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.
12 Jan 2022 ArticleIcon New Caesar?
Rumours have been flying around just recently about the return of Caesar to the hobby, with some new production. Today we learn from one of our Chinese visitors that they are advertising their first new set as 'Three Kingdoms (Shu Kingdom Set 1)', which if confirmed would be a great new addition to the range. The Three Kingdoms period followed the end of the Han dynasty in 220 CE. We understand the set will contain 33 figures, but we should point out that images we have seen of the figures only show them painted, so we will attempt to get more details on exactly what the set will contain and pass them on when we hear more.

25 Nov 2021 ArticleIcon Il Duce's forces get a boost.
Strelets have formally announced a much-previewed set. The number is M153 and the title 'Italian Infantry in Defence'. Clearly for the Second World War, several at least look to be wearing kit for the North Africa campaign.
21 Nov 2021 ArticleIcon Another phalanx forms
Linear-A have just released another new set. Coincidentally just a couple of days after we reviewed their set of Seleucid Phalanx infantry, they have now released their first set of Ptolemaic Phalanx Infantry, again for the Battle of Raphia in 217 BCE.
17 Nov 2021 ArticleIcon A new gun for the Second World War
Strelets have announced that a new gun for the Second World War is in development. It is the Italian Obice da 75/18 Modello 35, and it will be accompanied by the Italian artillery crew already previewed on their forum.
13 Nov 2021 ArticleIcon New Great War Italians
HaT have released several sets of Italians for World War I. These are:
  • 8221 - Italian Arditi
  • 8222 - Italian Heavy Weapons
  • 8223 - Italian Infantry
  • 8331 - Italian Sampler Pack
The last set is merely a combination of sprues from the other three. Although the HaT website is no longer being maintained, the sets have appeared at some US retailers.
3 Nov 2021 ArticleIcon The Scots keep coming
Strelets has revealed another of its future sets, and it is another collection of Napoleonic Highlanders. This time they are 'in square' (Set 287), so largely concerned with pointing their bayonet at an opponent. Masters have been published, so we imagine this is likely to be in the next, pre-Christmas release batch?
