NEW- PLASTIC PRUSSIAN INFANTRY 1870-71
28mm Sculpted by Michael Perry
We are releasing 2 boxes of plastic Prussian Infantry to start our new Franco-Prussian War range. Both have the same frames of figures in them but they are in different ratios. All figures have 4 head variants including the 1860 pattern and 1867 pattern picklehaube, forage caps and Landwehr shakos. Bases and an information sheet are included.
We should be getting in the first boxes this Thursday (thanks to the speedy work of the peeps at Renedra) and start shipping orders next week.
Prussian Infantry advancing (PRU 1) - contains mainly advancing figures with a choice of marching or at 'the trail' (this was the most common drill position for assault). It also has 10 figures skirmishing in firing and loading poses as well as a command frame.
Prussian Infantry skirmishing (PRU 2) - this contains mainly the skirmish frames so that you can form an irregular firing line. As the French Chassepot rifle was superior to the Prussian Dreyse, firing lines tended to be open order with infantry taking cover where possible. There are also 2 advancing frames included as well as a command.
39 figures are included in each box plus casualties.
