Colonel Bills Wargames Depot: Soon To Be Released Female Fantasy Characters


Colonel Bills Wargames Depot: We're looking for names for newly sculpted figures - Do you have any ideas? Colonel Bill is looking for suitable female names for Vampires and Zombie Cheerleaders (the cheesier or tongue-in-cheek the better!) If you think you've a good idea and care to share, then please do so. 

Two of the as-yet-to-be-released sculpts have names already; The Punk, Sheena Ramone & The Devil, Lucy Feure. Which should give you an idea as to the type of names the Colonel is looking for. Leave a public comment on the blog link, below, or contact the Colonel directly via email (address is given in the linked blog post).  Check the blog here [Obviously the images shown have been altered to make them safe to view. Some of the actual sculpts do show bare breasts and nipples, which we are aware my cause offence.]

Breaking! Games Workshop: Blitz Bowl and Space Marine Adventures Boardgames Announced


Games Workshop announced that they're working on two miniature boardgames: Blitz Bowl and  Space Marine Adventures. These quick and fun boardgames will feature easy to assemble miniatures such as Fantasy Football Players and Space Marines.

Blitz Bowl is a new way to play Blood Bowl. The teams are smaller, the games are faster but the action is just as intense, as each player seeks to distinguish themselves in the eyes of Nuffle*  in the infamous Crush recruitment rituals in fast-paced skirmish games.



Space Marine Adventures allows 1-4 players to join forces and attempt to break into a Necron labyrinth. Choose your hero and use each character’s unique skills to battle various deadly hazards, not least of which are the Necron guardians themselves. The easy-build nature of the kits and intuitive game make it suitable for players aged 8 and over – good for anything from family games nights to a quick adventure for a regular gaming club. While this set is a great introduction to the 41st Millennium, each Space Marine in the set is also a unique and dynamic sculpt, making them great additions to an existing collection, too.

Vexillia: Stock Sale - UK Mirliton Distribution Announcement


Vexillia: Effective immediately. It is with regret that I announce the end of Vexillia's partnership with Mirliton SG of Italy. This is a sad occasion. We first ordered from Mirliton in 2002 and the arrangement has been mutually profitable for nearly 16 years.  Times change however and we could not agree mutually beneficial terms to extend our UK distributorship deal.


We will be selling off our existing UK stock over the coming months.  Our last order from Mirliton arrived just before Christmas and at the moment we hold our usual extensive stocks of the 15 mm ranges, and the 25 mm weapons & spares. We expect sales to be brisk once news spreads so don't put off placing an order.  To help customers check stock levels before ordering all Mirliton shop pages now have links to an online stock list. Codes that go out of stock will be removed from the online shop as soon as possible. Check the webstore here
