March News

Hi all! Here is some quick news.


 Ok so I am sitting here typing this email and waiting for yet another Nor’easter to hit. New England fun I guess. I am just back from Cold Wars in PA. Had a good show and met up with a lot of customers. I wasn’t able to get any gaming in but did check many of them out.  This week March 25th I will be at the Wings and Wheels show in Chicopee. This is a great little show in Western, MA packed with model and dioramas on display, model contests and dozens of dealer tables.
Please note there is no NETSS show scheduled in April. The Crowne Plaza is going through renovations. I have been unable to find a suitable location.  I will keep people posted and if I can pust the show of and find a place we will have one. Otherwise we will hopefully get back on schedule for October.  
 
Metal Report. The new Collectors Showcase sets and figures are in. Vietnam Hueys, Russian Napoleonic Cavalry and the re-made LAH Barracks. Most King and Country releases have arrived. The New First Legion Romans, Tiger Tank and Mounted Mamluk’s have arrived. New JJD has been added to the website.

A Massive 1/32 Scale game we played at the Shop

We had a small Historical Games Day in the shop on Saturday. About 20 gamers stopped by. I set up a massive Sudan Campaign Game. I have had a couple thousand Armies in plastic sitting in plastic bins for years. I also had a fair amount of nice terrain that I wanted to keep for myself. So over a few years I accumulated the items and was dying to set them up! I have had this set up in mind for a couple of years. I topped it of with a Trophy Nile River boat. We had about 500 figures on the table and used a simple set of rules “Trench Wars” which we sell in the store for $20.00.

Six of us played the game and we had a blast. Although the Boat contingent made it into the walled the city the lads that were to be relieved encountered some tough opposition. If I had not given the Mahdis a Gatling gun and gave it to the British instead and maybe swapped a cannon the outcome would have been different.

Sadly the Irish Guards and the decimated Highlanders were left for dead by their British Scots Guard, King’s Royal Rifles and Navy brethren!

Hi all! Here is some quick news.
We all have football fever around here lately. Good Luck Patriots, Super Bowl bound again! We are still busy sorting out collections. Last week we added a bunch of retired W.Britains Napoleonics and a collection of US Marines and Naval figures from several makers. The Napoleonics have been listed and  the Marines not yet. I am still playing around wit  
h the the email format, seems like some people where not able to see it all at a quick glance. Feedback is always welcome. 2018 is the year our website will get a facelift. So expect some changes.  We are also entering our 20th Year of business!  
 
This Saturday (1/27) we are hosting a historical Gaming Event in the store beginning at 10Am. Rich Claydon has scheduled a few games and I plan on running a 1/32 Scale Sudan 1880’s game using Armies in Plastic figures and Trench Wars rules. Stop by and check it out.  
 
This week we received a big JG Minitures restock. John Gittens continues to turn out great scenic items for your toy soldier displays. His items continue to change and improve. The trees and the 30″x 12″ terrain mats are very popular. LINK: JGM

NEW ROMANS…..LINK: LEGIO XXX ULPIA Victrix!
We are pleased to present the latest addition to our Glory of Rome product range, Legio XXX Ulpia Victrix!    The Imperial Roman legions were the backbone of the Roman army constantly engaged across the Empire both defending and expanding her far flung borders in a wide variety of geography and climates.   Legio XXX is our first foray into presenting the Legions of Rome as they would have appeared in colder climates as well as our first release featuring the heavier armored legions such as those engaged in the Dacian Wars.   The Legion was initially formed in 100 AD by Emperor Trajan to serve in the Dacian Wars and was otherwise known as “Trajan’s Victorious Thirtieth Legion”, a moniker they deservedly earned in the Dacian Wars.   As their symbols were tied to the God Neptune, we have presented them here with fish adorning their blue shields, a striking difference from our previous releases for the series.   The Legion was in service across various parts of the Empire up to its final disbandment in the early 5th Century with the collapse of the Rhine frontier.   We sincerely hope you enjoy this wonderful addition to our Glory of Rome figure range!

New December releases….Wow what a great selection of World War II figures!

The Long Island Show on 11/18.

What a trip we had. Joe “Suspenders” and I ventured out Friday morning the 17th. We got down to West Haven, Ct and poof! My transmission went in my truck. So what is a guy to do?

After some heavy thinking I sent Joe home in a tow truck with my truck courtesy of AAA. I took Uber to Uhaul. I grabbed a box truck with a hitch and heading back to the rest stop to fetch my trailer. I hitched up and made it down to the Freeport, NY at 8:15PM. After a 4 hour delay I got some help unloading and got it all in before they closed the doors.

I cut a few corners and got it all set up for the show opening at 9AM. Thanks for all of you that showed up and helped me offset some expenses! I came really close to turning around that day.
