Sorry about that Bob. He is coming out with a version that has the tridents being wielded instead of the rifles.

Should be having them along in a few weeks

Ah, that's evocative.

But he grew old—
This knight so bold—
And o’er his heart a shadow—
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado.

Excellent quoted piece. I agree though. He is a lovely miniature, and would make a great character or just as a painting project.

The old knight, from The Frost range, is also an excellent example of such a figure

The old knight is more Don Quixote, while (at least for me) the questing knight looks serious and committed. He also looks older than the typical knight mini, which is why I thought of the Eldorado poem. Still, Don Quixote has his place.

Cervantes on his galley sets the sword back in the sheath
(Don John of Austria rides homeward with a wreath.)
And he sees across a weary land a straggling road in Spain,
Up which a lean and foolish knight forever rides in vain,
And he smiles, but not as Sultans smile, and settles back the blade....
(But Don John of Austria rides home from the Crusade.)

Lepanto by G. K. Chesterton

{At the Battle of Lepanto, Miguel de Cervantes commanded a small boat intended for boarding actions and was badly wounded, permanently losing the use of his left arm. However, Don John of Austria approved four pay increases for Cervantes, so his merits as a officer and soldier were appreciated.}

And if I may suggest, read the following verse out loud. Only when poems are read aloud can one hear the cadence the poet intended.

Strong gongs groaning as the guns boom far,
Don John of Austria is going to the war,
Stiff flags straining in the night-blasts cold
In the gloom black-purple, in the glint old-gold,
Torchlight crimson on the copper kettle-drums,
Then the tuckets, then the trumpets, then the cannon, and he comes.

Per @BrookM's suggestion

Hi guys,

Lord Marcus from two idiots printing service here.

We wanted to solicit the community for ideas and input. Specifically about our website/ webstore
We currently have a large variety of miniature lines and terrain available. We would like to offer even more deals than our usual bulk buy drop-downs.

I was specifically thinking army deals or potentially One-Stop terrain bundles. What price point, does the community think that an army deal or a terrain bundle should be to where it's easy to make the decision to buy?

What other ranges or army deals would you like to see?

Our web store can be found at the link below and we appreciate any input you may give

I tend to buy minis in smaller numbers for skirmish scale gaming purposes, usually only a couple of each type in an army. I don’t know if “sampler” sets are economically possible, but they tend to be more my speed. Well, then and bits. Lots and lots of bits

I've been specifically adding shield packs when possible so that is an option. other bits as it is economically feasible.

“Mattingly, I thought I told you to trim those sideburns! Go hone! You’re off the team for good!”


The armor is really cool, especially on the leader.

That guy on the left (or at least his torso) has kind of a Yul Brynner pharaoh but overdressed look. I wonder how easy a head swap would be.

We have added an option to the catapult troll to offer just the legs/torso bit at a lower price.

For those who have extra troll sized parts and want to convert.

Alright. I better start planning the next order.

You have some WGA kits. What percentage size would these heads need to be printed in to match your historicals, such as the Persians or DA Irish?

Here's a scale shot. I'd say 150% or 175% personally. Also, a primed horse lords guard on foot for anyone interested. Ignore my crap placement of the shield arm and meh priming job.

Hello everyone.



We are still here. We've just held off advertising while we get the order backlog under control.



We've also revamped our cleaning process for orders, and each order that includes resin miniatures going forward will have a printout with safety information.



We appreciate our customers working with us. If you have a current order and are wondering where it is, please message me and I will track things down. We are a two man company and while that should not impede us getting orders out in a timely fashion, we did get inundated and overwhelmed earlier this month (We still have family time to consider, and sundays we consider a day off.)



New pikemen are available in the medbury miniatures line.

My happy place.

Greetings and welcome to this weeks transparency post, where we here at TIPs pull back the curtain and keep you up to date as to goings on here at the "office."

Firstly, we apologize for the lateness of this post. We intended for these to be weekly however time slipped away from us last week.

We will be updating the webstore tomorrow/over the following week with a slew of new miniatures from a variety of sources.

Caballero miniatures is going to have his june releases added to the store.

The siege of pringar kickstarter has delivered, which means new fortress walls (with optional towers that can accomodate trebuchets) and siege equipment for any enterprising attacking force.

BigMrTong has more guards of atlantis out, this time wielding spears/harpoons.

And last but not least, @'ErramirOrlans' and peculiar companions have a slew of new offerings that just got fulfilled from their successful german empire kickstarter.

Regarding orders:

We had a resin machine break down this week. We are currently waiting on a replacement part after requesting warranty service.

FDM orders are trundling along as all of our FDM printers are operational. For non miniatures items, all of our machines now have multi-material upgrade units installed, so if you need something done up in multiple colors send us a private message.

Resin orders are proceeding apace, despite one of our machines being down. We are still catching up on the order queue, and we appreciate everyones patience.

As always, thank you for reading, and if you have ordered lately thank you for your support of our 2-man small business.
