Phil at Spithead Miniatures is working on some 1860's Ironclads now that he's completed his Lissa project.

No website I can direct you to and I've never worked out how to post photos here, sorry, but he can be contacted for further information at

That's probably lower case vanilla not uppercase Vanilla, well it was when I tried it.

No, it doesn't matter. Email is insensitive to capitalization. You can email vANiLlA55@SkY.COm and it would still get to Phil.

Mine arrived last night: 3x Gloire class (Set 1), 2x Magenta class and Couronne (Set 2), and 6x Provence class (Set 3, two copies).

I thought about getting 3 or even 4 sets of Set 3 so I could have all 10 vessels in the Provence class, but I decided I couldn't see having more than 6 in a battleline and I didn't want to store that many after they're built.

His timing couldn't have been worse for me I put a complete moratorium on buying miniatures a month ago. However, these are not going to wait for me, so I bought them while I still could.
