April 7th News!

April 7, 2022

Hobby Bunker Covert Intelligence
 
Here we are again! Another week has flown by and we have lots of new products to touch on below. Dozens of new and restocked Gundam kits from Bandai still cover our shelves. Tamiya piants still seem to elude us. We temporarily pulled the brand "Tamiya" from the website due to the poor fill rate we are getting from our distributors. We still carry them in the store. We have been getting a good supply of Vallejo and Humbrol paints seem to be starting to be available.
Today we received a huge shipment of D&D Fantasy figures (will be out tomorrow) and yesterday we got a pile of Games Workshop.
The John Jenkins Designs are up to order and the Thomas Gunn Miniatures April releases are now in stock. The April King and and Country is up on the site (link below).
 
Russian and Ukranian plastic updates. Right now we have been taken inventories of brands that come from Russia and the Ukraine. Plastic Platoon, Chintoy, Publius, Mars and others and marking our listings as "last ones" taking them off the site or whatever is needed. For now when this stuff is gone it is gone. I have a report that Chintoy and possibly Engineer Basevich may be gone forever. However we have a shipment of Engineer Basevich coming our way through creative shipping. Other brands in 1/72 scale like Zvezda, Red Box, Orion and others will all be drying up too. Mars is going to try and send his goods to us through Poland (fingers crossed). We also have the Hanomak figures on the way from Russia. Fingers crossed the shipment does not get stuck at an airport or border for months.
Some of the model makers in the Ukraine have also informed us they are able to ship to the US.

The New K&C April releases are ready to order!
Here is a think to view and buy: K&C
The new Vietnam Gun Trucks look quite impressive as do the new French Dismounted Dragoons. The new Mummy is a must have!
 
Napoleon's ‘Dragons a Pied’, the ‘Foot Dragoons’. In early 1805, as Napoleon gathered his forces together at Boulogne for a projected invasion of Britain, he decided to dismount several regiments of Dragoons in order to more easily transport them across the English channel. He supposed that these troops would fight on foot after their initial landing until such time as they could capture or requisition sufficient horses to be remounted.
After the French defeat at Trafalgar in October 1805, the invasion was cancelled; however, these ‘Foot Dragoons’ did not have their mounts returned. Instead, they were dispatched to fight on foot in campaigns across Europe and into Austria and Russia.
They did however retain their tall brass helmets complete with black horsehair plumes and the traditional, green tunics of French Light Cavalry and Infantry as well as their long dragoon muskets.
To suit their new fighting role, they wore long, black canvas leggings and the regular French Army infantry backpack.
