I would love some wargames figures based on the Spanish, Chinese and Russian Civil Wars: perhaps with extra equipment to convert them for sci-fi wargaming too (converting my own Space Bolsheviks sounds like fun!). As had already been pointed out, it is fantastic that you are focusing on unusual and often-ignored areas of history.

That said, I am slightly concerned that there are a load of different projects that the company is engaging in, and I hope this new venture would not take the focus off the great work you are already doing!

Chinese Warlords, communists and nationalists is something that is really lacking given its significance and the variety of units, as well as being a force missing for the many WW2 games that seem to have every front under the sun but China in their ranges. Though if you are planning on doing vehicles in plastic at some point, Spanish civil war experimental tanks are the most beautiful things

“The Troubles,” between the United Kingdom and Irish Republican Army.

Partisans would be great to see due the potential versatility for conversions and such, and although I know it’s pre-1930, Balkan Wars models would be pretty cool to see as well.

PMCs with “civilian” clothing bodies or with body armour and modern weapon arms will be hugely versatile in the wargaming scene. One of the hardest things to find is bodies with simple modern clothing (and not uniforms), this will let it be usable in modern and scifi-settings as civilians, rebels, militia etc. Some clothing might even be usable for older stuff all the way back to WW2 as partisans/resistance.

Modern weapon arms will set the brand apart as the only plastic modern army set out there. I’ve only seen very limited alternatives such as project Z that’s been discontinued afaik.

I would love to see some Kurdish Peshmerga / YPG miniatures, especially female fighters.
Otherwise, Bush War would be interesting. Rhodesians and ZAPU/ZANU.

But if you want to play it save, I’ll buy 3+ boxes of plastic Soviet motorized rifles.

What is definitely missing is a set of armed civilians in plastic 28 mm for interwar, could be used for any conflict and would be easy to adapt modify. Give them a mix of Russian and French guns. Heads could be a range of berets, helmets and caps ?

I’d love some U.N forces for Korea, WW2 figures can be proxied, but some armies (Like the Americans) had made many changes in uniform in the five years since the last war. Some U.S/S. Korean forces with swap able heads in proper fatigues would be welcome to the expanding hobby. Also, although i may be alone here, no one has so far made 28mm modern JGSDF (Japanese Ground Self-Defense Force) troops, and with Japan’s recent military expansion in the past few years, having figures to wargame against the PLA or Russian Far East forces, would be nice.

I would love to see some less uniformed modern armies such as Venezuela’s army where they have a couple of generations of kit and it looks like it can be pretty well randomly distributed.
Or at the other end some troops that are the border of modern and sci-fi, basically very near future. More advanced body armor, lots of sensor tech, way too many tac rails on the weapons, that sort of thing.
I also have to say that your definition of modern seems a bit broad from where we are sitting in the current sci-fi modern world.

I’d like to see a range of female figures that fit existing ranges. Not female specific in terms of the WI or a specific female only group but female figures that can be put into currently male only groups.
