A Big Box of Shiny (and Sugar Plum)

Urban Dictionary: shiny - To be good, in a state of being good, to be having a good time. Something that is great, neat, very cool, peachy keen.

Yep, I think that sums up this box of goodness that I received from Empress Miniatures yesterday. You may recall one of the perks of supporting their Devil Dogs Kickstarter was 20% off their existing moderns range. I did my best not to max the credit card but couldn't resist some modern Brits, US army and insurgents, as well as an ex-Imprint Stryker and LAV-25. I've only had a quick look, but these miniatures are absolutely shiny! I promised myself that would be it, but they just sent an email saying the offer is extended to include the recently purchased Red Star Miniatures range. Damn...

Sugar Plum


  1. Like the Gromit of the day. As for Empress miniatures they do some very fine mini's I maxed out on their Zulu war figures at Salute

  2. I like Empress Miniatures' Zulu War line well enough that I sold off my other 25mm Brits and bought a bunch of these to replace them. The other Brits were already painted, based, and done. So I essentially started over for the beauty of the Empress figures.
