew on me when I had the actual sprues in hand until I noticed the lack of elite options.

Don't get me wrong, I quite like warlord's plastic range in that they offer plastic alternatives that match reasonably well with Perrys. You just can't get by with them alone, when a bit more thought in the process could have resulted in a much better product (like the number of core and elite miniatures / packaging with their french infantry).
