Phoenix Models - risen from the flames so to speak......


Well, I just picked up a couple of Phoenix Miniatures larger scale 'Bolgs'. Two of the A17 Female Bolg to be exact. I then did a search and found that Forty-Third Limited have re-released the full range along with a lot of the 1/43 railway items. I remember well the excitement of seeing this range develop back in the day although it was mostly out of my price range. I've since got quite a few and they really are most excellent sculpts by the late Tim Richards.

 Phoenix Models Developments themselves are still going strong of course although they concentrate of doll's house items these days although still superbly sculpted ones. There's a little bit of their history here.

 



Also, for those into the old 'Follies' range, they are available here!

Tell them I sent you!

Well, John at Black Tree Design emailed me to say they've finally launched their pirate range via Kickstarter. I posted about these a few years back here


There are various groups to back however the complete set is the best value of course!



Tell them I sent you if you get the chance, someone's got to think my blog is useful!!

Lots more of my pirate posts here.

Peter Firmin RIP.


It is with great regret I heard that Peter died today. He leaves behind his wife Joan and six daughters along with a multitude of people who have been enthralled by his work over the past 6 decades. Another great one gone.



So sad.
