The Latest News!! 07/31/2021. Warhorse Miniatures Anglo-Saxons.

In my last post we were talking about the new Anglo-Saxon figures I am creating. Production starts at the end of October. Today I have some more previews of prototypes and digital renders of what we are working one. We are in the process of test printing the figures and either changing or fine tuning them. Plus testing different resins to determine what type we will use.

Here are some pictures of digital renders and pictures of prototypes the Blacksmith shop. There are two figures. A Blacksmith and his assistant. The Blacksmith is hammering a spearhead. While the assistant is using a bellow on the fire in the forge. There also is a stone grinder, weapon rack, tool rack, anvil, forge, bench, coal or ash box, bucket with water. There are also some other things that will be included that are not in this picture like a bag of coal and some barrels. Some things might or will be changed before production.

Here are some digital renders and printed porotypes of the Saxon Potter set. The set will include a Potter & his wife, wood shelf, 3 different fire pits or kilns and some pottery. We have two different types of lean to type of structures. One to go against a house or wall and another that could be used on it’s own with a wattle type backing. They have thatched roofs. The Kilns will show how the process of firing the pottery is done. The first Kiln has the pottery placed in it. The second has the fire on top of the pottery. The third on shows the pottery after the fire died out and now it is in the ashes.

Here is one of the peasant figures that we are working on. He is the hunter. We have changed how he looks. We added a new face, a hood, quiver case. We resized the knife and hands. So far he has printed out nicely.

We also redesigned the “Pig Guy” or the boar herder. We changed the spearhead and made it longer. Adjusted his hands and changed his face.

Here are some digital renders of figures that we are working on that have been updated or changed.

Here are some other things we are working on. A couple of different houses and more figures. The sets we are working on now should be in final production in September. We will have a set of Anglo-Saxon Peasants, Stamford Bridge Add-On set, At least 2 different houses, a Blacksmith shop, a Potter shop and a Viking Raider camp. Maybe some other things if we have time. After that we hope to be able to release a new set every month. The goal for the first phase is to create a world. Show how the people lived and then show how others tried to destroy it…

Over the next month we will continue to work on resin mixtures to create a type that is both strong and flexible. We think we have what we are looking for right now. You can drop these figures from about 4 feet without breaking. There will be two different types of resin for the figures to choose from. One for the collector’s that are going to paint the miniatures and one for the plastic type collectors. The tests for dying the resin to create different colors will start in a couple of weeks. The Saxons we hope to match to the Conte Saxons in a rusty orange. The same goes for the Vikings & Normans that will eventually come. They will be matched to the Conte colors.

Don’t forget about the Columbus Toy Soldier Show in October. This is where we will premiere our new figures. Thank you for reading. That is it for now.

The Latest News!! 07/09/2021. Warhorse Miniatures 3D figure Preview, Warhansa Medieval Knight Review & More..

Circle your calendar for October 17th for the Columbus Toy Soldier show. At the show I will beginning selling my 3D printed miniatures. We will begin with some Anglo-Saxon figure sets, houses and other accessories. Plus a Viking Raider camp. Today in this post you will see some prototypes of a few figures. Some of these figures will or might be changed. Besides testing out the structural design of the figures we are also testing out different types of resins. Once we figure out what type and/or combination of resins we will start pricing of the figures and accessories. These miniatures are scaled to match Conte & W. Britain figures. They are around 57mm. Some might be a little bigger or smaller. I am labeling these as 1/31 in scale. Since they are not the true 54mm with is 1/32. Later on we will scale these figures and most of the accessories in the true 1/32 or 54mm and then 28mm.

Here is the original color of the resin for these prototypes. I later primed them and painted them a solid brown color to help show the details.

Here is a Saxon Peasant herding some domesticated Boars.

Here is an Saxon hunter with a bow and a rabbit.

Here is a Saxon chopping some wood logs.

Here is a tall Saxon carrying some wheat that he just harvested. This figure is going to be redesigned.

