I Need Your Votes

Fife & Drum Miniatures: American Militia. (click pix to enlarge)

There is currently a poll being conducted on TMP this week to choose the Best Historical Miniatures Range for the year 2011. One of the ranges under consideration is my own Fife & Drum Miniatures range of AWI figures.

There is also a similar poll to select the Best Historical Figure and apparently the Fife & Drum militia officer (A1) has made the final round of voting:

Best Figure Poll on TMP

I haven't been able to publicize the Fife & Drum range in the wargame magazine press because advertising is very expensive and I would rather invest the money in new figures. So Fife & Drum Miniatures have depended on word of mouth advertising and the promotions that I have been able to do on my own blog, my Fife & Drum blog and on TMP. As a result, my range may not be as well known as many of the long standing ranges that are on the same list.

I need to conduct a quick "get out the vote campaign" in order to get enough votes to survive the preliminary round and move into the voting in the final round. So I am asking for your help and for your votes for the Fife & Drum Miniatures range. 

If you have purchased Fife & Drum Miniatures, or if you simply have admired the look and style of the figures, then please click on the link provided above, and when you get to the poll, then scroll down the list until you see the name Fife & Drum Miniatures and click on the box next to its name. Now you can vote for up to five different figure ranges, but I would recommend voting for just one name so as not to dilute your vote.

I would be very honored to receive your vote and hope that you can help me out.

Thank you in advance,

Der Alte Fritz


  1. I had vote for you my friend!.


  2. Done!

    While I have been able to resist the call of the AWI, your miniatures line is well cast and sculpted, and really brought alive by your painting.

    I hope to see more new products and more battles in the new year!

  3. Done and gladly so, I must confess I have not seen much of your line but I will certainly be making an effort to keep up to date with your progress. They are very well done.

    Wish you all the luck, you deserve it.
    Happy new Year.

  4. Already done. Good to see you so high on the poll.

  5. Thank you all. As of noon on New Years Day, the Fife and Drum range has 85 votes and Perry Napoleonics has 87 votes. So we are only two votes shy of taking the lead in the first round and it appears that we will end up in the top five of the first round heat. Thank you very much for your support.
