The latest Linear-A set is availale now.
Obviously, a supplementation to their earlier "Varian Disaster" set (and all suitable figures fitting the depicted period, of course) .

40 figures in 16 poses and 4 dogs.
The specific figures may not be to everyones taste, but Linera-A maintain a steady level of sculpting & overall quality and offer exceptional & stimulating subjects off the beaten tracks.

As Jan already announced, next in queue is their Amazons set:

Not bad but a little flat looking. And they mostly suffer from the "Wave your weapons in the air Syndrome" that afflicts many miniatures.

It’s a fun set, not a needed set. At least not for me, but that would not withhold me to buy one.
Another syndrome in this hobby so often seen: ‘I got a big shield but that’s not to protect me but for show so I raise it and wave with it and act as if it’s light as a feather’.
:-D

I guess we shouldn't complain, Marc. As we all know, there's remedies. The number of times I've used hot water to permanently bend a shield towards covering a body ......I'm spasmodically working on the HaT Unmarried Zulus (not my favourite set) & they nearly all need "the Water Method".

I wonder if HaT would pay my hot water bill?

PSR provides images of the figures in its preview section since a few days.

Some prominent mold lines here and there but nice figures nonetheless.
