Ah ha … the risk of my tragic demise by what is known to wargamers as ‘death by loss of lead mountain’ (see my previous post) may have been averted. This is because Perry Miniatures have just announced the release of British infantry who look like they’ll be perfect for the 1860s campaigns of the colonial New Zealand Wars. Buying a few of these may form the foundations of my replacement lead mountain.
Here are some pics from the Perry website:
And this is me (in Confederate uniform) with a British infantryman in campaign dress, taken during the British Intervention Force into the American Civil War … well, maybe!
