Planned Sets

Even though there are already hundreds of sets available for the Napoleonic period, announcements of upcoming sets are received with excitement and anticipation. Some manufacturers even whet our appetites by posting previews of the masters, box art, etc. on their websites.

The basic information on this page comes from the PSR website and the websites of the individual manufacturers. I will update the information whenever new details are announced.

It is also a sad fact of life that not all announced sets actually see the light of day. I have dedicated a section in this page, entitled "The Sets That Never Were" to listing the sets which have been languishing in the "planned" category for years, or which have been announced as cancelled. I must point out that this list is not meant to shed a negative light on the manufacturers, but simply to present information which is relevant to collectors, modellers, etc. 

 

HäT 8234 French with Greatcoats Marching

No information yet on the period for which this set is intended.

HäT 8294 1815 French Line Infantry Marching

The line drawings and rough masters can be seen on the HäT website. The set includes six poses of marching figures.

HäT 8296 Pre-1812 French Line Infantry Marching

The line drawings and rough masters can be seen on the HäT website. The set includes six poses of marching figures, though all without heads. There is also a choice of heads wearing five different types of headgear - a forage cap, a bicorn, a shako with plume, a Tarleton and a shako in oilcloth cover with pompom. The bicorn is worn fore-and-aft as was the French custom on the march. At least one of the figures wears clogs as footwear. There are no details yet, how many heads will be included in the set, however, especially in the earlier years of the Revolutionary and  Napoleonic Wars, it would be expected that a variety of headgear would be worn. 

HäT 8297 Pre-1812 French Line Infantry Command

The line drawings and rough masters can be seen on the HäT website. The set includes six poses - a drummer, an NCO, a mounted officer including horse, tan officer on foot, an NCO porte-aigle and a sapeur. For the officers, there is a choice of three right arms - each holding a sabre at different angles. For the porte-aigle, there is  only the eagle without flag. As with the set of marching figures, none of these figures include heads. Instead, there is a choice of seven heads wearing different types of headgear - the five as included in the marching set, i.e. a forage cap, a bicorn, a shako with plume, a Tarleton and a shako in oilcloth cover with pompom - as well as an officer's bicorn and another shako with plume. The difference between this shako with plume and the other one is not immediately obvious from the photos.

HäT ---- French Elites in Greatcoats

HäT ---- Prussian Limbers / Caissons / Wagons

HäT ---- Brunswick Infantry

HäT 8309 Prussian Landwehr Marching

This set will be produced as part of HäT's Crowdfunding Project #5. The line drawings and computer-generated images of the masters can be seen on the HäT website. The set will contain four sprues, each including three figures each in four different marching poses as well as an NCO with spontoon, a hornist and nine knapsacks, total 56 figures

HäT 8310 Prussian Landwehr Action

This set will be produced as part of HäT's Crowdfunding Project #5. The line drawings and computer-generated images of the masters can be seen on the HäT website. The set will contain four sprues, each including two figures each in six different action poses as well as an officer, a drummer and twelve knapsacks, total 56 figures.

HäT Crowdfunding Project #5 Bonus Figures Prussian Landwehr

Depending on the number of sets ordered in advance, crowdfunders will receive one or more of the four bonus figures - a sapper, an officer, a surgeon or an ADC, all on foot.


HäT ---- Austrian Infantry


HäT ---- Russian Infantry

Red Box ---- Unnamed set Russian Infantry
No release date available yet.
Rumoured to be an upcoming set by Red Box, but not yet confirmed on the manufacturer's website. This will be the first Napoleonic set by Red Box. Two photos showing four masters can be seen on a Russian-language website. One photo shows three grenadiers of the Pavlov regiment in distinctive mitre caps - an NCO with halberd, a standard bearer and a drummer, as well as an officer in bicorne, while the other photo shows an officer in bicorne as well as an NCO with musket, a standard bearer and a drummer, all three wearing the (1805 pattern?) shako.

Sergent Arny ---- 2nd Battalion KGL - "Defence of La Haye Sainte - Waterloo"
Expected release date was January 2016
Originally designated as set 7202, though that set number appears to now be assigned to another set. According to the "Lancier Bleu" website, this set will contain 14 resin figures in 8 different poses.

