The models are looking amazing, just as you might have imagined from the Perry Miniatures range, and packed with detail. You can tell that the twins are Historical buffs.
Here’s what the Perry twins had to say…
“The infantry are in ‘fighting kit’ i.e. waistbelt and pouches plus water bottle and haversack so thus useful for the Anglo-Zulu War 1879, the 9th Cape Frontier War 1877-78, the 1st Anglo Boer War 1880-81 and the Anglo Egyptian War of 1882.
The keen eyed of you will also notice that heads in Home Service helmets are included enabling you to defend Britain against the fiendish French, the rascally Russians or even the minx-like Martians!”
Adding to this we also got to see some of their wounded models too which will work great as objectives on the battlefield.
I’m not sure if ‘Leave No Man Behind’ was something that applied during this period but I’d certainly see a scenario brewing where you had to head into dangerous territory to save your fellow soldiers.
Will you be joining their Zulu British band when these get released?
