No plans to do any other armies at the moment as this will lose the concentration on the Brits and Germans.

Shame, i'd prefer some eastern front stuff, there is only so many variations you can do on the other stuff.

You can always use the Musketeer Russians for that. Or do You crave Austrians or Romanians?

I am not even certain to which theater the Serbian and Romanian campaign belong....?

What's wrong with the Gripping Beast French? They are really nice  :)

Exactly France and the main powers have been extensively covered, i'd love to see a great war Russian range with characters and characterful high command.

have they? well, I agree that perspectives can be very subjective  ;)

but what's wrong with desiring nicely sculpted french?
Woodbine are good stock, but GWM, Old Glory and Scarab are a bit olde style....

Agree with you.

The main battles was supported by the french after all.

Great war miniatures are very cool, but I love too the Paul Hicks work and I hope to see some early war frenchs and Belgians from his hands, and some other cool nations of course.

Didn't Mr. Hicks do the Belgians for Ebor?

Empress, a lovely business, run by lovely people with lovely toys.

Nice work all round.  That is all.

Those packs are excellent! The great number of poses may appeal to many kinds of gamers. Of course they will look good for WWI skirmish battles but they'll also be vile opponents in every time travel adventure or can guard the Kaisers colonies on Mars. :D I put those right on my want-list!
