New Italeri ACW Farmhouse 6179

Posted by Traveller1865 on 28 May 2017, 11:53

Italeri have announced their new ACW set, titled "Civil War farmhouse battle set", with buildings and figures, the set seems to contain Italeri's own figures, infantry and cavalry for both sides, the Union artillery set and a barn and a farmhouse in MDF with etched details. So sadly no new figures from Italeri and the artillery set is probably the more common one and not the out of print big set.

An AWI set is also planned for release in 2017.

This has now been released and available to purchase and called "Farmhouse battle", no new content besides the buildings, however a nice surprise is that the kit contains the guns, the gatling gun and siege mortar and more from the now out of print kit 6032 Union artillery set! So a quite expensive set for little new content but a new chance to own the rare kit and new ACW style buildings!

The price was, well, quite steep! But houses do cost, and there are some in the set. Our friend Conny at Fredericus Rex has also some American buildings. Maybe some can be an alternative, and you won't get figures you don't want.

For me this is a collectors item. I have the old ESCI-Sets in my mind, that teally rare and expensive in our days.

But talking about the buildings: the Greenline ones are better, for sure.

I’m still more interested in the Russian houses. Need some more for ww2 Eastern front. Hope to see them sold seperately from the old figure sets.
Got a nice Hamlet build from the Pegasus sets though!
