Early War Miniatures welcomes you to our Web store
March 24th Update ………..Following the Prime Minsters announcement yesterday and we have been looking at these extraordinary and changing times and how they will affect us. After much consideration, EWM will continue to operate but with a limited function. Our local post office seems to have closed today, affecting our ability to post orders. I plan to do a post run weekly when I venture out for food supplies. Andy who works here with us has to travel by bus and so until further notice, we have agreed he should not expose himself in that way every day.
We shall continue to work our way through orders already with us, but I hope you will appreciate our ability to turn these around in our usual fashion is somewhat restricted by circumstances beyond our control.
You can place new orders and where these are in stock and we can post them weekly. Larger orders may take a little longer to turn around.
We shall continue to add details of the new ranges we have worked so hard on, hoping they bring a little comfort to our customers.
The Virus situation and its impacts change rapidly and should things change, we will update our customers here on our webstore.
Thank you for your patience if you are waiting a for an order placed with us.

23rd March update. Changes to Postage charges, More new additions to the Royal Army of Siam and the first Vichy French colonial troops being added to the store now.
Changes to Postal Charges – 23rd March . Following yet more large rises in the Royal Mails postal charges, having kept the prices the same for the last 2 years and swallowed the increased costs, we have reluctantly had to raise our postage rates. Please note that where your postage rate paid allows, we upgrade to 1st class or tracked for non UK. we also add extras to the orders if there is a slight over payment. Free Postage rates have also changed. For the UK its remains at £150 and over, postage signed for remains free. For the rest of the world, Free postage is now for orders over £200, again sent tracked.
Shows….2020. subject to these shows running, we plan to be at Phalanx in June followed by attendance at the MAFVA nationals supporting my friend Steve Renwick of Battle Zone Miniatures. Bovington Tank museum, 11th July on the Saturday, 1 day only show.
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 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 for a number of provinces lost earlier in the 20th Century. Next the Japs and British, initially at the same time, then turned into an axis power further battles against the British and even Chinese Nationalists.
The figures first got an outing with a successful demo game hosted by Adrian White and friends at Tonbridge in February. Righty it won best demo game at this show. Painted By Adrian White.
More new American and Russian models to follow soon.
My good friend Steve Renwick of Battle Zone Miniatures (BZM) has been busy making some great additions to his Russian and American ranges. EWM carry his products to shows and has some available on our webstore. I shall be adding more as soon as I can.
A new range of Vichy French suitable for Syria, Indochina and Madagascar will be out very soon. Here are a few tasters.
These have been on my work bench for too long, time to show them and add to the EWM ranges.
