PROTOTYPES

Sometimes we are sent images by manufacturers of items that they intend to poduce in the future. We have no extra details, such as price or an exact release date, but want to share these with you anyway.


John Jenkins

John has shared a totally new series with us: El Cid and the Reconquista, including Almoravid opponents.

First images of the Vikings have arrived, and they look fantastic!

We received a number of new images from John, showing the upcoming 1st Virginia Cavalry and JEB Stuart, Panzer I variants and StuG crews, as well as Carthaginian and Roman troops for the warships, as well as British artillery for Saratoga, Numidian and Iberian cavalry. On the Roman side, there are new sculps of infantry and their commanders, including a very nice looking svculpt of Scipio Africanus. He also mentioned the release of some Elephants next year!

John sent us some images yesterday of upcoming releases in the Norman range, including Breton cavalry and Norman armoured as well as unarmoured archers. This is going to become a fantastic range!
The King Tiger is another release we can't wait to get our hands on!
We have received the first part of the Aztec compound wall, but here are some images already of the gate and the staircases.
In the ACW range, John has sets planned for the First Bull Run battle, including Stonewall Jackson, as well as a number of new and colourful additions to the Fur Trade (formerly known as Whiskey, Scalps and Furs) range

 

King & Country

We have just received images of the first two ‘masters’ of the long-awaited and much anticipated Australian Army Land Rovers...   The first to be released will be the ‘Military Police’ model complete with side doors and a fixed full canvas canopy. Driving this vehicle will be a Military Police driver complete with ‘slouch halt’ and MP brassard. This finely detailed model is a Series II Short Wheel Base Land Rover of the kind used in extensive service with the Australian Army from 1958 onwards. As you can see in the attached photos a two-man Military Police add-on set will also be available.

The second Land Rover to be released later will be the ‘Patrol Vehicle’ version complete with a driver and a separate SLR propped up next to him. K&C are planning an add-on set of 2 possibly 3 sitting riflemen to go with this vehicle.

Thomas Gunn

Thomas Gunn sent us these images of the Winter version of the PzIV and new sculpts for the Boer War as well as a Roman tent and a new set of crates, this time with a cloth cover. This set will definitely serve a lot of purposes and come in handy for multiple dioramas.
