I've come late to the party it seems!?

The available figures on the Warlord Games website are few and far between. There are some figures that I can find on the secondary market not shown on the WG website -- like a mounted British Colonel. Also, I just picked up the 2nd Edition of the Black Powder rules, and the short chapter describing a Crimean War battle between a British contingent and a Russian has been completely removed from the new edition in favor of a second piece describing an ACW battle.

Indeed, it seems that almost all reference to the Crimea has been removed in the 2nd Edition of the rules? There only seems to remain four images. There is a reproduction of an original photo on page 2. There is also a small shot of a British "small" cavalry (Hussars) unit on page 16, and a larger one of what could be French Infantry on page 26 (though I am uncertain about that one). The only other image I could find (on page 104) is a reproduction of the box art from the British line infantry set that is still available on the WG website.

So, is (or HAS) WG decided to divest itself of the Crimean War figures, and I "missed the memo?"

Good afternoon.

Thank you for your interest in our Black Powder game and range of models!

I can confirm that we have no intention to drop our Crimea range but, like with many other theatres, periods and games, our release plans and our new products release efforts must be shared with the very many other ranges we offer and that are part of our games.

In reality, our Crimea range has received more attention and more investments in the past few years than many other ranges, within and without the Black Powder period, as we have released one unit in hard plastic for it (Russians) and added a few more kits to go along them (Russian guns); these have been added to the existing range of British infantry and cavalry.

While I do not know more than this, I can confirm that we will have more models coming out to beef up our Crimean range, but not in the next few months.

I hope this helps!
