Oops, I must have missed this one!  It's something I think a couple of other people have suggested, I know we've had requests for some Canadians.  It could be something we can extend the new Napoleonics into once we get the bulk of the range done.

Yes - but no!?? Cry - get the main contenders sorted first. I mean to say it was a bit of a side show to the whole "Napoleonics" thing going on really wasnt it??

Although the British did kick some ass over there didnt they?. Ive read about this war many times and it makes me laugh that claims of victory in the "battle of..bla ..bla.." which really consisted of a couple of small boats on a lake shooting a couple of cannons at each other.

Then again we could burn the whitehouse down again - sod it count me in as a yes  Cheesy Cheesy

Hussar!!!!

Thanks for the kind words Privateer.

I certainly do think 1812 is a conflict worth gaming. Great variety of troops, incompetent commanders on both sides, lots of scenario options and you don't nearly as many figures as you would for the Napoleonic conflicts in Europe.

Though being Canadian I suppose I am somewhat biased...

I have War of 1812 British, Canadian and American forces for the 1814 Lakes campaign in 25mm. Where else can you get Militia, Regulars, Native Americans, Marines, Rifleman (American), French, Scots, West Indian troops in any combination all wrapped up with forest, farms and Lakes, about the only thing that was not there was Elephants. As to a side show, maybe but to the British it could have been a disaster if they had lost the Canadian part of the Empire.

What would be need to be made

For the British

1812 Shako/Uniform Troops
Light Dragoons
Royal Artillery 1812 Shako/Uniform
Royal Marines

for the Canadian

Glengarry Light Infantry Fencibles
Provincial Corps of Light Infantry (Canadian Voltiguers)
Caldwells Rangers
Militia in civilian clothes

American

Infantry in 1812 Uniform
Infantry in 1813 Uniform
Infantry in 1814 Uniform (Summer and Winter) or (Blue and Grey)
Rifleman in Hunting shirt
Rifleman in 1814 Uniform
US Dragoons
Mounted Rifles
Artillery
Militia (New York and Baltimore)
US Marines
Sailor

the Native American and early British are fine form the Nap Range

A few personalities would be nice as well - Brock, de Salaberry, Tecumseh at least.

Thanks for the info, I'll keep this in mind for once we've got the main Nap range done.

Most of the British troops will be done with the main British Napoleonic Group

The 1814 US can be a small Mod of the British post 1812.

the comments around boring is a matter of taste, there are many thing I to find boring but others do not, I will not deride their choices.

At the end of the day, this is a wish list and while I would like to see these items produced I understand that Pendraken will need to make a business discussion around the return on investment.

Privateer-mate!- It takes different strokes. I was looking for a wind up - obviously hasnt worked ( darn it!! Cheesy)

I agree 1812 N America would be cool wargamming, all those different troop types- whatever floats your boat.

Ive just been called a boring so and so on another part of this site as Im into 'stuffy' old Napoleonics, so hey ho!

Kep on gaming  Wink Smiley

Another vote for this!

I have allways wanted to paint it in 15mm, but It would be great to do it with bigger 10mm units.
