Partizan pre orders



Warfare Miniatures will not be trading at Partizan on August 18th 2019 but I will have a League of Augusburg game on at the show. Not surprisingly, Great Northern War themed.

Book review - From Solebay to the Texel



My thirst for knowledge about naval warfare in the period 1650 - 1720 has led to the acquisition of lots of collateral on the subject. I recently received a copy of the Helion Century of the Soldier book focusing on the Third Anglo Dutch War 1672-1674. This is closest to my core period of interest of the three 17th century Anglo Dutch Wars and features many of the main actors including William of...

New Danish grenadiers and painted firing line



These fine chaps have been available for almost a year but I never got round to putting them in the shop! My fault completely. I had it in my mind to paint them first but that deadline slipped away again and again.

Anyway, we have sold a few dozen packs on request over the time period but I apologize for keeping them from you for so long.

The Danes retained grenadier companies of significant size...

New Ottoman special packs



Here are some pictures of future releases for our Ottoman Turkish range.


The first piece is a lovely vignette of a Janissary Cauldron party. For those unfamiliar with this tradition the 'cooking pot' was more precious to Janissary units than any flag. Many of their senior officers had titles relating to posts from the kitchen such as the Soup Maker, the Scullion, the Chef and the Baker. The hearth...

Here they are! Ottoman Cavalry preview



This was a big job and involved the sculpting of brand new horses in addition to creating all of the various combinations of weapons used by Ottoman cavalry in the 17th and 18th centuries. Clib has done outstanding work on these and set an amazing benchmark for any future cavalry we release.




We have a Command set - two officers and a standard bearer. One officer has a helmet with turban wrapped...

Ray's Request - Donnybrook Ottomans and Donnybrook force offer


Janissary Vets face European cavalry


An Ottoman Wagonburg bristling with menace - Come and get us!


Ray Roussell blames me for his Donnybrook addiction. I know the term lead pusher could have a totally different meaning in the context of selling minis as opposed to playing with them. I am however probably answerable to both descriptions.

Partizan May 2019 - Warfare pre order and Wagonburg game

The Wagonburg in 'draft' still has a fair amount of work to be done but the idea is obvious.


I am very much looking forward to Partizan on May 19th. The game will be a first outing for my scratch built Wagonburg for the Ottomans. I am still in the process of building bits and pieces of the defence works and equipment.


All of the items are scratch built to some degree.


The biggest question I have is...

I painted them thar Ottermans

Code OT07 Tufeckci firing

I know, several months late. C minus on report card and detention for me. Nevertheless, painting these thirty models in five days was not as onerous a chore as it may at first sound.

They were really fun to do. The sculpting is wonderful and the poses interesting and natural.
