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.

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...

News roundup...

A quick 'news roundup' post today to catch up on a couple of developments over the last week or two.

So first off, Black Hat Miniatures have announced that they are selling their 25/28mm ranges to a slightly enigmatic 'other company'. They promise more details to follow on who this new owner is!

Crann Tara Miniatures have revealed a rather spiffing redesigned website. So much easier to spend your money with them now!

And Great Escape Games have released the first figures in their new WW2 Hungarian range. These should complement their recent Romanian range rather nicely...

Avanpost added to Directory

Avanpost has been added to the Manufacturers Directory.

From Russia, which seems to be a hotbed of new 28mm figure companies at the moment, Avanpost make ranges for the Thirty Years War and the Napoleonic Wars. Both metal and resin figures are available, and look pretty stunning in the photos!
