What the maker's say:
"This box-set contains 9 foot models comprising of 1 officer and 8 riflemen with a set of optional arms to assemble a bugler.
Based on the experience of the British Army in the American Revolution, this is a specialist unit with sharpshooting capabilities. For this role, they are armed with a rifle instead of the usual infantry smoothbore musket. This weapon is effective to a range of 200 paces whereas the musket is only effective at 100 paces or so.
The Baker rifles that are issued to the 95th regiment are shorter that the Brown Bess musket by a full 12 inches. They are issued with a 24-inch sword bayonet to compensate for the short reach of their weapon in case the unit has to defend itself against cavalry.
As Light Infantry, riflemen are deployed as skirmishers and thus we have selected postures appropriate to this role. Note the kneeling soldier resting his left arm on his knee, for a more steady aimed shot.
Their bayonets are not fixed upon the rifles as the weight makes aiming more tiring. Also, as they engage at long ranges, having fixed bayonet was not warranted.
The officer of the Rifles are dressed in a hussar uniform. As light infantry seek out rough terrain for actions, the fur pelisse is only worn on parade.
For the Napoleonic British (1812-1815) army series, this set marks the end of the series."
