4 Jul 2019 ArticleIcon New reinforcements announced

  • 200 - Highlanders Standing Order Arms
  • 201 - British Infantry Standing Order Arms
  • 209 - Austrian Grenadiers in Winter Dress on the March
  • 211 - Prussian Line Infantry Standing Order Arms

In addition, there is one change in title. Set 223, which was French Infantry in Overcoats at Ease, has now become Confederate Firing.

These largely match the teaser images Strelets have been putting on their forum recently, and they tell us that some but probably not all will be included in the next batch of releases before the end of the year.

1 Jul 2019 ArticleIcon Part-new First To Fight
First To Fight have released their latest set, '37mm Anti-Tank Gun with Uhlan Crew', which has an older gun kit with new cavalry figures.
21 Jun 2019 ArticleIcon New anti-tank gun
First To Fight have revealed their next release, which is the Bofors 37mm anti-tank gun, as used during the invasions of 1939. They already make a model of this, but the set title speaks of 'lance support', and the crew figures are different to the earlier set, so we are guessing this might be a (lancer) cavalry crew with the earlier model. As releases are monthly, this is likely to be available in a relatively short period of time.

Strelets have announced work on a new set of British infantry for the Second Boer War. Entitled 'British Infantry 1899-1902', the set M133 would seem to be a replacement for their earlier set 038 covering the same subject, but judging by the posted masters the quality of the new set will be far superior.
