Finally varnished the first four riflemen for my British napoleonics:
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:
Here’s my review and comparison of the 28mm plastic napoleonic British infantry, produced by Perry (the grey on the left) and Victrix (the yellowish on the right). There’s already a couple of comparisons around (such as here, here, and here) but I figured I’d post up my experience with a box of each anyway.
So, after watching Sharpe over the Christmas break, I kind of got a bit hooked on the Napoleonics era stuff. Since I’m not starting any new GW stuff (mainly due to the prices), and I’m not buying any new Infinity stuff since I’ve got more than enough for games now, I needed a new project.
Hence, Napoleonics. I’m unlikely to ever actually play a game with them (unless someone else also gets roped in), but I really like the look so I’m doing up some British infantry as a painting project. Of course, I still have to finish my CSM Adeptus Mechanicus and Infinity, but you can never have too many miniatures!
I started off with the above box of Perry British Infantry, and as I’m a Sharpe fan I’ll be doing the South Essex with attached riflemen from the 95th as they appear in the series.
