Gringo 40's will be at Warfare 2018, Reading. November 17th & 18th.

Gringo 40's Euro Tour continues. Having just returned from our successful trip to The Crisis wargame show in Antwerp El Hefe has had the team beavering away restocking and preparing the stand for Warfare 2018.

As well as our established ranges Ged and the team have dozens of new minis for you to check out and buy. Including the superb French multi media boat kits for the Tonkin 1885 range, which are suitable for all you Franco Prussian wargamers too.

On show for the first time will be the all new French Zouaves and Turco troops. Personally, I,  particularly like the very debonair French officer taking his men forward sword at his side with pistol in hand.

There will be plenty of cracking deals to be had on the day. So be sure to stop by and have a chat with Ged and the team where there will be plenty of exciting models and miniatures to pique your interest.

If you can't make it to Warfare you can check out our full range of models by clicking HERE.

Gringo40's will be at the Crisis 2018 Wargame Show, Antwerp.

El Hefe and the team are currently en route to Antwerp and the Crisis Wargame show with a van load of wargaming miniature goodness. The team will be setting up our stand where you can view and purchase from our huge range of miniatures and models.

Taking pride of place will be our new French Naval Boat kits. The range includes superb models for every pocket from the delightful Sampan, that can be used for just about any period, up to the stunning "Revolver" Gunboat which will dominate any wargame table or display.

The Revolver was shipped from France to take part in the Tonkin 1885 Campaign having already served with distinction during the Franco Prussian War; and is most suitable for any Franco Prussian wargamer wanting to enact river action on their gaming table. A large multimedia kit the "Revolver" is for the serious gamer and any model maker will enjoy its scale, detail and size.

My personal favourite is the Torpedo Boat complete with its resolute Captain atop the bridge. I can envisage gaming an 1885 version of Apocalypse Now with this one.

If you are lucky enough to be attending Crisis 2018 be sure to stop of and have a chat with Ged and the team while exploring our models. Ged has confirmed that there will be some very special deals to be had on the day.

If you are not fortunate enough to be attending Crisis 2018 or simply want a preview of what we will have available at our stand you can check out our huge range for yourself  at our online web store.

Gringo40's Blog: Back and Updated!

With the sort of epiphany that can only be found on the road to Damascus or in my case at the bottom of a triple glass of 18 year old single malt the password for the Blog has been remembered. So, after a long leave of absence, starting with today's post I am pleased to say that I will be updating the Blog on a slightly irregular, but more regular basis.

Since my last post (in 201....has it really that long??) here at Gringo 40's we have not only increased our established ranges of miniatures but added many new, unique and exciting periods not normally covered by the more mainstream manufactures. So whether you want to game an Aztec Demon of the Dark Warrior Knight against invading Conquistadors, or as Captain Danjou's forlorn hope of  65 French Foreign Legionaries fighting against more than 3000 Mexican infantry and cavalry we have it covered.

Our latest Tonkin 1885 range will transport you to the hot steaming jungles of French Indochina where stalwart Legionaries, French Naval Marines and Fusiliers take on the dastardly Black Flag Pirates.

My personal favourite are stunning Legionnaire miniatures that allow you to represent the indomitable Captain Danjou leading his men against an insurmountable enemy at the Battle of Camaron in April of 1863. Of the 65 only 3 survived, who when lead before General Milan is recorded as asking, "Is this all of them? Is this all of the men who are left?" Then, in amazement, exclaiming, "These are not men! They are demons!" Such is the stuff of legends and the French Foreign Legion.

As you should hopefully know by now Gringo 40's will be attending Crisis 2018 in Antwerp where you can come along check out our complete range and meet Ged ("El Hefe") and the team for a chat. Of course there will be some exciting offers on the day. We will of course be exhibiting and selling our superb new and exclusive miniatures for the Tonkin 1885 range. While news of these models is still under wraps I am permitted to give you a clue....Think "Apocalypse Now" but with an 1885 twist.

Be sure to check out our website for all these exciting miniatures at 

I will be updating the Blog next week with more exciting news and the full gen on new Tonkin Models. Until then...Viva Muchachos!
