Between you and me, did you have to buy 3 sets to have 3 mousquetières, or did they change their idiotic packaging?
The set now comes as a set of 6, one drummer, standard bearer, offocer and 3 marching. I would have prefered a command set with a staff sergeant and whistle player added and a marching set of 10 - 12 marching.ReplyDelete
