CP Models buys Empress 20mm WWII ranges

Postby cp models » 31 Dec 2013

I am very pleased to announce that CP Models are now the owners of the excellent Empress 20mm World War II ranges. These figures will be integrated into our existing TQD Castings WWII ranges as they were sculpted by our regular TQD sculptor Tony Boustead and will be a perfect match for the existing figures. The first releases will be the German Winter Fallschirmjager and US Winter Infantry ideal for the battle of the bulge.

I am in the process of sorting out the moulds for release as soon as we re-open after the holidays but just thought I would let you guys know what was planned for January 2014

Thanks Matt

Richard, It includes the 1940 French motorised troops but this range will need new production moulds making before I can release them, so they will be unavailable for a short while but they are a priority to get back into prodution as soon as possible

Piers will get in touch as soon as they are available as I would love to see them in the Blitzkrieg book

Kieran no current plans to expand the US army range but it is something I would like to look at in the future, when recently discussing ideas for commission sculpts US army drivers/passengers was mentioned as a sort of generic vehicle crew. So they are the sort of sets which might get added in the future odds & ends to round out various ranges.

Were the US drivers/passengers your idea Joe ?

Will post here as soon as these figures are live on the site

Yes, Mark, I was thinking of US jeep crew in M43 uniforms. Driver, passenger and standing .30/.50 cal gunner.

I just ordered more regular GIs but I agree, it would be fantastic if there were .30 cal. MG Teams, 60mm Mortar Teams, Forward Observers, HQ Command Post, and maybe a Medic added to the line. It would be perfect then!

Oh, and the halftrack/truck passengers and Jeep crew would be really nice as well.

Not familiar with their offerings.

Any chance if a basic list of the range beyond Winter FJ and Americans?

From what I saw on your site, they will be a must if I ever get to the Bulge!

Good luck!
