Wow, I can't believe it is May already! This Saturday we have another Bolt Action game day and a Paint and take (more info below). Our big sea freight shipment of Paragon Scenics finally arrived. We have shipped out most of the pre-orders and have been getting the 120 cartons squared away. It arrived late last Friday afternoon so Joe and I did not get down to Gettysburg until 11PM. On Saturday we walked and toured most of all the battlefield. It was a beautiful day and a great experience. We hit a few shops and breweries as well. The show was well attended and we had a great show. Thanks to all that made the trip.
 
 
Pictured above is the complete 14th Brooklyn Infantry from John Jenkins Designs. John staggers his releases with one or 2 a month so the series takes about a year before everything is made. This makes it affordable but also can be harder to collect if something sells out. If you are interested in a complete series we can reserve one of each for you so you do not miss out. You can pre-order online or call/email. This brand is 1/30 scale.
 
Speaking of pre-orders. If you click "pre-order" then we will automatically reserve the item for you. Sometimes the item will be marked as sold out or "out of stock." This just means all of our order has been pre-sold and you will get one if you "pre-ordered." Also if you do not plan on ordering do not pre-order. We waste a lot of time following up on pre-orders for some that don't respond, cancel or already purchased. If you pre-order we will notify you when it comes in. If something will be out the same month or within days just actually place the order rather than pre-order this will save us both time and we can get it too you quicker.

  • Future series announcement...
 
The Gempei War which took place between 1180 and 1185 was a national civil war between the Taira and Minamoto clans during the late Heian period of Japan. It resulted in the downfall of the Taira and the establishment of the Kamakura shogunate under Minamoto no Yoritomo, who appointed himself as Shogun in 1192, governing Japan as a military dictator from the eastern city of Kamakura.
 
The Gempei & Taira were fierce rivals, both were ancient families, descended from royalty.
 
 
 
The New May releases have been announced. This includes additional poses for French Dragoons, Valeria Messalina--a Roman Empress, more ACW 83rd Pennsylvania Regt, new WWII Germans and Mexican Senoritas!
