20 Nov 2014 ArticleIcon Airfix cancels new sets
Unfortunately yesterday Airfix announced that they had cancelled all of their planned World War I figure and battle sets. Whether they will return to making figures in the future is not known, but this news will disappoint many who like us were looking forward to seeing Airfix become a strong player in the hobby once more.

On a more positive note, RedBox look to be working on a couple of early modern Ottoman Artillery sets. More details as we get them.
18 Nov 2014 ArticleIcon New releases over three millennia apart
Two new releases have started to appear at retailers, and they could hardly be further apart in history. First off we have a new set from Mars - 72086 Early Mycenaean Infantry, which would make it for around 1500 BCE. Much more recent, and much more specific in date, is the next set from First to Fight - Set 18, German Command, which is for 1939 and the invasion of Poland. Both will be photographed soon and reviewed soon after.

18 Sep 2014 ArticleIcon New manufacturer on the scene
For a while now we have been watching a Polish company making a range of models for the German invasion of Poland in 1939. The name of the company is First To Fight, and they have now said that their first set of 1/72 figures will be released on 26th September this year. The set is for German infantry in 1939, and our current understanding is they will be in plastic, so we have now included them on our site. Assuming that understanding is correct, we will let you know when the set actually appears, and of course photograph and review them in time.
