Victrix Limited are working away on all sorts of miniatures for different historical periods at the moment but one of their latest previews was for a new set of 28mm plastic cavalry. If you're into your Napoleonics then you'll want to take a look at these.

One of the new packs they have been working on is for the British cavalry including the likes of the Dragoons which you see above. We say this most of the time when we see Victrix miniatures but there are a lot of options built into these kits. All of them have also been researched quite extensively meaning that they should be spot on for accuracy (more or less).

As well as the British Dragoon Troopers, the kit will also come with some options for making the Scots Greys as well.

I always like that the cavalry from Victrix is posed in such a way as to simulate the moment of a proper charge against the enemy. Too often you see cavalry which is posed as if they are out for an early morning canter around the farm. I like seeing cavalry which is right on the edge of crashing into their enemies as it makes for more dynamic battlefields I think.

When it comes to the head options, the team at Victrix also share some close-ups of the Scots Grey variants.

One of the tasks here, as they explained in their preview, was to create a set of heads which made it looks like each of the riders was getting stuck in. To this end, the expressions are all aggressive showing shouts and plenty of gritted teeth. This, much like with the posing for the horses, gives you the impression that these soldiers are about to crash headlong into their enemy.

If you're into your Napoleonics then I could see this being another fun pack to pick up!
