Japanese Cavalry From Empress Miniatures For The Russo-Japanese War

May 7, 2015 by stvitusdancern

Empress Miniatures is releasing some new miniatures for all those historical gamers out there. This time they are releasing some mounted Japaneses Calvary in 28mm from the Russo-Japanese War time period.

Also, since you cannot sit in the saddle all day (trust me I know, ouch!) there are some dismounted troopers as well. To round out this releases is a three man heavy machine gun crew.

While this may not be a tremendously popular war to game it sure does add to the wealth of options for those gamers that are looking for something a little different. I must confess I do not know much about this conflict, but I do like the look of these sculpts.

The heads do look more in the heroic proportions, but the detail is still nice just the same.  One item to note is that the mounted miniatures do not come with the horses, those do need to be ordered separately, so keep that in mind when making the decision of what to order.

Is this a time period that interests you?
