More Feb. News!

     Well if you haven’t noticed we’ve had a little snow up here in Boston. We would like to thank all of you that have braved the snow, traffic, parking nightmare and “T” closures to visit us. The City told us that all the snow in Malden Square will be removed next week, this will ease the parking crisis. Currently the garage is only open to monthly parkers.
     This weekend I plan on being in Annandale, VA for Toy soldier show. Let me know ASAP if you want anything brought to the show. With a little luck I will get down there and back and dodge this weeks storms.
     Massive Car Model Collection! We expect to be picking up over 300 car models next week so stay tuned!
     I found this picture on our forum and find myself trying to remember what grass looks like!
 Think Spring. Thanks for the pic Wayne and great King and Country Collection.

Great New Gallipoli coming!

Gallipoli_01 Gallipoli_03

As most of you know 2015 marks many auspicious military anniversaries…One of the most important is the Centenary of the “Gallipoli Campaign” in 1915 when British, French and “ANZAC” (Australian & New Zealand Army Corps) troops stormed the beaches in a combined attempt to capture the Gallipoli Peninsula and destroy the Turkish coastal batteries that controlled the Dardanelles Straits. The date of the landing was 25 April 1915.

By capturing Gallipoli the Allies hoped to begin a “new front” with the Central Powers (Germany, Austria Hungary and Turkey). It was also hoped that a new supply route to Russia could be opened up. And finally…that a major defeat of Turkey, on its home soil, might force her out of the war.

Alas, the best laid plans…often go wrong. However, the bravery and fortitude of the Allied troops, particularly the Aussies and the Kiwis, in the most difficult of circumstances, became legendary.

K&C honours that legacy and the legend with the upcoming release of many new sets of figures and accessories that focus on the ANZACS and their British brothers-in-arms.

Here is just a small taste…Best wishes and happy collecting!

February News! More snow on the Horizon.

 Well the Super Bowl is over, my Patriots won and football is over until August. Now I can concentrate on toy soldiers, painting and getting some wargame’s in!  We are bracing for another winter storm (so it seems every couple of days). Currently I have about 30″ of snow in my backyard. Many of our incoming and out going shipments have been delayed the last 2 weeks so don’t worry your orders will show up as soon as humanly possible. It looks like there will be more shipping delays on Monday.  We have updated the Spring Events “show list” so check it out to see if we will be in your area. Above are the new Battle of the Bulge American “Dug in” sets from King and Country, they are now in stock.
