OK, I admit, just to beat Tango to it, but you do have to admire the Perrys for taking on the "less glamorous units".

Latest is six new codes for scruffy Prussian Reserve type units. One example below. Note that, as infantry, they can use the rolled coat/cloak over the left shoulder, indeed they have to. But if they were scruffy cavalry reserve…that is different

The rest on;

They will be available for "Discussion" shortly as that is the best hit style forum, I solemnly predict. Come on Tango (Grin)

Weep. The brothers (we cannot us the T word in our house, with two sons born one minute apart on St Patrick's Day) still cannot do Les Grenadiers a Cheval of La Garde or Les Dragons la meme in the rig we all want to see. But they can do Scandinavian Light cavalry, Dutch Infantry…..

Those or nice! However I already have almost 1300 Calpe figures.

I'll be honest. Shown unpainted I would have placed these at the Alamo. The chap extreme left, top pic, struck me that way.

They are nice but are they what folk are crying out for? (Of course the answer may well be just so, I admit)

There are figures in shakos with that white circle, which I seem to recall was a distinguishing feature from 1812?

Gee, I was just converting some of their plastic Prussians into Reserve infantry.
Was hoping they would do these in plastic with a variety of headgear, some in trousers, different packs, etc.

Yes the white circle was for 1812. Was the Reserve infantry even formed then ?

They were promised as plastic figures years ago, but never materialised. I even recall seeing the masters on the "Work in Progress" thing that they used to update regularly (pre Facebook of course)

Well done and thanks. I can well imagine the investment needed for plastic figures made them a poor commercial prospect, but much cheaper in metal.

Still, as the website said, these would have had much conversion potential. They still look awfully like early 19th C US troops to me, for example, in the low peaked cap.
