WW2 range

It's been a couple of years since I heard rumours of this range being close to production - any news you can give us Peter?

 

Particularly interested in what theatres of operation you plan to do, and rough dates for those if possible (or at least something like "we're going to do Normandy first, then the early Desert stuff, then move on to the Eastern Front")

 

Oh, and while I'm here - how many tanks to a pack, and how much will the tank packs cost? If they're going to vary, then for someone standard like Panzer IVH.

 

Cheers!

Tigers, King and JagdTigers for me. Not forgetting the Easy 8's


Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.

The first releases will be available at the Joy of Six show.  These will certainly include infantry and support, but may not yet feature artillery and vehicles. We are still ironing out some issues with the latter and time will beat is for the former.  However, both will be forthcoming as we expand the range in the coming months.

We will be starting with Normandy 1944 and will then probably shift to Eastern front for the same period.  After that is still up for debate as the Igor and myself discuss pros and cons.

Thanks for letting us know! I'm most interested in the desert stuff myself, so I'm guessing it'll be a while before they're out.

Infantry and supports will do for me to start with. Late 44 and the Bulge is my main area of interest..

Were the initial releases available at JoS? If so, what were they, and when will they be up on the site to buy?

 

And when will the early desert stuff be out? :D

Pete gave me two strips of British infantry at Claymore.  He said they'd be released later in the year along with Germans and Americans.  Infantry and a range of tanks, though he wasn't specific about timing. 

I painted some up to a basic wargames standard and there are pics, including some size comparisons, on my blog at http://dereksweetoys.com/2015/08/baccus-6mm-wwii/

Pete's got the crack dealer technique off pat. I need more.

The update is that I was not happy with the quality of the patterns for the Germans and Americans - the masters were beautifully sculpted, but something went wrong in the moulding process.  As making a mould is very hard on the sculpts themselves, it has meant that we'v had to back to square one, and Tony is now making new German and US infantry for us.   This has put has back several months.  The British were in a later mould and came out beautifully as you can see.
