Warlord Games release the latest in their Crimean War range – the 17th Lancers:

From their website:

The reason for this delight is mostly because we love these new models, sculpted as they are by Paul Hicks, but also because we will have a lot more time on our hands rather than be fielding a constant stream of emails about when these new sculpts will be available to buy! Under the command of the controversial figure of Major-General Lord Cardigan, the 17th formed part of the Light Brigade during the Crimean War. Despite seeing action on several occasions it will always be for their ill-fated charge at the Battle of Balaklava on 25th October that they will be etched into the annals of military history. Indeed the poet Tennyson captured the charge in his poem, The Charge of the Light Brigade.

    The casualty figs are really original. Don’t recall ever seeing cavalry casualties in the process of becoming crashing to the ground.

  • Casualty figures are pretty common in Crimean ranges because of the nature of the subject matter. Britannia miniatures and Foundry have both had falling horses for their 28mm Light Brigade figures for more than 20 years.
