I hope everyone had a nice time yesterday on Christmas. Today I am writing a quick post about some new sets coming out soon. Most are from Russia and one is a preview from me. Let the Wild Hunt begin…
We start with Igor Basevich announcing their next two Three Musketeer’s themed sets, the King Musketeers & the Cardinal Guards.They will be made out of plastic and probably in a few different colors. The scale is 1/32. I will pick these up when I see them.
Moscow Creative Association Seven Hills presents a new set. Stone Age-Hunting. This set contains four miniatures of hunters and one figure of a cave bear. The material is rubber-plastic. The bear figure will be made of soft plastic or resin. The pre-order of the set starts after the new year. Stay tuned for group updates.
Warhansa sent me a message about their first set for 2022. A Great swords set, Landsknechts / Dopplesoldners. They will be in 1/32 scale in rubbery resin.
The last preview is from me. I am calling this the “Pig Farm”. The set is almost completed. I am redesigning part of it. Hopefully I will have this released in February. It could sooner.
That is it for now. Keep Safe & Prepared. Thank you for reading.
I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Joyful Yuletide Season. I have been spending the last few weeks making sets from my house. Plus doing some tests with prototypes and trying different resin mixtures.For the time being all the figures that are being made will be in a light grey color.

We are still working on a color. Might be beige or a wine color.
Besides all the set we talked about we are still working on the craftsmen shops. I am redesigning the Blacksmith figure and testing some things out. Next year will we have the houses & shop available. That is it for now. Thank you for reading.

Today we remember the Brave American, British, Canadian & other allied Soldiers that gave their lives when they stormed the beaches of Normandy to fight the forces of Germany.
The Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.
Today I am doing a quick post about some new products from Warhansa and then a figure from Publius. The first Warhansa set is called “Friends of Robin Hood”. There are 6 figures included. It looks like we get Little John, Friar Tuck, a Merry man with a pitchfork, Will Scarlet, a Jester and Maid Mirian.
The figures look really sharp. List as 1/32 in scale. They are nice size and will blend very well with Conte & Barzso medieval figures. The poses are good too. Weapons are to scale. I give them an A. The only figure I don’t need is the Jester. But he has his use in a court some where…
The other set is called “Forest Camp”. It has a camp fire and an animal spit roasting above it. Plus some barrels and chest. Some much needed accessories that we need a ton more for displays.
Here is a new figure by Publius. He is a mounted Native American or a Plains Indian on a horse. This figure is very nice. Again 1/32 in scale. He is a little bigger than the TSSD figures. But will make a nice leader for you figures.
I found these trees in a train hobby shop last month. I purchase about all that they had. Not bad for about $3.00 a piece.
I am still working on some new figures. We are testing different designs and resins. I hope to be able to share something new in a few weeks. That is it for now. Thank you for reading.
TodayI have a quick update about a few things that were announced this week from around the globe.We start with some news from Conte Collectibles Toy Soldiers.
“Roman Set #1 now expected to reach us by mid May. Poses/mold masters for Roman Set #2 have been sent to the factory. Barbarian Set #1 poses/mold masters being finalized. Likely to send them to factory next week. We will most likely start accepting pre-orders for Roman set 1 around May 5th.“
Chintoys has a new set coming out in May. Set 025 Teutonic Knights. The look nice and come in different colors. There are 8 poses and the set is in 1/32 in scale.
Hanomak has added another pose to the set their creating. This figure appears to be a sniper.
Next we have some news from Plastic Platoon. They are releasing a Gatling Gun settheir Plains Indian War theme.
Also Plastic Platoon is ready to release a British Royal artillery set from American Revolutionera.
“Dear friends! We are ready to announce the pre-order of set No.1 Division SS “Das Reich”. Scale 1:32. The set includes 6 figures – separate bags for the machine gunner. The color is gray. The set will be cast in two materials: 1.Soft plastic, cost 2450 rubles 2. Polyuret (rubber plastic) cost 2950 rubles.”
Now we will move to Warhansa. Radion sent me a messageabout some updates. First is new color for the English Knights.
Warhansa also is working on another fantasy set. This time the figures look like Predator, Rambo and Schwarzenegger. The figures are 1/32 in scale.
Sunday April 18th is almost here. The Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show is about a week away. This will be the 1st major toy soldier show in over a year on the East coast. Gettysburg is a perfect place for a show. It has history and charm.There are plenty of same shops in the town also. A great place to get away for a weekend or a week. For more information about the show look at these two links. The first is from my page, The Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show 2021.The second link is from the promoters, http://www.mwtoysoldier.com/.
I was surprised on the size of the box and playset. The set includes 24 figures, 3 horses, 3 teepees, 2 trees, 1 wagon, and some camp accessories.Here are some pictures of the accessories for the set.Most of the accessories are original products that were made by Gulliver.
There are 12 Cowboys & Miner figures and 2 horses.
You can switch the mounted figures from the horses to the wagon.
One the bottom of the figures they are labeled Gulliver. This is good. Collectors will know the difference in the future if they find these figures loose in the wild.
There are 12 Native American Indian figures and 1 horse. Most of these figures depict life at the in a camp setting.
The last figure below was a lot smaller than most of the other figures. I don’t know if these was an original Atlantic figure.
Most of the figures are about 56mm or so. They are smaller than the original Atlantic figures. Most of the Atlantic figures were 60mm. I have a few pictures below for comparison to see how the match up with either Atlantic or some other brands.
Here are 5 figures below show the scale comparison. In order starting from the left is a Conte Alamo figure, Gulliver Cowboy, Barzso Merryman, Gulliver Native Indian and 54mm Marx Viking.You can see the different sizes with the Gulliver figures. I will try to find some Atlantic Indians in the future for comparison.
Some original Atlantic Outlaws in brown compared to the Gulliver figures below.
Here is 1/32 Barzso Merry Man figure below with the Gulliver tree. They look really nice together.
