Jo6 Preview #4 – Ostfront

Posted on July 14th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

As well as our 6mm ranges, we also take the Small Scale Scenery range to Joy of Six. It’s used by some 6mm gamers who prefer their scenery to be nearer to ground scale than figure scale, and we’ve seen it done very effectively. After the bu…

No, wait – there’s more !

Posted on April 12th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

And you thought we’d finished the Salute releases … actually so did we. I shall be brief here, as I still have a thousand and one jobs to do and writing long blog posts isn’t one of them ! Painting display models is, but I suspect tha…

Wheels, Wheels, Wheels #3

Posted on April 11th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

The title of this post is a bit of a misnomer, as there are no wheels visible in the photos below – they’re off being painted separately (which I discovered is so much easier…). We present the last two models in the Centurion series &…

Hat Trick

Dyb Dyb Dyb*

Posted on April 3rd, 2018 under , , . Posted by

We do some odd stuff – along with the flying Victorian battleships, if you haven’t found it yet, there’s a hamster with an assault rifle on our website. So this next item should be relatively normal – after all, it’s at le…

Baby Viking

Following on from the 15mm Thunderbolt Vikings, we’re adding the 6mm versions to our Salute release list. It’s exactly the same list, two versions of the Viking half-track and three trailers. This will be it for 6mm at Salute, unfortunately…

The New Stone Age

Posted on March 26th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Something missing from our Small Scale Range has always been bridges. We started to put this right last year with the Girder Bridges pack, and part of our Salute line-up this year should be this set of four stone bridges. Each is 40mm long (to match th…
