I love a cricket analogy, and with the release of four new figures in the British category the range of individual figures has hit 50, and I’m pleased to say (and excuse another cricket pun) it’s ’50 not out!’.
The four figures can be split into two parts;
A holy intervention
These releases focus on the interaction between a wounded British infantryman and an Army Chaplain.
- TW32047 – Private, 8th Bn Lincolnshire Regiment 1918
- TW32048 – Chaplain, attached, 8th Bn Lincolnshire Reg 1918
Both are sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi, with box art box Alex Varela. Both figures are sculpted in 1/32 scale.
The figures are shown in the usual kit and equipment for the 1917-18 period and although listed as 8th Lincolnshire Regiment would actually be perfectly acceptable to list as any English, Welsh, Irish, Australian, New Zealand, South African or Lowland Scottish Regiment serving on the Western Front in the last two years of the war.

As the title suggest figures 49 and 50 focus on the newly formed Tank Corps, with two figures in typical kit for the 1917-18 period on the Western Front;
- TW32049 – Private, 8th Bn Tank Corps, Amiens 1918
- TW32050 – Corporal, 8th Bn Tank Corps, Amiens 1918
Once again the figures are sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi, this time the box art is by Alex Long. The figures are sculpted in 1/32 scale.
