||New releases from Caesar
Caesar have recently released no less than six new sets. The majority are for World War II Germany, as we might expect, but there are a couple of surprises too. The full list is:
Some of the numbers used had previously been allocated to other subjects, so it must be assumed those sets are no longer in the pipeline (all were medieval).
- H043 - Chinese Han Dynasty Troopers
- H079 - WWII German Infantry Tank Riders (Winter Set 2)
- H092 - WWII German Cavalry Division
- H093 - WWII German 21 cm Nebelwerfer 42 & 8.8 cm Raketenwerfer 43 with Crew
- H094 - Modern US Soldiers in Action (Set 2)
- H095 - WWII German Command Staff with Kübelwagen

Entitled 'British Infantry on the March', the set is number 141 and contains mostly marching figures of British line infantry wearing the post 1812 shako. A sergeant, officer, drummer and flag-bearer also look to be included, but no indication of release date yet.

||New Polish infantry
Strelets have just announced they are working on another new set. This one depicts Polish infantry on the march, and is suitable for the Napoleonic period. As well as 10 different marching figures, there will be an officer, NCO, flag-bearer and drummer. No indication yet on when this set will be released.

||New crowd-funding venture
HaT have launched a new crowd funding project. The first two sets are already set up and waiting for funding, and details can be found on their page at http://www.hat72.com/Crowd.html. It doesn't have the feedback or the refinements of Kickstarter, but it is an initiative we think deserves encouragement.

||New Scots on the horizon
Strelets have announced a new set currently going through the development cycle. Called, 'Highlanders on the March', it contains an assortment of marching British Napoleonic Highland infantry including officers, an ensign, drummer and piper. Since the masters are already made it seems very likely that the set will appear in the next batch of releases, but we shall see.

||Strelets make new set clear
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.
