The Latest News!! 10/13/2022 ~ Columbus Ohio Toy Soldier Show, Toy Soldier Review: Publius Franks and Moors, Warhorse Miniatures Updates!

Columbus Ohio Toy Soldier Show October 16th, 2022

The Columbus Ohio Toy Soldier Show is a few days away. On Sunday October 16th, I will be attending & selling my Warhorse Miniatures, Barzso Playset and other toy soldier products there.

Krampu verus the Warlord…

Here is the Krampus figurine that I had made last year. I will have several Krampuses with me at the show. The fantasy Viking Warlord figure will be available in the near future.

The New “Frontier Raid” set.

I have been working on a new early colonial American set. The set is titled “Frontier Raid”. It depicts settlers reacting to a raid by some Natives or Canadians. Some of the models are new and some have been repurposed from the Saxon raid set. The idea came when a few collectors said they could be used for different settings. I am designing a new French Canadian & Native American Raider set now. The Frontier Raid set is scaled to the 54mm Barzso miniatures. It should be released in a week or so. I am trying to adjust the color to match the Barzso American Militia set.

Saxon Cottage

The new Saxon houses are almost finished. This is the first house, another three being designed. The small cottage should be added to the store in a couple of weeks.

Saxon Potter

I am retooling the Saxon Potter Shop. There is a new model for the Potter. I really like the way he turned out. I am changing a few other things now. I think this set will be ready in a couple of months.

Publius Franks and Moors.

The new Publius sets look really nice. The details are amazing. I like the colors they have used. The only thing I did not like is the scale. They are smaller than some of their past medieval figures. They are a little bigger than the Britain Deetail figures and a little smaller than the Conte figures. The heads are smaller too. A lot of toy soldiers have bigger heads and hands than a sculpture/model of a human. It looks like the new Publius figures are 3d sculpted and not hand sculpted like they used to be. Not that I have a problem with that for obvious reasons. But instead of a toy soldier design, they look like a sculpture design. This is one thing I had a problem with initially, in the beginning of my designs.

The show should be fun. It is one of the last shows of the year. Well, that is it for now. Thank you for reading.

  1. I see that you’re doing some seven years’ war figures, wondering if you will ever do some on the battle of Plassey, I don’t know if you’re into East Indian conflicts or not (or no nothing about their clothing) just a bit curious that’s all

      • “Third Carnatic War” that is name of the war, and the most famous battle are Calcutta and Plassey. as for uniforms i don’t know how to send you some as i have book for that, but i will try

  2. I was at Fort Ligonier today. In the museum they give a brief history of the world around the time of the Seven Years Wars. Part of it was about India. I was thinking of making some Prussians one day also. So, I could extend into what was going on in India one day.
