"Virgil, quick, come see...

"Virgil Caine is the name
And I served on the Danville train
'Till Stoneman's cavalry came
And tore up the tracks again

In the winter of '65
We were hungry, just barely alive
By May the 10th, Richmond had fell
It's a time I remember, oh so well

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And the people were singing
They went, "Na, na, la, na, na, na"

Back with my wife in Tennessee
When one day she called to me
Said "Virgil, quick, come see,
There goes the Robert E. Lee!"

Now, I don't mind chopping wood
And I don't care if the money's no good
You take what you need
And you leave the rest
But they should never
Have taken the very best
[...] "
 'The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down', 
The Band (lyrics by Robbie Robertson)

A little tribute to a great song. Not part of any range just a little one-off fun on the side.

The greens have already been sent to the mould maker and caster and will be available through Empress Miniatures together with the previously shown Spartacists.

Temporary stop of direct sales and previews of upcoming sets

We hope everyone is doing well!

We are sorry to inform you that due to some real life commitments (a very time demanding day job involving a lot of travelling, among others), we have to put a temporary stop to direct sales. If everything goes as planned, we will be back at full speed with regular service at May/June 2017.

In the meantime, ALL the sets will stay available through Empress Miniatures.

There are also quite a few new sets in the pipeline:

A set of 'characters' for the German Sailors:
 


And six sets of 'Red Army'/Spartacists for the fightings in 1918/1919:
