There is an ad in the current WSS magazine for the plastic Perry US infantry, priced £20.00 GBP for the box. Not showing on the website yet, but I am hoping this means they are out soon. £20.00 GBP for a box of 36 figures is very good value.

Whoo, looking forward to those!

Hello both, actually the box will the contain 42 figures, enough to represent a full strength platoon of three squads plus HQ. There are also two additional Browning .30 cals for extra support, should you need them. As well as all the Garands and BARs you need there are a variety of optional weapons like M1 Carbines, Thompsons, Springfields with grenade launcher and Springfield with scope, Grease guns, and the M1A1 Bazooka. All wear the 2nd pattern 'Parsons' jacket, although disliked by the GI, were worn from Operation Torch, Tunisia, Sicily, the landings in Italy and Normandy through to the end of the war by some units.
There are quite a few first shots of the figures on our Facebook page. They'll be out on the 6th April at Salute and then on general release straight after.

Ace, the brothers!

Looking forward to the set.

42 figures! Even better value. I have seen the pictures and the figures look lovely.

Anyone know how they'll compare to other 28mm minis for heft?

Also, have they released other WWII ranges already?

I didn't know they make WWII figs.

It is good to see that they are modelled with hands and one arm already attached to most weapons. Makes for much better poses.

Perry match Foundry, Offensive Miniatures and Empress well. Less chunky than Warlord, Crusader, Artizan, BTD and Heer 46.
They have plastic 8th Army and Afrika Korps boxes and metal figures for Afrika Korps, including FJ, Italians and 8th Army, plus guns and vehicles.

The Perrys until know concentrate on North Africa, with two plastic boxes and, of course, plenty of splendid metals and a cooperation with a company producing vehicles and guns.

Oh, 28s. Too bad.

No just right. The Perry's don't demean themselves with lesser scales! :-)

Thank you for the replies and info.

Regarding the scale issues, Perrys WWII range tends to be 1/56 – this may not be stated very explicitely on the website, but it is clearly mentioned in some of the vehicle descriptions.

So are everyone else's apart from 1st Corps whose vehicles are 1/48. Although the figures certainly look chunky compared to the Warlord vehicles. The Perry crew figures fit 1/56 vehicles much better than the Warlord ones do.
