Welcome to the Galloping Major Wargames website.

 UPDATE on the NEW WEBSITE:

The new website should prove to be a big improvement with easier navigability and access to products and viability of use from mobile phones. It is now almost complete with the shop pages active and running on Paypal with most products in place*. A few adjustments remain to be finished over the coming days.

* The .com domain is yet to be moved over but I've been building the new site on: www.gallopingmajorwargames.co.uk where you will be able to access it.

If you should experience any difficulties, please message me on lwcawkwell@aol.com 

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT to all customers:

Following problems between our current host company and Paypal, we are at the moment setting about building a new website with a different host company, which will be a big improvement all round. HOWEVER, access to our current email address has been interrupted, which we think we can expect to continue until we have our new website up and running. The online shop pages continue to be viewed, but orders are still unable to be placed via the shop. Temporarily for orders or any other enquiries please either email me on lwcawkwell@aol.com or message me through our facebook page: Galloping Major Ltd Wargames, and I'll send you a Paypal invoice. If you have emailed me recently, please forward your email to the aol address. Thank you for your support, Lance.

 We're working from home as always, we continue to send out orders, as usual.

Please send your orders by email until further notice

We are currently experiencing a problem within the system of our website which has resulted in customers' orders failing to complete. 

We are working with our host company to resolve this issue. 

Here is what we are doing to bypass this problem, instead of ordering in the usual way via the pages of the Online Shop on the website, go to the Online Shop and make yourself a list of what you would like to order, then email it to me on: mail@gallopingmajorwargames.com so that we can send you a Paypal invoice.

Please make sure to add your full postal address (including existing customers) to your email order to help to speed up the process.

Best Wishes,

Lance

We set out with our 28mm French & Indian War range to create the sort of range we'd have loved to be able to buy: well researched with attention to correct period detail and feel, no "generic muskets", and no "generic Indians". We've been particularly delighted therefore, to find we've been getting some excellent reviews on "Flintlock and Tomahawk":

Canadian Irregulars

 "Galloping Major... This looks like being a well-researched and executed range that will set the bench-mark for the French and Indian wars. It's about time someone did some decent Miliciens... "

 Galloping Major French and Indian War figures

"This new range of 28mm figures are impressive. The sculptor obviously knows the period's 'material culture' well as they all have appropriate weapons like the fusil de chasse carried by the new Canadian Militia figs. No-one has really done decent Miliciens up til now and these are the best I've seen..."

Galloping Major Miliciens

"One of the drawbacks of a lot of F&I ranges tend to be the irregulars - usually the designer has some misplaced idea about coureurs de bois that look like Davey Crockett so it's particularly reassuring to see these Miliciens from Galloping Major looking spot on and in good poses too. Weaponry all correct - I am looking forward to seeing more of what promises to be a range to collect."

Flintlock and Tomahawk is a new and growing resource for:

"American warfare 1690-1815 in popular culture, art, in miniature and in movies."

Galloping Major Ltd is a company run by military history enthusiasts to design and produce 28mm figures and associated products for discerning wargamers and collectors.

28mm Iroquois Mohawk Warriors

Our ranges will continually expand, to provide the breadth, depth and choice that we believe are essential to building outstanding units, armies and collections. At Galloping Major the introduction of new ranges will not signal the abandoning of further expansion of existing ones, but these will continue to be added to "in parallel".

28mm Woodland Indians  

 All our 28mm models are supplied as unpainted pewter castings.

We are providing painting guides for the various troop types, making additional use of the exhaustive research that goes into creating the models to assist with getting them ready to take the field. "Painting Mohawk Warriors","Painting Canadian Militia" and "Painting Huron Warriors" are available on the Painting Guides page.

As a thank you for your custom, we'll send out an additional special model with every order of four packs or more. For more details see the Soldiers Free page.
