Welcome To Sloppy Jalopy
From the people that bring you Partizan this is our company for
wargames products. Supplying vehicles and other stuff to complement your
games in scales that look right with your figures.
Our philosophy is that our vehicles should `look right` with the wargames figures you use on your miniature wargames table, hence the difference in scales. Great War and Inter-War (or Pulp Era) figures nominally developed for 28mm gaming actually tend to be on the large size, so fit better with 1/48th scale vehicles. Other manufacturers have released vehicles for this period but they tend to look too small. Likewise for the post colonial period (the second half of the twentieth century) the figures commercially available tend to be nearer to a true 28mm size, smaller than the earlier period, and so we decided to scale the vehicles for this period to a 1/56th scale.
WW1 & Interwar
Continuing our range of quirky and out of the ordinary figures suitable for some of those imaginary and not so imaginary interwar conflicts, we are very pleased to announce the release of our second set of Very British Civil War figures.
Armed Miners consists of 11 figures including Mine Foreman, banner carriers and Lewis Gun team as well as miners armed with rifles and shotguns. All the figures come with separate heads for flexibility - pit helmets, bare heads, flat caps and bowler. We will be adding more heads to the range shortly and these will also be available as a separate head pack for conversions.
IWOS006 - The Miners
Designed by Mr Matt Bickley and Mr Bill Thornhill. Painted by Mr Dave Woodward.
Also now available for the WW1 and Interwar range is the military version of the 1910 London Bus, all ready for service on the Western Front.
Next up for the IWV range will be more WW1 lorries and more armoured cars.
After much delay we are now in the process of augmenting our modern range by releasing the first of the vehicles formerly produced by Chieftain Models. We are starting with the CVRts and now have available to buy, the FV101 Scorpion, FV102 Striker, FV105 Sultan and FV107 Scimitar.
Looking forward, the Israeli Mutt Jeep will also be available shortly.
We will then start on the MBTs and are also looking to expand the ranges even further over the next year.
Let us know what you would like us to produce next. Is there a particular car or truck from between the wars that would go just perfectly with your game? Let us know and we will see what we can do.
