The Latest News!!! 02/21/2022 ~ Warhorse Miniatures Compagnies Franches de la Marine set, Vintage Britain Task Force Set, and more updates.

In today’s post we will talk about some new sets that I am releasing soon. One is not a Medieval set, but it is based on the French & Indian War. I have a few more updates and some hobby news. Before that I found a vintage playset yesterday. So, this is where we will begin.

I stumbled across this Britain Task Force Playset yesterday. I don’t have to many Britain Deetail figures in my collection. Just a few WWII figures. But for less than $30 I couldn’t pass on this. I never saw this playset before. The terrain base is awesome. There are 6 figures and some accessories. The spring-loaded mines are a nice touch. The set has a Nato type theme to it. I will add some modern Britain figures over time to my collection now.

Toy Soldier Collector & Historical Figures Magazine #103

There is an article about Warhorse Miniatures in the Toy Soldier Collector & Historical Figures magazine #103. In the article Jim Clouse discusses my 1st set and my company. Steve Pyle & Scott Walter helped with taking some pictures.

Talking about Steve Pyle, he sent me some pictures of my figures that he had painted. The first set of pictures is one of the Armed Saxon Peasants. The second set is a prototype of some Vikings with a deer.

Two of the latest sets I am working on.

In the coming weeks I will have some new set ready for production. The Saxon Hare Hunter set is $25, and the Saxon Wood Cutter set is $17. There are 4 different Wattle Fence sets. A round fence section with the gate open or closed. Then a straight fence section with the gate open or closed. I will have prices for the fence sets once the pre-orders start.

Viking Raiders Prototypes.

Here are some pictures of Prototypes. I hope to have the Viking Raider camp finished sometime next month. It will be sold in a few different sets. There will be a Raider figure set, a tent set, the Deer set with campfire and then the supply tent with some supplies. Some things can change.

Another Viking prototype with some Conte Saxons.

Here are some pictures of LOD/Barzso Merrymen figures in green with my Vikings & Saxons. They look good with the figures and accessories.

Me busy researching my next move.
The Compagnies Franches de la Marine was the main organization for the defense of New France from 1683 to 1755. In 1683, the Naval Department of France began using the Compagnies to defend the fur trade and the local civilians.

The Compagnies Franches de la Marine will start production in March. The scale of the figures with be the same as Barzso figures or 54mm. The color will be in grey. The 1st set will be of 7 figures in 7 different poses. A second set will be released soon after the 1st set. It will be a firing line of 7 figures in 3 different poses.

That is it for now. More updates to come next month. Thank you for reading.

    • You are welcome. I am trying to fill in some gaps for the Barzso Playset French & Indian War era. I am mainly making Medieval sets for now. But after talking to some Barzso collectors the idea came to make a few figures. But once I got researching everything it quickly grew into two sets. I will have some sets with me at the Midwest Toy Soldier Show and then will start taking orders online afterward. You can contact me at mike@warhorseminiatures.com.
