Visit Wee Men


I have a new blog about plastic toy soldiers! I've reached a point where I felt that I wanted a specific blog to highlight one of my favorite collections. I've been collecting for some time now, and although I've already lost a great portion of the toy soldiers I grew up with, I'm slowly building up a new collection, one I'd like to share with fellow enthusiasts. Thus, Wee Men was born.

To prevent overlapping content with my other blogs, my criteria for including content here are the following:

  • plastic only
  • figures must be depictions of uniformed military personnel from all eras and may include knights, cowboys, pirates, and other subjects that involve combat-related themes
  • Figure scale must be in the ff scales: 1:24, 1:28, 1:32, 1:35, 1:56, 1:48, 1:72, 1:76, 1:87 and even smaller scales
  • Posed figures only; no work-in-progress pictures
  • Painted or unpainted
Some of these might end up as wargaming armies. Some might not. Just expect most of my plastic figures to show up there.

Drop by and check out the sets!

  1. Sorry, but where's the link to your new site?

    1. Opps, it would appear that this is it! :-)

      So what's the criteria for what goes in the new blog vs. what goes here? Is this now just for the subset of your miniatures used for gaming?

  2. Oh sorry for the lack of a link. I'll correct that now. As for the criteria, here's a working one:)

    To prevent overlapping content with my other blogs, my criteria for including content here are the following:

    -plastic only
    -figures must be depictions of uniformed military personnel from all eras and may include knights, cowboys, pirates, and other subjects that involve combat-related themes
    -figure scale must be in the ff scales: 1:24, 1:28, 1:32, 1:35, 1:56, 1:48, 1:72, 1:76, 1:87 and even smaller scales
    -posed figures only; no work-in-progress pictures
    -painted or unpainted

    Basically, these would be the unpainted, out of the box plastic figures I'll eventually use for wargaming. Eventually. I hope. :)

Army Building: Using Gormiti for Fantasy Wargaming

The funny thing about doing some house chores is that I inadevertently unearth stuff that I've kept stashed for some time. In this case, I found a boxful of toys I bought a year ago. Among the odds and ends I found some vinyl toys, gashopon & Gormiti figures. I've been holding on to some of these figures that I found at the local toy department and I've been eyeing some as new recruits for various fantasy armies.

The big four armed bruiser with the tree-like limbs and vines seems a likely candidate as a behemoth in my People of the Woods army as an ent. A resculpt of the head and a bit of a trim at the left hand may do the trick. As is, the monster looks like he's giving someone the dirty finger:)
Aside from the Ad&D Battlesystem and Warmaster rulesets, I'm also swaying towards HOTT as another regular ruleset and found a seller in ebay. Pretty soon, I may purchase the rules and begin my foray in HOTT. Meanwhile, the fishy thingie shown below could stock up …

Major General Tremorden Rederring's Colonial-era Wargames Page

A bit of nostalgia here. I'm gearing up for a weekend of working on my wargame table and was surfing for inspiration. Happily, I rediscovered Major General Tremorden Rederring's Colonial-era Wargames at the Wayback Machine. This wargaming group's been a source of inspiration ever since I discovered the wonderful world of miniature wargaming. Just look at that picture above and tell me you're not impressed. WOW! was all I could think off when I saw it.




The page has since given its last huzzah and I don't know what's become of the group, but I'm sure I'll be rereading the material they still have archived. A veritable treasure chest of miniature gaming gems, the page embodied the FUN side of miniature gaming, neither taking itself too seriously nor scrimping on the joys of the hobby and its subsidiary hobbies/crafts. It's a pity if such a wonderful resource and such a huge contribution to the hobby is lost. I discovered the page waaaay back then when…
