Adding yet more options to your Napoleonic Prussian armies we have more Landwehr to bolster the ranks! We have Landwehr at trail as well as Landwehr with pike and with musket. Read on to hear all about them…
We have sculpted some metal Landwehr with pike and with musket so that you can give yet more variety to your brave Prussian battalions. A good few thousand pikes were issued in the early days of their existence when muskets were short, and units certainly drilled and marched with them. It’s unlikely that many units got to use their archaic weapon in anger, which is probably just as well.
The front ranks only were issued with the pikes, the remaining two would have been musket armed.
Note that these models come with separate heads and allows for a lot of variety and conversion opportunities.
All Prussian infantry were well-trained and drilled, and the Landwehr were no exception, if time allowed infantry could advance in a manner of ways, but advancing “at the trail” seems to have been the favoured mode, allowing a quick pace, whilst keeping the temptation of stopping to fire away from a nervous soldier under fire.
These models come with separate weapon arms allowing plenty of diversity and positioning within your regiment.
But wait, there’s more! There’s still plenty of our fabulous plastic Landwehr available in our webstore. Head there now to further expand your army, and read on to see what other Landwehr goodies we have in stock!
These two mounted Landwehr officers are just the thing to cap off your new army. Utilising our Figure Head system (TM) of separate heads they’ll give you plenty of options to lead your brave boys in blue into battle. Both of the officers will fit either horse and their heads are interchangeable and repositionable too.
Here’s a great pack to add flavour and character to your brave Prussian lads. It has ten dead and wounded fellows, made up from an assortment of the 4 models shown here, and includes a mix of muskets and even some pikes, so poorly armed were the Militia in their early days. These would look great in your unit today, so head here and pick some up!
