There’s slightly more detail on the forthcoming release in this excerpt from the Salute website:
… a brand new range for the Maori Wars, 1845/6. Sculpted by the talented Paul Hicks, the release will be around 40 figures and covering British infantry and militia, civilians, and a naval rocket unit fighting against the tongue poking, heavily tattooed, Maoris.
So, there we have it – it appears we’ll have regulars, militia and civilians, and Maori, all aimed at the Northern Wars period.
I understand that in this first release there won’t be any skirmishing naval crew (who took part in many of the engagements during this period). But they may be a possibility for a further release.
