Figarti: Forthcoming Fabulousness!

All of the following are currently available, or very soon will be, from Grey Goose Collectables here in the UK. Just give Clive a call and he'll see you right! I've got my eyes on the Panther and MW's Tiger!

This all new Tiger 1, as commanded by the infamous Michael Wittmann, features oodles of fine detail and expertly rendered weathering to the paintwork. Limited to a production run of just 500 models this little beauty comes complete with photo-etched tools and equipment, hinged commander's hatch, moving gun breech and Figarti's new individual link assembled tank tracks for that additional touch of realism. If it looks anything like as good in real life as it does in the photos then it will be worth every penny of its £145 price tag!

 Happy hunting!

First Legion: The Forgotten Bits!

You'll never guess what landed in my in-tray earlier today. The November newsletter from First Legion which included details of all the new releases mentioned in the previous post as well as two American Revolution personalities that have been featured on the company's Workbench page for some time and a bunch of 'sneak peaks' thrown in for good measure. Read on and enjoy!

First Legion is extremely pleased to present the first of our personality figures of the American Revolution! 

Long previewed on our workbench, we are excited to finally bring you AWI056 General Cornwallis & His Dogs.  

In addition, of course we had to do a Mounted General Washington to lead the Continentals on to victory.  We sincerely hope you enjoy them!

AWI056 General Cornwallis & His Dogs - $179.95
AWI057 General George Washington - $159.95

Following the success of the first two releases in our “vignette” series, the Death of Lannes and French Camp Life, we are pleased to present this preview of the next such vignette for our flagship Napoleon’s Europe product range.   

This time we have selected a moment on the evening before the Battle of Borodino where the Virgin of Smolensk Icon was paraded before the Russian Army to prepare them for the horror that would follow the next morning.    

We hope you like it!

Next, for our Battle of Stalingrad range we have this small preview of the first of our truly ragged winter Germans depicting the very end of the Battle.   

These two figures are doing their best to keep warm and prepare some food cleverly using their MG34 to assist in the process. 

And last but by no means least, we have a preview of the first of our Confederate mounted personalities from our American Civil War range, Generals Lee and Longstreet!

Happy Hunting!

First Legion: New Releases

Yet another feast in store for you now from First Legion including a new paint job for some of the first figures they ever produced. As Matt says himself, if you have the originals then it would be interesting to stand the new ones alongside them and see just how far the company has come in terms of production values. Without further ado I'll let you enjoy the team's latest offerings

Roman Personalities




Battle of Agincourt





 Napoleonic Bavarians
