New Vikings

Acheson Creations have released a new range of Vikings.

As well as the usual spearmen and so on, interestingly they also have figures for traders and boatbuilders. As my old grandad used to say, variety is the spice of life, so this range looks like a welcome addition to the many Viking figures already available!

1866 Miniatures

1866 Miniatures have been added to the Manufacturers Directory.

They produce a growing range of figures for the Austro-Prussian War of 1866. Bit of a clue in the name...

Anyway. They don't seem to have a website yet, and distribution is being handled by Company D in Britain and Badger Games in the US.

Napoleonic Badeners

Murawski Miniatures have launched some new Napoleonic figures. They are for the rather unrepresented Grand Duchy of Baden and considerably increase the options for anyone wishing to field this army!

Quick update...

Just to note a quick update today. Crusader Miniatures have released some WW2 Eastern Front partisans. I have modified the WW2 page listings to reflect this.

Some of the figures look like they could be put to a whole load of uses!

Today's update...

When your website is your shop window it is important to make it easy to see what you sell and for customers to easily navigate their way around. Sounds obvious doesn't it? So why do so many companies get seduced by confusing flashy layout and graphics?

Today's example is Gripping Beast . Sorry guys, I love your products but the website layout is a pain to navigate!

Hidden away under the 'other' menu is a range that I didn't know existed! And I've done the research. Look around this blog!

So I've now added the MoFo Modern Forces range. This consists of figures for the Falklands War, as well as some more generic Mercenaries, African Militia, and some 1990s US Rangers and Delta Force.

Spectre Miniatures

Spectre Miniatures have been added to the Directory today.

Yet another outfit based in Nottingham, they produce a range of 21st Century troops, special forces, insurgents, and the like. They also have a range of vehicles which are scaled to 1/50, and a set of rules.

Warhansa Miniatures

Warhansa Miniatures have been added to the Directory.

In 28mm they do modern 'adventure' type figures, gladiators, and a nice looking Dark Ages range.

Leonid Miniatures

Leonid is another enigma. There is a small range of medieval and WW1 figures on the Siberia Miniatures website listed as Leonid. This appears to be the only place they can be sourced.

Is Leonid a person, maybe a mate of Siberia? Or a small startup outsourcing their distribution? Who knows! Anyway, have a picture...
