Another interesting batch of new models has arrived from WB, across a number of periods. Elite Force gets WB24007 US Army Ranger 2002 and WB24009 US Navy Seal 2010 – it is great to see some modern figures among the new releases.

The War Along The Nile range has a number of new additions. The British York and Lancaster Regiment get the most, with:

  • WB27034 Kneeling Firing
  • WB27035 Standing Loading
  • WB27036 Charging No 1
  • WB27037 Charging No 2
  • WB27040 Officer
  • WB27041 Drummer

The Mahdists have only WB27039 Fuzzy Wuzzy Charging With Sword No 2 to take the Brits on!

The American Civil War range has a splendid addition to the gradually growing limited edition ‘The Chosen Ground’ diorama, with WB31074 Command Set six-piece set. This whole ensemble will really make a fantastic centrepiece to an ACW collection.

For the Museum Collection comes just one new figure, WB10030 Highlander 78th Regiment Of Foot 1869.

Finally, for the ever-popular Zulu War there is WB20086 British Royal Artillery 7 Pound Gun And Crew. It is another wonderful limited edition artillery set, and bound to be highly sought-after.
