    Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    I hope that some still remember the list of 28 mm hard plastic kits that I started on Warseer a couple of years ago. That list seems to have gone missing somewhere when Warseer got reborn, so I thought it would be time to re-start it here. However, since the original list had become long and a bit unwieldy, I will split it into multiple posts this time.

    Please notice that this list is intended to cover only those items that are fully plastic, so variant sets of existing plastics repacked with extra metal or resin bits are not listed. As an exception, some kits where plastic sprues are complemented by metal command figures are also covered, but only if those plastics are unique (ie. not available in other sets). Also kits that are not yet available on market are not listed. Vehicles and terrain are covered where they are specifically designed for 28 mm or 1/56 scale.

    Individual sprues available directly only from manufacturer are not listed, except in the cases of horses and weapons & accessories. Many manufacturers provide some of their sprues available also individually from their website, in addition to kits available through retailers, but these are not generally covered here - interested persons should check the manufacturer websites if they are interested in purchasing individual sprues.

    On the listing, figure kits will be organised by time period, and further grouped into related groups inside each time period. The names of the kits will be followed by an abbreviation of the manufacturer, placed in brackets. The manufacturer abbreviations are as follows:

    - Agema Miniatures (AM)
    - Conquest Games (CG)
    - Eccentric Miniatures (EM)
    - Fireforge Games (FG)
    - Gripping Beast (GB)
    - HäT Industrie (HI)
    - Immortal Miniatures (IM)
    - Perry Miniatures (PM)
    - Plastic Soldier Company (PSC)
    - Pro Gloria (PG)
    - Renedra Limited (RE)
    - Rubicon Models (RM)
    - Tabletop Workshop (TW)
    - Victrix Limited (VL)
    - Wargames Factory (WF)
    - Warlord Games (WG)

    Update: since some of the kits have passed from manufacturer to another during the years, I have now introduced (XX -> YY) notation for manufacturer, indicating kits that were originally designed by company XX but are currently manufactured/distributed by company YY.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    I have tried to update the list with the kits that have been released since June 2016, but I may have missed some. If you spot any sets that have been released between July 2016 and June 2017 but are missing from the list, please mention them. However, for kits released before July 2016 the list should be complete.

    As for upcoming releases, Warlord is apparently getting ready to release the Landsknechts that they obtained from Pro Gloria some years back, Victrix has been previewing ancient Gallic cavalry, Rubicon has been showing designs for WWII infantry and anti-tank guns, and Perrys showed some Napoleonic cavalry at the last Salute.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Glad to have this back, thanks for taking the time to write it all up again!

    Victrix has recently released two more sets of Romans, Early Imperial Roman Legionaries 'advancing' as well as 'attacking' - with Auxilia coming up, as well as Celtic infantry, cavalry, the long-awaited Greek cavalry and plastic elephants. Will be a good few months before all of these are actually on sale though - the release schedule is rather open to change and delays.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Victrix Imperial Legionaries added to this list now. I knew those were under work, but had not realised they had actually been released by now.

    Also I have been informed that Warlord now sells separately the WF apocalypse survivor weapon frames, in case anybody is looking for modern weapons in plastic. I have added these to the list of weapons and accessories - while also removing the Numidian weapon sprue that is no longer available on its own.

    Also the horse section might need to be updated, I will see to that a bit later.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Horse section updated: WF ancient and Persian horses seem to be no longer available on their own, but their Samurai cavalry sprue is available separately through Warlord.

    Also there were some minor terrain additions from Renedra missing from the list (railing with a gate and American style gravestones).

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Took a while, but Warlord Games has finally released the formerly Pro Gloria Landsknechte!

    Landsknechts added to the list, as well as the Victrix set of Macedonian/Greek/Successor heavy cavalry that was released recently.

    As for upcoming releases, Rubicon is planning to release another bunch of WWII vehicles this month.

    As for the list itself, I have now introduced (XX -> YY) notation for manufacturers to indicate kits that were originally designed by company XX but are currently manufactured/distributed by company YY. This applies to various sets from Immortal miniatures, Wargames Factory, Tabletop Workshop and Pro Gloria.

    Good call, makes it easier to find information like reviews of those kits.

    GB, no doubt you have seen Blood Red Skies from Warlord.

    Those Blood Red Skies airplanes are 1:200 scale, so not exactly designed to go with 28 mm models. Actual 1:56 aircraft would be a bit unwieldy for a tabletop air combat game, though. As for the 28 mm pilot ace models included in the advance bundles, those are presumably metal.

    Right... I forgot about the not 28mm part...

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Back to the 1:56 scale products, the latest bunch of Rubicon releases (including jeeps and German motorcycles) has started hitting stores, so I have added them to the list.

    Rubicon is supposedly also working on infantry sets, though I would not hold my breath for a release date.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Warlord has announced the release of their plastic Opel Blitz / Maultier vehicle set, so I have added it to the list.

    Otherwise, I am not aware of any impending releases.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Warlord has made the German passenger frame, included in the Opel Blitz set, also available separately as a direct only item:

    https://store.warlordgames.com/produ...ssengers-frame

    I found this interesting enough to add it as an item to the WWII vehicle section, even though it is a direct only item. Plenty of potential for use with various plastic/resin vehicles as well as possibly seated on ground. On another note, Warlord is also about to release plastic King Tiger kit for WWII Germans.

    On the medieval front, Renedra has released a breached wall set for their castle, Fireforge has shown previews of their plastic Byzantine spearmen frame, and Conquest has shown some pictures of their upcoming knight set (12th century, mounted).
