New 1/72 SCW Nationalist Cavalry

20GEF009 box
It's already available a new set of Spanish Civil War 20mm figures --this time the Nationalist Cavalry. What we've just released is the first one in a series of 2 sets --this one including 5 regular troopers along with their horses, while the second one will comprise the Cavalry command group. As you can see below, all figures show different, unique poses, as well as horses also do.
20GEF009 contents
You will note that horses haven't been cast each as a whole, but into three parts (left and right halves, and base), so that you can choose whether to build them using their matching halves (each one identified by a number in the inside), or to try combinations of your own instead. Thanks to this trick, it is always possible to join two troopers boxes and still give them a unique appearance, with no repeated horses.

As said above, this novelty is already available from Minairons website --and hopefully from our main distributors and retailers too!

1/72 Moroccan Regulars preview

I'm excited to show you the greens just sculpted by Xan of the next Spanish Civil War infantry set we're going to launch pretty soon, right behind our Nationalist Cavalry (which will be available in the next two weeks, by the way). Such new infantry set will be devoted to the native troops of the Spanish Protectorate in Morocco, commonly known as Moroccan Regulars.
20GEF019 one
The same way as already done with other infantries, this first set is to be composed by thirteen askaris or riflemen and two NCOs, and will be followed by a second one including officers, standard bearer and close support weapons.
20GEF019 two
This new set of figures will be delivered to foundry next week, just after having picked up the Nationalist cavalrymen I've told you about before --so a clear deadline can be set for these Regulars with little error chances, at about late March or first days of April (Admittedly a bit too tight a date for Salute 2015 --but we can't run faster!).

Some shots on CV-33 tankette

Here below you have some shots on the CV-33 Carro Veloce tankette we're currently designing:
If everything runs smoothly enough, ultimate model will be released at 1/100 and 1/72 scales (more or less altogether) after the Summer parenthesis.
