Anyway, if you’re looking to bulk up your forces with some new line units, or a new set of cavalry modelsContaining enough models to make a complete Brigade, the Prussian Landwehr make up the backbone of this durable army.
This Brigade force contains:
78 Prussian Landwehr Infantry (3 Regiments) 1813-1815
2 Prussian Landwehr Mounted Officers 1789-1815
, now is definitely your chance to do so.
From the releases:
The Poles have been excellent horsemen for generations and in their innumerable clashes with Russia had learned to fight the lance-armed Cossacks, equipping themselves with a 9-foot wooden lance with a wicked spear point and coloured guidon beneath the blade.
12 plastic easy-build Polish Line Light Horse Lancers.
Additional Polish metal heads.
1 additional metal officer and metal horse.
1 optional metal arm for a bugler.
The Vistula Legion was perhaps the most famous of the many foreign units in French service under Napoleon. Formed in Silesia in February 1807 from an infantry regiment and cavalry regiment in the service of the Kingdom of Naples, it was initially named the Legion Polacco-Italienne (Polish-Italian Legion) as it had been organised around the Poles in Italian service.
This Battalion box set contains:
20 plastic and metal easy-build Polish Line Infantry.
4 metal command miniatures (two officers, one drummer and one sapper).
The Landwehr were militia formed from teenagers through to men in their forties. They were plucked from their fields, shops and offices and enrolled into the Prussian military machine to enlarge the forces that could finally depose Napoleon, the Tyrant of Europe. Prussia was a small State but her armies were well-trained and burning to avenge their past defeats.
