Today we will take an extensive look at the brand new Wargames Atlantic Prussian Reserve (1813-1815)! These new 28mm multi-part hard-plastic miniatures are the second set of their new Napoleon's Wars range. The Napoleon's War range covers all sorts of Napoleonic era themed miniatures such as the already released iconic British Riflemen. The trumpets sound and boots and hooves thunder over the fields of battle as Napoleon's wars raged across Europe and around the world. Our ever-expanding range will bring both iconic units and less well known ones to your tabletop. Check the full review and scale comparison here

Thanks for sharing! I actually like the idea WA got there with their set. After all, with most plastics sets you'll want to add metal command figures from the third or so battalion on anyway. The figures look alright to me as well. I'd like to see them do more sets like this one in the same fashion.

I think that this is where plastics work really well: Bulking up with basic numbers and generic pieces which can be used in all sorts of collections.

You cant argue with 60 figures in a box even if you need the command figures in addition.
It would be be good to see other "cannon fodder" sets like this.

Thanks and glad you found the review useful, I also really like this concept of affordable bulk soldiers.

Think their next army builder set is going to be Goth warriors if I'm not mistaken.

I like them and purchased two boxes of them, adding Perry plastic Prussian command and the 1st regiments uniform, 1st battalion should be off the painting production line this coming weekend.

cheers

Sounds like a plan, have been looking at the plastic command sprues too but have loads of metal foundry command miniatures I once bought as a bulk lot. So will most likely use those with some added bases to add height.
