Re: WW1 want list limited to realistic WW1 choices
BTW, the Italians initially wore the "baretta" cap in combat in 1915 against the Austrians but were already switching to Adrian helmets later that year. By 1916, a licensed model was being produced in Italy, which was in place for the rest of the war and for later years. In contrast, their Austrian opponents didn't generally adopt helmets until 1917 (and even then mostly on the Italian Front and not on the Eastern Front).
Thanks for this, my question wasn´t rethorical I really did not knew that.
And yes I also can remember that (I think PDA, but I´m not sure about that) did post a Listing of planned HÄT WW1 sets that consisted of:
- Russian Cavalry
- Russian Cossacks
- Italian Heavy Wps.
- French (Late War) Heavy Wps.
And many other I didn´t remember. Perhaps PDA can post the List again to shorten the waiting time untill these sets are announced official and also I would appreciate very much if HÄT wouldn´t make such a game of secrets about nearly every set they produce.
Would be better for us all for planning and also would calm down the temptation to buy sets that are availlable (as the russians are) from other manufacturers.
HÄT gets the moral credit from me that I buy any set that is availlable from HÄT (for WW1 and Colonial era) instead of buying it from other manufacturers, even if, as for the russians, i don´t know if the miniatures are better from HÄT then from Strelets. In return it would be very good to know;
On the high level HÄT produces Miniatures a minimal level of planning is necessary. So I can´t understand why they don´t share this data with us here in the forum.
