New Set Announcement: British Infantry (1916-1918)

New Set Announcement: British Infantry (1916-1918)

We can present the first batch of sculpts for the next set in our Great War range: British Infantry (1916-1918)! 

(open image in a new tab for a close up)

This is where we are in the sculpting process. We have some more arms and another body pose to do.

These could also be useful for the pre-war period, the interwar period (VBCW anyone?), and with a bit of squinting even into WW2! (Although probably better left to our World Ablaze range!)

Let us know what you think of them below and we will continue to move them along! Which WW1 set should we tackle next? Post your thoughts and maybe we can have a poll on it.

They look great! Definitely getting them when they’re released.

Looking forward to US Infantry next.

Looking forward immensely to these figs perfect for VBCW.

With the British in progress the Americans should be next (Your existing French sprue + an AEF sprue would be perfect for making Harlem Hellfighters!). After the Brits and Yanks are done, I’d do an HMG/support sprue for each nation, with some specialist weapons on it:

British Support – Vickers & crew, trench catapult, rifle grenades & scopes
French Support – Hotchkiss & crew, 37mm M1916, rifle grenades & scopes
American Support – Browning & crew, shotgun, rifle grenades & scopes
German Support – Maxim MG 08 & crew, flame thrower, rifle grenades & scopes

From there, I’d move to a new theater, probably go hang with Lawerence/Arabs in the desert, add a cavalry sprue for all nations, and of course build out the Ottomans.

Definitely heavy weapons for the 3 sets already released, and please please please include rifle grenade launcher arms in them to retrofit some guys!!! They were a huge part of the war! Then maybe some sort of field gun set that includes the weird little guns too. I would guess that the most economical way to do that would be a box with 3 gun and crew sprues, one of each belligerent. Inefficient to buy but if it gets them released it’s a trade I’m willing to bear and odds are you’re collecting 2 forces. Then the same treatment for Russians and Austro Hungarians, then either tanks or cavalry!

ANZAC heads in this set would be excellent, looking forward to the releases.

Is there any possibility that Wolseley Pith Helmets couch be included for use in 3rd Afghan War or other mid-war Colonial theaters…

Cavalry sets for all armies as well as heavy weapons (machine gun, mortar, artillery cannon) would be great

I love it! I’ve been wanting WW1 miniatures in plastic and now we have three of the most important armies! I’m very excited. Great job.

Terrific to see the WW1 range expand! Agree with the comment to add some helmets by themselves, also some helmets with burlap covers for mid to late war. Maybe a head with gas mask and no helmet. Maybe add a fig in leather jerkin or goat skin for cold weather. Also, the 08 gear seems pulled back a little far under the arms and away from the front buckle. It was typically worn more pulled in towards the buckle. Would love to see some WW1 winter uniformed troops. Very few of those available by any companies. Terrific work, I’m sold,
