A summer of new releases

Over the next few months I have lined up a fair few releases/

First up is a real 'special' John Ray who's wonderful collection graces the A Military Gentleman Book, blog and Forum very kindly sculpted an early French Hussar for the range
The figure looks comfortable on both standing  and galloping horses and I'm sure this will be a must want figure.

Unfortunately Richard Ansell continues to be unavailable due to ongoing family issues, to that end I have sought the services of Andy Stadden son of Charles to help out.

The first set of releases he has done are primarily conversions but more pieces are coming.
So we have the French artillery crew and the British Horse

 I think you will agree he has done a good job.

Finally John Dougan continues his work on the War in Italy the Spanish Infantry marching is making his way to me, pack mules etc are already at Griffin and expect to see a mountain gun coming soon as well.

Just check the website for updates and availability

Crann Tara at Partizan

For a change rather than take the trade stand I chose to put on a demo game under the Crann Tara banner, in reality I've been doing demo games at Partizan since Newark Irregulars started holding wargame shows!!!

Anyway the day was filled with lots of jaw, jaw and not enough war war but you really need around 5 people to run a successful demo game and engage with the public at the same time, it most probably saved the French army from an embarrassing defeat. We were using Honours of War rules as they were the common denominator between us, however the French C in C threw three 1's in succession for his right flank commanders and ended up with 3 dithering commanders who for the first half the game only reluctantly crept forward at a very slow and uncoordinated pace.

So a big thankyou to all those who stopped for a chat, friends and strangers alike and for all the positive comments received  and to those people who still haven't seen or heard of the range of figures - its a hard life being a figure producer against the big boys :)

and now the pictures

Falkirk and Partizan

 I apologise for being behind on a few things but I think I'm starting to return to normality!

First I'm trading at Falkirk on the 13th May so there's a 10% discount coupon on all orders for collection at the show just spend £30 or more and enter Falkirk2017 when asked for coupon code.

I'm also at Partizan on the 21st May - I'm putting a demo game on with my figures but if you want any figures for collection then just enter Partizan17 at checkout and the order will be post free and I will bring it along to the show for you.

The Savoia Cavalry command is available to pre.order and I hope to list the Minden Russian cannon on the site this week
