Massimo's new project - Tamai 1884

After his Custer-Set Massimo goes for a new subject - his favourites are Highlanders, so I was sure to see such a set comming up the line:-)

This time I will take for two sets myself, these guys are very useful for a lot of colonial campaigns and I must say I am a fan of Highlanders too.

Some new figures in our shop

Last weekend I got a huge parcel from Andy with all the new sets he made the moulds in the last two weeks.

Several ancient sets from Darek, for example these ones

Roman civilians loading a wagon

Republican Roman infantry

Roman cavalry 3rd century AD

Also new Napoleonic sets like this great British staff I showed last week.

But also a big news is that Minairons decided to join our group too. So now we will have their complete range too. Interesting for those of you who want to safe postage.

My favourites are the Spanish regulares which I will use for the campaign in Morocco in the 1920ies

All the vehicles will come of course too.

Last but not least we were able to get the rights on the range of Uwe Ehmke's figures.
When we buildt the Apern diorama in 2009 Uwe sculpted for me nearly 100 masters for Austrian and French units. Sadly most of the moulds and masters are destroyed and I only have his castings which were not really perfect.

But we have surviving moulds of the Archduke Carl legion, a Freekorps which fought at Aspern. See here a photo from the diorama

And here the new figures

The Franco-Prussian war again

Last week Alfred sent me the latest photos of their 1870 project. In 1:1 scale a Prussian batallion charging a position held by a French batallion.

This could be a centerpiece of a new diorama, I am already painting on the first company of a Zouave batallion to put on their flank:-)

I never can have enough of this period. Maybe next time the figures put on the diorama?
