Masterbox, by way of a postscript, have sent us details of a New range of figures which was previously featured here.
A few months ago, courtesy of Masterbox, we ran a series of reports covering a new direction in figure kits - the ACW.

Now, the company has sent us an update with images of:

3550 - 8th Pennsylvania Cavalry

Also shown is one of the figures from a set which will feature Indian scouts from the same period. Shortly, we hope to present some of the Confederate figures which are also 'In-Progress'...

The figures are 1/35th scale and will be produced in styrene.

Our thanks to Alexander of Masterbox Ltd. for the update!

Pat, That may have been MiniArt, but I think it was destined to be 1/32. Rudi

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! Any and all injection molded figures from Romans to the Napoleanic Era to Modern day are welcome. Especially since each set of Masterbox figures that comes out is better than the last. I just got the Masterbox "Road to the Rear" set and IMHO it is a phenomenal set. Great work Masterbox! Jeff

Hmmm, I don't know. Anything new in 1/35 styrene is always welcome, but I think this may have a limited audience. Dragon came out with two sets of 1/35 (or 1/32?) American CIvil War troops ... they sunk with nary a trace, and that line of products vanished.

I think this is a very good news. Why ? Because the subject is interesting Because you cannot find horses in movement in styrene todays at affordable price Because many of us cannot afford metal figures in 1/32 at 25 bearing in mind that they will massacre it Beacuse as said before conversion possibilityies are huge (I even think of franco prussian war conevrsions). And because it will please the figure or tank modellers that are fed up with the german ww2 offer in plastic (I'm in this case) to change a little without jumping in somoethin,g completely new and because you cannot make diorama with 1/32 figures (the price and it's hard to find similar figures in terms of uniform and area). So I think too that this set will sell. Anyway I will buy one of them. Julien

AMEN Julien, Variety is good!!!!!!! I have both 1/35 ICM WWI sets (British and German) and the Prussian (Franco/Prussian War) Infantry set from ICM (not molded very well at all) and I will get the French Line Infantry set as well. I will buy anything that is not run-of-the-mill. That is why I wish the more main stream manufacturers would do what Heller did years ago and produce some of the more obscure subjects, i.e., WWII French vehicles / soldiers and Colonial Subjects such as the Senegalese and Arab infantry, etc. I would / do buy any kits that are different and unique...in 1/35 of course.

This Ospreyhas references to native People serving on both sides wearing standard uniforms and various levels of native and European inspired clothing. The figure on the horse was the inspiratio for Alan Ball's Delaware Scout sculpt for Regimental S4 Miniatures: I don't know that there'd be any rejection of 1/35 figures by figure painters. Most dabble in various scales as it is, 75, 90 120 mm as well as busts. The announcement of the charging figures was quite well received on the figure sites this week. If either of these kits ever makes it to the retailers, I'd be first in l;ine to get them.

Are you kidding? They will sell. Just to have those horses in 1/35 styrene is great. Anyone will be able to clean up the horses and sand off the attachments and use them in a diorama as dead or horses running wild during a fire fight. The posibilities are endless. Keep them coming. Jose

It's already been said before I think, but I can imagine this set doing pretty well in the US. I'd love to get my hands on it at some point.
