Griffin Moulds has shipped my casting order for all of the new products that went into production and the shipment is expected to arrive early next week (the week starting Monday January 21, 2019).

The new products include French Cavalrie in Bearskins, Austrian Horse Grenadiers, French infantry grenadiers in bearskins, a French kettle drummer, a Prussian mounted postman, and two personality figures (French generals Broglie and Chevert).

Visit the Fife and Drum Miniatures Forum
I would encourage everyone to visit and join the Fife and Drum Miniatures forum where you get all of the news ahead of everyone else. We also have extensive conversations about all things germane to the study of 18th Century military history. So if you have historical questions, then our forum is the place to go.

We also post lots and lots of pictures of painted Minden SYW, Fife & Drum AWI and Crann Tara WAS miniatures.


  1. Well, d**n. Looks like I'll 'need' some of those French personality figures at some point. You sure do make it difficult to lay off new figure purchases!

    Best Regards,


  2. These look great, Jim. Could I please ask what figures are in the French & Austrian mounted command packs - is it officer, flag & musician? I cannot see pics of standard bearers above but I recall these did appear in the post on the forum. Cheers, Rohan.

  3. Each cavalry command pack has an officer, standard bearer and a musician. I will Pix of the actual castings when they arrive.

  4. Many thanks, Jim. I will look forward to these. looks like the Easter Bunny will come early! :-D Cheers, Rohan.

  5. UPDATE: the castings arrived today. Huzzah!
