I've tried building an army with planned releases before. It's never had a happy ending. Not saying I won't join in, but someone else takes point.

I have ancient armies by this company and also just started their new WWII in the Pacific range also by the same company. They are a harder plastic figure with great poses, no flash, and easy to paint up. They also have a Napoleonic range from which you can draw the British for The War of 1812.

Robert, I understand your concern. Based on their past history and their regular release of new miniatures, I would expect this range to come to fruition.

Anglo-Canadian Army

This is something of a misnomer. The 'title' should be the British army as Canada was still a colony of Great Britain.

Thanks for sharing that.

I've seen the Militia and I think the figures are quite nice. I was hoping they would expand this range a little more rapidly than they are doing, but that's just a personal whim.

I have resisted adding 54mm Napoleonics to my existing 1/32 World War Two, Russian Civil War, French Foreign Legion, and Ottoman-Turkish holdings ……. until now.

With these new and upcoming Expeditionary Force releases, I may have met my Waterloo.

Brechtel, the manufacturer is in Singapore, so that may account for the wording.

Probably. The figures are nice, though.
