A few more napoleonics made their way to me last week, with my order from Perry Miniatures arriving. I ordered two metal sets: BH18 British 95th Rifle command, for my rifle company, and BG30 British Light Infantry command advancing, to command the light company of my planned battalion.
I do belive that this will be the first *ever* picture taken of the BH30 British Light Infantry command advancing set from Perry Miniatures – I searched and searched prior to buying them to see if I could find one, but couldn’t. If I’m wrong, feel free to let me know!
So, here we go:
The backpacks on the metal miniatures are more rounded and less defined than those from the Perry plastics (which I’ve reviewed previously), although the sizes are about the same. The shakos are a tiny bit shorter and wider than the plastic ones as well. Barring those two differences, they’d fit in perfectly with the plastic British infantry made by Perry.
The sculpts are great quality and detail wise. I had a little bit of a problem with one of the Riflemen Officer’s swords, which was horribly twisted and bent and required some sculpting to fix. Overall, I’d have no hesitation recommending these figures.
