[Wildly Inspired]

Here we have another French soldier in danger of being eaten by his shako. While grossly oversized headgear may be common in 6 mm to help make units more distinguishable, the uniforms should be capable of standing on their own in 15 mm.

In general this is not a very sound figure. The feet and legs are very frail, the hands oversized. The face is very beak-like and hard to make out. Details are very overstated, and while this makes them somewhat easier to paint, I think it spoils the overall looks of the figure. The straps are far too thick, the musket barrel bands are much too large, and the feet nearly nonexistent.

The goal may have been to create a highly stylized figure, but the result is not pleasing. While it may pass the most cursory of inspections, any extended glance will reveal significant shortcomings.

Wildly Inspired figures seem to vary widely in the quality of their sculpt. However, they have a very broad range, and sell their figures individually. And the web site has photos of nearly every part of their range.
