Perry Miniatures has this week released their new plastic miniatures kit for the Austrian Napoleonic Cavalry. So, if you're heading off to Waterloo and need to build some new wargaming miniatures in 28mm, take a look!

Austrian Napoleonic Cavalry #1 - Perry Miniatures

Perry Miniatures' Napoleonic Austrian "German" Cavalry

This set allows you to build fourteen cavalrymen including their Officer, Trumpeter and an optional Standard Bearer. Breaking it down, this means they can be assembled as Cuirassiers, Dragoons or Chevauxlegers (Light Dragoons prior to 1801) from 1798-1815 with the appropriate head/helmet variants according to the folks at Perry Miniatures.

The Austrian army during the Napoleonic Wars had a strong cavalry arm which was able to put a lot of pressure on the enemy during confrontations. As always with a Perry Miniatures kit, there is a lot of detail worked into the constituent parts and they would be a joy to paint up.

Austrian Napoleonic Cavalry #3 - Perry Miniatures

The plastic set is available right now and you can also pick up three sets in order to qualify for the free Cuirassier Colonel in metal too. If this is going to form the backbone of your army then you might as well splurge I guess!

What do you think of these new plastics?
