First To Fight 2018 news

Although this meanwhile well-established polish company keeps constantly releasing new kits, only a few of them contained figures so far.
Their latest set should again be appealing for 1/72 figures enthusiasts with focus on WWII "Fall Weiß", the invasion of Poland 1939.

Link to the announcement at their FB site:

Retailers list their brand new Polish Artillery Crew now and from what we can see the set includes 16 multi-part figures in 6 poses.
I am hopeful that they will be better than their lukewarm Hät comrades.

Some sprue pictures of the polish artillery crews surfaced at Missing-Lynx and subsequently at Henks today.

http://henk.fox3000.com/firsttofight.htm
(you need to scroll down to box #55)

As already mentioned, 16 multipiece hardplastic figures in 6 poses.
The box also offers a good number of spare heads, rifles & shells. :yeah:

Maybe not entirely up to Preiser quality, but a very welcomed development anyway.
Will buy a few boxes and try to improve the generally mediocre to poor Hät crews.

Already curiously waiting for FTFs upcoming 1939 german arty crews! :-D

The next FtF figure set seems to be available soon now.

As already mentioned, it‘s early WWII german artillery crew.

http://henk.fox3000.com/firsttofight/56/01.jpg

Only 14 figures in hopefully 6 poses this time.

Will wait for explicit preview pictures before taking them into consideration.

FtF‘s german artillery crew figures are available since last week.
14 hard plastic figures in 7 poses, some of them multi-piece style.
Additionally the set contains an adequate number of rifles & different artillery shells. :yeah:

Their relevant FB notification:

And a random glimpse at the content of the new box:

The 1939 polish & german crews look like worthwhile expansions to earlier sets.

The next FtF figure set is available at european online shops now.

#57 - Polish AA-gun crew

16 figures in 7 useful poses.

Would love to see some polish cavalry from FtF as well.
Pegasus announced such a set roughly 10+ years ago, but it sadly never materialized.

Anyway, good news for the early WWII buffs here. :yeah:
