Guest Post: Alexey Kovshikov - GNW Swedish artillery





Some excellent photos of Swedish artillery from the collection of Russian enthusuast Alexey Kovshikov.



Alexey wanted me to point out that this outstanding work was done by painter Mikhail Mirosnik.





It shows both Warfare Miniatures and Ebob Miniatures sculpts together.





These blend very well and Mikhail has done an outstanding job in making each piece work.




Thanks for sharing Alexey.

Taking Baby out for its first stroll





Partizan was the debut of With Talon and Claw and I am pleased to say it was a sunny day for the new born. Several customers took delivery of their pre ordered books and a brisk trade was had by North Star who were selling the book on the day.




The launch weekend has been a success and we've shifted enough copies already to ensure the book will have a healthy life.



The game I chose as the launch pad...

Huzzah for Lithuania!



All the way from Vilnius, bang on time (I always like to under promise and over deliver) and in very good nick.....

With Talon and Claw has arrived in Scotland!

This means..

Pre orders will go out tomorrow and Saturday which is six days ahead of schedule and..

If you are going to Partizan you can pay in advance and pick up your copy on the day without a postage charge if you haven't pre-ordered...

Marlborough's Danes




Yes, I know. How could Warfare have produced such an important component of the armies of the period without me getting my act together and at least letting everyone see what they look like in battalions?
An unforgivable omission but as always I will trot out my 'one man team' excuse. Well, that and Ottomans, Wagonburgs, wee ships, Cossacks and the like.




Anyway at last I have some units of Danes to...

Nice day



In truth, I wasn't really looking forward to Claymore this year. Not because I don't like the show, I have been a loyal participant for more than 25 years but circumstances were conspiring against me somewhat. Too much day job work, too much travel, getting the new book out, other projects - a 0600 start, knowing I was again flying solo at the show... bed was the most attractive prospect on...

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.

As the show coincides with the weekend I am expecting delivery of With Talon and Claw I do hope to hand over some pre ordered books that day.





Any figure/flag/book/counters order pre paid and for collection on the day will...

Pre ordering with Talon and Claw

With Talon and Claw is scheduled for shipment of pre-orders on August 22nd 2019 with general release on September 2nd.

From Russia with Liv.. Guard

I am delighted to share the work of Yuriy Hotchkin with Blog followers. Yuriy and his wargaming group are located across both Sankt Peterburg and Moscow and have interest in a variety of periods and scales. 




Yuriy sent me some wonderful pictures of his Great Northern War Swedes from Warfare Miniatures.
These are some of the finest painted examples of our miniatures that I have yet seen.





The fact that...

New in the shop from Warfare Miniatures

Some new stuff which can be found in the shop:




A Cossack unit equivalent to an infantry battalion. It contains three packs of Cossacks advancing (COS01) with musket and one Command pack (COS02).  Price is £31 ex postage. The flag is not included nor or are the bases.The unit pictured has 18 models but there are 20 models in the battalion pack.






Second up, I have a limited number of the excellent...

Various WiP shots

two bases from a three base Cossack infantry unit

I have too many projects going at the same time. Purely a function of bringing out new figures for Warfare Miniatures. Painting samples for the website means that lots of things get started but very often wait for a long time to get finished.


Command and three models to be added to this Russian unit in kartuz

Every base on this post is part of a unit...

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...

International GNW painting!



One great thing about the internet is is brings people who would never even know the existence of each other, together. Over the last couple of weeks I have received some wonderful examples of painting from enthusiasts and friends of the blog...




Firstly some GNW Russians from Italy. Dino Todaro whose work was so admired the last time we had it on the blog has sent these pictures of Great Northern...
