Black Powder: Napoleonic Hanoverian Infantry
Product code: AC2076
The Duke of Wellington’s armies of the Napoleonic Wars were built from
troops of all manner of nations and principalities, whom on the whole
were British officered and trained, and who fought very well alongside
their British comrades. The Hanoverian troops were, of course, German.
They joined up in the British army to carry on the fight against
Napoleon, the tyrant of the continent, when so many of their German
cousins elected to fight for Bonaparte. They fought the same as British
line troops in a two-deep formation, carried similar colours, and
followed British drill. They wore either the Belgic shako, like their
counterparts in British regiments or, as modeled here, the neat peaked
forage cap which distinguished them from other units. This boxed set can
be fielded as a Hanoverian Field Battalion or a Landwehr unit.
This boxed set contains:
20 plastic easy-build Hanoverian Infantry.
4 metal command miniatures: officer, drummer, two ensigns, wire
flagpoles and finials.
2-page background guide with ten full-colour flags
Note: Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
