Sneak peek at new Calpe Prussian musketeers
Posted by Martin on October 9, 2010
The two pictures above are from a batch I’ve just received from Peter F. that illustrate the now tantalizingly immminent new Prussian musketeer releases from Calpe Miniatures. Before I go any futher, it’s important to credit Steven Maughan of the Napoleonic Archive and his partner Julie for the paint jobs.
As is traditional at Calpe Towers, these figures will be released as “sets” that cover enough figure variations to construct a battalion in a given pose. On this occasion, the sets will at least include advancing, charging and trail-arms poses. I think that the plan is to organize these sets into packs of three or six figures (as was done with the Saxon musketeers). The only remaining work before official release is the completion of a couple of packs of officers and NCOs (some of which are designed to work across multiple pose sets).
