New: Napoleonic Nassau Light Infantry from Warlord Games

Warlord Games adds to their Napoleonic range with their new Nassau Light Infantry, posed as though they were firing, over in their webshop.

These Dutch soldiers have a bit of an interesting history, fighting both for and against the British during the Napoleonic wars. Quite a bit of a turbulent time, those wars were (which goes without saying, really, but there we are, then).

From the release:

Spread panic in the French lines with the addition of some Rocketeers to your British Napoleonic forces!

As well as using Bombarding Frames to launch rockets through the sky (see below), these missile were also fired along the ground, as depicted with this model.
Rocket Troops were at Quatre Bras and Waterloo (under the command of Captain Wingate) and, although Wellington viewed the rockets’ uncertain behaviour with considerable distaste, he was aware that their 2,000 metre range was acceptable and that they had a distinct demoralising effect on enemy troops receiving these formidable projectiles.

Alban Kickstarter WIP: 1st amend to British crew sculpts

Warlord Games has released a new set of Napoleonic French Engineers over in their webshop.

From the website:

Napoleonic French Engineers were men charged with building bridges and fortifications as well as breaking down the gates and obstacles protecting the enemy. As such they were amongst the strongest men in the French army.

These characterful models are provided with an option to build them with the Charleville musket or with an engineer tool such as logging axe, spade, billhook, etc. This allows for a great deal of flexibility in the way you field them on the tabletop. Either way, they are getting stuck in!

New Plastic Napoleonic Late French Light Infantry from Warlord Games

Warlord Games expands their Napoleonic range with the new plastic box set of Late French Light Infantry.

Source

From the website:

Our latest Napoleonic boxed set arrives today – the Late French Light Infantry, containing 30 of our superb plastic infantrymen and 6 metal command figures.

Not all of Napoleon’s troops could make it through to the Guard, lifting themselves from the obscurity of the Line regiments, but the soldiers of Bonaparte’s Light infantry regiments believed that they at least were a cut above the rest. In theory, they were both trained heavily in conventional ‘heavy’ infantry drill, but also in the intricacies of skirmishing, moving forward in pairs in extended order, making use of cover, and firing at specific targets in an attempt to rattle the enemy line.

Source

From the release:

More plastic troops are added to the forces arrayed against the tyrant Bonaparte this week as our brave Hanoverians are now available!

The Duke of Wellington’s armies of the Napoleonic Wars were built from troops of all manner of nations and principalities, whom on the whole were British officered and trained, and who fought very well alongside their British comrades. The Hanoverian troops were, of course, German. They joined up in the British army to carry on the fight against Napoleon, the tyrant of the continent, when so many of their German cousins elected to fight for Bonaparte. They fought the same as British line troops in a two-deep formation, carried similar colours, and followed British drill. They wore either the Belgic shako, like their counterparts in British regiments or, as modeled here, the neat peaked forage cap which distinguished them from other units. This boxed set can be fielded as a Hanoverian Field Battalion or a Landwehr unit.