Here is the last porotype that I have to show today. It is another Anglo-Saxon Peasant that is pulling a cart. The cart can be filled with a piece of chopped wood logs or a pile of wheat.

Here are some of the prototypes compared to some Conte plastic and metal figures.

Here are some prototypes with some W. Britain and Conte figures.

Some prototypes with some Warhansa figures.

Here are some prototypes with some Barzso figures.

Here is a digital design for a Saxon house.

Here are some Boars running away or fighting back against random figures.

In the coming weeks we will be showing more previews and prototypes. This is only the beginning . We are on a journey to create a Anglo-Saxon village. There will be different houses, plenty of peasants, craftsmen and warriors. Once we finish the 1st phase we will expand into other themes.

Here is a set of Medieval Knights by Warhansa. Five figures in five different poses. They are made out of a rubbery type of resin. The set is based on some of the old Robin Hood or Ivanhoe Hollywood movies. The figures are nicely detailed and the pose are good too. The are about 57mm tall. You can check out their website over here, https://www.warhansa.com/katalog/medieval_knights.html.

Here are the Knights with other brands.

Here is the Ukrainian Cossacks XVII century set by Kit Soldiers. They are a company from Ukraine. The set is made up of 8 figures in 8 different poses. The material is polyethylene and they are 1/32 in scale. For more information you can check out their FB page, https://www.facebook.com/Kit-Soldiers-104648945096855. You can also contract Alek, https://www.facebook.com/aleks.kot.3532.

I will have more information in the coming weeks about the 3D printed figures. You can also check out my page of this website for the 3D printed figures, Warhorse Miniatures 3D Figures. That is is for now. Thanks for reading.

The Latest News!! 07/07/2021. Conte Romans & LOD Barzso American Rangers Review. Plus Some Publius Vikings.

Welcome back for another post about toys soldiers. I hope all is well with everyone. As usual I have been real busy with work, eBay and all of my hobbies. No rest for the wicked… Today we will take a look at Conte’s new Romans, LOD Barzso American Rangers, some Publius Vikings.

I recently purchased some of Conte’s new Romans. They come in 3 different colors of Red, Silver & Gold. The are 1/32 in scale or about 57mm if they were standing tall. Each bag has 16 figures. They are packed nicely. Inside the plastic bag the figures are broken down in separate bags. Plus some have plastic supports.

Some of the figures can be customized with different arms. This way you can have some extra poses. Most of the Romans are armed with a Pilum or a Gladius. I am glad that Richard was able to produce these plastic toy soldiers. Because of the cost we see less plastic injected figures being made. I don’t have too many Ancient themed toy soldiers. The ones that I do have are Barbarians or Celtic Warriors. Now I have some Romans to fight them. We should see some future Roman sets down the line.

Right now you can order from the Conte website, 3 sets for $99 with free shipping. Here is the website, https://contecostore.myshopify.com/.

When I was collecting Barzso Playset products one of the sets that I wish I had purchased was the American Rangers. It is a hard set to find at a reasonable price in the secondary market. Now I don’t have to worry about that because Ken at LOD Toys Soldiers has reissued them again. They are cast from the original molds and in the original lime green color or close to it. This is a great set. They are a little bigger than the earlier Colonial sets but blend well with them.

Renamed “Roger’s Rangers 3” this set was originally released in 2010 for the Bushy Run playset. Seven figures in seven poses.

I just checked the link for these figures and noticed that they are now sold out!!! I guess you will have to keep an eye out to see if the get restocked again. Here is the link for the Rangers, https://lodtoysoldiers.com/collections/barzso-figure-sets-resin/products/rogers-rangers-set-3-lod43.

A few months ago I got these Publius Vikings. As usual they are super detailed. They are about 58mm in height not counting the base. The second Viking in the above picture is a little bigger than the others.

