I was told by Nic a couple of years ago the British range was just about done and when I queried him last week he said he would start the moulds. I take this to being that the masters are done and he just needs to get in production mode. We can expect some Brits in the next couple of months apparently.
Sounds as if it's a similar situation to when the French were supposed to be coming out. I happened to be in Sydney on holiday at the time they were due to be released and I went along to the MOAB show, expecting to be able to buy directly and take back to the UK. Saw Nic, who explained that they had to do some remastering and release was delayed. They were worth waiting for though. I gave up waiting for the British and went with Old Glory infantry which really do paint up very well and are a good match with Eureka size wise. I shall certainly be buying Eureka British cavalry, the Prussians and Austrian cavalry are superb and I imagine the new ones will be as well.
