Wow, January was a busy month here at the Architects of War World Head Quarters Complex.

First things first, THANK YOU for your continued support!

Some bad news first- We are moving to a Flat Rate shipping plan by Feb 15th. This means you have until then to take advantage of our Free Shipping  (Domestic US orders) on Orders over $50. Additionally ALL of our suppliers, both of material and other Miniature manufacturers have all raised or are raising their prices. That means we will be taking our prices up around the 15th of February on lots of items we carry. Another reason to order now!

Now GOOD news!
We are very happy to announce that we have added Renedra to our growing Exclusive Distribution brands for North America.  We will be stocking all of their products and selling them to retailers and direct through our own website.  For those unfamiliar with Renedra, they produce the plastics for Perry Miniatures, Gripping Beast, Warlord Games, Mantic, Conquest Games, Immortal Miniatures and others.  They are the premier plastic manufacturer in the Historical gaming market.  Combining modern technology with old world craftsmanship, they are the best of the best, and we are very happy to represent them here in the North America.  Besides doing the tooling form some of the best miniatures around, Renedra make a fantastic and growing range of accessories.  Tents, fences and bases are just the start, with much more to come.  This now brings Perry Miniatures Plastics, Gripping Beast and Renedra together under one roof for the North American market.  In addition, we carry Immortal, Conquest Games, LBMS, Warlord Games, Woodland Scenics and Battleflag. 
Of course, our own ranges of terrain and figures continue to expand and we have many exciting new products coming in the next few months.  We are trying hard to be the best place to get 28mm Historical Miniatures in the US and with Renedra, we have just taken another step closer to our goal.  We should have all of the product in and up on the website within the next two weeks.

NEW Architects of War releases!

Our Hedge Row Sets are here and are ready to ship! With this set, you get 40 inches of sculpted hedge row bases, six trees, and enough bush material to complete them. These are old, overgrown hedges suitable for gaming almost any period. Personally, we have them in games depicting WW2, the English Civil War, and the American Civil War scenarios. They would be very suitable for Napoleonic and the American Revolution games too! The hedge row bases contain beautiful details including a rabbit hole (Ok, Dave, yours can be a Badger den) roots and mud banks. Take a look at the Hedge Row Product Instructions to see how quickly this kit comes together.  This product is a versatile and useful item at $50.00.

Overgrown Walls -The start of our new dry stone walling system is this set of two overgrown wall sections. They are the perfect companion to our forth coming Stone Wall sets and also fit in perfectly with our new Hedge Row Sets.

You get two eight inch sections of old stone wall, 2 trees and product instructions. These stone wall section are beautifully sculpted one stone at a time. No cast kitty litter here! Priced at $25 a set.

FREE “How To” PDFs - We’ve just gotten started with our Hobby Library of “How To” articles and Combat Reports. We have two “How To” Articles,How to Make Forests and How to Make Smoke Markers . In the Gaming section, we have a quickCombat Report covering some WW2 resistance fighting. Don’t forget, you can always find assembly and painting instruction in the Product Instructions section of our website.
