The SDF or Sudan Defense Force Infantry have now been added to the store. Typically dismounted from trucks, these are different from the mounted troopers of the SDF camel and cavalry corps already loaded on the store. These fought battles in the Sudan in the region of the Blue Nile, in Eritrea and Abyssinia.
I have both the Somali Camel corps and mountain artillery units made, just need to be photographed and loaded here.
New Range updates….I have an extensive new range for early war British and Commonwealth forces for Middle East thats Iraq & Syria. East Africa so the Sudan frontier battles, Eritrea and Abyssinia. The Far East so Malaya, Borneo, and early Burma operations. All feature separate head options already featured on the store.

19th April Update – We are on top of back orders and some new goodies can be added to the store. Pleased to report we have caught up on nearly all the back orders. There is a large batch going out on the Wednesday post run (Our post office is half day Tuesdays). A lot of packing will be taking place Tuesday. Thank you again for those with orders for your patience and understanding during recent months.
Having had more long dental treatment this morning, i used the rest of this day to update and photograph some of the new models and “upgrades” that are ready to go out. Its a start, as there are many more to add. These are now all added to the store. More updates will follow shortly.
New designs and SUPERCAST resins.
I wanted to share a major development I have made here at EWM. Our resin models have been improving over the years since we started to make them. I made a major breakthrough in recent weeks in resin casting. The way we mould masters, how they are mounted, the silicone rubbers and complex blends of catalyst we use and the new resin and how it is added to the moulds, has all changed in these new designs.
The result is a highly detailed fine castings, tracks or wheels on. The ability to reproduce such castings consistently and with many reproductions from such complex moulds has taken many years to perfect. I have been lucky with support from some masters in this business, Jim Brown being one. I developed and made a major step change and improvement in late November 2020. Testing the new methods and Technology involved has taken place to ensure that I just “did not get lucky” one time? The third batch is proof its repeatable and its producing some awesome results.
The results when they came out of the moulds are a major improvement over previous methods of moulding and casting. When I looked at the castings, I commented that they are “SUPER”, and so the name has stuck.
EWM SUPERCAST then is a name I want to use to signal to customers that the model labelled as SUPERCAST is made using these new techniques and materials. As such, you will expect something of a certain quality and design concept. EWM SUPERCAST uses quality, drop proof plastic resin, moulded so that you get a superb model casting with minimal clean up. Other parts will be made from quality white metal castings. Such things as gun barrels, machine guns, hatches or the tiny parts that when either made from resin OR printed parts, are too fragile to be used on models that require handling in gaming. This combination of finely cast resin models, with metal details or exposed parts, makes them perfect for gaming or modelling. The resin casting means the model comes virtually ready made, just add detail as required like hatches open or closed, gun elevated or crew added.
SUPERCAST then enters as a method of manufacture and as a new standard to be recognised. The first models made with this method are the Stuart M3A3 Recce in British and Canadian use.
This is how the model comes plus a selection of white metal 2x .30 cal MMGs and a .50 HMG with the early version front gun mount and an optional folding tilt cover. Just add the options you want, under 5 minutes to add the options you want, then paint it.
First of many using the new EWM SUPERCAST process, a future mark of quality and design.
Thank you for your business in 2020 and heres to making 2021 even better. There are so many exciting new models I want to share with you, but I have to focus on production and orders for now.

28th November UPDATE: Morris portee and Belgian FN63c truck added to store. Thank you for all the emails ordering them, well here they are….Enjoy
27th November UPDATE: More new goodies added to the store including a whole new selection of newly modeled and cast heads and weapons. These are for the British and Commonwealth forces covering from 1914 to 1945 and beyond. More below on those.
New additions for the Kings African Rifles KAR including Lewis guns and transport animals. A big thank you to Jonathan at the Medel of KAR museum in the Zambia and Doug Crowther for their information and references that enabled these additional figures to be created.
I have been developing a range of separate heads and newly worked weapons for British and commonwealth forces from 1914 to 1945 and beyond. A whole new range of British and commonwealth miniatures to cover both Early War North and East Africa and the middle and Far east campaigns.
These head sets are now available on the store. We had so many requests for our separate heads, so here they now are on the site. More to be added soon.
Last but not least, a new Morris Truck with 37mm ATG portee and a painted RIVER section. I will add this shortly along with some other Morris truck versions…coming soon.
We had the pleasure of making some Roads and Streets for Greg war of [email protected] and www.facebook.com/groups/386297688467965/permalink/941753402922 . He has made an excellent video showing our products that I painted for him. he runs a great youtube channel, a must for early war France and players of Chain of command. See it here at:
More new American and Russian models to follow in September.
My good friend Steve Renwick of Battle Zone Miniatures (BZM) has been busy making some great new additions to his 20mm Russian and American ranges. EWM carry all of his products to shows and already has some available on our webstore. I shall be adding a whole lot more as soon as I can in September. These are truly lovely models and Steve has given them the treatment they deserve, taking them to a very high level of detail and ease of building. I’m really proud to be able to offer these miniatures and models along side the EWM ranges. They are totally compatible with my EWM models.
Nearly 50 years ago, Steve and I were mates growing up in Edmonton in North London, then went to the same school and now we work together, helping each other to make and create models and miniatures.
Siam in WW2. World war 2 yes, Vietnam but not as we know it?
A brand new range is ready to launch, the Army of Siam 1930 to 1942, with post 1942 additions in the works. A big thank you to one of our customers who inspired and helped us shape the range with both technical knowledge and inspiration. The Thai’s fought themselves in a civil war in 1933. They then launched a campaign against Vichy French Indochina in December 1940 for a number of provinces lost earlier in the 20th Century. Next they fought the Japs and British, initially at the same time, then turned into an axis power with further battles against the British and even Chinese Nationalists.
Update…..We have just finished molding the Thai Military Police forces. These were often the first troops encountered by the French, Japs and British forces.
A link to a film that may interest some. The Army of Siam had the dubious honor to fight both the Japanese and the British forces on December 8th 1941, actually about 2 hours before Pearl harbor started. Amongst those troops fielded by Siam were the Yuwachon Thahan which was a military/political youth organisation.
A short tribute with footage from a film covering the said action here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DmolrpNSXs
The full movie is also worth a watch, the last 30 minutes deal with the build up to war, training and then the fighting against the Japanese. Some great footage of the Yuwachon Thahan fighting the Japanese. Such events, campaigns and battles are “war gaming gold”. These youth troops fought exceptionally well against experienced and aggressive Japanese troops. Combine this with the Franco-Thai war earlier in 1940/41 where Siam fought the French in what is now Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia.
The figures first got an outing with a successful demo game hosted by Adrian White and friends at Tonbridge in February 2020. Righty it won best demo game at this show. Painted By Adrian White.
A new range of Vichy French suitable for Syria, Indochina and Madagascar are now available on the webstore. Here are a few more tasters.
Thank you for your business and ENJOY.
