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. 

OTG01 Gunners...

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...

Serious question to Blog followers... read on!


I frequently get asked for some quite specialized figure origination. Most of the requests are serious and worthy of consideration but what is often not at the front of the questioner's mind is the cost to the manufacturer ie, me!



You might want a particular unit or figure for your collection. You may want only 15 or 20 models which in sales terms is perhaps £25-£30. The margin on this is of course...

It's St Patrick's Day so...


We can't let today pass without featuring some Irish action from the Nine Years War on the blog. So I thought the best way to pay tribute to the theatre and the fighting men which has given me the most stimulation to understand the period in the last thirty years was to simply create a photo montage of action and inspiration in Ireland from the League of Augsburg..



Happy St Patrick's day to...

Ottoman armoured sipahis - due for release late Spring.


Clib has done and absolutely outstanding job on these armoured sipahis which could be used from the mid 16th to early 18th century with a bit of a stretch either side. The variety is superb and uses the same design principles that have been adopted for much of the cavalry for the last couple of years - split waist style for missle weapon armed men. 



I am honestly unsure whether we have completed 15...

I received my author's copies by the Saturday lunchtime post and am very happy to report that the product is very much up to expectation. The finishing is very nice. layout easy on the eye and the...

Normal service is being resumed at Warfare Miniatures


I am glad to say that although it has actually taken a year, normal service is being resumed in terms of figure availability.


For those who have been missing codes from the range for a while - a look today will evidence that the bulk of the cavalry has now reappeared.


I also hope to make the Cossacks available within the next 7-10 days too. 

More of an explanation of how things will change going...

GNW Swedes from.. Russia! The work of Alexey Kovshikov



Thanks Alexey for sending these fine images of GNW Swedes. I am happy to say I now have several customers in Russia and GNW is proving of course, pretty popular. 




I am even more curious abut the other period which seems to be popular with my Russian customers.... King William's War in Ireland!




A mixture of Warfare and I think, Ebor? miniatures.

Dhow about this? 28mm scale.


Undoubtedly, left field but, when I saw it, several little projects aligned - Tangier, Omani and Indian pirates, 4Play scenarios, Donnybrook and the new naval rules I am devoting a lot of creative time to.


Crew are Warfare Miniatures - Ottoman Irregulars OT11/OT12 packs + new officers

I have warmed up hugely to laser cut models. With a little care they can be lifted from the prosaic to characterful...

Is Donnybrook disappearing? A celebration!

 


Donnybrook (I heard the term on the radio yesterday with a Canadian politician using it in the perfect context as he described a 'right Donnybrook' between the EU and UK over trade talks), is disappearing. 


Kurpfalz Feldherren's Lesnaya 1708 Donnybrook game at Hamburg.

Our original print run is almost sold out. Clarence has a few copies in the US and I have a handful here in the UK. After that, it...

The book is entitled A Taste of Victoryand offers eighteen scenarios set between 1676 and 1693. The table set ups are all...
