Left Bank Workshops added to Manufacturers Directory

Left Bank Workshops has been added to the Manufacturers Directory.

Based in Australia, Left Bank are distributed by Siege Works Studios and currently make ranges for the War of the Austrian Succession and the Napoleonic Wars.

I believe they bought the old Jacdaw range of figures, so this is the place to go if you are looking for them!

Gringo 40s added to Directory

Another belated addition to the Manufacturers Directory today.

Gringo 40s make several ranges of figures, mostly focusing on North and South American subjects. They also have a range of Napoleonic figures that include less often seen things such as French Engineers of the Guard.

Well worth a look for beautifully sculpted figures of rarer subjects!

Bad Squiddo Games added to directory

Bad Squiddo Games have been added to the directory.

Bit of an oversight, this one. I thought I had already listed them!

For those that are unaware, Bad Squiddo is run by the estimable Dice Bag Lady and focuses on "believable female miniatures". As well as being a stockist for female figures made by all sorts of different manufacturers, they also produce their own ranges. At the moment the focus is on Viking shield maidens and WW2 Soviets.

There is loads of other stuff on the site, so it is well worth popping over for a nose round!

New Releases from Gorgon Studios

Gorgon Studios have announced the release of a pack of four Viking shieldmaidens. Unlike most figures of this sort, they are realistic looking, with believable anatomy and clothing!

New range from Empress Miniatures




Empress Miniatures are launching a new World War 2 range. They are kicking off with some Americans, and there are Germans on the way. Can't do WW2 without Germans, can you?

They already do some nice Italians in their 1930s range, and have plans to incorporate these with their new WW2 figures.

As usual with Empress, the figures do look stunning!

Another new company!

The Miniature Company has been added to the Manufacturers Directory.

A new maker, based in Essex, they have a small range of Ancients featuring Indians and Persians at the moment. According to the website, a Dark Ages range is also on the way!


Here is a nice picture of an elephant from their website...

Three Armies

A new manufacturer has been added to the Directory.

Three Armies makes a range of Napoleonic figures for the French, Prussian and Spanish armies. Hence the name!

I believe Austrians and British are in the pipeline, making five armies. There is a lesson here about future-proofing your name when you start!

Anyway, I met the owner at Salute and he seems like a good bloke. Very enthusiastic about the period. The figures look nice, and an initial look indicates that they will fit in well with the general Perry/Victrix size of figure. When I have reduced my lead-pile a bit an order for some Spanish will be going in!

Here is a sample photo of some late-war French....

More to follow!
