Askari Miniatures posts June update

Askari Miniatures has a lot of news for June they posted up. Here's what they've got in store...

From the update:

Ready for Summer Campaigns!

Russians Ready; More coming soon
This spring we updated some of the Russian and Italian command sets with new figures. We have also added more Russian infantry, this time with greatcoat rolls as worn in the Balkans. The Russians in winter overcoats got an expanded command set, while the Italian Askaris got buglers to round out their command sets.

We continue to work on sailors and should have some really unique combinations ready soon.

New look on the website/webstore
We continue to modify the website to include more information about our product lines. As I have time I will also be adding some book and rules references--suggestions are welcome!

In the process, I lost some of the polling data--so even if you have voted before in the current Askari poll, please do so again.

TACTICON 2012 in Denver!
This Labor Day weekend Askari Miniatures will again be joining Two Hour Wargames at TACTICON 2012 in Denver. We will have a Russian/Central Asian game and a tomb-raider game as well. More information as the date gets closer. Do come by, say hello, play a game and get some stuff!

Visit the Askari Miniatures site for all these and more.

These German sailors in watch coats have proven quite popular. Stay tuned for more sailors in both at sea and on shore duties.

The Dig Collection

The Dig
We put together a number of boxed sets for a convention we attended with Two Hour Wargames. Included in the box are the archaeologist, diggers, man with donkey and a scenario for Two Hour Wargames' Larger than Life or Colonial Adventures. The set is now available on the website as well.

We've added buglers to the Italian Askari command sets: now you get three different command figures in each set, Italian officer, native NCO and bugler.

New Foreign Legion Coming
Keep a lookout for new French Foreign Legion figures coming out this summer and fall. As usual, we will have unique figures in terms of sytles, uniforms, poses and units
