Twenty-four new regiments have joined the range of 30mm Prussian Seven Years War infantry flags for Huzzah! Miniatures. The range has expanded from the initial release of regiments 1 to 12, and flags are now available for infantry regiments 1 to 36. Each sheet contains four flags for one infantry regiment and costs GBP3.25 including VAT. Flags are available to order now in the online shop.
We will add the remaining infantry regiments soon and then progress to the cavalry flags.
Although designed to fit the flagpoles of Huzzah! Miniatures’ 30mm figures, the flags also suit 25mm and 28mm figures from other manufacturers.
As for Huzzah! Miniatures themselves, work is still progressing on mould making. Musketeer variants A, B and C are currently available, along with grenadier variant A and the respective commands. We regret that illness has got in the way of mould making, but hope to catch up here shortly – just as soon as we’ve got up to date on orders. Until we are ready to announce the initial range as a whole, however, figures remain available to advance order in the online shop.
The Fighting 15s online shop now lists the initial codes of Huzzah! Miniatures range of classic 30mm Seven Years War figures. Figures, which include Prussian-style musketeers and grenadiers, are currently available to advance order as the figures have yet to be officially released.
Pictures of the figures currently only exist for the special bargain packs for gamers who use the old school wargames rules Charge! or The War Game. Huzzah! Miniatures is still at work on production moulds and pictures of individual figures of the range.
Prices of foot figures have been fixed at GBP0.70 per foot figure and GBP2.10 for the mounted officer. The base infantry pack coupled with a command pack for Charge! reduces the cost to the equivalent of just over GBP0.65 per foot figure including VAT.
The first 12 sheets of 30mm Prussian flags for the range is also available in the shop. Flags have been designed neatly to wrap round the flagpoles of standard bearers in the Huzzah! Miniatures range of classic 30mm figures.
Classic 30mm wargames figures are old school wargames figures of comparatively slim build that measure 30mm from head to foot.
A blog about the Huzzah! Miniatures 30mm Old School Miniatures project now exists to give updates and details about this range of figures. The blog is at: www.oldschoolminiatures.co.uk
A first glimpse of our new range of classic 30mm wargames figures for old school wargamers is now available on the Huzzah! Miniatures page of the Oozlum Games website. We are currently working on the production moulds for the Prussian SYW infantry and with luck will have initial figures available at Salute on stand TC09.
Because these figures are aimed at old school wargamers who build units of 48 or 60 figures, the range will be competitively priced. We expect introductory prices will work out at 70p inc VAT per infantry figure bought as individuals, or 65p inc VAT per figure for a 60-figure unit pack (GBP39.00 total).
The figures are not yet available to buy in our online shop, but should be available this spring. We will also be offering a range of flags to accompany them.
