Early War Miniatures welcomes you to our Web store
18th November UPDATE
British Cavalry units added to the store. these cover from 1914 to 1942, heads from Field Service caps, Solar Topee and steel helmets.
Also included are cavalry conversion sets with different head options including Pith helmets. 50 + new codes and sets are now loaded. Thank you to all those who expressed interest in this new range. Tom made the originals for these 9+ years ago. They have been remastered and remolded and painted by Tony Jones.
10th November Update
So new Italian and SDF models being added to the store currently. These include SDF ford trucks with an LMG and troop carrier versions. New Italian tanks in EWM SUPERCAST for the M11/39 and M40 command tanks. Also, a more unusual subject of Italian colonial troops in the form of Libyan Askari and cavalry.
I have been inspired by the works of Alberto Parducci who paintings and illustrations of Italian military subjects are just fantastic. You can find his works here albertoparducci.it
New Italian tanks in EWM SUPERCAST……
A range of Libyan Askari are made and being uploaded to the store. Tom Lobley made these some time ago and his heads are just fantastic. The cavalry are also being added.
I shall be uploading these over the next few days……..
Work on the Circassian Cavalry is nearly finished and I hope to mold these next week. Tom has been very busy and created more Methardists dismounted to go with the others already made.
More updates to follow…….Enjoy
1st November Update
Warfare the show, will be at Ascot Race Course 27th/28th November 2021. We shall be there both days and look forward again, to seeing many of our customers at the show. Partizan was such a good tonic, to see lots of fabulous games in action and talk face to face with customers old and new.
Please do preorder what you know you want from us as I only carry 3 of each item to shows, and we certainly cant carry all our models to the show, only about 1/3 of what we make currently. The lines we do bring to shows can be quickly sold, but if you preorder, I can make sure you get what you want from us at the show. Im sure you will find other things to tempt you on the stand as well. Simply order via the webstore and check out as “collect at show”.
Warfare is one of our favorite shows and offers FREE parking and there are no charges to get to the show. £8 entry fee once you get there, a lot cheaper to access than Salute which is just before Warfare. Many of our new designs will be on show along with my famous GINGER NUTZ to nibble on. Andy and I look forward to seeing you there.
The EWM Italian range has seen a number of updates and the Webstore now lists the new range of Infantry in M40 continental uniforms. These come with separate heads and are now offered in packs with steel helmets. The same M40 uniform is available with Sun helmets and other head options, suitable for both European and African campaigns.
The range was completely remastered some time ago with new molds and new masters added. The separate heads have also been remastered and remolded, allowing you to pose the figures how you wish. You can add Helmets with feathers both steel and sun as you wish.
New 17 man Infantry squads are now available with steel helmets. These squads contain 2 groups. The fire group made up of a Sargent, 2 x 2 man teams with M30 LMG’s plus 2 riflemen and a 10 man rifle squad lead by a corporal for £12.70.
Orders update. We are running behind on orders containing Latex roads/tracks and our Trench systems. The trench systems are done now in batches to order and the weather is slowing production on our flexible roads and tracks. Your patience is appreciated and rewarded with some extras added to the order.
The British Cavalry so well painted were well received by people viewing them at Partizan and on the web store updates. Thank you to all for your interest in these new models. I hope to add them to the store when I get more of the models back painted.
The French Cavalry for WW2 also received the same remastering and remolding attention. I will be updating the webstore with the new images and prices soon. However, if you order them now from the store, you get the new models and castings, at the current price. I have a policy of not increasing prices on models where I have not had to invest in remastering and remolding. Currently, these French Cavalry are at the same price as when I bought the range in 2010. The price of Metal materials has increased dramatically, no really. The same metal shipment now costs us over 30% to buy. I dont plan on increasing prices and hope this was the last shipment of raw metal material I will have to buy at such an inflated price.
Im working on getting more models made, photographed, coded and on the store. Hope to see some of you at the Warfare show later this month…….
3rd October Update
Some new models added to the store this evening. Some new models and some updated ones. As we prepare for Partizan next weekend, loading the trade racks and immensely looking forward to attending the show in Newark.
The first of our new range of British Cavalry have come back from Tony Jones, who paints our miniatures superbly. The British Cavalry will cover the period from 1914 through WW1 into the Interwar and up to 1942. Separate heads allow anything from Field caps, helmets to sun helmets and solar topee to be used. Some have separate arms which allows a whole load of animated poses not possible as a single casting. Here they are, and will be on show at the Partizan show next weekend. Enjoy
some new head sets added including late war British Tank crews including RAC helmets, Berets with goggles and includes some useful 19 set radio Ariels. Also a range of 1940 Dutch Army heads including steel helmets a field cap and some rifles and a Lewis LMG. All useful for conversion work.
New to the store are a small range of Crusader tanks all in EWM SUPERCAST and Built & Ready format, all with crew and stowage included. It will take you more time to stick on the optional stowage than finish the kits! A15 Crusade Mk II QF 2 Pdr , a MkIII 6 pdr and Crusader AA Mk I 40mm and an AA Mk III twin 20mm anti aircraft versions.
The range of Valentine tanks have been upgraded to EWM supercast and have turned out rather well, including the Bishop SPG.
Last for now is the German Demag half track gun tow. Made in Supercast, highly detailed, just decide if you want the windscreen up or down, and stick driver and passenger in, good to go at £9.50.
Also available now with a PAK40 ATG at £12.50 for both models.
following requests from customers, the British late war tank crew and separate late war tanker helmets, will be available as a set. The models are in a mold cooking this evening.
More updates will follow as time allows…….loads more new things made to be added as I can.
EWM September 29th Update
We are at the Partizan Show on october 10th at the Newark show ground. Its a chance for me to catch up with old friends I have not seen for nearly 2 years and to see Tom, our top figure and model designer. If you want to guarantee we have what you want, please get a show preorder in by Tuesday next week.
Work has started loading many of the “new goodies” onto the EWM trade show racks ready for next weeks departure to Newark. This is a major job which has caused some delays to my updates to the EWM store.
Another cause of delays has been the need to get the new Studio I am building watertight. This build was delayed in the summer due to the catching of the China Virus in July, wiping me out with flu and a chest infection for 5+ weeks. That delay meant that I had to make it weather tight, get the roof on and laid by this weekend just past, as bad weather was predicted. More on the build will be found in a separate post here on the site.
Some new goodies added to the store tonight include a new set of mixed heads for LRDG figures. A mix of 15 New Zealand Lemon squeezer, bush hats, various Arab head dress, field caps and helmets with goggles, solar topees, bare heads and beret heads.
I will try to add a few more as time permits. Cheers
EWM 22nd September Update
4 new Interwar/early war Carden Lloyd models and sets and a new version of the German Panzer 1 uploaded.

More good news in that we have some lovely painted models by Tony Jones, a superb model painter. Thank you Tony for your work. Im sending him a batch of the new British Cavalry next to paint up.
Please get any show pre orders to us ASAP. The trade stands are not as fully stocked as I would like, so to avoid disappointment, get your order for collection at a show to us as soon as you can.
Looking forward to seeing some of you at these shows as we travel by ferry from the English tropics in the Undercliff, IOW to a show near you soon.
As the New ranges and models are loaded up I will make announcements accordingly.
Unfortunately, most of July and some of August was a wipe out for me as I caught the China Virus. Andy Buckland did a fantastic job of keeping the ship going during that difficult time. All recovered now, nearing the end of the new EWM studio/man cave. Pictures to follow.
