I purchased in 1997 all of Frontline Figures' "The Thin Red Line" of the Crimean War 1854 series of the Russian cavalry brigade attacking the 93rd British Army Highlanders under General Colin Powell, except for two of the Russian cavalry sets that did not come in with the order. I decided I had enough already and did not wait for the last two sets. While I have gone over to just getting K&C sets nearly all the time since 1999 or 2000 I still like these figures which I got at a good price from my local toy soldier dealer Bill Schommer. Ah, I only wish I could get such good prices now! All figures are in gloss.
