All the figures are quite beaitiful. The civilians look quite Minoan to me, from the archseological records, but what Makes these superb warriors Minoans instead of Achaeans/Mycenic? That is what their equipment mostly look like.

I agree completely with carlosfaro: these figures are fantastic. I love these Minoans, both the civilians and the warriors. Hopefully they will be released before the end of the year. :winky:

Comment from LinearA on Strelets forum:

Hi guys,
I would like to briefly answer the 2 questions.
to the Minoan.
there will be a second set, with a bull.
to the mini sets, up to now we have not yet decided 100% whether we want each mini set with max. Will produce 4 figures in 4 different poses.
the basic idea behind the mini sets is that these figures should serve as a supplement to existing sets. and the mini sets are supposed to be sold for little money.
The first 3 mini sets will be released in July.
#001s Vigiles Urbani "Cohortes Vigilum" SET 1
#002s Sacrifice before the battle
#003s Legionary Recruits Training
greeting

This specific set hasn't been released so far. But it should be available at Linear-A webshop, I guess. ;-)

Really nice figure sculpts, but why on earth are all the horsies gallopers? Hannibal didn’t use bionic horses for a horse trial race across the Alps as far as I presume
Simple horses in walking poses would be sooo useful

Hi guys,
I would like to say a few words about our last set # 013 Hannibals Cavalry.
Regarding galloping horses, in our company we were divided into two camps. One faction wanted exactly what you described, the other faction a functioning Carthaginian cavalry (until now there was no manufacturer).
So we opted for the galloping horse, it was clear to us that Hannibal's longest train across the Alps would come to an end at some point.
When he descends into the valley and meets the Romans at the Battle of Trebia at the latest.
It is December (Winder) and the soldiers wrapped up in their thick coats fit in very well.

But of course you are right, it is a matter of opinion - but considering the last Carthaginians from Zvezda from 2006 there were only Infantry. And Hät Carthaginians were even from 2001 with a few horses and few poses.
In principle, Carthaginian cavalry has never existed in plastic.
I just want to reveal so much, if Corona does not make a second run, we will produce Cavalry for the Varus and Cunaxa series, then possibly with horses walking at walking pace. horses are then led by the reins.
Then at the latest you can change your horses.
In addition, we could also produce something in the mini series .................... so don't worry, something is going on with us.
Cheers

Thank you, Linear-A, for your reply. Of course, it is a matter of opinion and the absolute and ideal set will never exist.
You have prepared many good and courageous surprises
Please keep going. many people here support you. I do
