If you were a kid in the 1960s who loved history and toy soldiers, you probably had a WOW figure!

Marx WOW figures

The Marx Warriors of the World figures were sold in dime stores everywhere. Each figure was packaged individually in a small cardboard box that included a fictitious bio card about the figure. The Warriors included Civil War soldiers, Revolutionary soldiers, Cowboys, Indian braves, Pirates, Vikings, and Cadets.

The original Marx figures were 60mm, hard (brittle?) plastic, and hand-painted in Hong Kong or Germany.

Custom Generals from Gettysburg Soldiers

Our Custom Generals from Gettysburg Soldiers were inspired by these WOW figures of our childhood, except our figures are made of pewter, 15/18mm, and made for wargaming.

Gettysburg Soldiers rules

This month celebrates the 10th anniversary of Gettysburg Soldiers' custom-painted figures and our ACW rules. Now in 2021, the AWI and Alamo versions of the Gettysburg Soldiers rules are also available.

Hope to see you across the wargame table at our next gaming convention!
