Black Powder Epic Battles: British Highlanders & Riflemen – 25,00£

Wellington’s Allied army was a colourful mix of nationalities and troop types. None were more exotic-looking than the three regiments of Highlanders at the Battle of Waterloo.

With the contents of this plastic boxed set you can field all three of the Highland units – the 42nd ‚Black Watch‘, the 79th Cameron Highlanders and the 92nd Gordon Highlanders. The Highland units had won a reputation for tough fighting in the Peninsular campaign and fought well at Quatre Bras and Waterloo on the following day. They are each commanded by a smartly dressed brigade commander on horseback.

No British army is complete without the splendid Rifle Brigade! Three battalions of the 95th fought at Waterloo in their trademark dark green uniforms. Their efficiency with the Baker rifle was well known to the French, who really did not like to face them! The vast majority of the three units fought in line and square at Waterloo, some famously deployed in skirmish order in the sandpit next to La Haye Sainte. These figures can also be painted to portray the brave German defenders of that vital farmhouse. Finally, we have three 5.5″ howitzers in support from the Royal Artillery, lobbing shell-after-shell high over the heads of their troops and onto the French lines.

This plastic set provides enough models to field a complete brigade of three Highlander infantry regiments of 80 men each, 24 skirmishing 95th Rifles, a 3-gun Royal Artillery 5.5-inch howitzer battery and three mounted Highlander brigade commanders.

Contents:

  • 3 x Epic Battles: Napoleonic British Highlander & Riflemen infantry plastic sprues.
  • 3 x Epic Battles: plastic base sprues.
  • 1 x Full-colour Napoleonic British flag leaflet.

Black Powder Epic Battles: French Middle & Old Guard – 25,00£

Napoleon created the Imperial Guard as an army within an army. To gain access to its hallowed ranks was the dream of many French soldiers. Better pay, food, uniforms and a swagger that carried them all over Europe – it was a post of great honour and they worshipped their Emperor. They were far from being palace guards however as long and active service made them crack soldiers who could be relied upon to get the job done.

This plastic set contains enough troops to field three Guard battalions (80 soldiers in each) with accompanying mounted officers. Old Guard are recognizable by the brass plate on front of their bearskin hats and the rear patch atop them. The Middle Guard bearskins didn’t carry the brass plate or rear patch so these can be painted over as if fur. We have added a few extra heads; those who wish to further differentiate their units can replace some of them with the shako or the bonnet to convey the poorer supplied Middle Guard although it isn’t mandatory!

Also included are units of Marines of the Guard (30 soldiers) and Engineers of the Guard (30 soldiers). These add a further dash of colour and variety to the French army. To cover the Guard in the attack Napoleon fielded ‚His lovely daughters‘, large 12-pounder cannon, crewed by excellent gunners and which could reach out further than most Allied guns. A dangerous foe indeed…

  • Immer wieder das Gleiche:
    Neue Epic-Minis tauchen auf, es folgen kurze Zweifel, ob die Investition in 28mm sich jetzt als Fehler rausstellt und dann die Selbstversicherung: Klar, dieser neue 12mm Maßstab ist für reines Wargaming sicherlich die bessere Wahl, aber 28mm sieht (für mich) viel besser aus und macht modellbauerisch mehr Spaß – und mal ehrlich, zumindest bei mir geht es mittlerweile zu 95% um den Bastelanteil. Von daher: Schöne Option, aber nicht für mich.
