Hi everyone,

Well we are pleased to announce on Lead Adventure a new range that will be released early April. This announcement only covers Colonial releases and not moderns or our impending 20mm WW2 range.

The Maori War 1845-6. 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.

The following pictures, only a very small sample of the range, as lovely as they are, do not do justice to the actual figures which are gorgeous. Well done Mr Hicks. Big kiss from the Empresses.




















The following months will see quite a big push on the AZW. Three packs of dismounted Boers as asked for LAF members. A Lord Chelmsford three figure command group is almost complete plus a RA Gatling gun. This will quickly be followed by a Naval Gatling. Sadly we had hoped to be also releasing a series of packs showing the 17th Lancers at full charge but we have got a bit behind. The specially commissioned horses are virtually complete but we have to do the riders and so this will now be available towards the end of April/ beginning of May. Followed by the Dragoon Guards.

As stated following on from these will be a flow of AZW releases, the intention being to get the period pretty much covered this year. Time will tell but we will get there in the end but we want to clear the decks.  

For the future Empress are also happy to announce that we are currently working on NWF. This will be the 1890s period covering Chitral. Sorry but its more Khaki but we do not actually do any Khaki Colonials so this is new to us. Should be available in time for Christmas 2011

Plus we have already begun planning a very large Colonial range for 2012, which has very little, if any khaki! Please do not pester for details on this as we are not about to tell anyone for at least a year, possibly longer. Oh and there is also another middle size range set in China but we have planned that for a couple of years, we even started making the toys but got pulled into another direction. Ah I must not forget to mention? What a tease we are.

So little time and sooooo much to do!!!!

Lovely, those will supplement my Opium wars British nicely. You never know, what with the RWC coming up I might even venture into the Maori Wars. Gorgeous figures BTW.

Now what's up with the moderns?

I'm struggling to get over the disappointment of remaining unable to play Howard's End but I think these might ease the pain.

Well worth the wait and agree the chap who originated the range should have the first news. Yet more superb sculpts from Mr Hicks, i joked about invisble men but its certain they too would be spot on if he did any!

Chitral should please a lot of folk on here as will the new AZW stuff. Plus we have the additional bonus of two more ranges to guess at! Im betting Boxer Rebellion for the China one but not got a clue for the other one.

Looks like a good year for Empress.

Can't wait for the Lancers and Dragoons.

Beautiful sculpts!  Maori Wars is one to tick off the list soon then.  Also good news on the Boers, and I look forward to the NWF range, which will fill a massive gap and of course the tribesmen can be used across pretty much the whole preiod if designed right.

Good news, good work.

Fantastic stuff! The usual stunning Hicks figures and a very interesting and under-represented period.

The only downside are those horrendously complicated Maori tattoos  Sad  Goodness knows how I'd ever paint those!

Is it being held of until Monday to be launched at the anniversary of some historical event?

The only thing I could come up with was either the Maori Wars or ...

High five!

Great work Empress and Mr. Hicks.

Come on, man. This is no time to wimp out. I've painted 'em on 15mm Maoris, those big lads should be child's play by comparison. Shouldn't they?   Wink

My only downside is that I've already gamed this war in 15mm, and don't feel like doing it again. But they sure are some lovely figures. Might get a couple of Maoris just to paint for fun, and I reckon I could find a use or two for those Brits.
