Victrix Ltd - 28mm Waterloo British Infantry, Centre Companies

This is the first release by Vitrix Ltd. and will be the beginnings of a large range of Napoleonic subjects by the Company. their approach is slightly diffrent from other manufacturers, in that the well stocked box, will only provide figures to represent center companies of regiments.

To field flank companies you will need to purchace an additional box of teh appropriately named 'Waterloo British Infantry, Flank Companies'.

The box contains 52 figures with Belgic shakos and includes command figures for officers, standard bearers, NCO’s, drummers, as well as 4 paper flags and fast play rules.

The figures are well proportioned and a delight when built, however, they do require an investment of time to build, due to the large number of small parts - all arms, heads and backpacks are seperate, which then need to be added to the basic torso/legs piece. Note one figure on each frame has seperate legs as well.

Each figure frame contains 13 figures of Britsh Waterloo Flank company, there is also a secondary frame containing heads, arms, backpacks, sergeant, officer and musician parts.
