I've had a soft spot for this period for many years, since I was laid up ill for a week and read Michael Barthorp's book "To face the Daring Maori". I completely forgot to feel sick while I was reading!

Here is a range of figures worthy of the unusual (in many ways unique) conflict. Thank you.

Cracking looking figures!!  Love  Love

Looking forward to the releases for the AZW!

NWF in the 1890's will do for me, I'll definitely be buying this range, cant wait for Christmas now!!

The new large colonial range sounds very exciting! Very little if any khaki was worn, I cant help thinking it maybe the Indian Mutiny, but thats a wild guess.

As for the range in China, I'd love it to be The Second Opium War, but if I were a betting man I'd go with The Boxer Rebellion, no doubt I'll be buying this range too.....I need to get a better paid job to cope with all the spending!!

that's a win win for me..

I hadn't intended on doing Maori Wars but its only a stones throw over the puddle from here and it's a country I have an affinity for...so go on then.

I really like how Empress and Mr Hicks are focusing on colonial periods and not darting around too much making martian zombies and the like...they just keep getting better and better and the detailed research is coming through in the figures.

Looking forward to doing Chitral and Black Mountain campaigns as well next year! Well done.

Don't recall that funnily enough....
Am not tempted I'm afraid, but look forward to the Zulu War releases in due course and may add a few of them to the project. As to NWF, well, its a good way away yet, so we'll see.

I doubt Empress will do the Indian Mutiny, Mutineer Miniatures a already doing a great job on that range which will be hard to match.

About the Mauri Wars, that is nothing for me at the moment, the models look great though.

I will be looking forward to the new AZW models too.

Cool figures

Those Maori war Brits can also be used for a variety of conflicts ranging from the First Carlist war to the first Anglo-Sikh war, all the more so as I imagine the figures are compatible with the Perry scuplts.

Excellent figures as usual from Mr. Hicks. 

More importantly to me (it will be awhile before I get around to re-strarting my long-ago interrupted Moari Wars project) is this statement:

"This range is a customer commission and so it did not feel right to say to much until the customer was just about to receive some toys which is now the case."

Seriously, I can commission my own range?  This interets me greatly.  I didn't find any details about this on the Empress' website, though.  Perhaps someone could elaborate on this

OMG!!!!  Shocked

I've been planning on putting together a Maori Wars demo game for what seems like years now but alas, until recently I couldn't find any mini's that were worth the effort to paint up to a high standard.

This will certainly no longer be a problem! Watch out for a full on Brit attempt to take a Maori fortification at a wargames show near you in the not so distant future!!

Woohoo!  Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool

Looks great, though not a period I intend to game.  I'll be waiting for the NWF and 17th Lancers.
