Up The Soldier Count With Add On Armies For The AWI From Warlord

November 9, 2015 by stvitusdancern

With the recent release of the of the incredible Liberty or Death! battle set who could possibly think that they need more troops after all the set includes an astonishing 300+ miniatures!

Liberty & Death

However, there are those of you who will think that is just not enough for some of the bigger battles of the AWI (American War of Independence). Knowing this Warlord Games is already ahead of you with some additional army boxes.

British Starter Army

They are now offering a British Starter Army that will get you an additional 163 miniatures, the set includes the following:

  • 120 British line Infantry including full command
  • 30 Hessian Mercenaries
  • 8 Woodland Indians
  • 1 Cannon and Crew
  • 1 Mounted Commander
  • 1 Casualty figure
  • Full-colour flag sheets

That is quite a bit and should keep any historical gamer/modeler happy for a little while at least.

Continental Starter Army

Warlord being the ever wise gaming company has also included an Continental Army Starter Army and just as with the British Army set you get quite an impressive array of miniatures to field in the name of liberty, the set includes:

  • 20 Continental Infantry including full command
  • 40 Colonial Militia
  • 1 Cannon and Crew (Including Molly Pitcher)
  • 1 Mounted Commander
  • 1 Casualty figure
  • Full-colour flag sheets

The commander looks like then General Washington  on his gallant steed. To add a little more historical colour they have also included a Molly Pitcher miniature, she had reportedly fought at the Battle of Monmouth taking her husband’s place at the cannon as part of the artillery crew.

General

There is so much colourful folklore intertwined with reality of the war that it is sometimes hard to distinguish fantasy from reality. This is a set that I am particularly excited to see and it will definitely  make my must have list.

What is your favorite time period to game or model?
