I am very pleased to announce that a new AWI figure range is being added to the Fife and Drum Miniatures collection. The Saratoga Campaign of 1777 is the new figure range and Richard Ansell has already sculpted the first of the figure range: British infantry wearing the Saratoga Campaign uniform.

As you can see in the pictures below, Richard has completed the greens for the British infantry, and they are ready to go to Griffin Moulds where the master and production moulds will be made. Once the moulds are made then we can start spinning out castings, probably by January 2020, but hopefully a little sooner so that they can go into your Christmas stockings.


British Flank Company Figures
The new range will include flank company figures in both marching and action poses, the latter perfect for use as skirmishers. The British converged all of the light companies into one Light Battalion and the same was done with all of the Grenadier companies.

This figure can be used in all theaters of war: Philadelphia Campaign, Southern Campaigns and the Saratoga Campaign.

Fife and Drum Miniatures will also be adding the Brunswick troops and some other bits and bobs in the near future, making this a complete range.

  2. Any chance the flank company firing greens could be converted by Richard into center company models after moulding? Then it would just take some standing command todo a center company firing line too!

  3. Rob, that is certainly something that I will strongly consider. We did the same thing with our AWI Highlanders.

    1. Crann Tara might be able to carry the range in the UK and Euroland if Graham wants to have inventory.

  5. Saw that TMP took down your post about them. But it only spurred me to check them out. Excellent sculpts. Very tempted.

    1. I checked TMP and the original post is still there, so I don't know what you are talking about.