Strelets 129 Napoleon's General Staff 3

No information on this set is available yet. Set 1 of Napoleon's General Staff contained standing figures, while Set 2 contained mounted figures. In fact the last full set (i.e. not a mini-set containing 4 identical sprues) of standing Napoleonic figures which Strelets produced was Set 1 of Napoleon's General Staff, which was Strelets set 013 (although the two artillery sets for the Egyptian campaign contain unique poses). Judging by the fact that all of the latest "Napoleonic" sets produced by Strelets have in fact been for the Egyptian campaign, it's possible that this new set will therefore be of mounted French generals for the Egyptian campaign.
A number of generals from that campaign, e.g. Murat, Berthier, Lannes, Marmont and Reynier, went on to make their names under the Empire, while there were other interesting generals, e.g, Desaix, Kléber, Menou, Dumas, who would also be worthy of inclusion. A couple of the savants, e.g. Denon or Dolomieu, would also be a possibility.
The GerMan set 022 Napoleonic French Camel Corps includes a figure which could be Napoleon mounted on a camel, so the topic is not new, though certainly under-represented so far.

Strelets 143 Polish Artillery
No details on this set are available yet. This will be the first set depicting Polish Artillery to be produced for the Napoleonic era.

Strelets 162 British Infantry Standing at Ease

Photos of the master figures are shown on the Strelets website. The figures are wearing the Belgic shako; from the photos, it's difficult to see whether the figures have shoulder wings or tufts. Eight poses of figures standing at ease are complemented by a command group of an officer, standard bearer, drummer, bugler and a sergeant with spontoon, as well as two sappers.

Strelets 163 Highlanders Standing at Ease

Photos of fifteen master figures are shown on the Strelets website. As well as eight poses of figures standing at ease, there is a large command group consisting of an officer, an NCO with spontoon, a standard bearer, a drummer and a piper, together with two sappers.

Strelets M115 Napoleonic French Sappers

No information on this set is available yet. The term "sapper" is in this case likely to mean the type of troops used in building earthworks and other fortifications, rather than the Sapeur troops which were included in infantry regiments. Strelets have already produced a half-set of the former type, set 003 Polish Infantry & French Engineers, and LW also produced a set, set 36 Napoleonic War Engineers.

Strelets Unnamed Set Prussian Landwehr

The only information on this set is a photo of four master figures which Strelets posted on their forum. The photo seems to show Prussian Landwehr (though they could possibly be Russian militia) at ease either before battle or waiting for action.

Strelets Unnamed Set French Imperial Guard Grenadiers in Greatcoats

The only information on this set is a photo of two master figures which Strelets posted on their forum. The figures don't seem to fit into the "marching" or "at ease" pattern of recent Strelets sets, though, so there is some speculation that they might in fact belong to another set which is already planned, namely Set 129 Napoleon's General Staff 3, see above.

Waterloo 1815 AP058 Prussian Army & High Staff 1813-15

No information on this set is available yet.

Waterloo 1815 AP101 Wellington's High Staff at Waterloo

Set AP101 is listed on the back of set AP061 "1815 French Line Infantry Fusiliers Marching" as a plastic resin set. It was originally released in metal, and so far, I haven't seen the resin version offered anywhere.

YKREOL YKRIP114 Dead Russian Dragoons with horses

This set will complement Hät set 8012 Russian Dragoons, Mars set 72029 Russian Dragoons (1812-1815) and the Dragoon figures from Strelets set 084 Borodino. Although the first set is for the pre-1808 era and the last two sets are for the post-1808 era, the main difference is that the previous caterpillar crest of the helmet was replaced by a horsehair crest. The figures in the YKREOL set, which contains 6 dead soldiers and 4 dead horses, don't include headgear so can represent either era.

YKREOL YKRIP115 Dead Bavarian Dragoons with horses

This set will complement Hät set 8030 Bavarian Cavalry. As with that set, the figures can also represent Bavarian Cheveaux-Léger, which is especially useful because both of the Bavarian Dragoon Regiments were converted to Cheveaux-Léger in 1811.The YKREOL set contains 6 dead soldiers and 4 dead horses.

YKREOL YKRIP116 Dead Austrian Light Dragoons with horses

This set will complement Hät set 8031 Austrian Chevauxleger. The YKREOL set contains 6 dead soldiers and 4 dead horses.

YKREOL YKRIP145 Dead Prussian Hussars with horses - 1806

This set will complement Hät set 8195 1806 Prussian Hussars  The YKREOL set contains 6 dead soldiers and 4 dead horses.

