Victrix produce fifteen sets of hard-plastic Napoleonic figures at the moment. Apart from a set of British foot Artillery, they are all Infantry covering the French, British and Austrian armies. Each box contains 50 to 60 multi-part figures with extra heads/arms/weapons etc, which allows a vast range of different figures to be made.

They can be a bit fiddly to put together, especially the arms of firing figures! But they are excellent for small scale skirmish wargames such as Sharp Practice, as the potential to make each figure an individual is huge. The figures are well proportioned and are compatible with several other popular ranges of Napoleonic figures.

In this photo the Victrix figure is on the left compared with a Warlord Games figure on the right. Both have the bottom of the base aligned with the zero-line of the grid but they sit at slightly different angles because of the different sizes and shapes of the bases.

Here is a Perry figure on the left compared with a Victrix on the right.
