Warfare Miniatures will soon be releasing an extensive range of 1/1200 metal warships covering the period 500 BC till the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century AD. This is a further consolidation of our naval offer. The ships are designed by the same talented artist who created the Anglo-Dutch Wars ships range.
Stuff happens. I normally ride to SALUTE on someone else's wagon and up until very recently that arrangement was good to go. Unfortunately, my partner's organization is now unable to trade at SALUTE.
This means my logistics have collapsed and other arrangements made it impossible to re-cut the plan and get all the trade commodities, racking, stock etc to London.
The good news is I personally WILL...
I will miss my annual pilgrimage to Antwerp this year. The show and trip has been the highlight of my wargaming calendar for nine years. Politics conspired to make it impossible for a small wargames business to negotiate the labyrinth of VAT claims, customs inspections, paperwork, inventories and other joyless bureaucracy that keeps democracy barely alive.

I have enjoyed reading and exploring the exploits of a quite remarkable figure form the 17th century. Not the fairly well trodden but brief path of his adventures in the land campaigns of the War of Three Kingdoms between 1640-1647, but the far more sustained period of his contribution to history. His activities as a naval commander between...
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.

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...

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.

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...
The range has been launched for preorder and we are already having to cast more stock after 24 hours. Thank you for that everyone!
To accompany the launch I have prepared a video explaining the range in a coordinated way. Reading the previous blog post and watchgin the video should provide almost everything that you need to know about what we are relwasing now and a hint of what is to come and let...
