EUROPEAN CUSTOMERS, AVOID UNNECESSARY COSTS BY ORDERING FROM OUR UK DISTRIBUTOR, CALIVER BOOKS!
Knuckleduster manufactures 28mm War of 1812 wargame miniatures, as well as 28 and 40mm Old West figures. All of our products are cast in lead-free pewter, which costs a bit more to make and sell, but provides our customers with an extremely safe and durable material to work with (and who can put a price on peace of mind?).
All figures are sculpted and all samples are painted by Forrest Harris.

THE NEW BUILDINGS ARE HERE! THE NEW BUILDINGS ARE HERE!
That's right, the new Adobe buildings from TCL are loaded in the shopping cart and ready to order. There are three buildings: a simple adobe house, a fancier house with an interior wall and staircase, and a room addition kit to add variety and customize your buildings.
If you're not familiar with TCL, they are plywood (not MDF) laser-cut 28mm kits which are sturdy, have nice, deep engraving, natural-looking corners, and smell like a warm, cozy campfire. They are generously proportioned, and look very natural and to-scale with 28mm figures. They come unpainted and unassembled.
The instructions for assembly for both buildings are posted on ...
THE NEW DOWNLOADS PAGE
Which brings me to the next item of business: I'd like to announce the addition of a downloads page. Over the years, I"ve made various documents available for download; for instance, the forms from the Cowtown Creator, the wallpaper for the TCL buildings, or the campaign guide for 1812. I've collected these in one handy page, under "downloads" above.
That's it for today. If you have any questions, drop me a line or give me a call!

A new 1812 release today.
Some of the US artillery units were designated as Light Artillery, and wore uniforms that were a bit more elaborate than their cousins in the foot artillery. Here are six artillery crewmen for your Monday afternoon:
The uniforms featured three rows of buttons and braid, and a cylindrical shako with a side plume was worn long after the leather Tombstone shako was adopted. To round out the uniform, tassled hussar boots were worn rather than gaiters.
Here is the most magnificent of TCL's creations to date, a giant saloon. This beast measures 12" x 12", large enough for a gunfight or bar-room brawl to take place entirely within its walls. It features everything you would want in a high-class joint; two levels with interior detailing all around, balconies inside and out, two staircases, walls, tables, a bar, a stage, and all made from TCL's rugged plywood. The scale is just right for the larger saloons; big enough for a faro game, pool table, cancan dancers, and a fancy bar.
