24 May 2022 ArticleIcon Another WWII set from Mars
Mars have just released a further set for World War II. This time the title is 'Soviet Border Guards', and has the usual 40 figures in eight poses.
21 May 2022 ArticleIcon Two more sets for World War II
Under the circumstances it is particularly pleasing to see the Ukrainian company Mars announce two new sets have been released. These are set 72127 British Commonwealth Troops and set 72128 German Panzerjagers. Both have started appearing at online Ukrainian retailers.
7 May 2022 ArticleIcon Strelets add a new title
Strelets have added a new title to their future plans, and again it is for the War of the Spanish Succession. This is set 263, 'Spanish Infantry in Square', and they clarify by saying that these are Spanish that are on the side of the Bourbons. No indication of release date of course, which is naturally particularly difficult during the current war.
1 Apr 2022 ArticleIcon New navy figures from Caesar
Some dealers are listing a new future release from Caesar Miniatures. The set is simply called 'US Navy' and is described as having 20 unpainted hard plastic figures. From the images they look to be flight deck crew, and some may have separate arms, hence the hard plastic. We are assuming that they are for the modern period. Caesar figures seem to be extremely slow in reaching outside China as we are still waiting for the Three Kingdoms set to appear, but any new set is welcome, particularly at the moment.
4 Mar 2022 ArticleIcon Caesar renaissance continues
Some dealers have started listing a new set as forthcoming from the newly revitalised Caesar. With some ancient sets already promised, this time Caesar come right up to date with a set simply entitled 'Modern Chinese PLA'. From the masters pictured on some sites, it would seem that these figures are in parade uniforms and poses.
22 Feb 2022 ArticleIcon New cuirassiers
Strelets have announced another set of cuirassiers are on the way. Again they are for the War of the Spanish Succession, and this time the nationality is Bavarian. Sculpting appears to be complete, so hopefully they will be part of the next release?
14 Feb 2022 ArticleIcon Strelets confirm Bavarians
Strelets have officially confirmed a set previously previewed on their forum. The new title is 'Bavarian Infantry Firing Line' and is for the War of the Spanish Succession.
8 Feb 2022 ArticleIcon First new Strelets title of the year
Strelets have announced their first new title for this year. The new set will be 274 'Bavarian Infantry in Square', and the style looks to match the other Napoleonic Bavarians already made by them. No release date as usual, but in the past sets announced at this stage have appeared in the next batch of releases, which in this case is likely to be in the spring.
6 Feb 2022 ArticleIcon Texas boys on their way
Ultima Ratio have announced a new set, and it is another for the American Civil War. To go with their recent Irish Brigade set we can now look forward to UK015 Confederate Infantry Texas Troops. Photos of the box and sprue have already appeared online, so we are guessing that release is not far behind.
13 Jan 2022 ArticleIcon New Caesar production confirmed
Following on from yesterday's news of a new set from Caesar, we now have more details. The first set will be called 'Three Kingdoms Shu Kingdom Set 1' as reported earlier, and contains 33 figures including three personalities. The expected release date is the 22nd of this month. Three more sets are also planned for the future, again all depicting the Three Kingdoms period, but there are no firm release dates for those yet.
