28 Jul 2017 ArticleIcon New early modern sailors
RedBox have released three new sets, and as expected they are the three depicting Italian sailors for the 16th and 17th centuries. No artillery set this time, but two sets of ordinary sailing and one 'in battle'.
25 Jul 2017 ArticleIcon New Haller's Army
Strelets have announced a new set in the pipeline, and this time it relates to the Great War. The set is entitled 'WWI Polish Infantry (Blue Army)', which were Polish troops that fought in France with the French, and later in Poland, between 1917 and 1921.
10 Jul 2017 ArticleIcon More Siege of Vienna anyone?
At last! Amazingly, there are now many sets suitable for the late 17th century wars of the Ottoman Empire, yet only today has someone thought to make a set of Imperial Habsburg infantry. Mars have finally moved to fill this gap with their latest announcement, set 72102. Joining this set is another welcome newcomer - set 72104 from Mars will be Turkish Infantry (Tufekei), again for the 17th century. Presumably not too long a delay before these sets become a reality, and very necessary they are too!
6 Jul 2017 ArticleIcon Relaxed Scots anyone?
Strelets have added a previously unannounced set onto their website. Entitled 'Highlanders Standing at Ease', it is for the Napoleonic era and looks to deliver 15 poses of kilted Highland troops in relaxed positions, including officers and specialists. With so many sets in development there is no certainty yet as to when the set may be released.
3 Jul 2017 ArticleIcon Armada sighted!
Today three new RedBox sets have appeared at retailers. As promised, they have provided figures for the following titles:
  • 72102 - Spanish Sailors (16-17 century)
  • 72103 - Spanish Sailors in Battle (16-17 century)
  • 72104 - Spanish Sailors Artillery (16-17 century)
Looks like it is turning into quite a busy summer of new releases after a quiet spring.
30 Jun 2017 ArticleIcon Strelets boxes reveal future plans
The recent drop of Strelets releases have a number of new products previously unannounced or only hinted at online. Now we have the full details, so here are the new projects:
  • 156 - ACW Confederate Infantry Standing
  • 157 - ACW US Infantry Standing
  • M130 - WW2 IJA 25mm Type 96 AT/AA Gun
  • AO14 - 220 mm Schneider Howitzer
  • AO15 - 155mm St Chamond Howizter
We have not been impressed with past artillery kits from this manufacturer, so let us hope they have improved on that as they have on their figures.
24 Jun 2017 ArticleIcon Six new Caesar sets, and not all are German!
Caesar have announced six new sets on the way (and presumably very close to release). Some are replacements for old promised sets that have clearly been cancelled, and others are brand new codes. The full list is:
  • H029 - Ancient Chinese Shang vs Zhou Dynasty Troopers
  • H034 - WWI French Infantry (1914)
  • H096 - WWII German Sd.Kfz.2 Kettenkrad with 8.8cm Raketenwerfer 43 Gun
  • H097 - WWII German Winter Unit with Pak 36 / Servants
  • H098 - WWII German Fallschirmjager Heavy Weapons
  • HB05 - WWII German Panzer Crews (Set 2 Winter/Greatcoat)
While WWII Germans get the lion's share of the release, it is good to see other sets still getting a chance, and we expect to hear that these have all appeared quite shortly.

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.
