Re: Uncovered periods

Add my name to the list of people wanting Mexican Revolution sets!

Re: Uncovered periods

I tried very hard to stay on topic but a few sets for conflicts already partly covered slipped in somehow

the burma campaign in WW2

WW2 BEF infantry

WW2 Greek infantry

WW2 artillery crews: U. S., British / Commonwealth, Japanese, German in ankle boots (late war, FJ, Mountain troops)

French Colonial Troops 1870-1941

Boxer War: Chinese Imperial infantry

Russo -Japanese war (if cleverly done, these could be used for Boxer Rebellion and WW1 too)

Balkan wars 1912-13 (if cleverly done, these could be used for WW1 too)

Franco-Prussian War 1870/71: cavalry, artillery

Italian Wars of Independece 1848-1870

Austro-Hungarian troops for the war from 1848 to 1866 against Italy, France, Denmark and Prussia

Re: Uncovered periods

I vote for South American Liberation Wars San Martin (The Andes campaign)and Simon Bolivar.



Re: Uncovered periods

Anything post WW2. French Indochina would be a great start, but also Korean War winter figures (USMC, Chinese, Commonwealth), Arab Israeli Wars, Iran Iraq, African Bush Wars, NATO WARPAC, etc...

This is a huge gap. We have all the tanks, planes, helos, vehicles, but no figures!!!

Re: Uncovered periods

Feudal Japan, Koreans to go with them, modern figures would be a good idea (tho I have most of them set with having the Esci WARPAC set three times, plus Esci and Ultima Ratio SPECNAZ as well), HYW French, Mounted Sergeants, mercenaries, foot knights, mounted knights, Irish, Scots, Napoleonic french mounted Chasseurs, Spanish Cavalry, Spanis Artillery, WW1 late war British infantry, WW1 late war German infantry, WW2 late war commandos in berets, American War of Independence, etc. etc...

Boxer Rebellion

I may be an outlyer here, but I'd really like a series of proper Boxer Rebellion troops here. Whatever has been produced so far could really be improved massively.

There are also some key WW1 sets that are very much missing, in particular Romanians and Bulgarians. Greeks would also be nice, in particular the Evzones that fought so bravely in WW1.

Re: Boxer Rebellion

2nd/3rd century Roman legions.

Fill the gap between the familiar 1st century legionaries and the almost Byzantine "late" Roman sets.

Would not necessarily require new "Barbarian" types, as these legions spent as much time fighting each other for their respective nominees to the purple.

Though we still need some decent Goth/Vandal/Frank era German infantry units.

Also support calls for Anglo-Indian wars of 19th century; native armies would make great figures.

Re: Boxer Rebellion

Russo-Japanese war.
