End of March News!

March 30, 2022

Hello world! Dozens of new and restocked Gundam kits from Bandai now cover our shelves. They have been turning out lots of new and reissued kits and think we will be seeing a steady supply. 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.
 
Last week we updated our "Collectors Showcase" inventory. We have marked many of them as "Last Ones." Although they claim they will have some new sets out later in the year it has been over 2 years since they have released anything.
TCS LINK: COLLSHOW
We have also added the John Jenkins Designs and Thomas Gunn Miniatures April releases. See links below..King and and Country was closed this week for inventories. We expect to hear about the new releases on Monday.
 
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.
We just received a massive restock of Games Workshop including dozens of boxed sets and 100's of Citadel Paints! Stop by....stock is moving fast.

Our Bolt Action Day at Hobby Bunker on
´╗┐March 26th, 2022
We had a great turnout for our Tournament this past Saturday. Jim from New York took the day with Best General. He beat me in the first round.
 
 
 
Here is his troops all dug in.
 
 
 
 
Chris took me in a close match with his British Paras and Commandos.
 
 
 
I played pretty risky with my M8 Greyhound. I came close to popping Jim's M8 in round 2 and I got this Armoured Car in the first round of my second game. My opponent Joe came up from Cape Cod.
 
 
 
 
Ben Rioux won best painted army with his French Resistance Army.
 
 
 
Charles was our youngest player at age 15. He did great along with a few other novices. We hope to set this up again and make in a once a month event.
