"Looking very forward to this range, particularly interested in early war before every think got bogged down in France and Flanders, and some of the lesser known theatres :- Eastern front, Balkans, Mesopotamia and Tsing –Tau. Figures for this later could also possibly be used for the Russo-Japanese war of 1904-05.
I do hope the range is not going to be all centred on the western front, is there any schedule of releases to keep our interest and allow for planning of our units please?"
Thanks for any information anyone can give me.
Welcome to the forum. We will be focussing on the western front to start with - early war then late war before moving on to cover the eastern front and Italian theatre. That is the current plan. Once these areas are covered we will then be able to focus on other theatres of this epic conflict.
We are working on a schedule of releases which will give people an approximate guide to availability over the coming months. This is a very big project and will keep us busy for quite some time!
And besides from a wargame point of view the late western front is mostly boring.........
Personally I feel the best way (and obvious) for Kallistra to release this range is chronologically. But of course this does pose a problem with the shere volume to be covered, so they have to make choices which we as the buying public do not and hence some will have to wait before they can refight Tannenberg (second battle in 1914, not first in 1410?).
I think that the Western front will have an initial appeal commercially to wargamers, who then will be tempted by other theatres.
Great figures and I look forward to the next four years (and beyond) leaving me on Pot Noodles
Well tally ho! With a bing and a bong and a buzz buzz buzz!
I was wondering about the release of German jagers and dismounted cavalry of all nations, and are you going to bring out limbers for the artillery?
If it's going to be some time before the release of any limbers I was wondering if I could maybe use ACW 28 and have the guns changed for more limbers?
can't wait to put in an order for the new cavalry.....

The ACW limbers could be ok to use, but the horse and riders would need some remodelling.
