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