Well, if they've taken it on I don't see them letting it just sit and gather dust. They could have done that by leaving it where it was and not spending the cash. They will want to invest in it to broaden their range. The question will be "how quickly". They didn't let the grass grow when they bought BAM, did they? Al
As I mentioned in another thread, it is great to see this 'Crimean War by Hicks' poject going on. Warlord has secured my loyalty for the forseeable future by aquiring this range, that's for sure! To begin with I am thinking of getting a small British line regiment:2x Centre Coy = 16 troops, £20.001x Flank Coy = 8 troops £10.001x Command = 6 troops £8.00 (+ some £s for some decent flags, any recommendations?) 30 figures for 38 quid. Certainly more than the £17.00 for the lovely Landwehr regiment I'll be painting shortly, but still good value. No question I'd prefer plastic infantry but I really do like the period and the sculpts.So lets see what else Paul&Co will have in store for us, I definitely need Guard, Artillery, The Light Brigade, a Florence Nightingale miniature attending the wounded, Russians with spikey hats, ..and maybe even some frogs. Cheers S.P.
I would like to but some how I just can't get excited about this range.The sculpts appear OK but nothing special.I admit I am a little rusty of this period and maybe it may grow on me.For now I have just acquired a copy of "Charge of the Light Brigade" on DVD at a good price of £5.00. I have been looking for this DVD for over 6 months now and it appears to be back in production again.
Hi, I’m relatively new here.I purchased a pack of each of the initial release of this range from Radetzky.They are excellent figures. I’m looking forward to the Russians which I believe were next up. I really hope that there will be more poses than march-attack for the line infantry. I would consider firing and loading poses a necessity. “ Apart from "in the pipeline sculpts" I think Warlord need to develop plastics for this range as soon as possible…”I agree that plastics would be nice, but I’d like to see Paul Hicks sculpt the masters for them. It would be nice to see if the Warlord folks could arrange that. It doesn’t make much sense to produce plastic figures for the range if they won’t be in the same sculpting style.
well we are always looking at ther release schedule folks. plastic Crimean is a strong contender indeed. metals.. we shall also do a Mary Seacole (sp) if we can as a camp follower/ vivandiere vignette as she is much in vogue these days rather than owl hugging miss nightingale... unless you all tell us different.. Yes doing some Frenchies would be good, i never thought I would write that! john s
