    In the UK this is going to happen very quickly. Musketeer Miniatures will be going away and the entire range will be available through Footsore Miniatures. The current web-store is only an interim spot and a new web-store is being developed right now.

    In the US we will need to get all of the Masters and produce new molds. This is going to take a little effort as we are looking at over 250 molds. We are in the process of producing the Caliphate Arabs right now; up next are the GNW and the Arthurian Britain range with the Fall of Rome. We hope to have these two ranges fully available in the States by Cold Wars.

    So in summary; UK soon, USA next few months. We are very sorry for the inconvenience but think the customers on both sides of the ocean will benefit greatly from this.

    Ok so you all do know this statement;”The Skraelings, the only Army to consistently beat the Vikings,” is a bit tongue in cheek.

    And yes Allen our Vikings will have horns as is only proper; except the ones that have wings.

    I would love to game Monmouth. It’s less about the total figure count and more about the space required for the endeavor. It’s a battle that ran back and forth all day and was frankly in doubt right up to the end of the day. Washington believed he would need to continue the fight the next day and Howe withdrew during the night or the vicious pounding both sides took would have continued.

    Both sides performed marvelously on the field and I suspect it was the ability of the Continentals to finally stand up and go toe to toe with the British Army all day that convinced Howe that it was pointless to continue to oppose the rebellion. So he  returned to NY never to really sally forth again.

    Reading about the battle, visiting the field, viewing the distances and the movements of the opposing forces. It really needs to be done in a scale of 1 to 10 at a maximum I think. Someday!

    I’ll need to get his name from our mailing list; he was much more interested in the Hill Monument people of the Mississippi River.

     

    And everybody knows Mexican Jack isn’t an expert in “Native” Americans. 🙂

    This URL has 13 pages of War of 1812 uniform “yumminess” and it is well worth a look.

    At Chippawa Scotts regulars would be in the Belgic or Tombstone which is 1814, I seem to recall that the cut-over occurred between 1813-14. I think if you do a few regts in each you are probably good.

    Richard saw your request on Frothers as I don’t usually frequent Napoleonic boards.

    I have loads of information on War of 1812; I’m a big fan of the subset period.

    US Militia are a funny thing; many states have fairly uniformed militias while some of the individual companies are in civies. As you move west the standard hunting smock becomes more prevalent. If there are specifics you are interested in let me know.

    US Regulars start the war in a shako; not really the stovepipe and then move to the tombstone shako.

    Two great search terms in Google Images:

    “war of 1812 state militias”

    “war of 1812 uniforms”

    Lots of great pictures and Google is definitely your friend here.

    In truth neither do we Richard as they are taken from an Angus McBride picture; although we did have a professor of native American studies announce at the last convention that as far as he was concerned they were spot on. He did give us some ideas for additional packs with some additional weapons as well.

    I love this period and have painted many figures over the years starting with Airfix WWI Germans and FFL French in HighSchool in the early 70s and then in 15mm, 6mm, 10mm and 28mm. Footsore Miniatures will be moving into this period in a big way starting in just a few weeks. I anticipate heavily modifying On To Richmond as the rule system so that I can finally play the big battles that this period so richly deserves.

    We are working right now to get the French line Infantry available and hope to make an announcement soonish.

    The Prussian line infantry will be along shortly afterwards.

    I have Lasalle and have read them but haven’t played them. I have Black Powder and have read and played them. They seem to be different games and I’m of the mind that they will both satisfy different requirements on gaming. BP a more generic quicker playing game and Lasalle a little closer feel for the period with a bit more detail. I don’t think you go wrong with either system. Agree with Not Connard; I have Napoleon and couldn’t finish reading them.

    I have some Fife & Drum AWI figures and honestly I love them. They caused me to abandon my 54mm AWI project and I was a big supporter of the F&D Kickstarter. Now that Jim has picked up the Minden range to add to his catalogue I can’t imagine a better tricorn hat range out there.

    I was going to do a year by year “firsts” in aviation. That went crashing down with my Taube build and my Voisin build. Got them almost there but the rigging is deeply discouraging stuff (on the Taube). Much easier to avoid these aircraft (and the whole project). I know, I know, what a slug! mjc

    I was going to Bathtub ( Divisions in place of Corps) the major battles of the Eastern front 1914 with 48 figure battalions. I also am a slug!

    For me it has always been the WSS/GNW and the AWI.

    The WSS/GNW is the essence of warfare change. The old and the new together on the battlefield. Exotic uniforms and units with steady ranks of regular troops. The pike is still present in some quantity and horse is still armored.

    AWI has a special place as the AWI figures from the back of a comic book were my first true wargame figures with Donald Featherstone’s excellent book War Games.  It also has the advantage of colorful uniforms, large battles, small battles, amphibious operations and a range of characters that are all a bit larger then life to me.

    They are 28mm and we should have the web store up and running in sometime this week or next. I am waiting on photographs, I want to ensure you can see the finished product before you buy.

    As I wander the site I am finding suggestions and bug reports all over the place. At least for start up maybe a bord specifically for suggestions and bugs so everything is reported in one central place. It is going to make it much easier for you guys  in the short and long run.

    Hi; my name is Donald Hauser and I have been playing with toy soldiers my entire life. As a young fellow a friend and I would setup elaborate battlefields with Marx plastic soldiers and then throw rocks at them from a distance. About the time I entered 8th grade and might have put toys away a different friend found Donald Featherstones book War Games at the local public library. We’ll I was hooked for life.

    Those first games were played with photocopied pages from the War Games and a pair of armies purchased from the back of a comic book, AWI to be exact and many of those soldiers are still in a box downstairs. When I eventually found Airfix my world exploded. I was painting WWI Germans and French Foreign Legion boxes for the Franco-Prussian War. I was also deforming the Ancient Britians with a candle to make Orcs to fight my Roman Legions, Robin Hood and Sheriffs warriors. Airfix seemed to make everything possible in those halcyon days.

    I almost left the hobby after playing a long, competitive, non-stop, 14 hour game of Napoleons Battles. It was truly terrible.

    Fortunately I didn’t as I am now a co-owner of BAD and Footsore Miniatures and looking to get back to my roots. Making toy soldiers and finally painting to comprehensive armies for the FPW!

    Most of the games I play are fairly simple with loads of toy soldiers as it has always been the spectacle of massed armies of nicely painted toys on a pretty table that keeps me excited.
