    Re: Historical plastic kits in 28 mm

    Gripping Beast said on a recent Facebook page that armoured Late Roman cavalry was being worked on already (unarmoured horses), to be released 'around Easter'. Goths to come later too.

    As for Victrix, the latest version of their very long list of supposedly upcoming releases is:

    "VXA030 Gallic Warriors & VXA031 Gallic Naked Fanatics Dec 2017
    VXA032 Gallic Cavalry TBC
    VXA033 Greek Light Cavalry TBC
    VXA034 Early Imperial Roman Cavalry and mounted generals TBC

    All the above are 100% digitally designed and are either at the tooling process or waiting to be tooled.

    The following sets are either at the design stage or awaiting a design brief:

    Republican Roman Cavalry
    Celtic War Chariot plus armoured warriors & personality figures
    EIR war machines and archers
    2/3 sets of ancient cavalry, detail to follow
    3/4 sets of Dark Age Warriors, details to be announced later
    2 sets of 28mm WWII, details to follow
    2 new Napoleonic sets, details to follow"


    (The original list in the newsletter had the naked Gauls as Jan 2018, but a later email said both were to arrive at the same time, immediately after Christmas.)
    The Dark Age sets intrigue me especially, but with Victrix' release schedule those are unlikely to see the light of day for years to come, so not getting too excited at the same time. The various sets with options for generals and personalities are also interesting.

    EDIT: Just happened to get an email from GB (personal, no newsletter): heavy Late Roman cavalry next indeed, followed by Gothic heavy cavalry, and after that they have plans for Roman light cavalry (which would include mounted archers) as well apparently!

    Thanks for the info about Victrix - that is quite a lenghty schedule, considering their release rate. Anyway, good to know that the Gauls will be released soon - I think I have seen some digital renders of those quite a time ago.

    The Victrix elephant kit looks great. It comes with 4 different crew options.

    If you are going to make a plastic elephant, then providing extra crew options is probably a good choice to increase the customer base. I presume that the excess crews can also be converted into extra infantry etc.

    On other news, it seems that Warlord Games is going to re-release the Wargames Factory plastic samurai and ashigaru with new packacing.

    I look forward to the Asiatic Elephant kit for other Successor forces.

    For those waiting for the Conquest set of medieval knights, they will become officially available on the 2nd of January from Conquest, and will probably start reaching various retailers soon after that.

    Conquest Games set of Medieval Knights added to the list.

    Next expected releases are from Rubicon. Besides the usual WWII products (this time anti-tank guns and some more Sherman tanks) they are also bringing out two fence sets.
