Re: What I really really want.

A lot of people seem to have ignored the one set stipulation and talked about whole ranges for a certain war or era. If that was the question I would nominate Byzantines in numerous periods. However if it was one set I'd have to go with an earlier suggestion with the 1940 BEF.

Re: What I really really want.

A WoSS Camp/Waggon Train set complete with carts, horses, drovers, camp followers and soldiers at ease. A perfect supplement to the excellent and ever growing WoSS range from Strelets. Ideally, in a 'Big Box format, with a number of personalities on foot/mounted. Just the sort of thing that Strelets have been good at producing in the past, and bound to be very popular now too!!

Re: What I really really want.

Zanzibari forces from the 1896 Anglo Zanzibar War, or if that is not possible, Skinner’s Horse

Re: What I really really want.

WW1 Serbs for 1914-15 Infantry and Artillery.
Other Balkan Armies for Balkan Wars /WW1 as well as more RCW sets would also be nice.

Re: What I really really want.

OK...because you asked:

Spanish Foreign Legion in 1920

British, Scots and Prussian Firing Lines (with fixed bajonets) in 1815 :grimacing:

Re: What I really really want.

I am currently finishing off a number of Australian matilda tanks. First problem was to get a matilda in 1/72 in the UK. Had to order them from China as western manufactures seem not bothered to make not Commonwealth subjects!

The next stage was to get a few Australian figures to go with the models. The Airfix and Matchbox (reboxed Revell) look good for their age but unfortunately on 20mm and 22mm respectively (1/76). Will have to build the Aifix 1/76 matilda I have in my stash to go with the figures!

The Australian or Commonwealth (better not say Empire!) troops would be an excellent subject that is not being covered in 1/72. Especially good figures worth looking at are the Matchbox mule and handler and the Airfix wounded with leg in splint.
