However, it’s another week gone by, so another set of new releases. This time we’ve gone for something not flagged up on the end of year report, but no less welcome for all that. In past years we have had a comprehensive overhaul and updating of our major Napoleonic ranges, but for some reason, the Prussians did not get much
out of that process. The most obvious feature of that was the artillery, which had to do make do with just one model cannon.
This unsatisfactory state of affairs has now been rectified, as the Prussian army can now boast 3pdrs, light 6 pdrs, heavy 6pdrs, 12 pdrs and a howitzer. We’ve even got provision for a British piece in Prussian service. What is more, these are all single piece castings, so no more supergluing wheels to fingers during assembly.
This is part of our continuing strategy of phasing out the models with separate wheels, so expect a few more upgraded pieces to be released in the coming months.
On another note, the applications for games at this year's Joy of Six are coming in steadily. If you want to reserve a place for you game, please do get a booking form to us. You can do this from the JOS web page.
More new releases next week, just on time for the Vapnartak show in York.
They’ve been a little late joining battle with the existing flags for the Anglo-Allied Army of 1815, but the 15mm flags for the French for the Waterloo campaign are now available in the Fighting 15s shop. The Orders of Battle flags are ideal for wargamers or collectors who wish to have the correct flags for each battalion or regiment on the tabletop.
Our designer has been doing more research into the period. Sources vary as to whether the flags for the Army of the North had gold fringes, and because they’re easier cut off if not wanted than added if desired, our flags for this release have fringes.
As with their predecessors in the former Flags for AB range, Fighting 15s flags are ideally suited to larger 15mm or 18mm figures, having originally been designed to fit around the flagpoles of AB Figures. The French flags are deliberately overscale to show better on the tabletop.
All the flags are in our latest, enhanced style. Sheets cost £4.50 each including VAT, and the number of flags per sheet varies according to the formations represented.
