New Historical Napoleonic Russian Miniatures from Warlord Games

In keeping with our historical news, Warlord Games has released some sweet new miniatures to add to your Napoleonic Russian forces! These are created for use with the Black Powder game. If you're not familiar, Black Powder rules helps recreate the great battles of the 18th and 19th centuries. The game gives the fundamentals of warfare such as how to command troops, movement on the battlefield, the effects of musketry and artillery and the role of morale when getting pounded by Black Powder weapons.

Pictured below is the 1809-1815 Russian Line Infantry box set.  The infantry wear the taller shako while the Grenadiers wear the outlandishly large plumes.  The box set is designed to allow you to field one regiment of Russian infantry The variants in the box allow you to use both musketeer and grenadiers along with a command section to lead them into battle. They also provide a selection of flags from a number of regiments so you can get them into battle right away. You'll find 4 metal and 28 plastic miniatures in the box set.

Recruitment was never a problem for the Russian army.The army offered a steady income and regular meals so any hardship they may suffer was an improvement for many. With that in mind, you can recruit this wonderful Napoleonic Russian Command unit to lead your regiments. Each set contains a mounted officer, officer on foot and a musician.

The miniatures come with separate heads and right arms allowing lots of variation in your units. These are compatible with the plastics and the other metal sets giving you immense scope for individuality.

With these great miniatures available you should be able to bolster your forces near Borodino before the French Grande Armée gets there!

As always, Have a Great Battle!
