AWI HESSIAN REGIMENT -- 28mm Miniature Figures
Huge numbers of German troops were ferried across the Atlantic in all manner of exotic uniforms. They were from many differing States but were broadly known as Hessians as a catch-all phrase. Well drilled and eager to close in battle, the Hessians helped to bulk out the Crown forces, whilst its specialist Light Infantry and Grenadier units were a welcome addition to hard pressed British generals.

* 30 plastic Hessian Infantry (24 musketeers, fusiliers or grenadiers including command group of two officers, sergeant, drummer and two ensigns; 6 light infantry Jagers)
* 4-page background guide including fourteen full-color flags1 vol, 30 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-PMAW200 Perry, Alan and Michael

This box contains 36 figures plus 2 casualties, unit bases, full painting guide, and flags for center company soldiers of a typical British regiment for the war. The regiments flank companies were normally detached to for combined light and grenadier battalions. They are represented in cut-down coats for campaign and come with three hat variants: the typical cocked hat, the un-cocked hat (i.e. board brimmed hat), and the 'Saratoga cap', cut down from the cocked hat. They can be assembled either at the charge or at the trail ( probably the most common drill position when operating in wooded countryside). The also wear the typical gaiter-trousers or American trousers which became very popular in the war. The officers are in simple undress coats favored on campaign.1 vol, 36 pgs 2013 UK, PERRY MINIATURES

BY FIRE & BAYONET: Grey's West Indies Campaign of 1794
There have been few books about Grey's glorious (but ultimately ill-fated) West Indies campaign in the early years of the long and terrible wars of 1793-1815, yet five of the subalterns in Grey's expeditionary force went on to command divisions in Wellington's Peninsula army; another two commanded the Iron Duke's Royal Artillery; and one (Richard Fletcher) - famously - the Royal Engineers.

The tactics used by Sir Charles Grey were as far removed as can be imagined from the traditional image of the two-deep British line delivering massed volleys at pointblank range. The invasions of Martinique, St Lucia, and Guadeloupe were raids undertaken by Special Forces, who were instructed to operate in open order, in silence, and at bayonet-point; all attacks went in with unloaded muskets.

Most of the heavy-duty fighting was undertaken by converged flank battalions, grenadiers and light infantrymen - assembled under hand-picked field officers and used as stormtroopers in every major assault; here were French revolutionary war tactics that are largely unexplored and largely undocumented (at least in modern times).

Sir Charles Grey was one of the most aggressive British generals of the era - something his gentlemanly appearance and demeanor did not immediately indicate. His ability to deliver needle-sharp assaults and then harry a defeated enemy (the latter being something at which British generals of the Napoleonic era were distinctly mediocre) makes him one of the more interesting personalities of the early portion of the 'Great War with France.' If he was not ultimately unsuccessful, it was not his fault: he was robbed of the resources he needed at the outset; then given virtually no reinforcements by Horse Guards.

The great killer on this campaign was not the French... it was disease: principally, Yellow Fever. Of the 6,200 men who landed with Grey on Martinique in February 1794, some 4,100 were dead by Christmas. It took many years to learn the lessons presented by the campaign, but for the young officers who survived, it provided some invaluable lessons that were put to good use 15 or 20 years later in the British Army of a later era.1 vol, 248 pgs 2018 UK, HELION AND COMPANY

PAINTING WAR, Issue #1 - WWII Germans
This premier issue covers WWII Germans. In it you will find 'Step by Step' painting guides for different types of German soldiers. From a general painting guide of a 28mm figure, up how to paint the emblems of helmets or the different camouflages used by Germans. In addition, this issue includes a 15mm painting guide, for those who prefer to play with smaller scales. Also, you will find three pages with information about epaulettes colors and rank symbols from all branches of the German army.

Finally, over 36 painted show models (one per page) - by Artizan Design, Warlord, Crusader Miniatures and a model sculpted by Michael Broadbent exclusively for the magazine- of the whole conflict.

From Grenadiers from the France invasion in 1939, to Fallchirmsjagers that fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Thus, this publication offers the possibility to find all info you need to paint your German soldiers to play Bolt Action, Flames of War, or for any destination you want.
