Welcome to the June edition of Sierra Toy Soldier News, written on a very hot day here in the Bay area. Temperatures have been bouncing up and down. One day thanks to the coastal fog that rolls in this time of year the temperature drops to 70 (lovely) then zooms up to over 90. Unfortunately, the hot weather has caused fire season to start way earlier than usual, normally it starts in late August. Support your local firefighters, most who are unpaid volunteers, we need them.

Coming to the Chicagoland show on September 19th – 22nd. Start planning now the hotel has a special rate and plane fares may be reasonable. We will be doing room trading and attending the main Sunday event. Please contact for extra details.

We have a great set of new releases for you to enjoy. Releases from King and Country, John Jenkins, Thomas Gunn and War Park.

D'Day - France

The liberation of France was brought about by the combined military efforts of the Western Allied Powers, Free French forces and the French Resistance. As the Allies advanced and the Germans retreated the populations of village after village and town after town poured into the streets to greet their ‘liberators’ happy to see the end of four years of brutal Nazi occupation and Vichy French collaboration!

D-Day '44 - French

D'Day - American

  • - Wearing the winter ‘Tanker’s Jacket’ with the knit collar, cuffs and waistband on top of his 2nd pattern combat trousers this tank sergeant holds a pair of military issue binoculars. Next to his right leg is a U.S. Army ‘jerrican’.
  • - This junior ‘noncom’ is carrying his M3 ‘Grease Gun’. This cheaply-made submachine gun was manufactured out of stamped and welded steel parts and looked remarkably like a mechanic’s grease gun, hence the nickname. It fired only in automatic mode and came with a 30-round straight magazine. Because of its small size it could be fitted easily inside the confined space of an M4 Sherman. Like the previous Tank Sergeant our Corporal is outfitted with the same Tanker’s uniform plus helmet and goggles.
  • - One more sergeant, but this time cradling his M1A1 Thompson Submachine Gun a simplified version of the classic Thompson SMG adopted in 1942 and a favourite of armoured vehicle crews. Next to his left foot is a pressed steel ammunition box for a 250 round belt of .30 cal machine gun ammunition.
  • - A great little figure, dressed like the other guys, and armed with the M-1911 Colt. 45 Automatic Pistol in the leather holster. This guy can kneel on different parts of the Sherman including the turret or down on the ground.
  • - Back in WW2 almost everyone smoked cigarettes and they were cheap, plentiful and supplied free of tax for the armed forces. This smoking ‘tanker’ is probably enjoying his favourite brand of ‘smokes’, Lucky Strike, in the distinctive red and white pack. Another of those very useful ammo cans helps balance the figure.
  • - This Tech 5 Corporal has just arrived from the Replacement Depot carrying a bedroll and wearing matching olive drab shirt and trousers and a brand-new shoulder holster rig and pistol which was originally supplied only to Airforce pilots but somehow got to be issued to tank crews and other U.S. Army units. How a lowly noncom got hold of this is anyone’s guess.
  • - Another lucky ‘tanker’ gets a very warm and passionate welcome from a newly-liberated pretty French maiden happy to see the last of the Germans… and the first of the Americans!
  • - During WW2 every kid in Europe loved the GIs… The ‘Yanks’ were fun, friendly and very generous with their chocolate, candy and… chewing gum. All of which had been scarce at best or simply unavailable at worst during the years of occupation. For children of all ages, especially those living in German-occupied countries, ‘liberation’ was not just about freedom but about the opportunity to taste and enjoy some of these long-lost delights that had been hidden for four long years. For many of the GIs themselves these European kids were a reminder of the families they had left back home and their own children or young relatives. This little two figure set is a reminder of that time and the happiness and joy liberation brought to one and all.
  • - During World War Two the composition of a typical U.S. Army Armoured Division was, of course, centred around its chief component – its three tank battalions. In support of the tanks were another three battalions of armoured infantry who could be moved forward using M3 Half-Tracks as well as the usual complement of jeeps and trucks. On occasion these armored infantrymen would and could ‘hitch a ride’ on any passing Sherman or other armoured vehicle heading towards the front. To that end we’re ‘reintroducing’ an old favourite 4 x man set with upgraded painting and appropriate Armored Division shoulder patches. Perfect to work with any of our two new all-metal Shermans!

D-Day '44

King Louis

From France in 1944 we travel back in time to France in the middle of the 17th Century and the reign of King Louis XIV also known as ‘The Sun King’.

This monarch was King of France from 1643 until his death in 1715. His reign of 72 years and 110 days was the longest of any European ruler in history. During his rule France became the leading European power and regularly asserted its military strength fighting three major continental wars as well as numerous other smaller conflicts inside and outside of France’s borders.

As well as providing his military leadership Louis ⅩⅣ had many other significant achievements which would go on to have a wide influence on the early modern period in the arts, science and architecture of not only France but throughout the rest of Europe.

Among his greatest achievements was the design and construction of The Palace of Versailles, his Royal residence outside Paris.

He fought alongside his half brother, Ajax in the Trojan War and is the legendary founder of the city of Salamis on Cyprus.

During the Trojan aWr, Teucer was regarded as a great archer, who loosed his shafts from behind the giant shield of his half brother Ajax the Great.

In total Teucer is recorded as having killed thirty Trojans during the war

Limbers were used when transporting cannon by horse over long distances. Attached to the gun carriage, it transformed it from two wheels to a four wheeled vehicle.

**Please remember the horses will be sold separately, as well as the artillery piece.** HORSES WILL BE RESTOCKED IN OCTOBER

In the Eighteenth Century artillery limbers played a crucial role in the movement and deployment of field artillery.

The limber was a two wheeled cart specifically designed to support the trail of an artillery piece or the stock of a field carriage, such as a caisson or travelling forge.

The artillery piece when needed to be towed was raised over the limber and then lowered with a pintle fitting into a hole in the trail.

Horses or other draft animals were harnessed in a single file to haul the limber.

Maryland Continentals


The main core of Morgan’s flying Army was a battalion of veteran Continentals. Three companies of the Maryland Line, and one company from Delaware. These were highly trained and disciplined, and formed the main line commanded by John Eager Howard. They were the best troops to engage in prolonged close combat with British regulars.

The three Maryland companies at the Battle of Cowpens were survivors from several ravaged regiments.

The First Company (Captain Richard Anderson) included survivors of the 1st and 7th Maryland.
The Second Company (Captain Henry Dobson) was formed from the 2nd, 4th and 6th Maryland.
The Third Company (Lieutenant Nicholas Mangers) included men from the old 3rd and 5th Maryland.
