Dark Ages Tab

Just a quick note today to say that I have now completed the update of the Dark Ages lists on the 'Dark Ages' tab.

This incorporates new stuff that has been released, new manufacturers that have come to my attention, ranges under new ownership, and so on.

Update today...

A bit of a confusing one, today!

Rifraf Miniatures used to produce a couple of small ranges of Spanish Civil War figures and WW2 Greeks. However, their website has been down for quite some time.

A quick search around the web suggests that both ranges were purchased by Burns Miniatures, who don't appear to have a web presence either!

Enter Templar Wargames And Scenery . Among the many products they supply are 28mm figures for the Spanish Civil War and WW2 Greeks, listed as (Burns Miniatures). It would seem that these are the old Rifraf figures! As Templar say on their site that they produce all their items themselves, it implies that Templar now own Burns Miniatures.

Interestingly though, Templar also sell the 28mm Indian Mutiny range from Mutineer Miniatures. On the Mutineer Miniatures site there is a message that Templar will be stocking the Mutineer 28mm range, but the Mutineer 20mm range has been sold to Templar. This suggests that Mutineer still own the 28mm ranges, but are the figures actually produced on their behalf by Templar?

Anyway. If you are looking for Rifraf figures you know where to go....

Also added today...

Cibos Little Dudes is based in Switzerland, I believe.

They produce ranges for the Risorgimento, the Italian invasion of Abyssinia, and various modern African conflicts.

Added today...

Forlorn Hope Games has been added to the Manufacturers Directory.

Although principally a fantasy and sci-fi company (which is how I managed to miss them out!), they also make a small range of historical figures. These include Far Eastern subjects, French and Indian Wars, and modern Somali pirates!

Another addition today

Acheson Creations have also been added to the Directory today.

Although associated with making a large range of historical buildings and terrain features, they also appear to have a small range of figures. I can't find any mention on the website of their size or scale, but as their fantasy figures are 28mm I'm going to assume the historicals are as well!


Added to the Directory...

Watchful I Studio has been added to the Directory. Based in the USA, they produce an interesting, small but growing range of figures for the Far East.

Another addition

Another addition to the Directory today is Stoessis Heroes .

Based in Germany, they make a small range of WW2 character figures. Some are based on real people, some are fictional.

Oshiro Added

Oshiro Model Terrain have been added to the Directory.

They have been around for a while now, making some stunning buildings and terrain for the Far East. They have now branched out into making figures. Their first offerings are for the Boxer Rebellion, starting with Japanese troops.

The Boxer Rebellion certainly seems to be the latest 'hot' thing at the moment: this is the second new range for this period that I have listed in the last few days!

Anyway, here is a sample pic from the website...
