We now have in the following new items from Oddzial Osmy of Poland:
ML02 Lithuanian Command
NA01A Austrian infantry – German fusiliers marching
SA6102 BMP1 plus infantry
SA6103 BTR60PB plus infantry
US617 US infantry
In the Napoleonics, code NA01A replaces code NA01, which is now deleted and unavailable. All figures in the box are now marching, rather than in mixed poses.
British modern AFVs in 1:600 will not be available till late July.
We have the first figures in stock in Aude's 15mm Italian War of Independence 1848 range. Packs contain 24 figures including command – enough to make one regiment of two battalions, according to Aude.
Initial releases are line infantry, granatieri and bersaglieri for the Kingdom of Sardinia, and jagers for the Austro-Hungarians. We shortly hope to have cavalry and artillery for Sardinia, and infantry and artillery for the Austro-Hungarians.
Packs are GBP9.50 each.
The first of our new releases in the 15mm Flags for AB range are now available: Brunswick 1815, and Saxony.
The Brunswick flags provide 2 flags for each of the three line battalions in 1815, plus two other designs that may have seen use.
The Saxon flags include the 1802 infantry pattern for the 1806-09 campaigns, and the 1810 pattern. The 1810 pattern suits the existing Saxon figures from AB; the 1802 pattern suits the forthcoming 1806 Saxons from Eureka. Cavalry flags are also available. The Saxon flags are in the Confederation of the Rhine section.
All sheets are priced at GBP3.00 each.
We will be further expanding the Flags for AB range, with flags for Hanover and the Dutch-Belgian forces in 1815 intended as the next releases.
Our stock of 15mm AB French Imperial Guard has arrived, bar a few codes (no AB-IG15 for example).
The next nation due in from Eureka is the 1812-15 Prussians, and then probably the 1812-15 Russians. The Prussians should be here in about a month, the Russians somewhat later.
We still have absolutely no stock of the minor nations (Confederation, Grand Duchy, Brunswick etc), Britain, Spain, or Portugal, and completion of orders for these figures and for the Prussians and Russians above still takes about five to six weeks.
We now have initial stocks of Flashing Blade's new releases for its 10mm 1815 Napoleonics line.
British arrivals include Life Guards, Heavy Dragoons, Scots Greys and Light Dragoons, plus artillery crew and guns. On the French side are Cuirassiers, Carabiniers, Dragoons, Hussars, Lancers, Guard Chasseurs a Cheval, Guard Grenadiers a Cheval and Guard Lancers.
All cavalry packs are GBP3.50 and contain 12 figures; artillery packs contain 12 crew or 3 cannon and cost GBP1.75. Owing to demand, stocks of some codes are limited (no Scots Greys or French Dragoons), but we should be fully stocked shortly.
It is mid-Monday afternoon and we have arrived back from Valhalla. Orders placed since last Thursday for which we have the figures in stock may not go out until tomorrow (Tuesday).
Valhalla was very quiet, and despite some welcome attention from the organising club's members in the Oddzial Osmy 1:600 range, we will be giving strong consideration as to whether it is worth including in next year's line-up of shows.
Three new figures have been released in Shadowforge's 28mm Characters range: Mayah, Swordmistress; Scarlet, Monster Hunter; and Ninna-chi, Astro-corp Security. The figures are GBP2.25 each and are available in the shop now.
Joining our line-up of figures from Shadowforge are the 35mm Mini Manga and Tiny Toons ranges. Most figures in these ranges are GBP2.75, except MM109 (GBP3.00), MM113 and MM114 (GBP4.35). All are now available in the shop.
Marcin at Oddzial Osmy is on holiday until the end of June, and I will be unable to order restocks and new releases until then. This particularly affects the 20mm US Paratroopers, which went out of stock yesterday (from a state of abundance) and will not therefore be back in stock until mid-July.
The scene stealing extras set is now available. The set includes a splendidly ornate well (resin and metal), six figures (Constance, Monsieur Bonancieux, Planchet, a hired blade and two serving wenches), and more scenery. A pack of dropped weapon and stun markers is available separately. The rules, And One For All, have been revised and are available here (see Links, Rules) along with a scenario, Capture of Constance. The set is GBP31.75; the markers, GBP3.50.
Eureka's 28mm Apes in Space, starring Aperella, and gibbon Strike Force G are now available in the shop in the Boiler Suited Apes range. We apologise for the length of time it has taken to get both these items in stock – we've been waiting for supplies of the Aperella set. The indiviual codes for the Gibbons in Strike Force G are now in the shop, but you'll get a better price buying the set!
