There are two massive sets that come with everything that you need to play as either the British and the French. Each of the Starter Sets comes with around 1000 figures each that break down into infantry, cavalry, artillery and more. You also get the rulebooks, scenery and flags (all-important) that you'll need to complete your force.

As you can see, there are loads and loads of figures in each of these sets. Both the British and the French are well catered for with these sets and offer up the famous regiments of the time too. This means that you can play out Waterloo or practically any of the major battles from the period.

The American Civil War collection was impressive but it seems like Warlord has gone to the next level with these offerings. You certainly get the grandeur and sense of scale once you start placing all of these miniatures on the tabletop.

A big new painting challenge for the winter months? There are quite a few people (me included) who are intrigued by the Napoleonic era but haven't dived into it yet. Could this be the thing that tips folks over the edge?

Even MORE Napoleonic Miniatures

As if that wasn't enough, both the French and the British are catered for with loads of additional sets that can be used to add on to your already huge armies. There are quite a few of them so we're just going to power through them...

Once you see these miniatures close up, you get a sense of the amount of detail they have managed to work into these sculpts. I think they look impressive and once you get in those key colours for each army they will really pop on the tabletop.

So yes, there are all manner of options for those wanting to expand their British and French forces on the tabletop. The Starter Sets are impressive in their own right but these take things to the next level.

Napoleonic Terrain

You can't have a battlefield without some good terrain. So, the folks at Warlord Games have created some of that as well!

So yes, again, everything that you could need to put together an epic scale battlefield for playing out the moments at Waterloo and beyond. Each of the terrain kits comes with MDF components that can be built into sections so you can easily put together battlefields and then take them apart which is neat.

Pre-Orders Live This Weekend
