I have a report here of some new and old news on the hobby of Toys Soldiers. If you have been following my blog you know that I have been pushing for the Hat crowdfunding effort of the Seven Years Wars Austrians in 1/32 for a while now. Yesterday they announced that the project has been approved! This is great news for us plastic collectors. Not only for us collectors to this time period, but in general for us collectors of plastic in the 1/32 scale. The last few projects that Hat was trying to produce were canceled.
There will be 3 different sets #9329 7YW Austrian Fusiliers, #9330 7YW Austrian Grenadiers and #9331 7YW Austrian Command. The is no release date as of yet. I will give a review when I finally get the sets, hopefully sometime by the end of the year.
In other news, TSSD or Toy Soldiers of San Diego is offering their business for sale. Nick Versteeg is going to retire because of health issues. It’s a sad day for us. I hope his health returns and he can enjoy his retirement. Hobby Bunker is interested in taken over. We shall see what happens.
We have two shows coming up this month. The Ohio Toy Soldier Show is on May 20th. The Texas Toy Soldier show is May 26th & 27th.
“The 12th annual Texas Toy Soldier Show is being held in downtown San Antonio, TX inside The Menger Hotel ballroom.

The LOD Enterprise Toy Soldiers American Revolution Americans and British figures are getting closer to being released. Here are some test shots of the figures. They look great, I can’t wait to set something up later this year with these guys.
I should be getting these Warhansa Vikings any day now. They are in 1/32 scale. I will do a review later this month.
Here are some pictures of Engineer Basevich set #23 “Nomads” or “Polovtsy, Pechenegs and Khazars”. These figures look really nice, they are the opposing set against the “Slavic Warriors” that they had done.
Chintoys has two news sets that should be released later this year. They are set CHT009 Conquistadors and CHT015 Mixtecs & Zapotecs Warriors. They look nice too. Looks like it is a busy year again for plastic. Lest see what else comes out later this year. Thanks for reading.
I hope to continue this summer with some interviews, previews & reviews and projects that I am working on. Thanks again for your interest in this page.
