This was reported on the Treefrog forum, Worlds Apart is doing a series of 60mm swoppet type figures based on the Horrible Histories a great children book series. The first sets are Romans and Egyptians which will be figures individual packed and playsets. They will also be doing a series of historical figures individual packed. The poster Plastic warrior Show noted that they are showing test shots of 1870s British Infantry on their web site.
Another person has put up this link where you can see the figures.
