Re: A personale lista of suggestions

Estoy totalmente de acuerdo con la guerra hispano-americana. Me encantaría poder tener tropas españolas.

Re: A personale lista of suggestions

I totally agree with the list of GC above especially, Mexicans (sombreros), FFL in Mexico and army of Emperor Maximillian, American Spanish war. Then I would add Vichy French and colonial troops for the North African Campaign and Mexican revolutions (Villa / Zapata).

Perhaps for Orion to take note: Green Berets, American special forces,US artillery,navy and air force and South Koreans and Australians all for Vietnam. French for Indo China (Dien Bien Phu) and infantry of countries involved in Korean War under the UN. Some civilians re Vietnam war will also be welcome.

Unbelievable great gaps of WW2: Norwegians, Dutch, Belgians, Greeks, Albanians, Yugolav Fascists, Chinese and Bulgarians - Mars please consider focusing on these armies of WW2.

Finally modern Egyptian army or other Arab army (Jordanian / Lebanese / Syrian) to pit against already existing IDF (Israeli artillery / air force will be most apprciated).Once referring to modern armies please remember French, Chinese and Ukrainian / Georgian armies.

I know life is made of dreams but sometimes dreams do come true.

P,S, Spanish army for RIF war.

Presumably the 'Tachanka' has at least one 'squeaky wheel'...?:blush:

Re: A personale lista of suggestions

I would like to see a lot of dark age/early medieval

Picts
Irish

It would also be nice to see an upgrade of the Carolingian sets you produced long to your modern day standards.

As ever I would like to see proper coverage of the Byzantine Empire, particularly 11/12th century that would provide another enemy to your Normans.

Re: A personale lista of suggestions

Poor Jerzy used to cheer for Byzantines.

Lots of good suggestions above. As a concept, either small standalone themes, or completing / complementing ones. So:

Colonial
*Afghan / Pathan tribesmen (like the various excellent Arab boxes)

Napoleonic
* Dutch-Belgian 1815 Heavy Cavalry

Ancient
* Elamites
* Nebucadnezzar’s Babylonians, including the lighter armed Chaldeans
* Arameans / Canaanites in long fringed robes; some infantry with “girded up loins” (kilt tucked into belt to aid rapid movement)


Re: A personale lista of suggestions

Oooh yes! Chariot wars stuff, Caesar kinda started on that with some excellent figures and then seemed to drop out of it. Like the look of the Linear a stuff but a bit put off by the price.
