New Germans from Linear-A.
Permalink   


Plastic Soldier Review say that Linear-A have announced several new releases, including:

  • WWI German Landwehr at Tannenberg (Set 1)
  • WWI German Infantry at Verdun (Set 2)
  • WWI Saxon Rifles 1914-15 (Set 3)

This company's Ancients sets seem to get high marks for historical accuracy and sculpting, so these should be worth waiting for.

You beat me to posting these news.

Looking forward to these, will they be 4-figure minisets or larger?

What is particular with tge Saxon rifles - headgear, cuffs?

Regards, Pat

Shakos would also be my guess.

I apologize for having nothing to offer but a Wikipedia link at this moment.

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sch%C3%BCtzen-(F%C3%BCsilier-)Regiment_%E2%80%9EPrinz_Georg%E2%80%9C_(K%C3%B6niglich_S%C3%A4chsisches)_Nr._108

The Dinant massacre stains the reputation of that unit.

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sac_de_Dinant_(1914): "Les régiments no 108, no 182 de la 46e Brigade et les 12e et 48e régiments d'artillerie descendent par la rue Saint-Jacques. À h 30, son avant-garde atteint l'abattoir qui ne tarde pas à être la proie des flammes. Les Allemands, trouvant moins de civils dans les habitations, incendient tout le quartier. Les civils de sexe masculin qui avaient décidé de rester sont tous exécutés sans exception. Dans l'après-midi, un peloton du 108e RI54 trouve une centaine de civils réfugiés à la brasserie Nicaise. Les femmes et les enfants sont conduits à l'abbaye de Leffe ; les hommes, au nombre de 30, sont amenés rue des Tanneries, alignés le long du mur Laurent puis exécutés. Trois d'entre eux parviennent à s'enfuir à la faveur de l'obscurité tombante16,53,54."

Oh dear. I hope the set doesn't reflect the regiment's behaviour. One sprue of "Standing, firing," and one of civilians and a priest . . .
