Warlord Games releases Pike & Shotte Dragoons horse holder set

Warlord Games has their new Dragoon Horse Holder set from their Pike & Shotte line.


From the release:

Dragoons used different tactics than Cavalry. They acted in a scouting role, capturing bridges and woods, and their horses were treated with care and protected from harm, being used for transportation rather than in battle. Their long muskets were impractical to fire from the saddle (and tended to spook the horses), so the regiment would ride into position before dismounting.

Grimsby Wargames Society has another free-to-download flag sheet available on their website, those Saints of Caffeine-Hands that they are.


From the release:

The regiments uploaded are 30th,34th,36th,37th,38th,and 40th, each regiment that mutineered according to eye witness accounts states “A number of regiments carried the royal colours and regiment colours and also flags of slogans” i have also added a number of battle honours to the colours after a lot of research and hope this brings alot of interest to the Indian Mutiny tabletop.

FG MiniZ makes it to their funding goal on Indiegogo

FG MiniZ has made it to their funding goal on Kickstarter for their1806-1807 Prussians over on Indiegogo. They’ve still got 12 days left, so it’s stretch goals from here on out.

From the update:

Thank you very much to all who participates in our campaign and who kindly placed their confidence in our project. Thanks to all the people who spread the word about our campaign on TMP, Facebook and their blogs. And thank you very much fro all the advice given for enhancing our project.

It is great to have reached this limit before the end of the campaign BUT it must not be an achievement.

There are still a lot of beautiful things to unlock: to give a boost to our project we have decided to make something on our side.

We are going to change the stretch goals: 9000 € and 10000 € for Jaegers and Battalion Artillery do not change but we have decided that Hussars in Mirliton and Busby with their command will be unlocked at 11500 € rather than 13000 € ( ie 12 cavalrymen), the 3 Generals and AdCs will be unlocked at 13000 € rather than 15000 € , and the new infantry phase that is to say 36 new figures in charging/advancing poses will be unlocked at 16000 € rather than 18000 €.

I hope these changes will encourage some new participations.

FG Miniz announce Partnership with GMB Designs for 28mm 1806 Prussian

FG MiniZ is now teamed up with GMB Designs for their 28mm Prussian campaign over on Indiegogo.

From the announcement:

I am glad to announce that Grahame at GMB Designs is going to be our partner for our Indiegogo Campaign.

GMB flags are certainly among the best and most researched flags on the market and it is an honor for us that he accepted to be associated with our campaign.

As Grahame wrote: “By coincidence I have recently been updating the artwork for the SYW / early Napoleonic Prussians to conform to the quality of my newer ranges – I’m very pleased with the greater depth of colour and increased detail.
You will already know that the Prussian flags of this time were very colourful. I’ve gone to great lengths with my research and I think I’ve been successful in reproducing the many colours and shades ( the greens alone include, apple green, copper green, olive green, Peacock green, sea green…)”

No doubt that these new flags will be a huge addition to any Prussian Unit.

We have 300 packs of 1806 Prussian GMB flags to offer to level 5 and above from the 03/12/13 at the rate of one pack of your choice per battalion.

To thank our first customers, someone who had already signed for any level before that date will benefit of this offer too.

Grahame has sent us some samples: I will post photos as I get them

New War of 1812 packs from Knuckleduster Miniatures

Knuckleduster Miniatures has released some new War of 1812 packs over on their website.

From the announcement:

Back again with more new stuff!

This time I’ve got two new 1812 packs, and one addition to an old pack.

The first new pack is a set of three British or Canadian officers in round hats . The round hat was more popular among the officer corps than one would think. Renee Chartrand reported that practically all of the British officers at Queenston heights wore them instead of the old cocked hat or the new shakos.

The second pack is long overdue and often requested; British infantry in stovepipe shakos, advancing. This pose is sought after because of it’s versatility; it can readily be used for formed infantry or skirmishers. Put this together with the flank company figures B021, or buy an entire regiment at a significant discount, BRP7.

Finally, I’ve added an NCO to the Glengarry Command pack.
