Perry Miniatures - 28mm Austrian Infantry

Another set of quality miniatures from the Perry workshops, this time representing a wide range of Austrian Infantry types during the Napoleonic Wars.

When you first open the box and look at the frames, there appears to be a bewildering amount of parts, but the rational is simple, from this one set you can build any  flavour of uniform form 1808-15, alowing for the many changes n style the Austrian Army went through in this period.

The set contains 48 figures, with 7 frames containing 6 infantrymen each, plus a command frame containing an additional 6 figures. All figures are in a marching pose and construction is limited to adding backpacks and heads.

Now here's the cleaver bit, there are a total of 18 heads per frame, with 6 each in Shako, Helmet and Landwehr headgear. Simply select the head you want and make up the troop type you require. Shakos were used from 1807 onwards, whilst helmets had been phased out by 1809, so your army could contain both - if you pitch it at about 1808!

The command frame (see right) includes an officer, standard bearer, drummer, sapper and 2 x NCOs. As usual there is a paper insert containing a couple of flags.

Production quality is up to the usual excellent Perry standards and these figures appear to be 100% compatible with the Victrix Austrian Infantry boxed sets to add some variety if you so which to your collection.
