Hey, Hey, Hey! Where's My Hat (Industrie)?

We're about a month to a month and a half out from Hat Industrie's latest batch of releases; E20. "Big deal.", says you. "Yarrr!", says I. Among the planned sets are Hat's first entries into the Seven Year's War: Prussian Infantry Marching and Prussian Infantry In Action. I have been waiting for these for a long time, and it is good to know the wait is almost over (and has paid off)!

If they are anything close to their Napoleonic Wars Grandson's version of Prussians Marching and In Action (See the latest Plastic Soldier Review) good times are a comin' for those of us who indulge in Tricorne era wargaming!

I hope that they made the molds for these extra-durable, because I plan to purchase a blue ton of these excellent figures! Bring on the Austrians, British, French, and the Am. Rev. figures! Whoo-Hoo! Woe to the Treasury. Woe! Woe! Woe!

Hats off to Hat Industrie for listening and supplying what their customers want.

I hope that they meet and exceed your expectations, sir.

Hopefully you'll post a bulletin when your first acquisition arrives - I dont keep an eye on HaT's production, but these sound like they might be worth investing a few florins in

Thanks Gents,

Just like Charles Dickens, I have "Great Expectations" for these guys. In some late breaking news, Hat's next release, E21 will have the SYW Prussian Command Set!

All the "Grant Style" wargaming regiments I ever dreamed of will soon be within my financial reach! Cue the Creepy Organ Music!
