Princess Viktoria and Friends

A wonderful range from Hinterland miniatures received some more additions last month.  If you aren't aware of it, here is the intro blurb from the website:

On 22 October 1909 Princess Viktoria-Luise of Germany received her commission as Colonel-in-Chief in the 2nd Leib Hussaren regiment.  The 28mm-scaled miniatures available on this site are intended to represent a fictitious unit of female Hussars, serving at the end of the 19th Century, up to World War I.  Although these miniatures wear the famous Death's Head Hussar insignia on the busby, they could be painted to represent a variety of Hussar regiments.  I hope you enjoy these products.

Have a look at the great range here (all pics from this site, not mine - unfortunately!)

If you go to the customer gallery section, you'll see these great VSF style conversions by Froggy from the Lead Adventure Forum - he has added breathing tubes for the harsh conditions on Mars (maybe even Venus?)
Then delving further into the www, I found that Froggy had gone further, making this Martian Cavalrygirl (note she is even riding sidesaddle)

Thanks to Der Feldmarshall for the heads-up on this figure range!

Ironclad Tunneling Machine

Egad! News from the front and that smart chappie at the Kings Sleep blogging site has spotted a dastardly infernal machine at the Newark Little Wars show designed by those clever chappies at Ironclad industries. Here is one of the chronomatic images taken by the Kings fellah...



Seems the wallahs have had a few teething problems getting it into production (probably some engineer been on the sauce again, give 'em a good thrashing I say!) but the Sleep chappie reckons it'll be in production as soon as next week. Harrumph! Now one will have to worry of that rumbling is my tum after some mutton and port or the bally Froggies tunneling under the Channel!
