Yep, I admit it, things have been pretty hectic over the last six to seven weeks. It may appear that we have not been doing anything here at Warfare Miniatures but a more accurate description of affairs is that we have not had time to tell anyone about all the things we have been doing!
Since my Dr Livingstone-Mr Stanley moment with Clibinarium in Enniskillen about a month ago (well exactly a month ago), we've traded at Salute, I have been abroad a bit and we've got lots of new things designed.
In fact, the Marching GNW Russians - pikemen, musketeers and command are all available but not yet in the shop. If anyone is desperate for them just mail me and we can sort it out by paypal. It will be a week or so before pictures appear.
Just to remind you what they look like here they are:

Also available but not yet in the shop are standing pikemen in kartuz and grenadiers in fur caps. All in all we now have 16 Russian infantry packs compared with 22 Swedish so, parity almost but not yet achieved.

In addition, Clib had designed 15 Russian GNW artillerists which are currently being master moulded. I hope to have these out before too long. Here are some photos:

We are also discussing a quick diversion into Prussian and Danish GNW infantry for a quick release.
Do not despair, the cavalry are again at the top of the sculpting pile and our little travails of
December/January are well behind us.

We are also revisiting the 1690s - more news on that soon.
As for big sellers at SALUTE - French Mounted Dragoons and GNW Russians. We were pleased with the trade footfall and had a good show.
