Progress Updates

2015-08-24 00:00:00

Yes, it really has been that quiet over the last couple of weeks with not a great deal to report on.  Given that the questions have been coming in to me, here's where we are with new releases.

The most obvious thing to say is that the WW2 range has not appeared.  This is because the masters came out of the mould in  a poor state to the point that we've had to go back to the beginning and start again.  This has been a minor disaster for us as that's a big investment in time and money gone down the drain, but we'd rather do that then offer poor quality figures.   This means that the first releases have been pushed back to October. 

On a much more positive note there will soon be lots of new goodies appearing in the Great War ranges, as the later French will be arriving shortly along with mortars of all shapes and sizes for all nationalities and some really BIG guns.

Also making good progress although not for immediate release are the replacements for the elderly Spanish Succession figures.  You'll see much more on this in the coming weeks, but here's a taster in the form of a base of the new Horse, which are painted up (inevitably) as the Regt de Berry...

Joy of Six 2015 - The Report

2015-07-23 00:00:00

In break with tradition, the morning of JOS15 started off cold, wet and gloomy.   However, that didn’t seem to put people off as there was soon a steady stream of traders and gamers threading through Sheffield’s deadly one-way system and turning up outside Sheffield Hallam University and unloading their vehicles.

As is now our custom, we'll be staging two seminars at the JOS15.  Both are open to anyone to attend and we invite and welcome audience participation and interaction, although anyone carrying bags of rotten produce to use as ammunition may be relieved of their burden before entering the room...

The Joy of Six - not just for the wargamers amongst us...

2015-07-09 00:00:00

It's all very well doing these toy soldier shows, but look at it from the point of view of the wife/girlfriend/partner/small child dragged along to these events.   Let's face it there's only so many times you can look at a table full of tiny little men and houses before the appeal begins to fade.   On top of that you are getting hot, tired, thirsty and bored.   Normally there is no respite and no hope of something vaguely resembling 'normality'.   Well, in keeping with our ethos, this year, the Joy of Six will be offering something different.

Sheffield Triples

2015-05-14 00:00:00

Time to remind you all that it's Sheffield Triples this weekend.  With a sense of timing that not only borders on, but actually nuzzles up and moves in with incompetence, I am announcing this at the same time as telling you that it's too late to place any pre-orders...

Post-Salute thanks

2015-04-26 00:00:00

Just a quick few words to thank all concerned for Salute.   The Warlords put in their usual impressive stint to get the whole thing running with impressive efficiency.  No easy task and one well executed on the day.   Thanks also to
