First rank, fire! Perry Miniatures release new Austrian Napoleonic Infantry


A mus’ ket purchase

Perry Miniatures have released several new metal sets as part of their Napoleonic line. According to their social media page,

‘The third rank of Austrian Line Infantry battalions were called on to act as skirmishers, although never to the degree the French used their voltigeurs. So these can be used for either a regular firing line or for skirmishing.’

Designed by Alan Perry, the new line features a command line and a firing/skirmish line. There are two types of each; one wearing helmets, and the other sporting shakos.
