As noted by Benno's site, the British HQ is most probably the same as it was included in the Blitzkrieg big box. Boxart and figures match, so I would not doubt this assumption.

The next AoT set coming up.
6271 - WWII Soviet Assault Group (late war)
Apparently just 4 figures in 4 poses, but with a discernible piece of scenery.

Russian hobbyists report that the recently announced US figures will apparently mean an expansion of the AoT range to include the 1944 Normandy Landings (& subsequent battles of course).
Correction of my initial translation attempt of the sets in question:
6278 - US Infantry
6279 - US Marines


Still excellent news, then again this unfortunately means no Japanese troops from Zvezda for the time being. :( ;-)
Word is, that we can expect more relevant US sets within the next few years. :thumbup:

ernesto70 asked:

Tankers are available in resin from Germania Figuren. As walking Infantry.
Airplane pilots, Kamikaze there are three plastic sets from Red box. Hasegawa do two sets.
Infantry in plastic by Esci, Strelets, Red box, Airfix, Atlantic (with a tie ! I get informed by members of the forum ) ...
But all in clothes for the mainstream of the pacific war.

Maybe some Japanese in winter clothes for Manchuria (or Mongolian army). That is not available on the market as far as I know.

Something special at the Asia theater will be Thai army in WWII.

For Europe we get no Netherlands army.
Norwegian army is also not available.
Czech army is also only one set in resin available.
Greek soldier are not available too.

For your reindeer you could do some Finish soldier.
The sets of Finnish soldier from Strelets and Mars are ... a different quality.

Souds good.
Swedish pilots in her clothes is for sure a rare theme.

Your reindeers catch my interest.
So I have to wait. And get two hit in once.

I was just checking Hannants and they have Zvezda ZVE 6279 listed there US Marines, 1/72 Injction Moulded figures. From the price £3.83 (reduced from £4,25) I'm guessing this is a new item in the Art of Tactic range, has any got any images?

Thank you. I must have missed this originally. Doesn't seem like the year has started properly without a Spielwarrenmesse and all the releases and photos.

Wow it's great news that Zvezda are continuing their re-releases of big boxes! I've been looking for the Samurai HQ set for ages. The French foot artillery is welcome as well.


The prices on the Zvezda Old Guard sets are getting pretty crazy so hopefully we'll see them back in 2022.
