DLKB41 Kingdom of Britannia Infantry Officer Set
The Kingdom of Britannia has territories spread across the globe, and is an Empire unlike any seen before. If you ask at the local gentleman’s club as to why this is, it will be explained it is because of the courage of men and the superiority of the officers.
Infantry Officers are the backbone of every army; whether operating on their own or with a select section of guards, their insight, experience, courage and ability is so often the difference between victory and defeat! The fine men and women that make up the Officer Corps of the Kingdom of Britannia are almost universally drawn from aristocratic stock.
Contains: 2 Infantry Officers, 5 Line Infantry, 1 Musician and a deck of Tactical Action Cards. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.
DLKB42 Kingdom of Britannia Lineman Infantry Set
The Kingdom of Britannia is renowned for the discipline and training of its forces, and its ground forces most especially for their ability to maintain a steady stream of fire even under the most difficult of circumstances.
A backbone of hardy professional Line Infantry makes up the Britannian core forces. These riflemen are a mixture of well-trained professional soldiers and highly motivated volunteers. The Britannian infantry has a formidable reputation for marksmanship, being able to put out as much firepower with their single-shot Martini-Metfords as other soldiers can with repeating weapons.
Contains: 1 NCO and 10 Linemen. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.
DLKB43 Kingdom of Britannia Line Infantry Expansion Set
From the steady drum beat of the Musician, to the heat and destruction of the MkII Flamethrower, or the terrifying Nordenfeldt MkV HMG, the Kingdom of Britannia is ready to take the field!
This boxed set is designed to be used in conjunction with the Kingdom of Britannia Linemen Section Box, and allows both boxes in concert to create any of the backbone Sections of a Kingdom of Britannia army, from Battle Line Sections, to Assault Sections, to HMG Sections and Support Sections.
Vital in maintaining discipline, and providing leadership and courage, the NCO, especially when supported by a Musician, is often the backbone of a Section, able to maintain the line in the face of deadly assault, or leading by example as the Section charges forward. The Brunel-Nordenfelt is a piece of engineering renowned across the world for its extreme range and withering firepower. A multi-barrelled volley gun with a thick gun shield to protect its valuable crew, this HMG exemplifies the sturdy, reliable nature of Britannian design.
Reasoning that a sheet of flame is one of the best ways of making sure the enemy stays well away, engineer Sydney Haskins of the Royal Ordnance Works perfected his flamethrower design with the Mark III. It is nicknamed the ‘Ricardo’ after his Italian-born engineering assistant, who had the unenviable task of live-testing Haskin’ designs! The Mark III was a resounding success, and was quickly issued to the Britannian infantry regiments. In battle, the flamethrower operators shelter amid the ranks of the riflemen.
Contains: 1 NCO, 3 MkIII Flamethrower Specialists, 1 Musician Attachment and 3 Heavy Machine Gun teams. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.
DLKB44 Kingdom of Britannia Heroes of the Empire Set
The Heroes of the Empire are the stalwart men and women who inspire the nation. Poems are written in their honour, songs sung, and stories told. Grizzled veterans or daring soldiers, they have risen through their own genius to the greatness of ‘hero’ Long may they serve the Empire, long may they inspire the people, and long may they stand to give the enemy a damned good thrashing! The Kingdom of Britannia Heroes of the Empire Box includes the following miniatures:
Colonel Sinjon Hector ‘Big’ MacDonald and Jenkins – Colonel MacDonald is an institution in his own right; a feared general of the Kingdom of Britannia. Although technically retired, ‘Big’ MacDonald was offered a front line commission because his bulldog spirit and ferocity couldn’t be confined to a General Staffing position. Riding in his specially constructed armoured wheelchair, Colonel MacDonald is often flanked by his loyal Black Watch, and always accompanied by his Gentlemen’s Gentleman: Jenkins.
Jenkins, for his part, is a collected and calm reflection of MacDonald’s explosive image, and equally as responsible for the Colonel’s oeuvre. A true gentleman’s gentleman, Jenkin’s is the subject of awe among even MacDonald’s Blackwatch. As calm as MacDonald is fiery, and less perturbed by a rocket barrage exploding nearby, as he decants his master’s single malt, than he is by besmirched uniform, the two make a truly fearsome partnership.
Captain Gilbert ‘Bertie’ Smethington and Betty – There are few individuals that can flounce around the battlefield and back it up with the sort of daring-do that makes Robin Hood’s adventures seem like a musty dull tome. Tales of his exploits are legend even before his bullet-ridden plane lands, and the daring, dashing heroism they speak of is never anything short of a buttock-clenching roller-coaster of excitement, danger and thrills. He writes his own adventure story, and it’s written with a pen most titans would struggle to wield.
Accompanying Bertie on his adventures is the equally enchanting Betty, appointed by the war-office as a writer to journal this great hero’s exploits she has seen more than her fair share of action, and her correspondence detailing their escapades has become a staple of bed stands and side tables everywhere in the kingdom. If Bertie is a dashing hero the nation can aspire to, Betty is the artist that has framed his glory, and citizens the Britannian Empire over hang on her every word, waiting between instalments for the latest great adventure.

DLPE44 Prussian Empire Heroes of the Empire Set
The Heroes of the Empire are the stalwart men and women won inspire the nation. Poems are written in their honour, songs sung, and stories told. Grizzled veterans or daring soldiers, they have risen through their own genius to the greatness of ‘hero’. Long may they serve the Empire, long may they inspire the people, and long may they stand to give the enemy a damned good thrashing! The Prussian Empire Heroes of the Empire Set includes the following miniatures:
Oberst Werner Hahl and Gluklich – Rarely has the battlefield been graced by such a true artist of combat, a ferocious enemy to all those who would dare to stand against the might of the Prussian Empire. A brilliant commander of men, tireless and brave, Oberst is a firm believer in leading from the front. Seriously wounded in a violent explosion that lost him his arm, and the hind quarters of his faithful pet Gluklich, Oberst is now even more a terrifying opponent, able to smash his enemies, and even tear enemy Ironclads to pieces. Accompanied by his faithful pet Gluklich, mascot of the Grenadier Sections that serve loyally under Oberst, he is truly an enemy to be feared.
Gluklich, from his early days as a puppy, had a special place in the heart of his mighty owner and the men and women who served under him. Torn to pieces by the explosion that forever changed his master, Gluklich was lovingly tended and repaired with the latest technologies Prussian scientists could manage. If he was a deadly hound before, like his master, he has only increased in ferocity and power!
Professor Gustardt and Siegfried – Brilliant engineer, inventor, scientist and polymath, Professor Gustardt has a special fascination for electricity. Responsible for countless improvements to the tesla weaponry of the Prussians, Gustardt became obsessed with the potential of utilising Tesla weaponry to dominate the land war. To that effect he has experimented with his own special creations – the Telsa Gauntlets, a weapon of terrifying potential, both for the wearer and the enemy. Blessed as it seems with more lives than a litter of kittens, Gustardt has endured more electrical shocks than anyone still standing, and what’s more, he claims it hasn’t affected him at all!
Siegfried is the ever faithful servant of Gustardt. Handling the controls of the Amplified Stabilisation Actuator, he provides his master with the surges in power he demands. With a slight limp, and a fear of anything that explodes with light and energy, Siegfried nonetheless toils after his master, and together they are capable of inflicting wanton damage on an unprecedented scale!
