Redbox regularly visit and read the Strelets forum, and will answer questions there.

Just one of the many reasons I love this forum.

Haron--

What is the purpose for having different brand names? Why not just make them all Redbox? I really like your work, btw.

@redbox/alliance:

Hi. I'm a big fan and consumer of your dark alliance range of orcs and half orcs. I have a suggestion:

Please make a set of half orc swordsmen in full armor (could also add in more variety with crossbows).

The current range has 2 half orc swordsmen in set 4. These have thier shield raised as if to form testudo and are not the best to create a regular marching unit. The remainder of sword and shield half orcs are depicted in lighter leather armor and thus look more like scouts.

As I am currently creating a massed half orc army, this new set would help immensely.

Here everything is very simple. The ORION brand - all this masters of the first sculptor with which we began. RedBox is a work of different sculptors. Now their three. Alliance is not historical sets.

Still I would very much appreciate a heavily armored swordsmen half orc box, in the vein of how the pikemen box was all pikemen.

These guys would appreciate the support

Dear Haron - can you spill some beans on the Vietnam War release you've mentioned on Strelets' forum?
