Others have complained that the French have been ignored, but this is a small release in a new period. There is no point from a business perspective in producing a vast range of figures from Czech Legion to the Russian Woman's Death Battalion if it isn't going to sell. Needless to say that if this is successful, French will probably be released, and if they are released they will definitely be purchased by at least one gamer (that is me).
The starter companies of 1500 points look very tasty at US$100 each (the NZ peso being exceptionally strong at the moment), and I've convinced my wife that they would make an ideal birthday present this August. These can be expanded with a range of blisters that are being released alongside the company boxes. They are also making a range of scenery including a trench system for US$70. All of this is rather affordable.
Since selling my 28mm WWI figures I have toyed with the idea of 15mm, but not seen it through. That will now be changing! I can't wait!
