    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    It's incredible the number of plastic historical kits in 28mm that have come available over the past decade. We might be a little bit spoilt ...

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    If I am not mistaken, early next year we will be able to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Perry ACW infantry release - the first 28 mm hard plastic kit on the market.

    As for upcoming releases, Warlord Games has now revealed that they are going to release plastic "Berlin Houses" for WWII. These will be initially coming out as part of their new Battle for Berlin boxed set, but I would presume that they will be eventually released also on their own.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Will the Battle For Berlin set include any new plastics or just previously released kits?

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    As far as I can tell, the only new plastics in the Battle for Berlin set will be the buildings - the tanks and infantry have been previously released. That said, the set will also contain resin and metal items, some of which should be brand new (not that they are very relevant for this thread).

    On the Napoleonics front, Perrys have shown more three-ups for their next set of French cavalry, first previewed at the last Salute. Apparently some of these were just completed, so I would not expect to see them released anytime soon due to the time needed for tooling.

    Regarding the Berlin House, there might be a chance that it will not be an original 1/56 scale product, but instead another release of Italeri 1/72 scale plastics under Warlord brand. I presume that we will find out more once the actual product is out.

    I just cruised through the Italeri dioramas section but didn't see anything that looked like the buildings in the Warlord box set.

    This Italeri set looks suspiciously like the one in the Warlord boxed set:

    You are right; weird though- that's not the same site that I got when I did a search..

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Those farm animals look promising - I did actually buy some metal sheep and oxen earlier this year.

    Back to the actual releases, I added the Fireforge Byzantine spearmen to the list, as they presumably have been released by now.

    WWII enthusiasts mgiht like to hear that the latest releases by Rubicon have also started arriving in stores, and therefore I have added them to the list. There seems to be M4A2 Shermans (two variant kits), a British truck, expansion set for M3 halftrack and a German 37 mm anti-tank gun. It is interesting that Rubicon bundles their new products into quarterly releases, the only other miniatures company that I can recall doing that is HäT.

    According to my latest issue of WSS, they are out but I haven't seen them anywhere.

    Those Fireforge Byzantines should be available at least from North Star and Caliver Books.

    As for upcoming releases, Gripping Beast has shown pictures of their upcoming Dark Age cavalry set, which has been under work for a while. They are already on pre-order status, so should be coming out in near future. They seem to be relatively generic looking unarmoured cavalry, and with head swaps etc. there might be a fair amount of conversion potential.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    The Dark Age cavalry may be a real seller - unlike their archer set, which I found the definition of disappointing.

    That animal set slipped me until now. I find myself wanting at least 10 sprues to start...

    That Warlord stone bridge has been out for a while already - and like a number of their other plastic terrain items, it is actually a re-packaged Italeri 1:72 scale terrain item.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    I was not aware of that. I have one right in front of me, and it looks quite usable for 1:56.

    But if you decide not to add repacked 1:20 kits (and I know there are some in that Italeri:WG cooperation) then I wil not complain. Or you could add them with a warning (p72 - previously released as 1:72)

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Those re-packaged Italeri 1:72 terrain kits will stay out of the list for the time being, though maybe I should address them somehow - they seem to cause confusion every now and then.

    On the more positive side, the Warlord kits for Marder III and Char B1 Bis are now available. Interestingly the Char B1 is the first plastic French WWII set from Warlord - I am wondering if we will see more plastic French sets in future (e.g. infantry or Somuas).

    The Victrix elephants have also finally been released. Can't remember when they were first mentioned, but it certainly took quite some time.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Victrix kits sometimes take quite a while from initial announcements until the final release. That said, while adding the elephant to the list, I noticed that Victrix has at some point released a set of early imperial Roman auxiliary infantry that had been missing from the list.

    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    I doubt we will be seeing any further releases this year, so maybe it is time to consider what might be coming out next year.

    1.) Conquest: the sprues for the new medieval knights set are apparently ready, so I would expect to see these pretty early next year once they get packacing and distribution sorted out.
    2.) Perry: their next set of Napoleonic cavalry is undergoing tooling, so I would expect that to be released at the Salute 2018 latest.
    3.) Gripping Beast: supposedly working on a set of armoured dark age cavalry to go with their recently released unarmoured kit. I would not held my breath for a release date.
    4.) Rubicon: various WWII infantry and vehicle sets under work. Likely to continue with their practice of releasing a bundle of products quarterly.
    5.) Warlord: at least farm animals and t38 panzer have been shown in public this autumn.
    6.) Victrix: I have no idea what they have in the pipeline at the moment.
    7.) Fireforge: not aware of any historical kits under work by them (though they have previewed a fantasy knights kit somewhere).
    8.) Renedra: I have no idea what they have in the pipeline at the moment.
