23 Jul 2016 ArticleIcon Four new releases from RedBox
RedBox have released four new sets, which are already reaching some shops. The details are:
  • 72056 - Scottish Heavy Cavalry
  • 72096 - Spanish Infantry (Set1)
  • 72099 - Italian Infantry (Set 1)
  • 72108 - Scottish Light Cavalry
Also we understand that the three sets of French Infantry 1815 from Waterloo 1815 are very close to release too.
11 Jul 2016 ArticleIcon Nine new sets are born
Strelets have just released their latest batch of figure sets, which amounts to nine titles. The names and numbers are:
  • 115 - Lawrence of Arabia
  • 138 - Roman Senate 2
  • 909 - Norman Army Camp
  • M052 - Turkish Army
  • M108 - Pretorian Ranks
  • M109 - Pretorians Ceremonial March
  • M111 - New Zealand Troops
  • M112 - US Navy and Anti-Aircraft Machine-Gun
  • M113 - Early WWII American Soldiers
Most speak for themselves, with the last three being for World War II. Set M052 shows no details (apart from being for the Crimean War) but is probably a reissue of the Ottoman figures found in the Thin Red Line set.

Strelets have added another set to their future plans with one entitled 'WWII Indian Infantry'. It has been almost four decades since the last set to depict Indian troops during the 39-45 war, so good to finally see a new one, though the release date is not yet known.
27 Jun 2016 ArticleIcon Two new Ottoman sets
Two new Ottoman sets have reached the market from RedBox. The titles are set 1 and set 2 for Osman Sipahi and are available now.
22 Jun 2016 ArticleIcon New set?
It seems that Caesar are well advanced on a number of new figure sets, one of which was not previously know to us. The 'new' set is H043 Han Dynasty, though there has long been set H016 on the Caesar listing, which has the title 'Chinese Han Dynasty Army'. Whether this new set replaces the first, which will never be made, or it complements it we do not know, though our guess would be for the former.
16 Jun 2016 ArticleIcon More from RedBox
Four new sets have emerged as in preparation from RedBox. The numbers and names are:
  • 72056 - Scottish Heavy Cavalry
  • 72108 - Scottish Light Cavalry
  • 72096 - Spanish Infantry (Set1)
  • 72099 - Italian Infantry (Set 1)
The Scottish sets are for the Wars of the Roses, and the rest are for the 16th century. Based on past performance these sets may appear quite quickly.
12 Jun 2016 ArticleIcon New Germans
Linear-A are working on another new set, Germanic Warriors, which is presumably for the Roman period. It seems to be at an early stage so far, with sculpting underway.
6 May 2016 ArticleIcon Brand new very old civilians
Linear-A have very kindly let us know that their first set under that name has just started distribution. Named 'The Folk of Judea', it is a set of civilians for that area during the period when it became a Roman tributary and then a province.
5 May 2016 ArticleIcon Figures from Mars
It looks like the three sets mentioned below as due soon from Mars have started appearing in shops. We will post pictures as soon as we get them.
22 Apr 2016 ArticleIcon New Mars and RedBox for Spring/Summer
A number of new sets will be appearing in a few weeks time from both Redbox and Mars. Taking RedBox first, it will come as no surprise, given their recent series on the armies of the Ottomans, that they are planning set 72094 - Osman Sipahi Set 1. Good to see the 'Set 1' as Sipahis were so important to any Ottoman army, but no release date yet. Also Mars have revealed their plans for a new batch of releases sometime next month. The names are:
  • 72095 - Swedish Dragoons (Set 2)
  • 72096 - Imperial Dragoons
  • 72097 - Turkish Eyalet Infantry
The first two are for the Thirty Years War 1618-1648, while the last is for the 17th century, a particularly busy century in the history of the Ottoman Empire.