YKREOL YKRIP147 Dead Prussian Grenadiers - 1806

This set will complement Hät set 8135 1806 Prussian Grenadiers. The YKREOL set contains 10 dead soldiers. Going by the photo on the YKREOL website, one of the figures is an officer and another is a fifer.

YKREOL YKRIP161 Dead Russian Line Infantry - 1805

This set will complement Hät set 8072 1805 Russian Line Infantry. The YKREOL set contains 10 dead soldiers, three of which are on a single base.

YKREOL YKRIP163 Dead French Voltigeurs - 1805

From the photo on the YKREOL website, this set will complement Hät set 8171 1805 French Grenadiers and Voltigeurs. As with the Hät set, the figures could also represent grenadiers. The YKREOL set contains 10 dead soldiers, of which three are on a single base.

YKREOL YKRIP177 Dead French Guard Chasseurs

This set will complement Hät set 8170 French Guard Chasseurs. YKREOL have already issued one set of dead Guard Chasseurs (YKRIP69), however the figures in that set are in winter dress, i.e. wear greatcoats. This new YKREOL set contains 10 figures in summer uniform, although 2 of the figures seem to be without the uniform coat.

YKREOL YKRIP179 British Dead (Peninsular War)

This set will complement Hät set 8186 Peninsular War British Infantry. The YKREOL set contains 10 figures, one of which is an officer, and one either a bugler or fifer.

YKREOL YKRIP185 Dead Saxon Musketeers - 1806

This set will complement the musketeer figures from Hät set 8187 1806 Saxon Infantry. The YKREOL set contains 10 figures, one of which is an officer.

YKREOL YKRIP187 Dead Saxon Grenadiers - 1806

This set will complement the grenadier figures from Hät set 8187 1806 Saxon Infantry. The YKREOL set contains 10 figures, one of which is an officer.

YKREOL YKRIP189 Dead Württemberg Line Infantry

This set will complement the line infantry figures from Hät set 8093 Württemberg Infantry. The YKREOL set contains 10 figures, one of which seems to be a drummer.

YKREOL YKRIP191 Dead Württemberg Jägers

This set will complement the Jäger figures from Hät set 8093 Württemberg Infantry. The YKREOL set contains 10 figures, one of which is an officer, and another a hornist. Three of the figures are on one base.

YKREOL YKRIP197 Dead Swedish Grenadiers

This set will complement the Guard grenadier figures from Hät set 8091 Napoleonic Swedish Infantry. The YKREOL set contains 10 figures.

YKREOL YKRIP199 Dead Swedish Guard

This set will complement the Life Guard figures from Hät set 8091 Napoleonic Swedish Infantry. The YKREOL set contains 10 figures, one of which is an officer, possibly a general.

YKREOL SPYK-16 Siege of Saragossa 1809

The masters can be seen on the YKREOL website. The year mentioned, 1809, makes it the Second Siege of Saragossa.

YKREOL YKBOR-02 The Borodino Redoubt - Set 2

YKREOL have already produced set YKBOR-01 The Borodino Redoubt - Set 1. From the photos on the YKREOL website, these further sets appear to be similar to Set 1, but with the gabions in a different position.

YKREOL YKBOR-03 The Borodino Redoubt - Set 3

See remarks to YKBOR-2 above.

YKREOL YKBOR-04 The Borodino Redoubt - Set 4

No details yet, but likely to be similar to YKBOR-2 and YKBOR-3 above.

YKREOL YK23 Chiefs of War

This will be a copy of Odemars PF03. As such, there will be two identical sprues, each with ten poses, depicting famous leaders. The only one of these relevant to the Napoleonic era is Napoleon himself.

The Sets That Never Were

A Call To Arms 68 Iniskilling Dragoons

This set seems to have been listed on the PSR website for at least a couple of years now. According to PSR, release is believed to be suspended at the moment. Which is a pity, because it would be good to have another regiment from the Union Brigade at Waterloo to join the Scots Greys, which have already been produced by Esci (set 217), Italeri (set 6001) and Mars (set 72024, though this is a copy of Esci 217).

B.U.M. 5501 Peninsular War Catalonian Somatens

A somatén was a type of militia formed from the citizens of towns in a particular area, in response to impending enemy action. A somatén generally operated only in the area surrounding the towns from which it drew its members. Within the region of Catalonia, a number of somaténs were formed. The most notable actions were the two battles of Bruc, on 6th and 14th June 1808, where a local somatén, operating together with Swiss and Walloon regulars (mercenaries), turned back a French column under General Schwartz, which had marched out of Barcelona for Saragossa, where it would have joined Lefebvre in besieging that city. Spanish irregulars have so far only been represented by HäT with their "Spanish Guerillas" (set 8116). In fact four of the poses in that set are described by PSR as being Catalonians.

