2014 Start

The Alamo seems to be the darling of 2014.  Both TSSD and Paragon have announced sets for OTSN 2014.  TSSD will release Cavalry while Paragon will do Defenders.   K & C is also releasing an Alamo set or two.  Only Paragon has released photos.  Many feel the poses are from their others sets (who really cares?) and do not care for the head gear.  We agree ion this point.   Our question involved the fact this is another small set.  Their smallest yet with just 4 figures and a few extra heads.  No cost is listed but we have a feeling they will not be cheap.  Small sets to us mean a limited run which means a higher price.   Then why these smaller sets?  Do manufacturers envision smaller sales ?  Lots of question in our minds which we will address later.  And by the way as these (both) sets are in the newer scale they will find no place in the ranks of my Alamo defenders.

Both are to be commended for continuing to produce their fine lines of figures

I'm curious, what scale are these new figures?

They are the so-called "new" Large 54mm. Both Paragon and TSSD Alamo figures were scaled to match Conte Alamo defenders.
