||Three new announcements
This week has seen three new sets announced. First we have two from Mars. They are:
Since Mars usually only announce new sets shortly before they become available, we are expecting both these quite soon.
- 72125 - US Machine Gunners D-Day
- 72126 - US Rangers D-Day
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.

||New Imperials as a release draws near
Strelets have announced a new set for their War of the Spanish Succession range. This time the subject is Austrian Infantry on the March. Although this set will not be part of the next release, Strelets have said that that release will hopefully be in the next week or two.

||WWII Horse Artillery!
It seems that First To Fight are preparing another set with figures. Their set 084 is entitled Polish Horse Artillery, and seems to contain a four-man crew for a gun.

Linear-A have revealed another set of ancients is on the drawing board. They have announced that their set 057 will be of Neo-Assyrian cavalry, which will match the Neo-Assyrian infantry set 056 already in preparation.

||New Linear-A release
Linear-A have announced the release of a new set, number 25. This is the fifth of the 'Hannibal Crosses the Alps' series, and the subtitle this time is 'Celtic Salassi / Taurini Tribe vs. Carthaginians'.

Strelets have added another new title to their list - M149 Arabs in Ambush.

||Hot new set
Strelets continue to add new sets to their catalogue, and their latest is a return to the desert once more. This time the title is 'DAK Desert Patrol', and as images of the completed figures are already published, it would seem this is another set for the next batch of releases, which would seem to be very soon.

Strelets have ended some online speculation by posting new masters for their old Crimean War set 903 'Thin Red Line'. This suggests that they intend to rerelease this large set with new Highland infantry. A comment on their forum makes us think that the rest of the set will be unchanged.

||The first of the Imperials from Strelets
Strelets have announced another new set, and while it is a further element for the War of the Spanish Succession, it is their first for the Imperial forces. The chosen subject is Austrian Cuirassiers in helmets, and the masters already appear to be complete.
