UK Events 2017 (Update)


To make sure Footsore Miniatures are available at as many events as possible in the UK we work with the tireless Andy Lyon of Ainsty Castings to enable him to take as much of our Footsore Miniature range as possible on his travels.

Andy and the team at Ainsty Castings have been selling high quality resin terrain and miniatures for many years now. They go to over 30 war games shows a year. Andy himself is a Saga master and foremost expert on all things Dark Ages which ties in nicely with a lot of our miniatures.

Along with a full range of Saga rules he carries over 80 packs of the Footsore Miniatures range. So whether you are into Late Romans, Saxons, Goths, Arabs or even the award winning Dark Age Irish be sure to stop by their stand. He may even have one of our new releases or two to sell you!  

If you want to look at the range before you buy get yourself along to these shows during 2017...

New Anglo-Saxon Warband, Picts and Historicon 2016

Today we are releasing the second in a series of Skirmish Warband deals the Anglo-Saxons and as we did with the Dark Age Irish we are giving you your warlord for free. We are also showing off the soon to be released Picts as we get ready for Historicon 2016, we hope to see you there.

Anglo-Saxon Skirmish Warband for Saga

This Anglo-Saxon Warband is designed to be suitable for a 4 point SAGA force. It provides you with a solid core of troops that can be then further customised and built upon for bigger games, and just like in the SAGA rules we give you your Warlord for free.

Anglo-Saxon 4pt Saga Warband

The warband consists of the following;

1x Warlord and banner man
2x Thegn (Hearthguard) units (4 figures each)
2x Fryd (Warrior) units (8 figures each)

 Every model is different! Banners, spears and bases not included.

Keep your eyes open for more warbands from us in the coming months as we plan to release as many as we can.

Sneak Peak: Picts

If you follow our Facebook Group you will have already had a sneak peak at our major release for this month which are the Picts and Scots.  If you are going to Historicon 2016 in a couple of weeks you could be lucky enough to get your hands on the first of these models before they are released later in July - early August 2016.

New Releases

If you are looking for new releases at Historicon you won't be disappointed as we will be bringing these exclusives with us....

Brian Boru, High King of Ireland

He's sculpted in his old age at the battle of Clontarf in 1014 AD which was to be his last battle. Its said he was slain while praying by the Viking Brodir, who was later captured by Brians brother Ulf the Quarellsome. Brodir was then given a horrible death involving a tree and entrails. 

Ulf (Wolf) the Quarrelsome

Ulf was possibly Brian Borus brother or stepson. His mother had been killed in a Viking raid so his hatred of the Norsemen was legendary. He was so incensed at the death of Brian Boru that he hunted down his killers and had them all put to a grisly end. He was generally in a bad mood most of the time we are guessing.

The Priest

The is Father Jack, a bad tempered firebrand who believes that death is a worthy punishment to the enemies of God. He will take up arms and and the cross for any warlord or king that will fight on the side of righteousness.

Although these are being made exclusively for Historicon 2015, future purchases can be made directly through the web store after the event.  

To the Strongest!

Also at Historicon we will be exclusively stocking 'To the Strongest!' which is an excellent set of rules for Ancient and Medieval tabletop wargaming. It enables a battle to be fought with model soldiers on a dining room table and won or lost in less than two hours. But the rules also support huge battles, with several thousand figures and up to five players a side.

The rules include scenarios, terrain and points values to support those players who wish to play competitively. Numerous army lists are available online for free. These start with the Biblical era, go through to Late Medieval times, covering all periods in between.

The rules have been written in plain English, with appropriate diagrams, sample lists and many examples of play. They are copiously illustrated with pictures of battles and beautifully painted miniatures. They have proved popular with veteran and novice wargamers alike!

Find out more about these excellent rules by speaking to us at Historicon or if you're not attending check out their website.  I am sure like us you will agree they make an ideal companion to our range miniatures.
