A paucity of posts reflects the hobby falling down the priority list. Sigh!
Them Perry twins sure are busy
As is their way the Perry twins of Perry Miniatures fame have been busy. From amongst a raft of announcements two of their “projects” have been selected as suitable for reporting here.
1. Plastic Napoleonic allied cavalry. Two separate boxes of them are “in progress” with no release date as yet released. A box of Russian uhlans …
… and perhaps more interestingly a box that can create either Prussian or Russian dragoons …
2. Two new Napoleonic ranges have been announced – 1806 Prussians and 1806-09 Saxons.
von Peter himself has always thought that the 1806 Prussians would make a fine looking army though he is not likely to go there. His nascent(!) 28mm Napoleonic collection is of an 1813 ilk and he already has Seven Years War Prussians that in many ways are similar to those of 1806.

Eagles of Empire Miniatures
Eagles of Empire Miniatures are a company who up to now seem to have focussed on later nineteenth century conflicts, ie. the Franco-Prussian War. But they have now diversified with a range of 28mm 1812 Napoleonic figures. This they have managed in conjunction with the Russian Avanpost Miniatures.
The figures are cast in resin and appear to come as sets of 9 skirmishing infantry £16.00, 18 infantry £29.00, 6 cavalry £29.00 or artillery piece with 4 gunners £13.50.
von Peter himself has no idea how these figures compare size wise with other manufacturers wares. The expectation is that the range will be expanded in 2021.
And of course it is the festive season with Christmas 2020 recently celebrated and the New Year only just consummated. A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. And in these COVID-19 times please take the greatest care out there.
Until we meet again …
