Two more weeks to go until the Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show. I will setup as a vendor again. Besides all of my Warhorse resin miniatures, I will also be selling the LOD/Barzso resin toy soldiers. The town of Gettysburg makes a nice weekend getaway. There is so much history to explore. Plus, all the shops to check out too.
Every year the toy shows are a little different. There might be a new release that everyone wants or a rare collectible that a collector is letting go. This year looks promising for a few rare pieces that you could pick up. Thomas, a fellow collector is selling some of his collection. “Expertly painted plastic Indians and cavalry, Saxons, Normans, and Vikings. Scenery pieces, the Conte Cog ship, and more…“. I wonder what the other vendors are bringing.
Here are a few of the latest releases by Publius. The Western figures look like new sculpts, but the some of the medieval figures have been available in metal already. The look really nice. I guess you can find them on eBay.
Next are some new miniatures by Runecraft. They usually have some nicely detailed and unique figures. And like their brother company Publius, you can probably find these on eBay.
Beleriand Toy Soldiers, another company out of Russia has a new set. These Apache Indians look fantastic.
And our last preview from Russia is this set of Vandals by Soldiers of Hanomaka. And like the others you will have to search on eBay, unless you know someone who sells them. Most of these toy soldiers are made out of a flexible rubber type plastic. The scales are usually around 58mm. The big 1/32 or small 1/30, somewhere in between.
In my last post I was talking about the new British Infantry that I am working on. I made two prototypes and then did some tweaking to them. The musket was adjusted and a few other things. I am working on a few reposes of the model and some new models. Next will be a firing line set. One of the new models will be an Officer. He will probably be sold separately or maybe in a small group. I was thinking of making a drummer and maybe another musician. We shall see. The first British sets will be the Marching sets, that will be in May. I might have a few sets at the Gettysburg show. And maybe another Marching set too and some prototypes.
That is, it for now. Thank you for reading and I will see you in Gettysburg.
