The highlight of the weekend's emails was from GHQ and told of their new release plans for the coming year. I have edited the list to just the 1/285th scale (6mm) items which I present below for your interest and edification.
My GHQ stuff these days all comes from the ever obliging John Skotulanski at Wargames Emporium. http://www.wargamesemporium.co.uk/ Going by this list I reckon he stands to take an extra £100 or so from me in the next 12 months...
Where appropriate I have commented on the new models.
