News from the Front

I have not done one of these for a while as there were no new figures for me to buy to build up my armies of late, but there was some good news from HaT over the past two days.
The news from HaT HQ is that there are indeed a lot of new Napoleonic sets coming out during the latter half of the year. I reported to you back in July last year that the sets 8197 Brunswick Cavalry and 8197 Prussian Hussars will be out later this year which is great news for me. They have been waiting around for the past four years from drawings to production. AT LAST!
But HaT have said that there are another three sets that could be out by the end of the year. They are British and French Command sets for which a long while ago we did see some roughs for the British but nothing else and a set of mounted officers.
Now the mounted officer’s set 8279 is one of them sets that just suddenly appear on their site. There are no box picture or test shots of these figures but there is a picture of them already painted up. This set contains four officers on horseback. There are two Prussian officers Line and Landwehr plus one Russian and one Spanish officer.
