Again some more titles. And all attractive ones too.
I wish them good progress and succes with all their goals (and this list isn’t even their only ambitious project).
And of course good sales too!

Set 019 battle of cunaxa has been specified and, if I remember well, it has changed: hoplites marching.
I really thought it was announced as Persian cavalry?
Anyway: a set of marching hoplites has never been done before and are much welcome!
(as long as they are marching fully armed for the battlefield)

They all look to be epic poses,and well fit enough for a colossal diorama. BB

As always, in these cases, the wait to know news and see progress in the sets, I find it endless.
I just want too, Linear-a to be able to fulfill what was promised

All very nice sets and some intriguing future plans.

But I have to question just how vigilant those Urban Cohorts are. They're certainly keeping a close watch on something but is it the thing they're supposed to be watching? Fun idea and nicely done. :yeah:

Then I think the scantily dressed young woman will be safe from muggers and arsonists while these guys are on watch. :mrgreen:

Just box art and the content.

PSR mentions some new announcements by LinearA, but I think everything has been said here. Except for one:
Neanderthal vs Denisova vs Homo Sapiens #037
I know there’s a set of cro magnon figures by a fine but rather small company (forgot the name), but that aside: this probably will be a set dedicated to the oldest theme ever in our hobby?

TBH, I´m tempted to get back into ancients. The range of ideas, subjects and quality is quite amazing.
Long may it continue :yeah:

These figures look great. I just hope the casting quality will not ruin them...
