The Hanoverian plastic troops are optimised to add to the forces arrayed against the tyrant Bonaparte this week as our brave Hanoverians are now available as a single regiment of 24! Previously a boxed set of 36, we realise that for many of you 36 strong units are a daunting proposition to paint hence this more compact unit size. For those of you wishing to field larger units you can add extra sprues of troops…
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 Regiment or a Landwehr unit.
This boxed set contains:
• 20 plastic easy-build Hanoverian Infantry.
• 4 metal command miniatures: officer, drummer, two ensigns, wire flagpoles and finials.
• 2-page background guide with ten full-colour flags
As with our British Line Infantry plastics, these are easy to build as they comprise of just three parts – you can get your troops into action much faster now!
Also available is this 3-box bundle deal, providing you with an entire brigade at a great price!
