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.
Our deep thanks to everyone for making Historicon a great experience for Pico again! It was good to see many friends again and meet new ones along the way.
A special note of thanks to John Meyer for putting on the "Battle of Baltimore" game using a large force of Pico 3mm miniatures. Our congratulations to John for winning the first day's award for best game!
The new August releases are here! This month's releases include several new additions to the 3mm Si-Fi line as well as a new set of the 15mm mysterious green men. 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 Historicon, 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 sets. We will be ordering more next week and hope to have them back in stock in another week or two after ordering. 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
