The "word" is Italians in Africa , as that's where they were more  active . I'm sure some figures would cross over to the mainland battles , just like the plastic  Jerry Para box has a mix of early and late unis . All just wild guesses at the moment , who knows what and when Warlord will release . It took them almost a year to get their Kelly's Heroes figures out from when we first saw the "greens ". I find it funny that Perry didn't release a plastic set though , but they do have metal Italians that look very nice , if you like metals . No idea on any points value for anything as I don't play , I just build models  :D

An M13/40 is 98 (inexperienced) 125 (regular) 152 (veteran).  The same as a Panzer III Ausf F (in 1st edition Armies of Germany).

Thanks.

Any idea of the British equivalent? I am on-site at the moment so no access to my copy of the British lists.

No - I don't seem to have the British Army book.  Nor do I have Duel in the Sun - I must get that one!

A Crusader I is 108/135/162.  I think that's the same as the M14/41.

Might be worth checking out the Toy fair reports.

This is good news, can take some pressure from us to do Italians.  They should be the expert, lol.

Doing some more google search... think those are 1/72 placed besides some existing 1/56 tanks.  The only new one is the IS2/JS2...

If people actually used their eyes rather than their desires they would notice that the Matilda and 88mm are part of the 1/72nd Arras set.

I'd venture that the whole row of Stug, Semovente, M13 and 88mm are in fact 1/72nd scale models, judging by the size and pose of the infantry figures.

There was a rumour from Warlord that an Italian vehicle was in the making.  Given that most of the Warlord/Italeri models announced for 2017 have already been released or about to be released we should expect to see something in the remaining 9-10 months of 2017 ...

 I'll certainly put my hand up to a bit of wishful thinking, the Matlidas were at the front of the case, level with the 1/56 M10, & looked a little large for 1/72.
However, they are, as said by Patrick R, part of their 1/72 range :'( (gropes around for excuse, finds none, bugger...)

I had my hopes up there for a bit, but realised that the StuGs on the right are too small to also be 1/56, which meant the Italian tanks aren't either and must be 1/72 (I bet they the old ESCI kits).  Then I saw they had the same Italian tanks on display last year.  Italeri are always doing things like this. 

However, I think the Matilda nearer the camera is a 1/56 scale model.  Perspective doesn't explain the size difference, and it seems to have Warlord 28mm figures beside it (the other figures are clearly 1/72).

Here's a clearer photo that seems to prove it:

Sorry to disappoint you all... All these are, in fact, part of the Italeri "Battle of Arras 1940" 1:72 scale Battle Set.
Here is the store link that listed all the components:
