July 23rd

Greetings! Well I am finally back from Historicon and am starting to get back to
 the swing of things! We got the trailer unloaded and have begun the sorting and
 re-stocking. . The Convention was a success, however the drive home was a disaster.
The 500 mile trip up route 95 was a nightmare. Traffic, construction, bridge delays,
bad drivers, etc. added 3 plus hours to the trip. We rolled into the driveway at
 4:30AM on Monday morning. My father made it back from the Michigan show and picked
up some great stuff at an auction.
We will be adding a pile of Imperial Productions and some King and Country to our
Rare and Retired section today. Some of the items from the auction will be listed
on our site, sold on ebay or just on display in the shop.

Prereleases provide you with the earliest possible opportunity to play with the newest cards in Magic. Prereleases are enjoyable casual events that encourage fun over competition.

Prereleases are Sealed Deck format events, where players are given Prerelease Packs and time to construct a 40-card minimum deck.

Prerelease Packs make deck-building more exciting with the inclusion of  a specialized, “seeded” booster packs and five regular booster packs that let players choose a focus for their deck.

John Jenkins Designs July Releases


THE GREAT WAR 1914-1918

GWB-07  Everyone should now be familiar with the Mark V tank. For those collectors who cannot make their mind up whether to buy the Male or the Female tank….  Now their choice will be a little easier with the third variant, the Composite Mark V tank.

GWB-24 Please note that these figures are not attached to the bases. This means thet can be displayed on the models, without the bases, or alongside other figures with the bases.

GWF23  Another set of French Infantry returning from their time at the front lines. Next month there will be a preview of the next 6 French Infantry figures, which will build on this theme.


 BGC-18 The first set of two figures designed to be pushing or pulling an allied plane into cover or out onto the airfield to prepare for take-off. There will be a second set of two figures also pushing.

BGC-20 A chaplain figure, ideal to add to the airfield display, waits with the flight roster to help any returned wounded pilots.


 BJ-11 – A sergeant with his halberd levelled horizontally, probably with the intention of straightening out, or holding fast the British line, which historically broke and ran at Culloden.


PBART-04 Two British Artillery crew figures Loading. These can either be used for the Peninsular War, for Waterloo, or for the War Of 1812.

There are still 4-5 more British Artillery crew figures on the Workbench.
