The toy soldier show in Chicago is around the corner now. I bet there will some new products & news. Plus some surprises!! We will have to wait for now. But until then I have some news to share from Russia. The first is from Engineer Basevich. They have two news sets in 1/32 scale that they are releasing.
The first one is Set #28 “First cavalry army. Civil War in Russia 1918-21”
The second is Set # 29 “Red commanders. Civil war in Russia 1918-21″
These sets will be cast in different colors. The details are really nice. Here are some more pictures below.
Next we have some preview of 5 different sets that are from another Russian company called Biplant. The new historical based figure sets appear to be new and not copies of other brands. The historical figure sets are about 60mm to 65mm in size. The Fantasy set are recasts from a company called Oritet. I am not too sure about the scale of the fantasy figures.
Here are the two fantasy Amazon based figure sets. The first is a set of dragon figures. They are fantasy female warriors. The second is of a dragon and another female warrior.
Here are the Gauls. They look good. Some could be used as Saxons or Vikings by trimming the helmets and hand axe.
Here are the Romans. I think a few look more like Greeks.
The last set is of Dark Age Rus warriors. They are really nice. I think the price tag on all of these sets is around $10. Not bad at all. I will get a couple sets of the Rus & Gauls for a review in the near future. They should be found on eBay somewhere soon.
That is it for now. I should have another post up this Sunday. Thank you for reading.