The cost of these figures is between $10 to $25 and can be found on eBay. They are cast in a rubbery type of resin.

These figures fit nicely with a bunch of different brands.

I will have some news in a few weeks about the things I am working on. These will be 3D printed. We are testing some new figures and some other things. Thank you for reading. That is it for now.

The Latest News!! 06/06/2021. Warhansa English Merrymen and Publius Mounted American Native Review.

Today we remember the Brave American, British, Canadian & other allied Soldiers that gave their lives when they stormed the beaches of Normandy to fight the forces of Germany.

The Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.

Today I am doing a quick post about some new products from Warhansa and then a figure from Publius. The first Warhansa set is called “Friends of Robin Hood”. There are 6 figures included. It looks like we get Little John, Friar Tuck, a Merry man with a pitchfork, Will Scarlet, a Jester and Maid Mirian.

The figures look really sharp. List as 1/32 in scale. They are nice size and will blend very well with Conte & Barzso medieval figures. The poses are good too. Weapons are to scale. I give them an A. The only figure I don’t need is the Jester. But he has his use in a court some where…

The other set is called “Forest Camp”. It has a camp fire and an animal spit roasting above it. Plus some barrels and chest. Some much needed accessories that we need a ton more for displays.

These items can be used with a lot of other brands as well. You can visit the Warhansa website over here to see more, http://warhansa.com/katalog.html?new=1&start=16.

Here is a new figure by Publius. He is a mounted Native American or a Plains Indian on a horse. This figure is very nice. Again 1/32 in scale. He is a little bigger than the TSSD figures. But will make a nice leader for you figures.

I found these trees in a train hobby shop last month. I purchase about all that they had. Not bad for about $3.00 a piece.

I am still working on some new figures. We are testing different designs and resins. I hope to be able to share something new in a few weeks. That is it for now. Thank you for reading.

The Latest News!! 05/30/2021. Conte Romans!! Warhansa English Knights and Drakkar Warriors set Review.

To my fellow Countrymen. When your sitting around drinking a beer, grilling some food on the BBQ, going to the beach or doing nothing at all, it’s because of American blood that was spent protecting your rights and freedom. Remember all the fallen Heroes this holiday weekend and every day also. Because Freedom, isn’t Free.

The Conte Collectibles plastic Roman sets are now available. The come in 3 different colors of Red, Silver and Gold. They look really nice. I will have some in the near future to do a review. Right now they are $35 a for a bag of 16 figures or you can get 3 bags for $99 and free shipping. Head over to the Conte website to order some here, https://contecostore.myshopify.com/collections/all.

Plastic Platoon is starting to show some previews of their American Revolution figures and they just released an Artillery set. Now they are doing some figures based on the Battle of Bushy Run which took place during the Pontiac War period. I am looking forward to this. I hope to learn more about what they have planned for a future post.

The guys at Warhansa were kind enough to send me some pictures of the latest sets. The first one are English Knights based off of an old movie. They have that Robin Hood/Ivanhoe feel to them. I like them and will do a review in the future. The second set is of movie characters from the 1990’s. Can you guess what movies they are based from?

Here is the Viking Drakkar set. The set is made up of 5 figures, 4 Male warriors and 1 Female. They make great character figures for your Dark Age figures. I like the female warrior the best. The removable base is a nice idea too. You can check out their page over here, http://warhansa.com/.

I am working on a few things and hopefully they work out the way I want them. I will keep you updated. That is about it for now. Thank you for reading.

I just got a few boxes over the last few days from Russia. I am doing a quick review on the Archer set from Warhansa today. Then over the next few weeks I will do some reviews on others sets or figures that I received. There are five figures in the set. Three are with bows and two are fighting with weapons. There also two sets of stakes and a three loose arrows. This is a very well detailed set and the figure blend nicely with other brands that fit into the “Big” 1/32 scale. I took some pictures of different brands(Barzso, Conte and Publius) to show you how they look. Check out their website to see more over here, https://www.warhansa.com/.

