A big set of reenforcements for the Army of the Netherlands is being uploaded to the store. Big thanks to Rob Tas for help with some of these designs both in practical design work and a wealth of reference pictures.
All the infantry and Artillery/support weapon crews have been remastered and remolded.
Too many new things to show here, so see them all under the Army of the Netherlands on the store.
Another addition by Tom is this British 60 pounder Mk1 fitted with either heavy wooden or “traction Engine” wheels. Lovely work by Tom on the gun and the wheels which are cast in White metal really help make this model.

update December 2022
Added the new BUILT & READY Panzer IIIE to the store tonight. I am visiting the wonderful Entoyment store this Wednesday 14th December, to do a restock and add some new lines. Come see them in the flesh….cheers
2nd December update….More new Builds in “BUILT & READY” designs, some new walls and other designs available now on the webstore…….
These are now loaded on the store under Scenery, buildings & accessories. Buildings and accessories – EWM (earlywarminiatures.com) on the webstore now so you can purchase them.
The first of a new range of stone walls also loaded, with 2 more walls ranges close to completion.
The concept of the Building PLOTZ was to provide nice buildings with proper surroundings. Houses on the own on a green cloth look like there is something missing. Buildings NEED Plots, so here are some of the new EWM PLOTZ with buildings, a few figures and models to show them in context.
First customers for these new buildings and PLOTZ have shown me some of their pictures, allowing houses to have the required detail to make the table more interesting and provide more cover for miniature battles.
I have created a new 2 up 2 down single story cottage, which can take dormers if required. These come BUILT & READY just stick the chimney pot on and decide front door open or closed….then start to paint it.
However, the detail does not stop on the outside for these models………
Interior detailing on these cottages consists of wooden floor boards, fire with chimney breast, and stairs up to the roof space, built in detailed stone partition wall to kitchen with cooker, sink and storage units with door to pantry under the stairs. Open front door, detailed upper floor with partition stone wall and floor boards. This ALL COMES molded in, just base colour paint it and wash for effect. model fighting in or from buildings has never been so interesting and because it come BUILT & READY, you can get it painted and on your table in no time.
There are more building designs , 2 more types of walls, a range of outbuildings all progressing nicely. Updates to follow…..Enjoy
4th November……The first designs for the built & Ready buildings and PLOTZ and some accessories are now loaded on the store. Building PLOTZ – EWM (earlywarminiatures.com)
The new building come built & ready in 4 pieces, walls, inner floor, roof and Chimney. Just stick the chimney on, paint it and go.
Some accessories to now all loaded on the store.
See them all at Warfare show next weekend…….Enjoy
28th October Update….
And now for something a bit different. EWM scenic’s have some new additions to the range. EWM BUILDING PLOTZ, to go with our remastered model buildings. BUILDING PLOTZ are essentially Built & Ready front and back gardens, yards.
Highly detailed, easy to paint, just add one front and rear for instant building PLOTZ for houses. It’s a concept I started working on 2 weeks ago and a number of designs are now made. The stone built house is also remastered and comes “BUILT & READY” in 4 pieces, walls, inner floor, roof and a chimney. Just paint it and use it. The new PLOTZ instantly adds more detail.
The next door plotz offers the “use of the adjourning wall” at front and rear. More designs are underway. These will work with other makers buildings with similar frontages.
I also created some other building accessories to add to the table. Some “outside toilets” or Kasi in 3 designs, one with a coal bunker. Another is a mix of pre-war dustbins, just nice accessories to dress the table.
The PZ IV has 2 new additions with the Wirbel-Wind and OstWind AA versions now supplied with a new SUPERCAST hull assembly covered in Zimmerit. Just a very small amount of building required for the turret and AA gun assemblies, which can be elevated as required.
The 35T has also had a brush up, and a new BUILT & READY Supercast hull and turret with optional crewman and accessories.
Warfare Show is nearly upon us so please do pre-order for show collection and give us as much notice as possible, so we can ensure we have what you want at the show.

WEBSTORE UPDATE 12th SEPTEMBER

You will find these new ranges here Division Leclerc: The Leclerc Column. – EWM (earlywarminiatures.com)
So many new exciting new models added to the store. More to follow. All these new French additions will require a re arrangement of some of our trade show racks. Do please pre-order for shows we are attending this year at Partizan and Warfare. See you there perhaps?
Webstore update 1st September
Some more LRDG accessory packs added to the store this week. Just a reminder we are at the wonderful Partizan show in Early October and Warfare in November. The ranges are simply too vast to carry all things to shows, so please do “pre-order” from this website and check out as “collect from store” and indicate which show you want to collect at in the text field.
Although I try to carry 3 or 4 of each item that we do carry to shows, these can get easily depleted at the show, so please do pre-order where you can, and perhaps top up from what we carry at the shows.
I do really enjoy the shows, a chance to speak with our customers and for you to enjoy my fine GINGER NUTZ! More updates to follow soon including the range of Free French Le Clerk’s desert troops including Legionnaires camel mounted and dismounted, Chad troops, Meharists both camel mounted and dismounted and the converted Bedford trucks for deep desert operations against the Italians and Germans in southern Libya in WW2.
18th August 2022 update
More new additions for the French Army including some sets to make it easier to have the right thing towing the right guns. The most common French Army horse drawn carts and trailer for vehicles have been remastered and remolded.
81 mm Mortar carts with the 5 man team leading and marching with the carts.
The most common Army vehicle towed trailer used on all fronts and by the Germans after the fall of France.
A new 6 man team carrying the Hotchkiss MMG and ammunition’s into action offered as a set.
Update 11th August 2022
Tom Lobley recently made an 18/25 Pdr MkV split trail field gun, used across many fronts in early WW2 from France/Belgium to Norway, North & East Africa and the Far East. I took the opportunity to remaster the original 18/25 Pdr MkIV by decreasing the number of pieces and remolding. Further I remastered some new crewman for both these Field guns. Followed by a built & ready version of the Guy Ant field gun tractor unit.
The Caisson now comes BUILT & READY just decide doors open or closed, plus I reduced the price as it is easier for us to produce them. The Guy Ant comes built & ready made from EWM SUPERCAST, just take out of the pack and paint.
So, these field guns come as just a gun or as sets for Gun plus Caisson, Gun-Caisson & Crew and Gun Tractor – Caisson and Field gun. Hope you like them.
2022 shows…we shall be at Partizan in October and Warfare in November, hope to see some of you there.
Some more new additions to the French Range in the form of a Schneider Mountain gun in service with the French and Greek Armies. Gun designed by the magnificent Tom Lobley. Available as a single gun or towed by 2 horses.
A new Early War British Gun set is now ready to be added. A Guy Ant tractor unit, pulling an 18/25 pounder field gun and Caisson. The Caisson and the guy ant come BUILT & READY with optional doors open or closed on the Caisson. The field gun has very few parts and is made from quality white metal castings. The Guy Ant is cast in EWM SUPERCAST resin and is ready to paint. The Guy will be available separately also for £7.75.
Thank you for your business and ENJOY.
