COMING in 2016

It has been a while since this page was updated and though the miniatures are still being maufactured, distributed and sold by Warlord Games, we thought that it would be a good idea to inform customers of what to expect in terms of new releases for the coming year. 

The objective for 2016 is to complete the Cutting Edge Miniatures, Late Bronze Age range of figures before beginning the Iron Age period next year.

Work has already begun on the Sea People Infantry which will include both separate armoured and unarmoured types with javelins and swords. The first of these will be available early in the new year, along with the first of the Achaeans (late Minoan or Early Mycenanean phalanx spearmen and unarmoured militia Later Achaean spearmen).

These will closely follow with the Trojan War or late Achaean period infantry to complement the Sea Peoples and which can all be used for these early Kingdoms of the Aegean region of the late Bronze Age. Achaean support troops will then follow including Archers, Slingers and Javelinmen as well as foot command packs. The remainder of the early Egyptian, Libyan and Nubian forces will also be completed at this time and perhaps half way through the year.

By the end of 2016 it then hoped that the Achaean Chariots and possibly a Libyan Chariot will be completed along with Achaean and Bronze Age Light Horse scouts. 

It is hoped that photos of the work in progress of the figures will be posted here or on the Cutting Edge Miniatures Facebook page as and when they become available. 

Site updated 5th October 2013

We are pleased to announce that Warlord Games will now be the exclusive distributor and manufacturer for Cutting Edge Miniatures worldwide.

Some of you may have noticed a new category appeared recently in the menu on the left hand side. This is a list of "All Products".

By way of explanation, this list includes all the products which are currently available. It does, however, only replicate all the products which are already listed in the various detailled army categories. It does not contain any additional information and nor does it include any forthcoming products, which are still listed in the various appropriate detailled army categories.

The aim of the "All Products" category is for customers to find, in one list, all the products that are currently available across all the army list categories. This is perhaps a quicker search method than browsing the various army categories, looking for a particular product.

"Multipack Deals" also have a separate category listed on the left hand side.

Products can also be ordered directly from these lists.   

----------------------------------------------------------------     

Latest BattleLine deal is 6 Early 2-Horse Chariots for the price of £45.00. This is ideal for a Battlegroup or Unit of 6 or 4 and 2 Commanders.

The Late Bronze Age is also next to be released, starting with either the Chariots and Infantry for Mitanni, Syro-Cannanites, Middle Kingdom Assyrians and Kassite Babylonians, or Hittites or New Kingdom Egyptian Chariots. Watch this space.

The figures are designed with the most popular wargames rules and army lists in mind, and in particular those of Field of Glory (FOG); Warhammer Ancient Battles (WAB), Clash of Empires, Impetus and any of the Wargames Research Group sets of rules and lists, such as DBA, DBM and DBMM. Of course, they are suitable for use with any other of the excellent sets of wargames rules and lists available.

The initial range of figures will cover the Early and Middle Bronze Age of the Ancient Near East and then expand into the Late Bronze Age and Iron Age. The figures can be used to build armies in the Chariot Wars supplement for WAB, in the Swifter Than Eagles and Lost Scrolls supplements for FOG, and in Book 1 for DBM and DBMM.

Please read the section on Design Notes for more information on the initial range of figures. There is also a size comparison photograph of Cutting Edge Miniatures against some other ranges of figures in this section. 

Look out for the Galleries of photographs of painted figures within the army product categories and also check out the Books section for recommended reading including wargame rules and lists. 

Please note, all Foot figure packs have 8 figures, comprising 2 each of 4 different types or poses, unless otherwise specified. All figures are supplied un-painted. 

ALL PRODUCTS MARKED AS "OUT OF STOCK" ARE SUBJECT UPTO 28 DAYS DELIVERY.
