Title: New WWII French releases!
Post by: Leon on 04 April 2016, 01:31:27 AM
We've got a bumper batch of WWII releases this week, all ready and available in time for Salute pre-orders!  We've got 34 new codes here, expanding our WWII French range to include all kinds of foot types, a variety of new artillery pieces and even some cavalry.  We've also got a new WWII French army pack just about ready, so we'll add that very soon.

Lovely lovely lovely. Hopefully the Engineers will put on a few different hats & get released under other nationalities! Tank crew too.

Hello Leon

Wonderful news. Now I can scrabble through all the lists I've made to see what I need. Just to confirm - are the FRE 24 Advancing in tunic (vareuse) or greatcoat?

The French range paints up really nicely.

Very nice, I can see some purchases to round out my 1940 French forces.

The 25mm AA gun looks very nice - worth following the link to the store as there are photos of all the new codes, and very nice the look too.

Brilliant!

Once the Canon de 105mm with spoked wheels comes out, brace yourselves for many requests for different crews, as the Schneider could find a home in several other ranges, notably:

WW1 - French (of course)  and Russian (as the 107mm M10)
Interwar - Spain  (both sides), maybe Italians in Ethiopia
WW2 - Finns and Soviets (as the M10/30), Poles, Belgians, Italians, Yugoslavs and, after capture, Germans too.

If you ever produce a split trail version, the Poles can have even more as the wz29

We'll be working on this after Salute, so it shouldn't be far away.  We just need to do some minor surgery on the original model, as the wheels were modelled onto the gun, and then we can supply it with the spoked wheels as well.
