Asalto a Curupayty

A very interesting article on the Juegos de Historia blog  about the allied bloody assault on the Paraguayan defences at Curupaity during the Paraguayan War. 

Once there are enough figures on the range it will be possible to game the battle.

Empress Now Stocking Kingscarbine Miniatures

Empress Miniatures are now the UK stockist for Kingscarbine Miniatures.

"These excellent figures sculpted by Steve May are full of character and will cover a woefully under-represented conflict. If you fancy something a bit different but fascinating and absorbing then this could well be the range for you!"

Paraguayan War "Kingsstarter"


There's no release date for the Brazilian infantry yet as I decided to have the Line Infantry (Fuzileiros) done first. So, the next packs will be:

-Fusiliers, marching (w/ kepi; barracks cap)
-Fusiliers, skirmishing (w/ kepi; barracks cap)
-Fusiliers Command (2 officers, 2 standard bearers, 2 musicians)

Starting now I'll accept pre-orders for the miniatures as a form of crowdfunding. The miniatures for both armies will be sculpted based on stretch goals and on the amount of pre-orders raised. Basically for every three packs I'll need to raise £2000 for sculpting and production. As soon as that goal is reached the figures will enter the production line. For every £6000 achieved  a mounted command pack will be released (free for pre-orders). If you change your mind you can request a refund. All pre-orders are post free.
