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.
