21 Oct 2021 ArticleIcon Something new in the desert
Strelets have announced that a new set is currently in the works, and again it is for the deserts of North Africa. The new set is M154 and is called 'Italian Desert Patrol'. Masters look good, and we might hope that this would be included in the next batch of releases, perhaps before Christmas?
19 Oct 2021 ArticleIcon Linear-A go back further than ever before
Linear-A have released two new titles, and needless to say both are from the ancient past. The first is set 045 and is titled 'The Army of Pyrrhus of Epirus (2)', while the second goes back a great deal further, as this is set 037 - 'Neanderthal vs Denisova Human vs Homo Sapiens (1)'. Both will shortly start appearing at dealers.

  • 72125 - US Machine Gunners D-Day

Hot on the heels of the release of two sets of British horse for the mid-18th century last week, RedBox have now released two sets of Jacobite cavalry. The numbers and names are:
  • 72141 - Prince's Lifeguard and Fitzjames Horse

30 Sep 2021 ArticleIcon RedBox release new 18th century sets
RedBox have released two new sets for the mid 18th century, particularly for the '45 Jacobite Rebellion. They are:
  • 72139 - Jacobite Rebellion British Dragoons 1745
  • 72140 - Jacobite Rebellion British Regiments of Horse 1745
A mistake with the printing of the box means both appear to have the same contents, but in fact they have completely different riders.
5 Sep 2021 ArticleIcon Three new announcements

This week has seen three new sets announced. First we have two from Mars. They are:

  • 72125 - US Machine Gunners D-Day
  • 72126 - US Rangers D-Day
Since Mars usually only announce new sets shortly before they become available, we are expecting both these quite soon.

Also new this week, Strelets are expanding their coverage of military catering with a set entitled 'WWI German Field Kitchen'. Since masters for this set have been published, we have hopes that this set too will not keep us waiting too long.