B.U.M. 5502 Peninsular War Cazadores of Catalonia

The term "cazadores" can have a number of interpretations. It could be used for the "voltigeurs" company of a line infantry regiment; generically for a complete light infantry regiment or battalion; or, more specifically, for the "chasseurs" companies within a light infantry battalion, where the "carabiniers" company would be the "carabineers" and the "voltigeurs" company would be the "tiradores". The 2nd Regiment of Catalonian Cazadores took part in the battle of Medina de Rio Seco on 14th July 1808. However, the 2nd Regiment was also part of the Marquis de La Romana's Division of the North, which became part of the French 8th Corps, serving in Hamburg and Denmark in 1807 and 1808, departing for Spain on 27th August 1808. It would seem therefore, that while one battalion was with La Romana, at least one other battalion remained in Spain. La Romana's force has already been depicted by GerMan (set 002, "Marquis de la Romana 1807 Infantry and Artillery").

B.U.M. 5503 Peninsular War Barcelona Volunteers

The only information I could find on Barcelona Volunteers refers to the Light Infantry Regiments. The 1st Regiment took part in La Romana's expedition (see also the Cazadores of Catalonia above). The 2nd Regiment took part in the second siege of Gerona from July to August 1808.

B.U.M. 5504 Catalonia Legion Infantry

To replace the regular army units, which had to a large extent been decimated, a number of Catalonian Legions were formed from the miquelets of that region. The miquelets were a type of paramilitary force, similar to the somatens, but more mobile and independent, operating further afield than their own towns. With the formation of the legions, these troops then became de facto regulars.  

B.U.M. 5505 Catalonia Legion Cavalry

See the remarks on the Catalonian Legion Infantry above.

B.U.M. 5521 Peninsular War Garrochistas of Bailen

The battle of Bailén, in which Dupont's French army corps was surrounded and forced to surrender by the Spanish Army of Andalusia, took place in July 1808. The garrochistas were irregular cavalry formed from the mounted cattle herders of the region. Their main weapon was the garrocha, a type of lance.

B.U.M. 5522 Almansa Dragoons

This is another regiment which took part in La Romana's expedition (see B.U.M. 5502 above).

Franznap FC-005 French Line Lancers Mounting  

Franznap now seems to have switched their complete production to metal rather than resin. In fact, some of these sets originally foreseen to be produced in resin are meanwhile available in metal.

HäT 8295 1815 French Line Infantry Command

In December 2013, HäT announced that this set had been "lost" in circumstances beyond their control, and will now not be produced. No further details of the loss were given, however the line drawings and rough masters can still be seen on the HäT website. The set would have included six poses - a drummer, an NCO, a mounted officer including horse, two officers on foot, and an NCO porte-aigle. For the officers, there is a choice of three right arms - each holding a sabre at different angles. For the porte-aigle, there is the choice between an eagle without flag and a halberd. Presuming there are at least three sprues in the set, it would therefore be possible to create the porte-aigle as well as the second and third porte-aigles. The set  also included some extra heads: wearing a shako with pompom, shako with plume or a forage cap.

HäT ---- Russian Musketeers in Greatcoats

HäT ---- 1805 Russian Command

HäT 8307 Napoleonic British Light Dragoons

In May 2017, HäT announced that the mould for this set had mistakenly been made for 28mm scale instead of 1/72. The line drawings and test sprues can still be seen on the HäT website.The set would have included two horse poses and four figure poses. Two of the figures had a choice of five possible right arms - two holding a sabre, one each a pistol, carbine or trumpet. Each sprue also included four separate carbines.

HäT 8308 Napoleonic British Heavy Dragoons

Same comments as for set 8307 above. The line drawings and test sprues can still be seen on the HäT website.The set would have included two horse poses and four figure poses. All four figures poses had interchangeable heads. Two of the figures had a choice of three possible right arms - two holding a sabre and one a carbine. Each sprue also included eight!! separate carbines.

