So, with exactly two weeks to go until the doors to Salute are thrown open, it’s high time we set up our Salute releases page for this year. This page is where you’ll find the definitive list of confirmed releases at the show, including prices and codes. Nothing gets added to this page unless we’re certain that we’ll have on the day. The page will sit at the top of the blog until the 14th so it’s easily accessible. Some of the photos will be of unpainted or undercoated models, but as they get painted I’ll do my best to update them. This year we are a little behind with this page, so expect new items to be added at quite a rate.
Although we’ll have everything here available at the show, we’ll stagger the addition of the releases onto the website – that is simply to avoid us being flooded with a huge pile of orders for the new items. We’d rather regulate the flow of new stuff – that way we avoid getting behind on orders, which no-one wants. As we did last year, we’ve put the intended website release date to each range.
We’re happy to take advance orders if you’d like to reserve any items, new or existing. You can either e-mail us and send a list to be paid for on the day (cash or card), or you can use the ‘Collect in Person’ shipping option on the website to place an order without paying any postage charges. Please place any orders by Friday 7th April to give us a chance of processing them.

Excellent.
Some news concerning other figures that we’ll be carrying at Salute. In the past we’ve taken a small stock of Angel Barrack’s 6mm SF range to shows, but these have now been sold to CP Models so we’ll no longer have those.
Michael is now concentrating instead on his Crom’s Anvil 15mm fantasy range and we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be taking his range of figures with us to all shows for the foreseeable future. At the moment there are eight figures in the range which you’ll be able to see in one our display cabinets
(Michael is currently painting up a set for us to put on display).
Pontoonier Miniatures has released new 28mm Carib figures and Badger Games has got'em! Feared for stories of cannibalism, head-hunting and human sacrifice, the Caribs were originally the dominant population in the Caribbean Islands to which they gave their name.
These figures are intended to represent the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean Islands from the first contact of Columbus to their general absorption into the new local populations. They will serve as opponents for Spanish Explorers, Colonial Powers in the 15th through 18th Centuries and of course, Pirates!
Additionally, this dress survives up to today in the Islands outlying South and Central America as well as some tribes of the Amazon Jungles. These figures will work for the classic age of late 19th and early 20th Century Amazonian exploration to today. The possibilities are endless.
The first release is made up of command packs and the first of the warriors...20 figures in all. Subsequent packs will include warriors with blowguns, firearms, civilians and casualties. Leader types come with socket wrists and hands with various weapons for conversion.
Watch this space for more announcements in this fantastic range!
