For clarification, these were first revealed to the public in Salute 2012 today.
Damn you Perry brothers. More things to empty my wallet.
If so... that'd be fantastic!
I have too many project armies to list...

Oh wow... I gotta get me some of that!
Yeah those are in 28mm, they have some more pics and info on their site about them. No release date yet and a platoon per box.
Yes I saw them in the cabinet and they are very nice.
At long last! The Perry twins are going to have big sales of these, including to 40k Imperial Guard players. After this, please do WWI, the Great Nordic War or Romans.

Should they explore the Eastern Front, my wallet will cry at the sheer amount of Soviets I would buy. Seriously... aside from an actual WWII army, I can fully imagine a soviet themed 40k army too. I would buy many, many, perry russians. Many. All the Russians. Ever. I would bankrupt myself with buying enough plastic russians to reenact Stalingrad at 1/1 scale.
Seriously, Perry twins, if plastic russian WWII infantry are ever released from your stable then you can have all my money.
Warlord games are working on plastic Soviets...
Plastic Soldier Company already has 28 mm multi-part Soviet infantry, heavy weapons and anti-tank guns available. However, they are not particularly multi-part (and not quite Perry quality).
Speaking of Soviets, I just yesterday picked a book about WWII Soviet uniforms - "Stalin's War" from Crowood Press. Looking pretty promising, though not quite on the level of the two books about British uniforms that they have published.
I'm not so keen on the Plastic soldier company's 28mm soviets; they're are a straight scale up of their 15mm plastics for me it shows in the lack of detail. The (German) plastics I've seen from Warlord's Bolt Action range are nicely detailed and I guess any plastics are a bit easier to repose than their metal counterparts.
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see plastic Soviets from the Perrys as well; but I have a feeling the two companies won't want to step on each others toes.
I started collecting Soviets myself a few months ago (so far have the Red Army box set (metal figures) and a T34/85, both from Warlord). Thanks for the tip on the book, any sources are gratefully received, so far I only have the Osprey Soviet Rifleman book, and have watched a few of the episodes of the Soviet Storm series on the Military channel.
They look stunning finally they offers some plastic ww2 infantry!
