Well, I went down to the Enfilade Convention in Olympia, Washington in
May in order to meet Guy Bowers. He's the editor for Wargames,
Soldiers and Strategy magazine. I played in his samurai game based on
the ruleset Muskets and Tomahawks. It was a thoroughly enjoyable
experience. As a bonus, I got to see in the flesh our figures painted by
Einar Olafson painting services. Boy are they amazing! You can see
them in Issue 67 of the magazine and soon in our galleries. There was
also a small review of our figures in that issue.
Soon there will be some new sets! The fighting samurai with yari are
nearing completion as is the newest horse model and horse archer. I'm
hoping to post some WIP photos shortly. Visit soon to see these

Sohei (SA-035) are back in stock! New packs added to the range;
Ikko-Ikki at Ease (SAM-130) and Samurai Horse Archer #2 (SAM-057)
are in stock! I haven't had a chance to photograph the Ikko-Ikki yet so
only a green is up but that will change soon.
You may have noticed the new code "SAM", we have decided to rejig
the pack sizes and to modify our prices. Some prices will go down but
most will be going up. This is our first price adjustment in many years
but it will mean we'll be able to continue to make and sell the range.
In the works are three other packs. One is of Samurai fighting with
spears; we ran into a production issue with one of the poses but
hopefully that will be sorted out soon. The next two are of Ronin and
Ninja! I should be picking those up from the sculptor this week and
photos will follow. There will be additional news items in the coming

The latest metal masters are in for the Ronin, Ninja, reworked Samurai
and new spears. I'll sort out the best figs and send them off to be
cast. I'll post photos as soon as I can. ON a side note I am busy
preparing to put on some participation games at the the Trumpeter
Salute Convention in Burnaby, BC on April 4, 5, 6. You can check out
my organizing thread at the Lead Adventure Forum.

SA-045 is currently out of stock and is going for remolding. Some of
the figures may be sold separately while quantities last. It may be a
few weeks before I can get to that however.
September 8, 2014
A little bit of updating to current stock levels. Ronin masters have been
tweaked and will be sent to the casters this week. Reorder of some out
of stock items will happen at the same time. Newest figs have been
commissioned. They will be Samurai firing teppo for the next Japanese
pack. I make that distinction because we're going to release a small but
exciting range of European figs. Details as progress is made will be
