After getting held up in the moulding queue, the new 10mm League of Augsbury cavalry are now available! The figures are all checked and are going into production moulds in the next couple of days.

The second half of this release sees the addition of cuirassiers to the range, along with their command.

LOA29 – Cavalry in hat, with sword, waistbelts
