As the anniversary of D-Day approaches, we thought that we'd jump on the bandwagon and use it as an excuse to remind you all of the thousands of print-on-demand WWII campaigns studies, maps, equipment and vehicle manuals, Official War Office accounts from the Ministry of Defense and RAF Hendon libraries, all mostly uniquely from us. Click on the Caliver Research Library button on our splash page.

For you Cult TV and film figure gamers and collectors, we are very pleased to announce that we have bought the Rogue Miniatures range of figures from that fine chap, Andy Kinnear. We have added it to our existing Wayne's World of Wonder range as it fits in rather nicely. Please have a look at Rogue Miniatures/Wayne's World of Wonder, the figures will be added over the next day or so.

So on with what's in this week (as well as a few reminders of some great old stuff)…
