Ming-Chinese to fight our Japanese

To have a good start into a new week full of work I thought I show you some more of our news.
Here our friend Leonardo (Phersu) sculpted some more enemies for our Japanese.

All in all there are more than 30 Ming-Chinese troops in the pipeline to help the Koreans fighting the invaders. Here photos of the first three sculpts Strange what can happen to medieval artillerymen:-)

Calenzano Museo di Soldatini

When visiting Massimo last year he showed us a great little museum of Toy-soldiers which is run by a group of local collectors. 

Figures and dioramas in all scales, a very impressing museum.  See here a selection of the photos we made there

A medieval party

 One of the series "Dogs in WW1"
 I made detail photos of all of them, thinking about starting a colonial Italian army in 1/72 too.

Armoured cars are my favourites too. In 1/72 available from Reviersco, while this is a 1:35 scale one.

Of course great napoleonic vignettes too.

 Medievals - inspiration for this years Poitiers 1356 project

 Just an overview

 And here how figures are made.

I think some more postings about this museum will follow.

New Samurai and Ashigarus from Massimo

Here we have 20 new figures for our ever growing range of the Japanese attack on Korea 1592.

Very soon these figures will be available too in our shop together with the already available figures.

Much more figures like for example three different units of Ming-Chinese infantry or artillery are in the pipeline.

Constantinople 1453

Some years ago I visited Istanbul. A great place for a hstorian! Here they had a new museum with a Panorama-painting about the siege of 1453.

Or another painting from the Askeri Museum

Now I stumpled over this blog here with a very nice little diorama. See photos like these on the link.

Jackson's Artillery by Frank

Frank who is working on his big Waterloo diorama was so impressed by our ACW artillery that he left his project for a while just to paint these guys here.

And he asked me what will come next in the line. It seems it is possible to change a Napoleonic enthusiast into other subjects too:-)