Here is a preview of the next review below. That is it for now. Thank you for reading.

Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show 2021 Review

It was almost two years since the last Gettysburg Toy Soldier show. The 2020 show was cancelled because of the pandemic. The show had a great attendance. There was 45 dealers, 95 tables and over 200 attendees came the through the door. About every hour there was a prize of a $25 show gift certificate for a lucky collector. Which was a welcomed surprise to the winners.

Before I start. I apologize if I missed anyone or forgot your name with this post. It was a lot easier doing a review when you were just there as a collector instead as both a collector and seller.

Rick Eber said “It was a great show and they broke records for attendance (well over 200). I didn’t sit down until 2:00pm. Sold 12 playsets and tons of loose items. John Anderson (Onice Anderson) was up to his usual antics…buying and selling in rapid fashion. Met a bunch of new collectors to the hobby and several old time collectors/friends for the first time as well. Allan Ford sold at least 5 playsets and Mark Hegeman was super busy at his booth all day. Todd Nace bought several playsets to add to his depleted stock as he sold almost everything at the Lafayette show. Stephen Connell fell asleep at his table as he was exhausted from his hollering at us dealers all day…”Put Your Damn Masks On !!” Rick Keller and Ricky Lipps were selling out almost from what I could see…lots of great deals at their table. Great show for sure….that’s all I got.”

Mark Hegeman said “It was definitely busy. I barely had time to wander. I love meeting and talking with people and “sharing” my collection. Everything on my tables is something I originally bought for my collection. Most items are now doubles/extras and some are things I lost interest in or decided I will never have room to display.

We will now start the tour of the show. I was not able to talk to each vendor or take pictures of each of them. I did take some random pictures of things that caught my eye. We will start with MicShaun’s Closet. David & Kim Cook came up from Tennessee with a bunch of plastic bagged sets of toy soldiers and foam buildings.

Next we have Rick Eber’s tables of vintage playsets and mainly Marx plastic figures. Rick as usually is a “Gold mine” for rare or hard to find vintage toys.

Now we visit Gary Green. Gary brings his mobile shop with him. His pre loaded shelves are set up like hobby store. He mainly sells boxed sets of 1/32 & 1/72 plastic toy soldiers. Also at the shows he usually has bins full of loose toys soldiers so you pick what you want. They are listed at different prices depending on the bin you are digging through.

Next check out the vendor that was promoting the “Heart of the South Toy Soldier & Miniature Figure Show and Sale”. The next show is Saturday, June 5th, 2021 at 9am to 3pm at The Annandale VFD Community Center, 7128 Columbia Pike, Annandale, Virginia 22003. He had a mixture of different plastic and painted metal soldiers loose in bins.

We will now visit Joe Baker of playsetaddict.com fame. Joe was promoting the 3D printed figures made by Speira Miniatures. They look nice. Joe also had some Conte toy soldiers for sale too.

Next we visit Larry Lovely. He had plastic soldiers in bins to dig through.

The place we go are the tables that belonged to Mark Hegeman. He had a nice selection of vintage plastic toys soldiers, playsets and vintage toys.

Mark saidNext show for me is the Marx Convention in Wheeling, WV in mid June. Visit the web site of the Kruger Street Toy and Train Museum for details.

Next we go visit the vendor that was next to Mark. I forgot his name, sorry. He also had a bunch of vintage playsets and toy soldiers.

Here are some pictures of the painted metal toy soldiers that Memphis Toy Soldiers was selling.

Next we have some pictures from different vendors.

Now we head over to Todd Nace’s table. He was one of my neighbors at the show. A great guy to deal with when it comes to vintage toys. He had some nice stuff at the show.

Next we will see what the vendor that was next to the Cooks at the show. He had old painted metal toy soldiers for sale.

Now for some pictures of some vintage and modern playsets.

Now we have some more pictures from random vendors.

