Posted by marc zijp on 05 Apr 2018, 08:30

All at Hannants:
Chinese light cavalry 16-17th century
Chinese medium cavalry
Chines light cavalry
Korean heavy cavalry set 1
Korean heavy cavalry set 2
Korean guerrilla’s cavalry
Burgundian crossbowmen 15th century

I fancy the last Burgundian sets.

Yep! :-)
And hopefully in the RedBox format like the Italian or Spanish infantry sets: 12 troopers and 4 staff.
The Strelets crossbowmen set was not a real succes, so hopefully a nice set this time!

and hopefully with Pavise.....


.....although, thinking about it.. :eh: that would mean space taken up on the sprue and maybe less actual crossbowmen :shock: and Pavise are easy enough to make.

ooh..and depending on the poses..I´ve just had an idea !!!!! :-D

Thanks for sharing this good news! :yeah:

Some very interisting & exceptional subjects again. I sincerely hope the intriguing RedBox range is profitable & successful. Truly, they‘re constantly breaking new ground in 1/72 plastic. :thumbup:

Has somebody heard about the estimated release dates already?

Would be great if it would be possible to have a glimpse at some preview images!? ;-)
Any online at vk already?

On the Strelets forum HARON said in his typical short and clear words: ‘In may’.
The RedBox pre 1812 Russian infantry sets are sceduled for end this year. That’s what he mentioned on vk site. I don’t speak russian; read that here at Bennos.

Announced sets are on vk-site.
Burgundian crossbowmen got 8 poses from which 4 handgunners.
3 of 4 pavises are on standards.
It’s not the final set of crossbowmen which will make all others unnecessary, so the speak. Bit of dissapointment, although usable.

I said the same they pretended to make handgonners or much more "primitive arquebusiers" from the 15th CENTURY while they look like 17th century musketeers,even you can put on them a 18th tricorn hat and convert them easily into minutemen or redcoats lol

TBH, they (the arquebusiers) don´t look too bad.

As for the Crossbowmen..also not bad but unfortunately my plans for them (other than just painting them) have been scuppered. :(
Hopefully Frank will make a set of crossbowmen to add to his series.

I like them as well, but I still did not understand why they call their set "crossbowmen". ;-)
