Recently we received many questions regarding our future plans. Below you can find rough plan of ‘what and when’ for next few months. We do not give exact dates, we will work as fast as possible.

1. Small rulebook – we’ve currently released English Beta version and we’re waiting for your comments. We want to include any interesting ideas into the Polish version as well. Price of this rulebook shouldn’t exceed …

2. Once we publish printed version of Small Rulebook, we will post online rules for all of our Skirmish box sets. Idea here is very simple – to lower the cost of the entry point for new Players. All you need to start then will be Skirmish box set, as both its stats and game rules will be available for free online.

3. Next step will be army books for each six factions from main rulebook. Each will receive its own book (but Cossacks and Tartars will probably be presented in one), again to make the entry point lower price-wise.

4. Then we would like to publish proper starter set: Poles vs. Turks. You will have their everything you need for your game: miniatures, terrains in 2D, cardboard tokens (orders, wounds), dice, measure tape.

5. New miniatures. By the end of this year, we will release: winged hussars without lances, Imperial cuirassiers with arquebus, armoured Imperial cuirassiers with arquebus (currently only available in Piccolomini regimental box), Tartar kapikullu, Transylvanian Saxon/Town infantry, Transylvanian Court infantry, Foot Szekely, Azabs with bows, Sipahi of the Guard. There will be also some new minis for existing sets, i.e. Cossack Commanders. We also have ideas for new formations, even armies (but that’s rather distinct future).

Below you can see Transylvanian household infantry sculpted by Kamil Milaniuk.

6. Battle Group/Taks Force Force level. Here idea is as follows: by the end of the summer Beta version will be available online. It will contain one scenario and one Force for each army, then we will ask you to test and comment. Printed full version is expected no earlier than at Christmas, most likely though it will be January-February 2018.

Sounds good, even though there are no goodies announced for my Muscovites.

Can I take this opportunity to draw your attention to the horse models? Some of the sculpts of various types of horses have become quite dated (ie, no longer matching with the quality of the newer human figures) and the moulds are clearly starting to give way (ie, mistakes, missing limbs or misaligned castings).

A new starter set might be a good opportunity to update the horses as well. Not just for its own sake, but because I've specifically heard new players complain about the quality of the castings of the horses and that they had to put in too much work to make them presentable.

Lastly, what will be the next campaign or army book? I'm still hoping for the Russo-Polish war!
