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....

Just a quick post to say that after a long time inactive, I am returning to the blog!

The first task is to trawl through the Manufacturers Directory and update the details. I've made a start and hope to finish....eventually...

More to follow!
