I like most of the new figures being released. In the near future I will be selling Star Wars figures made by Hasbro. The Star Wars Toys and other products will be sold on this new page I made over here, Toys for Sale.
I hope every one is doing well. Most of you are getting cabin fever about now. I bet every one is tired of watching the news too. I put together a short post about some Runecraft & Publius Vikings.
The figures of Publius and Runecraft are very detailed. They are mini sculptures. You can find these being sold on eBay by a couple of different sellers. They can be found cast in a hard resin, a soft rubbery type resin and in metal. They are 1/32 scale or about 57mm. You can see more figures at https://www.publius.ru/.
Show Update: The Midwest Toy Soldier Show has been rescheduled for June 07, 2020. You can contact the hotel for your room reservations. If things change, you’ll be able to get the info here and on our Facebook page.
With every thing going on my plans for my set of Anglo Saxons has been pushed back. I probably will have everything ready in the Fall. I will have a post about the Saxons in a couple of months. I will have a few posts over the next week about different things. Thanks again for reading.
I hope everyone is doing well in these troubled times. If you have not heard yet the Midwest Toy Soldier Show is postponed. You can read more on their website, http://www.mwtoysoldier.com/.
In my last post I reviewed a few sets from Warhansa. Today I will review the last set I received. I think it is the best one that they sent me. Maybe their best set to date. It depicts English Knights from the 100 Years War. Five figures in all. The scale is 1/32. They are made out of a rubbery resin. They look like Men at Arms for the most part. Maybe one knight. The Archer is my favorite of the set. The detail is really nice. You can see more from Warhansa over here, https://warhansa.com/.
Warhansa figures sets are really improving. The main issue I had with some of their past sets was the over sized weapons. This set does not have that issue. Here are some comparisons with figures from Conte and Dulcop.
That concludes the review. I might have another post up tomorrow. If not then sometime next week. Take Care & be safe. Thank you for reading.
In the last week things have started to get crazy with the Corona Virus. As of right now the Midwest Toy Soldier Show is still on. But I don’t think I will be able to make it. I live over 12 hours away. They are starting to advise the closing of public stores and restaurants now. Plus the CDC is advising to keep gatherings of less than 50 people. So things don’t look to good.
I found these a few months ago for about $15. I used to see these in Target years ago, but never purchased any. At this price I had to pick them up. They look pretty cool to me.
I received a few Warhansa sets from Yury to do a review. I found some time today to take some pictures of 3 different sets. You can check out more sets at the their website over here, https://warhansa.com/.
Here is a set of WWII Russian Infantry. They are made of plastic in 1/32 scale. They are flats. I like the details. They look pretty cool. The plastic feels like the Barzso resin.
Here are a set of Skeletons. When I first saw these online I was not really interested in them. But seeing them first hand I really like them. The weapon scale on the Warhansa figures have really improved lately. The scale is the bigger 1/32. Probably about 56mm to 57mm. They are made out of a rubbery resin.
Here is the last set of figures that I am going to show today. This is a set of Gladiators. It includes three gladiators and one lion. This set is really nice. The details are good. The scale of the weapons good. I also like the color. It reminds me of the Atlantic Gladiators. They are made of a rubbery resin.
I took some pictures of the Warhansa Gladiator figures next to some Atlantic Gladiator figures. They look good when mixed together.
This virus is very frustrating to everyone. I hope it will be over in a few weeks. But it is what it is. In my next post I have another Warhansa set to review. That is it for now. Thank you for reading.
It has been about a month since my last post. I have been real busy with work and getting ready for the Midwest Toy Soldier Show. I wanted to make a quick post about some new figures and also an update on my figures.
Alexey has been busy revamping his company. I received a bunch of figures from him this week. He started working with some new sculptors and here is some of the results.
1 BEP (1 parachute battalion Foreign legion, the Battle of Dien Bien Phu) 5 figures: gunner, sniper, legionnaire grenade, two Legionnaire with sub-machine gun. Scale: 1/32
Legionnaire with a grenade.
Legionnaire with sub-machine gun wearing a helmet.
Legionnaire with two sub-machine gun wearing a beret.
Here is a Mercenary figure that can be purchased by itself. He reminds me of an IRA Freedom Fighter. The figure does fit really very with the Indo-China set. You can see more of Prikaz over here Prikaz Toy Soldiers.
Publius is working on a Iroquois Indian set. The prototypes look great. I just got a bunch of Publius figures that I will review in a couple of weeks.
In my last post we talked about the limited set of Anglo Saxons miniatures that I am having produced. I received some of the sets this week. Here are some pictures of the final figure cast. Hopefully I will be able to put some sets together for the show. I need more of the 8th figure to complete more sets. Some of these figures are cast without a shield or hand with a spear. This was done for two reasons. The first was to get a nicer cast figure. The second reason was to avoid a spaghetti type spear being cast. After some tests the spearmen will be cast in two different resins. The figure will be cast in a rubbery type resin and the hand with the spear will be cast in a harder resin to avoid the bending of the spear. My vision of this set was to have a Saxon Spear Wall. To avoid any of the spears getting broken during shipping, I am thinking of leaving them unattached from the figure. The collector can use crazy glue to attach the shield and hand with the spear.
Today I was going through the figures and trimming any flash that I found. I set some of them up to fight a small battle with some Prikaz Danes. I mixed in a few Publius Saxons (blue guys) too.
The other day I stumbled across these vintage Playmobil Gauls. They are sets 7923 & 7924. They are hard to find and usually are expensive if you do find them. I got lucky to get both of these sets for $20.00.
The Gaul Leader 7923
The Gaul Warriors 7924
I wish Playmobil had expanded on this theme. Most Playmobil collectors had to make their own Gauls to fight against the Romans. These figures will be joining Hannibal’s Army…
Don’t forget about the Midwest Toy Soldier Show. It will start in about 25 days. It is one of the best shows around. Plenty of plastic and metal figures. I will be there selling my new miniatures, toys from my own collection, and LOD & Barzso products.
