Perry Miniatures American War of Independence British Infantry - New Release
These Sweet British Infantry from 1775-1783 are the first in the American War of Independence plastic series from Perry Miniatures. They will be producing American militia and Continentals box sets too.
This box contains center company men (or hat men) of a typical British regiment for the war. The regiments flank companies were normally detached to for combined light and grenadier battalions. They are represented in cut-down coats for campaign and come with three hat variants; the typical cocked hat, the uncocked hat or board brimmed hat and the ‘Saratoga cap’, cut down from the cocked hat.
They can be assembled either at the charge or at the trail which is probably the most common drill position when operating in wooded countryside. The also wear the typical gaiter-trousers or American
trousers which became very popular in the war.
The officers are in simple undress coats favored on campaign. As always, the Perry brothers never fail to deliver.
The command sprue, as you can see, allows for a variety of equipment configurations. It also contains two British casualties.
The Infantry sprue seen here contains all the variants mentioned above. The three hat variations are all moulded separate from the heads. With some careful trimming, you can wind up with a plethora of leftover rifles.
The AW 200 box contains: 36 figures plus 2 casualties, units bases, full painting guide and flags. Now we just need to wait for the American Militia and Continentals!
While your waiting, pick up some additional British casualties!
