Armies in Plastic - French and Indian Wars - an appreciation

Have you ever made a pact with yourself - 'if anyone produces X in Y scale I am buying them'? I was like that for plastic 1/32 French and Indian war. I would have bought them anyway as I supported the concept. But are they any good?
There is basically four sets. Rogers Rangers and two sets of Northeastern Woodland Indians. These are based on John Jenkins designs' originals. There is also French regulars. These are not so good but acceptable and they kind of look the part. French were adapted and developed from original figures produced by Frontline Figures.

   Of these 4 sets the Woodland Indians are the most useful. 18 Action Figures - 6 poses in each set. Can equally be used with American Revolution, Pontiac, or frontier settler type scenarios.  Well sculpted in believable poses they seem historically accurate from what I know and what more could one ask for? No bow armed warriors sadly but other than that top marks. Obviously these could be used on either side as loyal Mohawk or perfidious Hurons. 
   The Rangers are the last ones I bought and very good they are too. I don't know much about Rangers but they look good - not Northwest Passage Rangers but proper ones with scots bonnets.
