Plastic Soldier Company 15mm Plastic Ancients

Post by FanatiChris » Thu Dec 12, 2019 8:51 pm

Plastic Soldier Company has announced a range of 15mm plastic ancients to support the Mortem Et Gloriam rules, starting with army boxes for Late Imperial Romans, Goths, Huns and Sassanids.

There is a teaser shot of Gothic horse on TMP: http://theminiaturespage.com/news/?id=49825425

They are taking preorders on the army boxes, but I'm not sure how figure packaging will be handled once the full range is released. Pre-orders and more info at: https://meg.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders/212575

I gather the Goths, Huns, and Sassanids are plastic remakes of the Lurkio metal ranges.

More news from PSC. They have apparently licensed and will be reintroducing the much loved Corvus Belli ranges of 15mm ancients in both plastic and eventually metal according to their posting at TMP.

If that includes the HYW English range, that's wonderful news!

They're running an informal poll on their Facebook about what they should bring to market first, and HYW English and EIR seem to be getting the most votes (to my mild disappointment as I want the Celts).

I hope they do the Corvus Belli Minis in Tin/Pweter and not in this softish plastic. I did saw an unpack video on yt and this was a disapointing one. The videomaker liked the miniatures but they had obvious a lot of flash and the spears were bend. Removing soft plasticflash is not easyly done and the bended spears, well no idea how to fix that?

I'm still waiting for a couple of boxes I ordered. Hopefully, much like other plastics, the boiling water treatment would get the weapons to straighten out. I will report in when I get them.
