From the announcement:
We are thrilled to be able to announce we will be working closely with scale model giants Italeri.
Having grown up with Italeri’s fantastically detailed kits it is with great pride that Warlord Games will be working with the talented team at Italeri to bring many more plastic vehicles and terrain pieces to the wargaming world and further enhance our Bolt Action range.
“We’ve spent many hours over the years building the marvellous kits from Italeri so we’re delighted to now be working with them to bring more plastic vehicles to gamers and collectors around the world” say Warlord Games founders, John Stallard and Paul Sawyer.
Giuliano Malservisi and Gian Piero Parmeggiani, the founders of Italeri say “Italeri is very proud to announce an agreement with Warlord Games, a wargames company that produces an amazing range of historical miniatures, and the right partner to develop a new line of plastic in 1/56 scale”.
The first two 1:56 scale vehicles to be made available in plastic between the two companies will be the classic M4 Sherman medium tank and the deadly Panther Ausf. A, with many more already in the pipeline.
