We understand that Linear-A are working on a new set, entitled 'Hannibal Crosses the Alps', which it is hoped will be released later this year. No details as yet, but their German Warriors will be first, and possibly their Silk Road set will also appear this year. With their new and highly impressive temple kit already looking good, this is a busy year for them.

Mars have released a new set, and it is another for the Ottoman Wars, which have been so popular lately. This one is 72101 Turkish Heavy Artillery (17th Century), and as usual we will post images shortly.
7 Jun 2017 ArticleIcon Hello sailor - again
Three more sets from RedBox have been revealed as coming soon. Basically the format is much the same as the recent Spanish Sailors sets, but this time the subject is their Italian brethren. Numbers and titles are:
  • 72105 - Italian Sailors Set 1
  • 72106 - Italian Sailors Set 2
  • 72107 - Italian Sailors in Battle Set 3
As with the Spanish, the sets are all for the 16th and 17th centuries. Perhaps one day we will see something similar for Dutch and Portuguese sailors?

RedBox have formally announced some of their new lineup of figure sets, and these add to their impressive and expanding series on post-medieval naval subjects. The three sets recently announced are:
  • 72102 - RedBox Spanish Sailors Set 1
  • 72103 - RedBox Spanish Sailors In Battle Set 2
  • 72104 - RedBox Spanish Sailors Artillery Set 3
All are for the 16th and 17th centuries, so clearly encompass the age of exploration and the growth and decline of the mighty Spanish Empire, particularly in the New World. The design looks to closely follow that of their earlier English and Ottoman naval sets, so hopefully it will not be too long before we see these in the flesh.
15 May 2017 ArticleIcon Time to relax
Strelets have put up pictures of yet another new set they have been working on, and again it is good news for all those with a taste for Napoleonics. This time the set is 'British Infantry Standing at Ease', and from the masters it is evident they are for the 1812-16 period. Strelets now have a lot of new sets in the pipeline, but unlike another manufacturer famous for the quantity of sets in development, we understand Strelets will shortly be releasing a large number of them to their expectant public.
9 May 2017 ArticleIcon Order the charge
Strelets have added one more title to their list of current projects, and it is another for the American Civil War. Called 'Pickett's Charge 2', it contains a dozen or so poses advancing - not exactly charging, but they look like useful figures, and it is nice to see the Civil War get renewed interest after so long.
5 May 2017 ArticleIcon New Napoleonics anyone?
Waterloo 1815 have just released their latest set, number 056, which is 'French Line Infantry 1815'. Apparently mainly figures released in previous sets plus some new command, we will post images when we get them.
28 Apr 2017 ArticleIcon At last some decent Serbs?
After years of nothing more than the dreadful Coats and Shine set, someone has finally announced their intention to make a set of World War I Serbs. That company is Strelets, and the set, M126, is called Serbian Infantry in Winter Uniform. Masters already look to be more or less complete, so perhaps release is not so far away. Apparently there may be more sets of Serbs from Strelets if this set is successful.

Two new sets of Mars figures have started to appear at retailers. As outlined last month, their sets of Burgundian Field Artillery (72067) and Swedish Leather Guns (72100) have been released, and although they have not yet appeared, their set of Turkish Heavy Artillery is presumably very close behind. The Burgundian artillery is for the later 15th century (nicely matching the new RedBox), and the Swedish is for the Thirty Years War.