The next vendor we look at is Robert Hornung. As usual he had his hand crafted and painted miniatures. He is at most of the shows that I attend.

Next we see Paul Amody’s Russian made metal figures.

We now have some pictures of what John Stengel had. When I got to his tables he had sold most of the things that he had brought with him. This is what he had left.

Here is a picture of Steve Connell. He had some painted metal toy soldiers for sale.

The next vendor was Tom Dubel. He had a bunch of painted metal figures.

Next we have Trains and Toy Soldiers. They had some painted metal toys soldiers for sale.

Now we will take a look at some random pictures from the show.

The next vendor travelled from Arizona for the show. It was a mini vacation also. Ron & Ron Jr Mayer are a Father & Son team that run “Where Eagles Dare, Toys & Hobbies”. They had a lot of model kits, bagged plastic toy soldiers, metal figures and other toys. They were my neighbors too. They were right next to Calvin Plowman.

And last but not least was the Infamous Mike Prendergast and his Warhorse Miniatures….

I had with me a bunch of LOD Barzso figures and plastic bagged sets of War of Troy figures. Plus the Medieval figures. Also some foam buildings and Mars plastic sets. I also had vintage figures for sale. I was supposed to have some Russian made sets but because of shipping delays the have not arrived yet. The same goes for my own Anglo Saxons. I am waiting for some weapons to complete 25 sets. If all goes well I should hopefully have these for the next show I will attend as a vendor in October at the Columbus Toy Soldier Show.

I also had on display some 3D printed items. I will be selling some 3D printed accessories in the near future. The first thing that I have is a Viking Raider camp. It will have a few different tents and supplies. These accessories will allow your Vikings to have a camp set up right after they departed their Longship. I will more information on this and other projects in a future blog post.

It was nice to see the crowds & vendors back for the show. The only thing missing was big painted metal dealer. I didn’t even purchase anything at the show. I would have spent $300 to $500 for some more W. Britain & John Jenkins Vikings and Saxons. Other collectors were disappointed too. Hopefully that will change for the next show. I would like to thank the two people that gave me a gift. They will join my collection. Thank you for reading and that is it for now.

The Latest News!! Gulliver Wild West Toy Solder Review, Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show, New LOD Medieval figure colors and Hobby News!! 04/10/2021

Sunday April 18th is almost here. The Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show is about a week away. This will be the 1st major toy soldier show in over a year on the East coast. Gettysburg is a perfect place for a show. It has history and charm. There are plenty of same shops in the town also. A great place to get away for a weekend or a week. For more information about the show look at these two links. The first is from my page, The Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show 2021. The second link is from the promoters, http://www.mwtoysoldier.com/.

In my last post I wrote about the Gulliver Toy Soldiers. The figures are copies of Atlantic Toy Soldiers. I ordered the Cowboy Camp Playset because it had a mixture of Cowboys & Indians. Here is the link from the eBay seller called Andre, https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fort-Apache-Vintage-Old-West-Cowboys-Indians-Action-Figure-Cowboy-Camp-Playset/184705885173.

I was surprised on the size of the box and playset. The set includes 24 figures, 3 horses, 3 teepees, 2 trees, 1 wagon, and some camp accessories. Here are some pictures of the accessories for the set. Most of the accessories are original products that were made by Gulliver.

There are 12 Cowboys & Miner figures and 2 horses.

You can switch the mounted figures from the horses to the wagon.

One the bottom of the figures they are labeled Gulliver. This is good. Collectors will know the difference in the future if they find these figures loose in the wild.

There are 12 Native American Indian figures and 1 horse. Most of these figures depict life at the in a camp setting.

The last figure below was a lot smaller than most of the other figures. I don’t know if these was an original Atlantic figure.

Most of the figures are about 56mm or so. They are smaller than the original Atlantic figures. Most of the Atlantic figures were 60mm. I have a few pictures below for comparison to see how the match up with either Atlantic or some other brands.

