WELCOME to PICO ARMOR!
PicoArmor is a website dedicated to war gaming at the 1/600 scale. We are offering Oddzial Osmy (O8) miniatures and our 3mm buildings as leading products. We also carry Brigade Models excellent line of 2mm buildings and terrain that blend in very nicely on the gaming table with the 3mm miniatures.
Historicon (17 - 20 July @ Fredericksburg,VA)
Pico Armor will be attending Historicon as one of the on-site vendors again this summer.
Our apologies for delays in any processing and shipping of orders for the next two weeks (15 Jul - 24 Jul). The Johns will be on their way to and on site at Historicon. We will also be making a detour to Gettysburg on the way back. Due to the amount of stock being taken, it will take us a couple of days to get back up and running upon our return. Consequently no orders or shipements will be processed from now until 24 July after our return. Our apologies for any inconveniences.
New Arrivals Are Have Arrived!
The new July releases are here! This month's releases include several new additions to the 3mm Si-Fi line as well as the debut of 15mm SF vampires. Check the New Products page for a complete listing of what is on the way.
Out of Stock
Due to the recent volume of sales online and at Little Wars, we are out of several items. Prime among these are the Soviet Red Star decals (Ru-600-1). We are working on orders for new stock but it will be possibly four to five months before new decals come in.
Several of the Brigade Models terrain items are out of stock including the Normandy Village and Churches sets. We will probably not have more until after we return from Historicon. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
Hussari, 15mm Si-Fi
Some of you have been asking about what the new Hussari figures in the 15mm Si-Fi line represent. I checked with Marcin, stating that I assumed they were an interpretation of the Polish Winged Hussars, and this is what he sent back:
"The Hussari indeed have their roots in the look of the Winged Hussars from the XVII Century. They are designed as a heavy assault infantry unit cooperating sometimes with NVL light infantry. I had nothing specific in mind when making the wings. They can be force field generators, part of a decoy system, a kind of jump-pack, or just there for a cool look."
Looks like you are all free to interpret the "wings" freely as to how you utlize them in your gaming. Enjoy! Also, there are more Hussari figures coming up in the future.
Due to the ongoing and inconsiderate intrusion of real life distractors we remain planning additional expansion of the web site but not quite able to complete the projects. Please bear with us.
- Updates to the links page as some of you have noted several are no longer functional.
- Over the next few months we still hope to start the photo gallery with lots of new pictures from many of you who sent us photos of your minis.
- John S. continues to hope to post up a couple of tutorials on painting and basing the O8 minis.
- We continue to find odds and ends of data that were either lost or garbled from the transfer to the new web site. We have caught a lot of things over the past few months but there still sem to be a few lurking somewhere. If you find items that are missing information or have something that does not make sense, please let us know so we can update it properly.
- The Johns
