There was a lot of disappointment when this set came out. The artwork in the catalogue showed uniformed men of the Continental Army, but IMEX actually produced the old Accurate American Militia set with a few changed figures.
The Accurate set was a very good one (see Accurate American War of Independence American Militia), with plenty of good poses and an authentic range of costume and weaponry. Particularly in the early part of the war, militia units were a considerable part of Washington's army, so this set is not exactly mislabelled, and some of the figures could be painted to represent men in uniform. To even the balance up a bit more IMEX have withdrawn a couple of militia poses and added some regular army ones. These are the drummer boy, the wounded man sitting on a log, the mounted officer (who could be Washington himself) and a mounted standard bearer who seems to be a light dragoon. The net result is quite a mix, but still basically a militia set without the necessary poses to form up ranks for a formal battle (or wargame).
The new figures are up to the standard of the rest, and match them perfectly. All the figures are accurately portrayed, with basically civilian clothing supplemented by varying amounts of 'military' items, as it was in reality. Detail is superb and crisply cast, with no flash at all, and the animation and natural look of these figures cannot be faulted.
The main drawback with this set is that it is mostly existing figures presented in a new box. The new poses are welcome additions, but this is really a militia set that does not allow a proper portrayal of the armies that fought under Washington. That alone loses it several points.
Note Recently released copies of this set contain the original Accurate set of figures, thereby missing the new figures discussed here. The box sometimes describes the new figures even when the old figures are inside, so be careful when buying this product that you know what it is you are getting!
