Warfare Miniatures update



I am sitting on a pile of gold, well, what I mean is I am in possession of a large quantity of mastered greens/sculpts which as yet, I have not managed to get master or production moulded.






Covid is at the root of the backlog but the complete reorganization of production facilities at Warfare Miniatures and the introduction of Ark Royal Miniatures had contributed to the production line constipation....

Warfare Miniatures will be attending and trading at Salute on November 13th 2021. We will attempt to carry as much of our extensive range as possible but as that keeps expanding, it is becoming more difficult to do that.

Armour... Turkish style


I managed to complete three of the 15 sipahis which will be released in the Autumn. I really enjoyed these. Simple, easy to paint and very dramatic looking. I intend to share them all mounted singly first before I put them into units which will be at the core of the strike force for the Ottoman Army.



These fellas will be suitable across an extremely wide time span depending on what equipment I...

Ottoman Artillery - pre release - release!


Ottoman positional battery with 15 gunners

These were sculpted a long time back but Covid scuppered the release in various ways. I have not yet production moulded them but I have a limited number of master casts which I can make available to anyone who wants to get their hands on some now. There are three sets following our established pattern of Firing, Running back and Loading.

Ah! That's where you've been...


Inaugural casting accompanied by some Belgian beer

I have not been blogging for a while for a variety of business and personal reasons which are of no concern here on the blog but have consumed significant time and energy. Needless to say, not all of that was negative and one of the biggest draws on my limited time was transferring the location of Warfare Miniatures production and commercial...

Thanks, Duncan.



It was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Duncan Macfarlane. Having known and interacted with him for nearly thirty years, it was truly shocking to be told the news. Duncan was a gentleman, raconteur, sage on all things wargaming, better connected than numerous technology platforms and genuinely nice person to be around. His slightly absent minded, avuncular style created a sense...

Spring Offer - A Taste of Victory! 33% off




In the spirit of optimism which Spring always brings I thought I would do a little special offer on A Taste of Victory!




The recent negative adjustment in postal rates and introduction of various random taxes by European countries on British goods have in truth, dented international buisness. Shipping prices to the US in particular are prohibitive and farcical. 



Best way round that is to make things...
