More New Sets

HAT have announced that they are to bring out two more Napoleonic sets. They are

  • Prussian Infantry
  • Prussian Landwehr

Although production has started on these sets, we will not know for a while when they will be released. It has been a long time coming for new Prussian sets.

The Infantry have only been through REVELL back in 1996 and although they have released them again this year, the price for these are about £1.50 more than their other sets.

The Landwehr first came from AIRFIX back in 1979. I brought three boxes of these back then and although I had one nick from the clubs break-in years ago now, I still have two left. One I have already painted and the next box will be used sometime this year.

Also ITALERI are to bring out two sets this year. They are the French Imperial Guard Artillery and Scottish Infantry. Some say that they are re-boxed sets from the old ESCI sets.

This could be another good year for Napoleonic sets.
