Announcing re-release of Babylonians and Romano British

Meanwhile we keep advancing in the sculpting of the Trojan Horse, we at Hegemony Miniatures we have decided to re-release our first two sets in hard plastic, which will be much easier to paint and cheaper to buy. No more sets will be produced with the old rubber material.

The Babylonians will be not available during some time while they are produced with the new material, and they will be offered in a box.

The Romano British will still be available while stocks last, and then they will be unavailable for some time too until all adjustments and tests with the moulds are done and we can guarantee a minimum stock.

More news; The Trojan Horse and open poll

We have just finished our last set and we already thinking of the next ones!

It has been confirmed the next set will be the Trojan Horse. A fully 1/72 model of the legendary horse that allowed the Greeks to enter to the city of Troy. Unseen since the Atlantic release, now almost impossible to find. It will be made 100 % of hard plastic.

The next piece of news is that we have opened a poll to help us decide the next set of soldiers. 

It is in your hand to decide which will be the subject! this poll will be conducted and taken into account different forums and websites.

This are the subjects;

Atlanteans; Semi-fantasy subject. A pseudo-historical representation of what could have been the Atlanteans if they really existed, seen as a sort of Mycenaean soldiers, with some fantasy touches.

Phoenicians; Pre-Persian rule, in their Golden Age. 1200 BC - 539 BC roughly.

Ponthic Army; The soldiers which Mithridates IV used against the Romans so many times.

Bagaudae; The peasant revolts that shakened the Roman Empire in it's decline.

Vandals; Will be made as the Vandals under Geiseric which sacked Rome in 455 AD.

Magyars; Circa 900 AD, as in their last battle against Otto II.

Napoleonic Ottoman Army; As the name suggests, Ottoman Army during the Napoleonic period.

Napoleonic French Sailors; All round sailors, not just official types, also sailors with informal uniform.

Greek Infantry WW1; Regular army and volunteers

Iraqi Army (first Gulf War); Regular army and rebels

Persian War Elephants set released!!!

A great day comes as we release our first 100 % plastic set, the Persian War Elephants! 

We continue improving our releases, with finer sculpting, less flash (almost non-existant!) and with a plastic that will make painting as easy as any regular plastic soldier on the market today. This set can be glued with solvent glue, like Poly Cement from Humbrol. 

Nevertheless, we keep our environmental friendly manufacturing process, which uses bio-degradable plastic and produces nearly no residues nor toxic emissions.

You can buy them now securely through PayPal using the Buy Now button or if you prefer directly from eBay;

Persian War Elephants; prototype pics

Here at Hegemony Miniatures we keep busy preparing the next set to release. The prototypes are finished and the release is going to be very soon. The Persian War Elephants will complete the gap left by other manufacturers, giving you the opportunity of perfectly representing the battle of Gaugamela, and other important battles of the Persian Empire.

As principal novelties, this set will be 100 % made out of plastic (bio-degradable plastic). And the flash will be reduced drastically. We have made this change to improve and be able offer better and more detailed figures, which will be much easier to paint. 

The set will consist of 2 Elephants and 6 crew. 

I leave you with the pics of the prototypes;
