Of these, the majority are Napoleonic, with a few sets for the Second Boer War, American Civil War, War of the Spanish Succession and a couple of early medieval Saxons. Two had not been previously announced. They are:

  • 249 - Confederates Firing
  • M139 - Highlanders in Attack 1899-1902
It is thought that this bumper crop may appear mid December, but we shall wait and see as always.
15 Nov 2019 ArticleIcon Cavalry get a command
First To Fight have revealed their latest set, which is a command set for their Polish Uhlans on horseback for 1939. We assume this will be released shortly, as is usual, although their products are slow to reach much of the World and we still wait to get hold of their first set of mounted Uhlans!
14 Nov 2019 ArticleIcon All roads lead to Dacia
Linear-A have revealed a new set in their future plans. This time the title is 'Trajan's Legions versus Dacians', and it is further labelled as 'Set 1', so it seems we can expect several on the subject. Linear-A now have quite a long list of future releases, but wisely refrain from putting release dates to any of them.
13 Nov 2019 ArticleIcon Gladiators are ready!
The recently announced set of Gladiators from Ultima Ratio has started appearing at retailers.
5 Nov 2019 ArticleIcon Strelets medieval
Strelets have announced another new set in the pipeline, and this time it returns to their medieval range. The new set is 'Medieval City Levy', so a general set covering many potential nationalities. There are no clues yet as to whether this will be part of the releases for the end of this year as no masters have yet been posted.
1 Nov 2019 ArticleIcon Esci reissues appear
Italeri have finally released the latest two figure sets from their Esci back catalogue. The sets represent Warsaw Pact and NATO troops from the 1980s, but as they are just the old Esci sets there is nothing new here.
25 Oct 2019 ArticleIcon 1701 infantry are released
Strelets have announced that their set of British Infantry in Advance 1701-1714 has started to be sent to retailers, slightly earlier than their promised month-end date. This seems to be a single release, with a full batch expected around December.
22 Oct 2019 ArticleIcon New Brits for Marlborough
Strelets have announced a second set for their new War of the Spanish Succession range. This one is entitled 'British Infantry in Attack 1701-1714', so a match for their recent 'in Advance' announcement. That first set is promised for release around the end of this month, but it is unclear whether this new set will appear at the same time.
12 Oct 2019 ArticleIcon Anglo-Saxons get new life
Strelets have added two more sets to their future releases list, but neither have any new figures. The first is M140, named 'Anglo-Saxon Fyrd', and is four copies of the unique sprue from their big set 912 'Hastings 1066: Anglo-Saxon Army'. The second set is M141, 'Housecarls of King Harold', and contains the unique figures from their big set 911 'Stamford Bridge'. Although the figures have all been seen before, many customers like to have access to these without having to buy the much larger big set, so this answers that demand.
11 Oct 2019 ArticleIcon Gladiators, ready?
Seems we missed a new set announcement a few days ago, because some dealers are listing a new product from Ultima Ratio. The set, entitled simply 'Gladiators', is not yet available, but we are promised 24 figures in 16 poses.
