Long awaited view of one of the scorpios. Looks real nice. Hope they have a crew.

I know nothing about this period and whether they are accurate or not, but they do look great.

From VK:

"2. From the conversations at the Linear-A forum, the company further plans emerge: the theme of the oldest Middle East (Accadians, Elamites, Hittites), Ancient Rome (Romans army to the First Punical War, Romans and Carthaginians who die in the battle of the sea. In contrast to all these antiquities, the German army of the Great War period is declared."

Can someone who is on their forum confirm the last part about the WW1 Germans? Apparently I am a caveman and don't find how to register...

I can confirm! And they plan to do a lot of "special topics" what ever that means... 8)

I like this man. Even though he looks injured or dead, I think he could easily be converted into a live one in many different and varied positions, as long as the sculpting detail is just as good on the back as it's on the front. :thumbup:

Linear- A post their masters on the forum now, but I think I'm bad at navigating their website so it's tricky for me to find.

I like everything I see, I'm definitely picking up the Athenians, but I do think they're not dated correctly, aren't they more suited to the time of the Three Hundred? I thought hoplite armour had lessened and lightened by the time of Cunaxa.

Looking forward to seeing their new Indus society masters so I can continue my own Mauryan Empire army.

The rumors about Hittites are exciting! Those two sets by Caesar Miniatures are lovely but not covering the whole army well. Also extremely difficult to find these days :(

Those Varus Disaster Romans would be great also as casualty markers for wargamers! I wish there were such set for napoleonics and other eras as well.

OH MY GOD !!! It's gonna be one of the best set ever on romans ! I'm amazed by the quality and the historical accuracy... The only problem i see : the shields are almost unusable with this kind of bar in the middle, which I don't know what it represents... I would have preferred that they engraved the patterns, perfectly documented historically! :(
