The New Releases Continue Apace With Another New Range Online Now!

The Risorgimento (rising again) was a movement in the 19th Century aiming to unify the Italian states into a single Kingdom of Italy. After the Napoleonic Wars, rule of these states had been restored to Austria, a move opposed by many. After the failure of liberal and republican revolutions in 1848 (1st Italian War of Independence), leadership of the unification movement passed to Piedmont. With French help, the Piedmontese defeated the Austrians in 1859 (2nd Italian War of Independence), and united most of Italy under their rule by 1861. The annexation of Venetia in 1866 (3rd Italian War of Independence), and papal Rome in 1870, marked the final unification of Italy, and hence the end of the Risorgimento period.

Our range covers all of the troop types across these wars, with infantry in tunic for the first two wars, and in greatcoats for the later period. The grenadiers in bearskin can be used up to 1859, at which point they switched to the same uniform as the line infantry. Cavalry switched from lances to sabres and carbines over that same period.

We'd like to thank our friend Fabio in Italy for all of his help with this range. His reference material has been invaluable in getting the details right!

We've got some flags coming soon for these armies, so keep an eye out for those as well.
