Perry Miniatures Heads To The Desert With Napoleon

March 1, 2017 by stvitusdancern

Perry Miniatures has new releases out for those of you looking to play Napoleonics in a whole different way. Napoleon’s campaign in Egypt and Syria during the years 1798 – 1801 to try and restrict Britain’s trade routes to India and create a “scientific” expedition to the lost cities of ancient Egypt.

While many see this campaign foolhardy for Napoleon, he did have a hand in the discovery of the Rosetta Stone.

With this in mind, Perry Miniatures are now offering some amazing (as always) miniatures for this campaign.  The following is a list of what is currently being released…

French in Egypt 1798-1801 – 28mm metal figures designed by Alan Perry

  • FE 24 Dromedary command on walking camels
  • FE 25 Dromedary on walking camels
  • FE 26 Dismounted dromedary command
  • FE 27 Dismounted dromedary skirmishing
  • FE 28 Dromedary camels sitting plus guard
British Napoleonic Army 1800-1815 – 28mm metal figures designed by Alan Perry

  • BH 129 Bombay Grenadier command
  • BH 130 Bombay Grenadiers marching
  • BH 131 Bombay Sepoy command marching
  • BH 132 Bombay Sepoys marching

Most of these will be one piece models in 28mm. While the Indian contingent arrived too late to be of any use, they do add to the “what if” scenarios.

We all know Warren has been talking about getting into Napoleonic Wars, well now that they will have all those desert terrain tables after the boot camp this weekend, so he can do Napoleon’s Egypt Campaign.
