I think they just put another sprue into the box, there was no 'officer sprue' to add.
I use Empress Miniatures figures for officers and a bit of variety. They mix well. -zedeyejoe
Oh I realize that @Zedeyejoe. The solution was truly simple, and you got the bonus of "More Soldiers for the Same Price!" Double Win! As I said, it was more of a, "Oh if only.." kind of thing.
Now, as for the Empress Mini's, are they lead or plastic? Sorry, Im just not 'that' familar with a lot of companies. I really prefer plastic and not 'mixing' once Ive started w/ one or the other.
Perry has a set Im debating on; "Sudanese Tribesmen 1881-85". As the Empire series is 'generally' around the 1879 period and with only a "couple" of years difference, I dont think its such a big issue to grab some more British troops from WF, paint them in the Khaki uniforms and Voila!.
Your ready to start gaming some of Englands "north" African conflicts.
BTW Zedeyejoe, "Did you really have to paint the cuff and shoulder details?" I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler.. I cant paint like that!" LOL
"Have the Gods no mercy?" (Stelios '300') yea.. I liked that movie.
