Battle of Nantwich 1644

 Today's anniversary is this battle in Cheshire.  The Sealed Knot usually reenact it braving the cold and mud but this year had to give it a miss.

Khurasan WSS/Marlburian 15-18mm


From the Khurasan webpage

Somebody was asking on a forum what were the best WSS in that scale. I know these as they kindly sent me some review figures and they are very good. See the range here

A Call to Arms 1/32 ECW


Thought I would post about these figures. The last manufacturer of soft plastic toy soldiers in the UK and thankfully thriving. As it stands at the moment they do harquebusiers, lobsters (pic), musket, pike, command, artillery. Great fun to convert with it easy to headswap being soft. Cheap too. Get them here

Braddock Down 1643

 Today's anniversary. Royalist victory in Cornwall. Wiki

Steel Fist English Civil War 15mm

 Steel Fist Miniatures English Civil War 15mm range stock has arrived.

We are delighted to announce that the stock arrived form the mould-maker this week and Simon is going to commence processing Kickstarter orders then pre-orders next week. The figures are already available on the website if anyone wants to order them but the orders will not be processed until the Kickstarter orders are done.

As some of you may know these are the first 11 packs of what we hope will become the best 15mm range on the market. We have endeavoured to put the detail of 28mm figures into this range here are a couple of pictures of the castings that I have inked up, we are really happy with the quality, Griffin have done a great job in capturing the detail and you will be able to achieve grand scale collections with very fine detail. Over the coming year there will be artillery, characters and many more troop types added. The next packs should be out in March.
