My latest battalion for the British Army of the Peninsular War. The 43rd (Monmouthshire) Light Infantry were part of the famous Light Division under General Crauford.
These are 28mm Victrix hard plastic multi-part miniatures. While I enjoyed the assembly and the actual painting, I have not enjoyed plastic figures as much as I thought I would. I have another two battalions on the go and once they are finished I won’t be going plastic again – unless I have absolutely no choice. I am pretty careful and I managed to break three bayonets that I just could not glue back on, necessitating the removal and replacement of whole muskets and arms. I have a crap load of these guys – like seven boxes, so I guess I will have spares for a long time.
Anyway – on with the battalion. The flags are GMB – rushed to me in about a week from the UK to NZ. The eagle-eyed amongst you may spot a couple of Perry bodies and backpacks.
