1-VX0022 VICTRIX NAPOLEONIC FRENCH DRAGOONS 1807-1812 Set includes 12 highly detailed figures. These Dragoons have been done in the pre-Bardin regulation uniform which has the long tailed coat. This was supposed to have been replaced by the short tailed jacket in 1812 but many continued to wear the long tails well into 1813. These miniatures can easily be used for the invasion of Russia in 1812 and the battle of Leipzig in 1813.

Dragoon regiments had Elite companies which were distinguished by fringed epaulettes and quite often bearskin headdress.

The box contains: 12 x Figures (including an officer, musician and sapper), 3x Main Frames, and 1 x Command Frame. Multiple head variations (giving the option between line or elite companies). Unpainted. Assembly and painting required.1 vol, 12 pgs 2022 UK, VICTRIX

1-996378 Stille, Mark 378 LEYTE GULF 1944 (2): Surigao Strait and Cape Engano Second volume in a two-part illustrated study of the October 23-26 Battle of Leyte Gulf, which resulted in a decisive defeat for the Japanese, focuses on the forces supporting the main Japanese thrust. Reveals how the Japanese Main Body succeeded in its mission of luring the US Third Fleet to the north, but at a tremendous cost in the ensuing Battle off Cape Engano. Also explored in full visual detail is the fate of the small detachment of seven IJN ships ordered to attack into Leyte Gulf through Surigao Strait in the south. The resulting Battle of Surigao Strait on October 25, 1944 would prove to be the last battleship duel in history.
