Perry NWF Plastic Brits Preview

No doubt those of you who were on the net yesterday noticed the preview of the Perry Miniatures North West Frontier British Plastic Three Ups and the lovely Peter Denis artwork? Apparently the next plastic set to be released so I'm wondering if there will be any Afghans, regular and/or irregular to follow? A big question if you're into wargaming the NWF.

First on to the cover art which is by Peter Dennis and depicts the 66th Berkshire's last stand at the Battle of Maiwand during the Second Afghan War. The 66th were decimated in this struggle and it's fitting that the box art be dedicated to them, It's nice to see Bobby the dog, regimental mascot of the 66th, making it not only onto the front cover but also into what I'm guessing will be the command sprue.

  2. Hadn't spotted them but they are very interesting and may spark another possible project for the future. I assume they will scale them as per their normally ranges which tend to be on the slight side but they make great figures.

  3. I reckon they will be the same scale as their metal counterparts Matt.

    That is, larger ten the WWII mini's, which were scaled to be true 1/56 and aren't as large as their other stuff.

    Darrell.
