I am having planned surgery on my foot: some bone removal and two metal pins inserted. I have allowed myself 2 days to clear any orders "on hand" and to clean / oil the lasers with surgery taking place on 19th Feb.
I have been advised that recovery is six weeks and plan to fill my time reading / painting miniatures and designing new kits to prototype when I am mobile again.
Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience I may cause you.
Wargames Soldiers & Strategy January 24, 2024 19:25
Glad to get my hands on Wargames Soldiers & Strategy isse 128 last weekend. A few models from the Charlie Foxtrot portfolio appear in one of the articles: "Georgian House", "3 Storey House" and the "Eglise". Pic 4 shows Guy Bowers (editor) in action at Charlie Foxtrot Models HQ taking the pictures with a beaut of a model by Purple Lion Creations (bottom right). A really good chat with Guy and future projects chatted through at lengh......I am now painting Confederates with a passion. I do wonder if the chaos daemons in the cabinet behind Guy will ever grace the table again. They have not moved for years.
Christmas Closure Dates 2023 December 17, 2023 12:30

Many thanks to my customers and friends who have supported me through the past year. Happy Christmas.
New Release : What a Cowboy Dashboard December 8, 2023 08:16
After getting a few more games in, I drew my own version of the WaC Dashboard. I am aware there are a few examples already on the market but did these for personal use. I have now released the dashboard being very happy with how it came out.
Please note this product has been designed to accept "standard 12mm d6 die"
The unique thing about this is the ability to write notes on the dashboard so you can easily track the status of your characters in the game.
I have "blocked" the action dice together in one slot, making them very easy to pick up in one go with one hand.
Slots for the bonanza tokens are built in for storage. Each dashboard comes complete with 3 Bonanza tokens.
The Dashboard can be bought individually or in a set of 4.

As I assemble and paint all my own models, I cannot comment on his pricing or turnaround but I do like what he has done with the "Terrace" (French Version).Really nice work.
New Release: 28mm 1:56 "French Station" & notice of temporary closure. November 20, 2023 10:01
I must thank Mathieu Tyras from France for his concept sketches and background information which made this model "typically French".
This large kit was due to be launched as a Kickstarter however I will be having an operation on my foot either next month, January or December. My biggest fear was to launch the Kickstarter and not be able to fulfill the pledges as I will be out of action for 6 weeks. The website will be open to browse, read instructions but the checkout, like me, will be temporarily disabled. The exact date of closure is not yet known.

Salute 50 April 23, 2023 18:33
I went to Salute 50 this year to see the "Attack on the Saigon Embassy 1968" table put on by Gringo40's. Ged had the vision, did a lot of research and commissioned me to make the main structure, covered walkway, perimeter walls and planters while Geoff from Purple Lion Creations made the supporting buildings and did the painting and scenics. Tony From Debris of War made the trees and affixed them to my bases. The 3d Printed cars, tuk-tuks and scooters were made by Paul Edwards from Sabotag3d and I slapped the paint on them.
This massive kit will not be on the website. It is purely a showcase piece done for Salute and will go into Ged's private collection. It has been a great experience working and collaborating with good mates who are such talented people.
Here are a few of my favourite pictures. From left to right: Me, Tony, Ged & Geoff.
The table looked so much better with a game in progress with Ged's beautifully painted 'Nam miniatures. Once a game got underway, too many people were around for photographs and once the fight went inside, the buiding was taken apart for multi-level gaming.