HäT 8309 Prussian Landwehr Marching

The rough masters can be seen on the HäT website under "82xx Prussian Landwehr". This was obviously originally intended to be a single set (maybe a large box set), but was then intended to be split into three sets in the now usual marching, action and command format. The marching figures were later incorported into HäT's "Crowdfunding Project #5 Set 1 Prussian Landwehr Marching". In fact, HäT already has one set of Prussian Landwehr in its range - set 7006, which is a reissue of the Airfix set 1756.

HäT 8310 Prussian Landwehr Action

Comments as per set 8309 above.The action figures were later incorported into HäT's "Crowdfunding Project #5 Set 2 Prussian Landwehr Action"

HäT 8311 Prussian Landwehr Command

Comments as per set 8309 above. Apart from the mounted officer, the command figures were later incorported into HäT's "Crowdfunding Project #5 Set 1 Prussian Landwehr Marching" and "Crowdfunding Project #5 Set 2 Prussian Landwehr Action"

Heller 52705 Austerlitz 1805

Expected release date was June 2009; however this set seems to have since dropped off the face of the planet.
The first information I have on this set (though not yet confirmed) is that it consists of the following Italeri reissues: 6016 "French Imperial General Staff", 6003 "French Carabiniers", 6018 "French Line/Guard Artillery", 6037 "Austrian and Russian Allied general Staff", 6093 "Austrian Infantry 1709 - 1805", 6042 "Cossack Cavalry". Heller have done a reasonable job of selecting suitable sets for the period, though the carabiniers are only suitable for the post-1811 period.

IMEX 525 Waterloo British Cavalry and Artillery

IMEX 526 Waterloo French Cavalry and Artillery

Italeri 6152 Prussian Infantry

Since Italeri released set 6067 "Prussian Infantry" as recently as 2005, which contained figures for the later years of the Napoleonic Wars, presumably this new set will cover a different part of the period. This certainly seems to be the case, going by a preview of the box art from the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2010. As with set 6136, the preview shows this set with only 36 figures. 

Italeri 6153 Austrian Artillery Train

Presumably to complement set 6156. According to the preview from the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2010, set 6153 contains 6 figures, 4 horses, 1 limber and 1 cannon.

Italeri 6156 Austrian Artillery  

According to the preview from the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2010, this set has only 8 figures and 2 cannon. Maybe Italeri are downsizing their sets.

Tragik 11 Dead French Cuirassiers

Expected release date was December 2009

Zvezda 6801 Russian Chasseurs  

This set was originally planned as full size set 8073, then "downgraded" to a mini-set, and is not listed in the 2015 Zvezda catalogue, so has presumably been cancelled. The Napoleonic mini-sets include only six infantry figures and are foreseen for use with Zvezda's Age of Tactics game system. The reference to Chasseurs in the title of this set could have meant either soldiers of a light infantry (jäger) regiment or the jäger company of a line infantry battalion.  Although Hät have already produced a set of Russian Light Infantry (set 8072), these are for the 1805 campaign, and Zvezda tends to produce figures for the 1812 period. In the drawing which represented this set in the 2011 Zvezda catalogue, the figures look to be wearing the 1812-period uniform.

Zvezda 6803 Russian Cossacks  

As with set 6801 above, this set was originally planned as a full size set, set 8087, then downgraded to a mini-set, and finally cancelled completely. As Zvezda had already produced set 8018 Lifeguard Cossacks, this set may have been intended to depict irregular cossacks. HäT's set 8006 Russian Cossacks has already covered this subject, though with only four poses in that set a compatible Zvezda set would have been very welcome.

Zvezda 6806 Borodino Game System

This seems to have been intended as the basic game set for which all of the mini-sets with 6800 codes would be expansion packs. It had also been listed as 6807 Napoleon in Russia. Zvezda has already issued a couple of Borodino game sets, 8215 Borodino Cossacks Attack and 8221 Borodino 1812 Battle for Moscow, however they were from the "Age of Battles" range, while this set and the mini-sets were from the "Art of Tactic" range, which uses much smaller groups, e.g. six infantry figures, to represent each unit in the game. Zvezda's Samurai Battles set includes two sets of rules, one for Art of Tactic and one for Command & Colors. Possibly the Napoleonic mini-sets are now foreseen to be used with the Command & Colors games.

Zvezda 8073 Russian Chasseurs  

See comments on set 6801 above.

Zvezda 8081 French Line Infantry  

This set ihas in the meantime been released in a reduced version as mini-set 6802 French Line Infantry 1812 - 1815.

Zvezda 8087 Russian Cossacks  

See comments on set 6803 above.
