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.
The new April releases are on their way. This month's releases include new additions to the Hussari Si-Fi figures and more WWI planes. Check the New Products page for a complete listing of what is new.
We hope to have the new releases in time for Little Wars if the postal services don't hold things up somewhere.
New 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.
Little Wars (26 - 28 April @ St. Charles, IL)
Some of you have been asking about our presence at Little Wars this year. We will be there with stock. However, we do not appear in the published listing of vendors since we will once again be sharing space with our local Mount Pleasant vendor, Games Plus. We look forward to seeing you there!
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.
