Surely it would be relatively simple for Victrix to put out an RHA set? They could use pretty much the entire sprue from the RA set – only the crew would need to be changed. That and artwork for the box and bosh! Lovely new set that oodles of people would buy, for very little outlay

Box art

Our latest boxed set of 28mm hard-plastic miniatures VX0016 Napoleon's Middle Imperial Guard is almost with us. The boxes are with the printers, and we expect to start shipping orders by 12th November. You can start pre-ordering this fantastic set of figures from 29th October.

You get 60 figures wearing campaign dress of greatcoats and covered shakos for only £22.95 GBP RRP. There are pose options of marching, advancing and firing line, plus there are officers, drummers and standardbearers (two figure options for each command type). There are 64 heads in covered shakos, showing the variety and character of expression you have come to enjoy and expect in Victrix sets.

Middle Guard plastic figures

This figure set has a lot of versatility. We designed the heads to have the thistle-shaped plume, rather than just the pom-pom. This gives the figures a lot more flexibility to make other units of Napoleon's elite infantry on campaign. All you do is remove the top of the tuft to make the Middle Guard, Turin Velites, and some units of Line Chasseurs. By leaving the tuft on, you can make line grenadiers, line voltigeurs, tirailleurs, chasseurs and carabiniers.

Middle Guard painted figures

You will receive a free transfer sheet with every box you order on pre-order from 29th October to the 12th November. This applies to individual boxes or purchasing Middle Guard as part of multi-box deals. (Please note that all multi-box deals are post-free worldwide!)

Transfer sheet

The transfers have been designed by Steve of Little Big Men Studios, and are for the cartridge box covers and shako covers, as sometimes Imperial Eagles were painted on the front of the oilskin covers.
