NEW!!!!! BARZSO BATTLE OF LEXINGTON GREEN
WAR HORSE MINIATURES
06-01-2014. Hey, check out these 54mm Toy Soldiers from Expeditionary Force. Right now they are making American Civil War Soldiers, Ancient Greeks and Persians. Plus some other figures in 40mm. Looks like they will be making new items in the future too ( =
03-21-2013. Got these from Italy, they were made by P.R.B. Never heard about them and never saw them before. But they look real good, think they are around 60mm. Going to paint these guys up and use them as some of my leaders.
03-21-2013. Picked this guy up on ebay a few weeks ago, don't know who made him. Trying to find out and get some more in better condition.
03-21-2013. Found these American Indian/Cavemen called "Brave Man" the other day. They are crude, but I think I can convert some and should look decent painted.
06-03-2012. New figures by Replicants, British Culloden infantry. They can be used for the French & Indian War or Seven Years War too. Still waiting for these to be made again, hopefully they will pop up in the near future. Here is a little bit from the Replicants website. "These figures represent Culloden British (although the uniforms of European and American armies of this period did not vary very much, so they can be painted to represent almost any army). The grenadier heads are provided because apart from headgear there was hardly any difference between grenadier uniforms and the standard infantry uniforms.
The "pushing the bayonet" pose was part of the British army drill at this time. The Replicant pushing-the-bayonet figure is oddly positioned: he has his bayonet angled slightly to the right of the direction in which his body is facing. When a line of Jacobites armed with broadswords and targes faced a line of British, this position enabled the bayonet to strike the Jacobite to the immediate right of the one directly opposite, getting in between their two shields." Hope to have some news about this soon, don't forget to check out the New Barzso set. Link is above ( =
05-26-2012. Check out the link above on Barzso Battle of Lexington Green.
05-24-2012. I picked up some soldiers that are made by Hat, they are the 7 Years War Prussians in action. Still waiting for the marching set to come in the mail and I will show they in about a week or so. I have some Hat figures but was never really interested in them, until now. I really like what they have done here and the best part is the option they give to change there hats. You can have a Fusiliers, Grenadiers or Musketeers. They are made for the & Years War as Prussian Infantry, but can be used as a Hessian for the American Revolution. Or as a stretch as French Infantry for the French & Indian War. You get 18 figures, 18 hats for Musketeers, 9 hats for Grenadiers and 9 hats for Fusiliers. Still waiting about a web page change, but for now I will work with what I have.
05-07-2012. Hey all, I'm working on revamping this site. I want to add pages about the best figures to use for the period that your interested in, pictures that show uniforms for painting, plus some history to go along with this. And some other things. Hope it is finished in the next few weeks ( = .
05-01-2012. Got back from Gettysburg yesterday, went to the Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show on 04-29-2012. I was nice, my girlfriend even won the door prize ( =. Had a feeling that she would. We got there a little late in the day, drove about 2 & 1/2 hours to get there. We stay in Gettysburg after the show and looked around the town & battlefield. Stayed overnight and to make it a mini get away. There were some nice setups of Toy Soldiers, had a mix of plastic and metal painted figures. Saw a few Barzso Playsets, that I had or didn't want to spend the money on right now. I picked up a few Indians from Marx & an another British company. Also got a painted Mounted Native American Indian from Blackhawk. Got a good deal, I post some pictures of the figures that I got over the weekend. Here are some pictures of the show.
