Bloody Hell
More purchases in the offing.
I get back from camping 600km from home to see this!
I will need a new mortgage to buy all those russian infantry after getting my fix of Prussians! Let alone the confederates, the austrians…

For those people who couldn't attend Salute, we have a brief line-up of our new 3ups that were on show. This is just an overview - we'll be going into more detail with more photos on each set in the coming week. We hope you like them. Please note that some parts of these figures are held on by blue-tac, which might show occasionally.

Austrian Napoleonic (German) Infantry 1808-15

Austrians

All the figures in the box will have both helmets and shakos, so they cover the mid-to-late-war period. You'll be able to equip all the figures in the box with either. They're wearing the 1808 pattern jacket, which is used up to the end of the war and beyond. There will be 48 figures in the box. There will be other box sets in this series.

Russian Napoleonic Infantry (summer dress) 1809-15

Russians

There will be enough early shakos and later kiwers to equip all the figures in the box with either. The earlier corded 1807 pattern shakos were worn alongside the 1812 kiwer during the 1812 Russian campaign, as reforms took a while to complete. There will be two boxes of these - one infantry (with elites), one grenadier - as there are so many variants of headgear.

Prussian Napoleonic Reserve Infantry 1813-15

Prussian Res

These are represented in their 1813 basic grey uniforms and minimal kit, although some reserve regiments still wore this uniform in 1815. Both peaked caps and shakos will be included for all figures. The command wore the regular Prussian uniforms.

Mounted Men-at-Arms 1450-1500

War of the Roses

There will be twelve horsemen (four different bodies/armor types, with bridle arm attached). There will also be a variety of weapons, including couched lance, mace, axe, etc. The horses are in three pieces with interchangeable body halves plus separate horse armor.

American War of Independence British Infantry 1776-81

AWI

This will be the first in a series of AWI plastics. American militia and Continentals are also in the pipeline. Only four of the five figures for the infantry sprue are shown here. Formal cocked, half-cocked hats and cut-down 'Saratoga' caps will be included for all in the box.

ACW Confederate Infantry 1862-65

ACW

These mid/late-war Confederates will be represented at the charge or at 'right shoulder shift', as with the Zouave set. Only three of the five figures from the infantry sprue are shown here.

There are no release dates on any of these at the moment.
