Bandits High is now out. Miniature Market seems to be the first with them in stock, including singles. Hasbro/AH has posted two previews in their "articles" section on their website.

http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=ah/articles

Set is primarily based in the Pacific with island maps.

#001 A6M3 Zero Escort*
#002 A6M3 Zero Rookie
#003 B239 Brewster Ace
#004 Bf 109E Escort
#005 Buffalo Mk I Rookie
#006 D.520 Ace
#007 D.520 Interceptor
#008 F4U-1 USMC Corsair
#009 FM-1 Wildcat*
#010 Fulmar Mk II
#011 Fw 190A Afrika Korps Ace
#012 Fw 190D "Dora"
#013 Fw 190D Rookie
#014 IAR-80A
#015 IL-2 Sturmovik
#016 JU 87 Stuka
#017 Ki-43 "Oscar"*
#018 Ki-44 "Tojo"
#019 Ki-61 "Tony" Ace*
#020 La-5FN Ace
#021 MS.406 Veteran
#022 Navy F4U Corsair
#023 P-38J Lightning Ace*
#024 P-39 Lend-Lease
#025 P-39D Rookie*
#026 P-51D Mustang
#027 Re.2001 Falco II
#028 Re.2001 CB Fighter-Bomber
#029 Spitfire F.Mk IX Interceptor
#030 Spitfire F. Mk IX Raider
#031 Typhoon Mk 1B

* Planes in the new starter box.

From what I can see, here's the new sculpts for this set:

B239 Buffalo
D.520 Dewoitine
F4U Corsair
Fairey Fulmar
IAR 80
IL-2 Sturmovik
JU 87 Stuka
Ki-43/44
La-5
P-39 Airacobra
Re.2001 Falco II

These are the repeats in different versions:
A6M3 Zero
Bf 109
Fw 190
Ki-61
MS.406
P-51
Spitfire
Wildcat
Typhoon

Overall an excellent set of wings.

Anybody have these yet? They look inferior in quality from the pictures. Interested to see if they are as good as the last set. They look fat and bulbous-y.

Mine should arrive on Saturday. I'll do some comparisons and post photos of the new stuff and some side-by-side shots as well.

Also, looks like the P51 and the BF109 (at least) are different sculpts. P51 is a D model. Looks like there is a different sculpt for the FW190 too.

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

That may just be the photos and what look to be some pretty poor paint jobs.

Gosh, I hope I'm wrong and they look great IRL.

Bandits High is now out

My starter arrived earlier in the week.

The Wizards promo posts were somewhat misleading... whistle

Reflecting the Pacific theme, here's what's actually in the box:

#025 P-39D Rookie*

* Planes in the new starter box.

Overall an excellent set of wings.


Agreed, Walt, and thanks for the checklist.

By the way: there's no discernable difference to my eye between the quality of the BH and AT sets, if the starter models are representative.

That's great news - I was hoping it was just poor photography.

I just posted a bunch of photos on the Bandits High page. Rest assured that the quality and paint jobs of the scupts are equal to those in A20.
