How to quickly fill a 28mm Napoleonic Prussian Army – Wargames Atlantic Review

How to quickly fill a 28mm Napoleonic Prussian Army – Wargames Atlantic Review

Ever wonder how to flush out large sections of infantry for your Napoleonic Miniatures Games at an affordable price for 28mm Prussians?

In this post, we review a product by Wargames Alantic that could help you build a Napoleon Wars era army fast at an affordable price. Specifically, we look at their new Army Builder set for the Prussian Reserve uniformed for 1813 to 1815. This box of miniatures comes with 60 figures for $34.95 USD. Here, you will see the plastic sprues, view some built miniatures, and see a scale comparison image versus other brands. At the end of the article, I embedded my video review for those that prefer a different medium.

At $34.95 a box, this kit is a steal for those looking to create large ranks of Napoleonic era miniatures.

A big thanks goes out to Wargames Atlantic for sending me this box of figures for review. For those interested in being covered on Must Contain Minis, I do take review and sponsorship products. For my website statistics and contact details, check my submissions page.

With all that out of the way, let’s take a closer look at Wargames Atlantic’s Prussian Reserve from their Napoleon’s Wars line.

The Box

First up, let’s take a look at the front and back of the box. Wargames Atlantic put some artwork, pictures of painted miniatures and a description on the package.

One thing that I noticed is that there is no pictures of the sprues here. The Wargames Atlantic website has images of the frames, but I took some really good pictures of the sprues to share.

The Prussian Reserve Sprues

Here are the sprues that you find in the box. You get 10 of these, each with six figures.

As a note, there are no bases. The intention is that you will base them with your own bases based on the game that you choose to play.

Building the Miniatures

To build these miniatures, all you have to do clip the parts off of the plastic frames and glue their heads onto the bodies. If you want to take it further, each frame comes with three optional bedrolls for your six soldiers.

I was able to build these miniatures extremely fast because all that is involved is gluing the bodies to the heads. Easy and quick!

A Closer Look

Let’s take an even closer look at these figures.

The details are fairly pronounced on these figures. That should make them quicker and easier to paint too.

Unfortunately, I do not have any other Napoleon era miniatures to compare them to. That said, I own plenty of miniatures by other well know brands. Below is a comparison picture that should give you an idea of the size of these figures.
