Joan baetz  ecc :'( :'( :'( :'( ...better jump to 18 century guerre en dentelle wargame section of the forum and listen Vivaldi’s music to recover the aesthetics sense of my delicate deep blue eyes and my sensible ears

Nah. Vivaldi’s far too repetitive for my tastes.

Does  anyone know the release date?
The Perry's FB page says "later in January",but I was wondering if anyone has a more specific date.

Cheers
Andy

Maybe I m, as always , against the tide..but from my feeling I m almost sure they ll sell a number close to nothing for those first sets of the range..and that s will be a good new for me as, as a consequence, they ll stop the project and come back again to fill the gaps of their other interesting ranges ...practically all their production except Carlist War..I read that they even failed to sell many of the beautiful boxes of Plastic Dervishes..which i m sorry about that cause they were , for me, a greatly appreciated surprise ..but that s the market..on the other hand they continued to issue Napoleonics minis ..which is, for me, also extremely boring, possibly not to study as period , but  to paint and game..but the market asked for that
So you want a range to fail purely for your own selfish reasons? Charming...

Well I've waited about 50 years for this range. My interest was piqued from the short article in Tradition magazine. I just couldn't bring myself to do it in 15mm back in the day. I have followed the other attempts to do this range in 28mm, but they have either died on the vine or been slow to produce. I hope they do some Paraguayans wearing the chiripa. I have the uniform information. I just have to wait for the figures.

Exactly my position, I am really looking forward to this range using Neil Thomas’ Nineteenth Century rules

I will certainly be happy to se photos of games, or to play in one if anyone else has painted them up!

You mean something like this ?

Leaving aside the near total absence of date palms in Mato Grosso do Sul and eastern Paraguay, they do indeed look superb.  :-*
