I've managed to get to a fifth in the series of Warfare painted miniatures from the brushes of excellent painters whilst maintaining the quality!
Here we have some super, stylish Saxons from the very prolific brush of Roger Castle. Roger can be found evangelising about the GNW on several fora at the moment. His work output is high and he has done a wonderful job on his Warfare minis.
A quick update shot of some Ottoman Janissaries in campaign dress - having photographed these for the website I'll be busting them off these little bases and getting them mounted up properly for CRISIS. Anyway, you'll get the idea.
We should have some solid news on the production volumes of these and the other codes from the first six sets very soon.
We hope also to be able to preview the Segban and...
|various pikemen - Sedgemoor? Derry? Boston?|
It took a while but I finally got the lot painted and Toggy did some too! This post is just to illustrate the potential of these beautiful models.
|Armed wth scythes, polearms and short pikes - Raparees? Huguenots? Town mob?|
I really enjoyed painting them - so easy.
|The musketmen - each has 4 arm variants so multiply the horde by four and there is still no...|
I quickly threw together some old bits and pieces from the various collections to test out the mat. I am very pleased with the way it has come out. I think it is fine here in our little Lace Wars corner to have a little heavy metal on show (I do still have a fair bit of it!).
So, the shots...

Having slept on my idea (well not literally but I am sure the mat would have been soft and sort of comforting), Bank holiday Monday dawned with me getting my 'road building' materials together, to wit; a coarse hair brush, PVA glue, some fine sand and water.
|Showing the roads painted...|
|12 x 6 custom built and scaled central section of Waterloo I made a few years back|
After so many years of doing it, we are getting tired of lugging around car fulls of terrain boards. Storage and transport thereof is a pain. I have admired the teddy-bear massacres of the last few years and recall being impressed by the Waterloo terrain of the Loughton? Strike Force at Salute a few years back and...
|Managed to complete one full code - Campaign dress Janissaries loading/priming|
OK - the big job - prepping 90 models for the production moulds has been done this week, Scraping and filing castings which are not going to be painted is a very tedious job so I punctuated that by quickly painting a few more of the new castings.
|One more figure to add to the Campaign dress firing code|
These are speed...
|When I faltered, members of the gaming public were there to remind me of what I'd written in the rules - nice!|
We do other stuff... a lot of people know that (in my best Maurice Micklewhite parody).
|Toggy's nice pontoon bridge is underneath the French transport!|
Toggy keeps a painter chained to a radiator somewhere in order to achieve the volumes of Austrians he has amassed over the passed three or...
|Warfare Miniatures' top selling code WLOA01 - Musketeers in firing line|
As the hot summer continues, I am comforted by finally being in the UK for two consecutive weeks having worked as hard as I can remember in the last few years. Cloning technology would have been very welcome in the Hilton house in 2018.
|This unit of Irish Foot Guards of James II features WLOA01|
This has been a very successful...
|SC01 New troopers supplied with a random selection from 5 arm variants|
Several customers and Blog followers have inquired whether the new Swedish cavalry models are compatible with the very popular trooper we have been selling for the last 30 months.
Best way to start this piece is to show a comparison between them. In the above photo the two troopers on the left are from the original sculpt/model....
The possibilities with these figures are enormous. With fifteen marching /advancing musketeers in three sets of five, each with four arm variants we offer 60 variants on the musketeers.
With the open handed models depending on the weapons used - scythes, short pikes, pole-arms, long pikes etc the options are there for a further 60 variants.
These are the first of a series of 'real' people in 'real'...
