Additions to ranges

Old Glory UKPosted by Andy - Old Glory UK 17 Jul, 2017 12:23:59
The Blue Moon 15mm Zulu war range has added both regular and Colonial cavalry in the form of Imperial Dragoons and Lancers .Basuto Native horse and Natal Mounted Police- thse las also having a pack of dismounted men as well.
The Old Glory 25/8 mm Dark Ages range has a new pack - Viking Characters. 3 different figures that don't appear anywhere else in our ranges. so new sculpts.

I also have 3 more packs of the excellent Raven Banner Games 28mm ACW range- they seem to be staff sets and they are really nice ! I'm awaiting photos and precise descriptions and prices from Raven Banner before these go up on the site.

I have not so far received the new Blue Moon Boxer Rising range from the US supplier- despite having ordered some .However I have re-ordered and added more to the list for my next shipment so I will have all of this range in time.
Our next show is Claymore on August 5th in Edinburgh doubtless I'll see some of you there.

Old Glory UK -Shows for the rest of 2017

Old Glory UKPosted by Andy - Old Glory UK 27 Jun, 2017 08:34:10

I thought I'd better bring interested chaps up to speed on Old Glory UK's show
dates for the rest of 2017.
We have 3 more events in the rest of this year.
Next up for us will be Claymore! in Edinburgh of Saturday August 5th at the
Usual venue of Edinburgh College ,Granton Campus West Granton Rd Edinburgh EH51QE.
Always a good event and well worth travelling to.We will have all of our usual show
stock there . Hopefully we will also have some new Blue Moon 15mm releases
in several different ranges. Mad Anthony Wayne, Xulu war and maybe Boxer Rising.

After that there will be The Other Partizan at the George Stephanson Hall, Newark
Showground. on August 20th.
Now the change in venue really has sparked this show up. No more dark dreary Kelham
with miners lamps on your head.! No more tortuous unload with everybody and his
brother getting in the way.
No that is all gone. Now we have a light airy hall where you CAN see your hand in front
of your face and you CAN get your gear in easily. The catering is, by show standards pretty good too.
So yes we shall be there again with all of our usual show stock


Our final show of the Year will be the Derby Worlds at the new venue of Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire- pretty far away from Derby really and to all intents and purposes
a new show. on the 7th and 8th October.
The new venue looks good in the promo video- similar to Newark but perhaps a bit shinier
and after a bit of a false start the new organisers seem to be getting it together.

NOW PLEASE READ THIS. WE ARE ONLY TAKING 15MM and possibly 10mm ranges to this event.
as we have only booked a 12 foot stand due to the high price of stands at an
unproven event.
So we will have with us all the Blue Moon 15mm and all Command Decision WW2
and Modern.and very possibly all of the 10mm Gunpowder ranges.
All other ranges will need to be pre-ordered. as we will not be carrying
25/8mm or 40mm with us at this event.
This restriction ONLY applies to this show

Of course pre-orders are welcome for all 3 shows and as ever the
"6for5" deal will be in operation.



New 28mm from Drabant.

Old Glory UKPosted by Andy - Old Glory UK 14 Jun, 2017 17:04:02
I've received a re-supply from Drabant in Russia including 4 new packs of fantastic additions to the Dark Ages range
The Normans get a new personality- one Ivo Talifer on a reraring horse.
The first pack of a new range of picts is now available.

the photo shows pack D2806 Early Slav Infantry.


A pack of Pecheneg Horse archer has also been added.
The eagle eyed amongst you may search in vain for a 4th new code but there isn't one !
The 4th pack is a complete new set of 4 figures for code A2802 Saxon Fyrd. These completely new models replace the old rather static set

Some excellent NEW 28mm ACW models from Raven Banner Games have been added to the site I had some of the new US infanry in Greatcoats at Salute but sold out withing the first 2 hours and have only recently got them back in stock.
The Rave Banner ACW range now stands at 3 different vignette packs plus 8 different Infantry packs. A good beginning and a fine range.

Old Glory UKPosted by Andy - Old Glory UK 24 May, 2017 14:06:57
Now regular readers will know that"officially" Old Glory UK don't go to this show .However equally I have been going to it for the past 6 or seven years with my Wargames Group and putting on demo games . This year is no exception.
The game this year will be a 40mm Wars of the Roses encounter with the majority of the figures coming from the Romanoff miniatures Wars of the Roses and Late Medieval range

As always you can order stuff to pick up at the show- save yourself a few quid on postage- Simply email me direct on

and I'll sort it out and let you know prices and so forth.


So this is where we will be on June 10th . It should ,as always, be a good fun day.

Carronade- Falkirk Sat. May 13th

Old Glory UKPosted by Andy - Old Glory UK 08 May, 2017 13:50:56
Graeme High School
Callendar Rd.
Falkirk
FK1 1SY

Yes of course we will be there.
I've liked this show since it first appeared almost a decade ago- no quite but almost . Doesn't time fly ?
So a good little show - though not so little now and one of the best "middle-sized" events on the circuit.
We will be taking all of our usual show stock and as always the "6 for 5" deal will be in operation
Pre orders welcome but don't leave it too late.
See you in Scotland

Salute 2017 11 days and counting.

Old Glory UKPosted by Andy - Old Glory UK 13 Apr, 2017 11:06:26
As it write this it is a mere 11 days- actually a bit less- to SALUTE2017.
We are of coursE there on stand TB12.
Yes we will have lots of stock- all that we can stuff -legally- into our van.
Pre-orders are now mostly packed and ready for those chaps who took pains to order what they needed. A large shipement is due from the USA in the next few days which should plug most of the gaps in the ranges we bring..
You can still pre-order but orders will be taken from stock in hand as it is now far too late to get stuff from the USA- but we still have about 200,000 soldiers in stock.

See you at Ex-cel.
