Hmmm, I'm afraid Stronghold have been a " buy at shows only " trader with me for the last few years now. Pity, they have some great ranges.

They also do a range of SCW armoured trucks etc.

The letter V;

Valiant Miniatures.

Make plastic multipart late WWII figures. The multipart choice of parts means you could use these for VBCW, leaving out the sten guns and Piats if you're not too particular. i have'nt had any of these in my hand but going by what other people seem to say I would judge them to be similar in size to Raventhorpe.

I think they may be from the same stable as Raventhorpe, Ready To roll and Rapidfire.

One thing I would say about Valiant is that they are a large 20mm. Be careful when adding these to an existing army.

The letter W;

Warrior Miniatures.

They do a WWII range and a SCW range. They are cheap but paint up OK. Unfortunately there are only pics of WWII Russians and the BEST of the SCW range. A word of warning regarding the SCW range, I would recommend the One Piece Casting cavalry but the sculpts of the rest of the range vary tremendously, the ones done by the same sculptor who did the cavalry are not bad but have some strange poses. The worst of the rest are IMHO... terrible! If you are thinking of getting any get samples first of the actual figures you want.

WD Models.

A fine WW1 range of figures, equipment and vehicles. They look very good in the pictures but are on the expensive side. There are items that can be used for VBCW.

White Ensign Models.

Produce and stock a large number of naval items including enamel paints matched to various nationalities naval paints. All sorts of naval accessories etc. Well worth a look for any budding Admirals. The enamels include army colours too.

preview of waterloo 1815 'italian infantry support group' has something to interest people who want both motor cycles and bicycles - head swaps and you'll have some lovely figures!

trying to resist starting VBCW in 1/72 but i'll be getting these anyway for crossfire.
