Perry Provides Intelligence On Upcoming Release Of British Infantry

February 16, 2016 by stvitusdancern

Perry Miniatures has announced that they will soon be releasing a new box set of plastic miniatures depicting the British infantry from the time period of 1877 to 1885.

They have been described as:

The figures have quite a few arm more options than shown here and a choice of covered helmets for Indian service or just pugrees so they could potentially be used in Sudan. The box cover is another stunning piece by Peter Dennis and depicts the 66th’s last stand at the Battle of Maiwand in 1880.

The command and main infantry frame are in tooling at the moment but we can’t be exactly sure of their release date although they are due out next. They are 28mm and made by Michael.

For all of you historical buffs, this may be just what you need to game in the late days of the Colonial period for Britain.

While I must admit my knowledge of this time period is limited to the Zulu Wars, I fully understand that there were so many more conflicts going on that do not get as much attention. As always these miniatures look to be finely detailed and will be a pleasure to assemble and paint.

Does this time period interest you?
