23 Apr 2017 ArticleIcon Bring up more guns
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.

As previously previewed on some forums, Strelets have formally added another new set to their list of future releases. This one is M127 Arab Revolt Foot Rebels, adding to their existing World War I 'Lawrence' and Ottoman sets. This is one of the most prolific manufacturers around at the moment, with new sets announced on a frequent basis and large batches of new releases, so expect more new titles from them over the coming weeks.

Ultima Ratio have released two more sets, just days after their their World War II sets appeared. These ones look much further back into history as they are the Swiss infantry from the 15th century (sets 007 and 008 for Uri and Bern respectively).

Strelets have announced a new set for the Pacific war (and of course the war in China). Set M128 is entitled 'Imperial Japanese Army in Attack', and the masters are already available for inspection on their site.

Not long after the release of their last offerings, Mars have announced three new sets in the pipeline. The numbers and names are:
  • 72067 - Burgundian Field Artillery (1450-1500)
  • 72100 - Swedish Leather Guns (Thirty Years War)
  • 72101 - Turkish Heavy Artillery (17th Century)
Generally when Mars announce some sets it is only a matter of weeks before the product hits the shelves, so these may be available for inspection this spring.
