1898 Miniaturas have released their new collection of 28mm miniatures for those diving into the period of the early 1900s with the French Foreign Legion!

This collection offers up a range of miniatures for you to play around with. You have Command options plus soldiers who are Marching, Firing and Skirmishing. All of the miniatures are available in metal and can be snapped up as part of a Premium Collection or as individual squads.

French Foreign Legion Command Fighting - 1898 Miniaturas

I have always liked the idea of the French Foreign Legion. I think a lot of it stems from The Mummy weirdly enough. I think a lot of my thoughts about the French Foreign Legion are very much coloured by the romanticised version of it in films and the like but I reckon it would be a fun army to build as they fought all over the place.

French Foreign Legion Firing - 1898 Miniaturas

The range of poses here allows you to make a very good skirmishing force and you could rank them up quite nicely too. I also reckon that they would fit particularly nicely into smaller groups all mounted on one base too.

My favourite of the sets is this one (below) which shows off an awesome band of soldiers in the midst of skirmishing and battling their foes. I'd love this to be the core of my army.

As mentioned above, all of the miniatures that you see here are available in these individual packs or as part of their Premium Collection which bundles it all together. It also comes with the exclusive Beau Geste miniature based on the adventure novels by P. C. Wren.

I didn't know that this book (and series of films) existed and I am now very intrigued by the idea of watching some of the older films!

Are you tempted by this new set of miniatures from the folks at 1898 Miniaturas?
