We recently had the pleasure of visiting Alan Perry’s expansive home gaming room. In between filming coverage (which will be up to accompany an article coming in Wi 395) we grabbed some of his recent work and rushed it into our portable photo setup.
First we have AW 206 Spanish Colonial Dragoons galloping – these models join the American War of Independence range and bring extra mobility as the Dragoons rush into position before attacking.
Alan was keen to show these off – they’ve been painted rather beautifully by his mate John Morris. In blue is a Luisiana Dragoon, in red St. Louis militia, and the one in white is from the de Montesa Regiment.
Next is a preview of …
WE INTERRUPT THIS PRIME ARTICLE WITH AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE! ALAN ONLY LET US PHOTOGRAPH THESE SPINS IF WE PROMISED TO MAKE IT ABUNDANTLY CLEAR THAT THE AUSTRIAN NAPOLEONIC HUSSARS WILL NOT BE OUT FOR A GOOD AMOUNT OF TIME. SO PLEASE DON’T ASK HIM ABOUT THEM!
… 3ups of two of his new Austrian Napoleonic Hussars (not coming out for a good while!). A 3up, for those unfamiliar with the process of plastic kit making, is a sculpt that is three times larger than the models will end up. This is required for the plastic tooling process as it then reduces everything down in the making of the production mould (which certainly has not happened yet here, because they are not coming out for a good while!).

So, these are much larger versions of the Austrian Napoleonic Hussars (which it’s important we remind you are not coming out for a good while!) that will end up reduced and produced as the final kit (but not yet, these are not coming out for a good while!).
These resin casts of the original sculpts have been painted by Alan’s own skilled hands and look magnificent. (It is important we emphasise that you won’t be able to paint your own, 28mm versions of these models any time soon because they are not coming out for a good while!)
