And " Neanderthal vs Denisova vs Homo Sapiens #037" is something im realy looking forward to :yeah:


I am curious how they will model such figures.

Will the Neanderthals mirror a more modern interpretation or will they be some fantastical cave-man type?

And as for Denisovians....well, there's this:

To extrapolate an entire group from the speculative appearance of an individual is dangerous.

Before I go too far with this, I do, of course, realise we are talking about "toy soldiers" and not museum quality constructs. But as said, I am curious.

I like those kind of sets so much. Actually: everything what LinearA has produced so far plus their future sets. They really dare to stick their heads out with these new themes and that can’t be applauded enough.

Same goes for Strelets of course.

That's strange to see running horses with this subject ( compare to the foot-figures of the set which are not in a hurry ... :shock: )

It seems that in our times, Hannibal couldn't cross the Alps for invading Italy ! :mrgreen:
Except if he choose to be recalled "Coronannibal" ! :P

The horses are really dynamic but the riders are great. And I am really looking forward to get these new Hannibal Sets.

Nice and promising. I like the leaning in the action poses. Only zvezda had a a few real convincing poses like that. The others, hat & Caesar, were mostly a bit stiff.
Although they have their good points I must say.
But this is gonna be a rough set!

Agreed, with big shields I prefer that too, especially in case where more types of shields were used. But at least they are all in front of the body for cover. Except one, who has just lost the fight so it seems.

Do we know for sure that these shields do not come as seperate pieces?
