We've decided to offer some buildings and other useful stuff that we particularly like and that we think our customers may like too. The larger items will be accompanied by special "Soldiers Free" figures when you order them from us.
More Laser cut pre-painted buildings by 4Ground
The 3 new dwellings from 4Ground added to the 3 below plus the block-house constitute a good-sized settlement even before duplication.
Left to right:
New France Loft Cabin - £22.00
New France Settler's Cabin - £17.00
New England Loft Cabin - £22.00
The buildings are named for the opposing colonies along lines of the style of construction, those named "New England" being of squared-off logs laid horizontally and locked/overlapped at the corners, while the ones given the name "New France" have the timbers mostly working vertically. The two styles can be used separately or combined to give greater variety.

Log Timber Block House - £25.00
Small Blockhouses were often the first line of defence and last bastion of hope until relief, many were built at strategic locations like the banks of major waterways to observe and, if they had even a single cannon, hinder enemy movements.
A Blockhouse could be of a simple rustic construction made by local militia, but this one is much more than that; built by the regular army, a crow's nest gave even further horizons to observe and a cannon could be raised and lowered through the stout central trap door to shoot through the gun ports in any direction and at two elevations.
Orders of 2 or more buildings by 4Ground will receive a "Soldiers Free" figure of our choice.
Due to the high postal costs of delivering the Frontline Block House outside the UK, orders from overseas will now have to be requested by e-mail to enable us to advise overseas customers of the postal cost before sending a PayPal invoice. Unfortunately, ordering this item directly from the online shop will have to be restricted to UK customers.
Here's the first building added to our list, a block house ideal for a small garrison as part of a chain of outposts between forts, or as a defensive refuge for an endangered settlement. We'll be adding more soon.
French & Indian War Block House by Frontline Wargaming
Resin cast block house with lift off roof, separate upper floor and small 3 part stockade and gate. Comes unpainted, as does the specially sculpted and produced "Soldiers Free" Anglo-American Provincial soldier that comes with it when ordered from Galloping Major.
French & Indian War Block House by Frontline Wargaming with garrison of 8 Galloping Major Anglo-American Provincial Soldiers
Resin cast block house with lift off roof, separate upper floor and small 3 part stockade and gate. The block house and stockade come unpainted, as do the 8 Galloping Major Anglo-American Provincial soldiers that come with it.
The 8 man garrison unit consists of pack FIW BPT3 Anglo-American Provincials with Light Equipment, the "Soldiers Free" Colonial Officer and the specially sculpted and produced "Soldiers Free" Anglo-American Provincial soldier that comes with the block house when ordered from Galloping Major.
We've added some superb sailing vessels for use on navigable rivers and lakes as well as for coastal waters and the high seas. These are manufactured by Ainsty with resin one piece hulls, white metal parts and dowel masts. Each one comes with our specially sculpted "Soldiers Free" Sailor, see the Soldiers Free page for pictures of the figure.
Above: Sloop by Ainsty 12" long x 4 1/4" wide.
Above: Merchantman by Ainsty 14" long x 5 1/2" wide.
We'll be adding the Man of War and other items from Ainsty to the online shop soon.
