They had their own stand to display stuff. They invited WarHQ to join them to sell the kits on their stand.

Rubicon Models will be at Salute (Apr 22) at ExCeL London.

WarHQ is kind enough to share part of their booth (TL11) with us.
We will be showcasing the latest prototypes and our most recent
releases. Come and say hello!

I do not think they were listed (somewhere I have the show guide, but it is not that important), hopefully this time I will look for them on the correct stand^__^. For some reason I thought they were on the PSC stand.

Maybe it was a WarHQ stand and they joined them then :p

We can't tell you right now... not because it is a secret, but the Chinese New Year holiday always give us surprises!  We might be able to give you some more info after the holidays, which is the last week of February.  :-\

They didn't say in which year  ::)

We are not going to release any vehicles this Q1/18, but focus solely on figures - pewter and plastic miniatures!

Okey.
Will you keep update Production Schedule by moving from items from Mould Making onto Quality Control?

It looks like it is still in quality control http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=211.0

The first quarter is always a bit of a nightmare with Chinese New Year looming large (it is very important and occupies quite a period of time - not just the day itself).

Just updated our Release Schedule with the latest info...  No plastic vehicles, but THREE new product ranges!
Not all things to everyone's liking, but this is a new step forward to expand our product lines!

Link is here: http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=211.msg1858#msg1858

Enjoy!
;)

It sometimes seems that 3 waves a year would be better than 4 because of the new year.

That said, with the web stores being set up and different ranges, maybe we’ll be getting new stuff more often than quarterly anyway

I guess there's going to be mixed feedback about this diversification.  I don't really care for the larger metal figures, or the resin vehicles, but I think the latter will be popular with a lot of people.  I think the concern is that this diversification may dilute the output of what most people regard as Rubicon's core product, which is plastic vehicles. Skipping a quarter tends to reinforce that concern for some of us.

I have to agree with Pinky ,  your going to turn off some people . I notice on your schedule some of the figure kits I was excited about and was hoping to get a few sets of , are coming out in pewter . Where as a plastic figure of  a guy tying his boot for example  can be easily changed  , pewter , not so much . Oh well , just have to get one set and hopefully wait for other seated plastics by you or someone else .  I can see releases personalities in resin / pewter ( Patton / Rommel ) but I would have thought  the regular rank and file troops , which we usually want various sets  of , would be best in plastic . I hope it all works out for you guys

Shame there are no plastic vehicles but it is an impressive array of stuff! I can understand the drive to diversify what Rubicon offer.

Hopefully the metal infantry releases will be followed up with more plastic. Don't know if I missed discussion on this in the WIP threads, but it surprises me that Zhukov/Rommel/etc are going to be plastic and yet something like the Soviet tank riders are metal...? (I can understand some of the other vehicle crews etc being metal but for wargaming purposes metal tank riders are not good - IMO)

It’s probably a decision that was made whether to add the kits to the plastic queue (and wait longer for it) or release them in pewter/resin and increase their portfolio.

Resin, pewter or plastic. It doesn’t bother me, as long as the quality is good.