Here are 5 figures below show the scale comparison. In order starting from the left is a Conte Alamo figure, Gulliver Cowboy, Barzso Merryman, Gulliver Native Indian and 54mm Marx Viking. You can see the different sizes with the Gulliver figures. I will try to find some Atlantic Indians in the future for comparison.

Some original Atlantic Outlaws in brown compared to the Gulliver figures below.

Here is 1/32 Barzso Merry Man figure below with the Gulliver tree. They look really nice together.

All in all I am very happy to add these figures to my collection. The details of the figures are nice. The plastic feels like the Atlantic plastic. The green color was the only color that I didn’t like. Some are 54mm in size like Airfix or Marx. Then some are like the new big 1/32 scale figures that are about 55mm or 56mm size. The TSSD and Paragon figures are about that size too.

I have a collection of Western toy soldiers in different scales. I have a bunch of foreign made Cowboys and Indians. They are mostly around 60mm in size. You can mix some of these figures with other brands with no problems. Andre is a good seller from Brazil. It took about a week for the figures to arrive. The set was surrounded by packing peanuts so nothing would get damaged. Take a look at the other Gulliver sets that he has over here, https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_sac=1&_ssn=andre17&_osacat=220&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313&_nkw=Gulliver&_sacat=220. Andre said that there should be some new sets in the future from Gulliver.

LOD Toy Soldiers has some new colors for their Medieval Sheriff’s Men & Robin Hood Merry Men sets. The Merry Men are in a new tan color and the Sheriff’s Men are in a new Gold color now. They look really nice. I will have some of these sets for sale at the Gettysburg Toy Show next Sunday.

As I was writing this post up Ken messaged me about an update on the American Revolution Cavalry set that he is working on. They look great. Here is what Ken said, Here are three of the prototypes for the new Calvary sets. I received them this week from the factory. If you would like to include them in your post, feel free to do so. There will be six poses in each set plus we will offer a bonus pose with a flintlock on its own.You can check the LOD page over here, https://lodtoysoldiers.com/.

Here are a few things that I have found out in the wild at some local flea markets. I found 4 more metal cannons for $10. Three of them I can use for the French & Indian War era. These cannons are about 1/32 in scale.

I found this Motorworks U.S. Sherman Tank for $27. It is about 1/32 in scale.

Who knows what I will find next week at the Gettysburg show? I think it will be a great show as usual. My next post will be about the show. Until then, that is it for now.

The Latest News!! Midwest Toy Soldier and Hobby News!! 03/28/2021

Last weekend was the Midwest Toy Soldier Show. It takes place over three days. Two days of room trading and one day for a conventional toy show. I was not able to take part in this year’s show. Like many others I was able to see some things from pictures posted on FB. I also was sent some pictures and information about the show. Collector Jason Evans provided me most of the photos and information about the show.

From what I heard the vendors and crowds were back. Almost back to normal. Here are some pictures from a couple of rooms. I will start with Atherton Scenics’s room. John had a bunch of foam products with him. Jason Evans provided me with these pictures.

Here are a couple of pictures below of what Robert Hornung had with him. He hand makes and paints his miniatures. Jason told me that Robert had some nice stuff.

Jason did some room trading also. Here are a few pictures that he took. The last two pictures are some of the things that he got while there. He found some nice King & Country products.

Next we have some pictures of Scott Canady’s room. He had a lot of vintage plastic toy soldier playsets and figure sets.

Willy Pickett had some hand painted mats to display vintage plastic toy soldiers. They looked awesome.

Collector Joe Baker had posted some pictures of the 3D printed Speira figures that he was selling at the show.

I heard that the show was good. The vendors and collectors returned to buy & sell. Here are a some pictures of the show thanks to Jason Evans & Michele Keller. Looks like there was plenty of vintage plastic, some rare Barzso playsets, highly detailed painted metal figures, plus imported plastic toy soldiers and other vintage metal figures.
