Gripping Beast update...

Gripping Beast has a shiny new redesigned website! Hooray!

I've taken the opportunity to have a trawl round their ranges for new stuff that I didn't have listed, and have added a couple of listings to my Ancients and Medieval pages.

They are still open (for the moment) and have some good UK and International postage deals going!

From New Zealand...

Battleline Miniatures has been added to the Directory.

From New Zealand, these guys are mostly a 15mm company but also have a couple of 28mm ranges listed as Mongols and Samurai.

I don't know much more about them, but everyone could do with more Mongols and Samurai so go on over for a shufti...

Ambitious plans...

Wargames Atlantic have been added to the Manufacturers Directory.

This is a company with some very ambitious-sounding plans! Already making fantasy figures, they are now branching out into historicals with the launch of a set of Persian Infantry.

It would appear that all their figures are multi-part plastic sets. The Persian set will build 40 figures for the very reasonable price of £25. Although based in the USA, they have local stockists in several parts of the world. In the UK you can buy from North Star so shipping is a lot cheaper!

Four historical ranges are currently being planned. 'First Empires' is billed as being from Akkadia to Alexander, 'Blood Oaths' is the Dark Ages, 'Imperial Conquests' 19th Century colonial, and 'The Great War' is....well, take a guess!

So, a very professional looking outfit to keep an eye on, I reckon!

New Thirty Years War Range

1898 Miniatures have released the first of a new range of figures for the Thirty Years War.

Initial releases are some excellent-looking Spanish Tercios figures. The website features photos of these guys with great paint jobs so you should definitely pop over and have a look!

New American Civil War Range

AW Miniatures have recently launched a new range of American Civil War figures.

For a new range it looks to be surprisingly comprehensive, with fifty-odd different packs available covering both armies. So go and 'av a shufti...

Shako64 has been added to the Directory.

It appears to be a small operation based in Italy, producing a nice little range of figures for the Risorgimento.

The website (blog?) has some good photos of the figures painted up, so go and 'av a shufti...

Three Armies Update

I've updated the Directory and the Napoleonics page to reflect the changed situation at Three Armies.

Briefly, the Three Armies website has closed and the range is now available from Emperor Toads Emporium .

It would also appear that Emperor Toads is expanding its Napoleonic ranges, particularly the Revolutionary Wars stuff. They have some very useful, rarely modelled figures such as Vendeans and Piedmontese, for example.

So get on over and have a shufti...

Qart Hadasht Miniaturas...

Qart Hadasht Miniaturas are based in Spain and produce 28mm ranges of Spanish Napoleonic and Spanish AWI figures. I don't know much else about them beyond that, but they do have lots of nice photos of their figures on their website. So go over and have a shufti!

Stonewall Figures

Stonewall Figures has been added to the directory.

Among a variety of other stuff, they now own the ex-Warmodelling/Capitan Games ranges. In 28mm that includes Napoleonic Spanish and various sailors! There will shortly be added an American Civil War range as well.

May '40 Miniatures

May '40 Miniatures have been added to the Directory.

Based in the Netherlands I believe, they make a very useful range of WW2 Dutch troops.
