New Range: Warring States!

New Range: Warring States!

In partnership with sculptor Michael Sng we are going to bring Ancient China to your battlefield in 28mm hard plastic! 

Work is well-progressed on the first Armoured Infantry set and Michael has produced a video to explain the thinking behind the range and what to expect. It's also a great primer on the period! 

 

We are collecting the final sculpts now and will move to engineering and layout soon. Here are some of the parts that may be included in the set (part count not yet final):

When these are ready I’m going to need 300 infantry and at least 18 chariots.
You can’t have just one warring states army.

I can’t believe you’re doing Warring States miniatures!… I’ve been scouring the net looking for anything ancient Chinese, but to get the actual Warring States period itself, just amazing.

I have dedicated the last several years of my life to studying the wisdom of the Hundred Schools of Thought and attaining the Dao. To be able to combine this with my miniature wargaming hobby is just incredible.

I cannot wait until these come out. When will they be available?? Thank you!

These look great but I agree regarding moulded flags. Much better to have a nice clean standard pole that we can add flags to using materials and methods of our choice. Either purchased, printed, or painted. I usually just paint on to paper then use watered-down white glue to give some shape. In truth probably not a big deal as easy to cut off and replace with a wire standard as long as the moulded flag isn’t attached to other parts of the miniature. So maybe just avoid that if possible? Anyway overall a minor point. Love your expanding range of minis and especially looking forward to the goths and Egyptians👍

That’s what I need, awesome.

Michael – thank you for a great video – I’m looking forward to buying some boxes.

Please could you release some painting guide information when the box is released? I have found it hard to get believable information, probably because it was all about 2500 years ago… The background you provided in the video was REALLY good, both images and dialog. This is from someone who doesn’t usually watch videos and prefers written information

Looking at the parts image, I would suggest no flags, leaving room for more heads and so on on the sprue. I prefer printed flags – my freehand skills are limited and printing a separate flag is easier than adding a decal to a plastic flag. I would suggest some different helmet styles in addition to the existing, including officers maybe

Thanks

John

Looks great!

A heads-up for anyone eagerly awaiting some spoilers for upcoming sets: Wargames Atlantic does mention this Warring States Infantry set, along with a handful of new sets mentioned there that I haven’t seen announced or revealed anywhere else on this site or in the email newsletter – including Franks, Bavarians, a new Roman set, an Old Guard Army set, two Egyptian sets, and two Indian Mutiny sets… and that’s on top of no less than TEN “secret” sets that are mentioned which have not been spoiled anywhere except the “guess what this is” pictures from the email newsletter!

Seriously: check out that Release Schedule – looks like Wargames Atlantic has been very busy lately! :)

Lovely miniatures!

Hopefully Ming and Song chinese will follow when this range is completed.

Looking forward to getting my hands on these. I have some metals for this period, but plastics would be so much better.

Russell Briant - October 2, 2021

Quite a buzz around our Wargaming club today from this announcement. Well done.

Looking with high interest. Have long wanted to build a Chinese army from this period.

Axel - October 1, 2021

My favourite for Chinese would be a Ming set (or a couple, as it covers a LOT of army over two centures, with almost no love in metal and none in plastic yet), but this looks very promising, too. I surely will make me a couple of units.

Please keep it close to history, and do not push THIS set into fantasy or folklore. It also does not need rules – at most, explanations on how to use the army in existing rulesets.
