A&M has gained a strong following for their Donnington ’New Era’ ranges; an ever evolving collection of high quality 15mm metal miniatures for the Ancient/Medieval periods. Each range offers a comprehensive choice of troop types for which most have variants. Current releases include: 100 Years War, Wars of the Roses, Swiss, Burgundians, Low Countries, Feudal Period (Europe, the Crusades, Arabs, Muslims and Andalusians), Anglo-Saxons/Danes, Normans, Vikings, Norse Irish, Rus, and some Asiatic Horsemen. To finish your army there’s an excellent selection of camp and baggage models as well as ‘Battleflags’, a fully researched collection of flag sheets that will really bring your army to life.
The much loved Donnington 'Original' ranges will also be on display as will be the full range of figures and models from Xyston Miniatures.
To complete A&M’s offering, they provide a painting service of some repute. Just as a number of players taking part in the competitions have done already..... give them an army list and they’ll do the rest..... and don’t forget to order your Baggage Camp too!
Stock is limited at Britcon, so to avoid disappointment, why not pre-order your miniatures via A&M’s eShop for collection at the event.

Hi my name is Alan Rudd and I set up Hoka Hey Wargaming back in 2011 to make handmade wargame scenery for the various scales. Scenery starter sets, TPP’S ( Terrain Piece Package System), Consist of River, Road, 10-15 mm Field sets , 20 -28 mm Field sets, Cornfields, Woods and trees can be purchased too. Extra items can be purchased separately and more items are being added all the time. I also sell a range of plastic storage boxes as well as magnetic and steel paper and some Javis products.
Over the years, I have acquired some figure ranges – 28mm Elizabethans, 28 mm Border Reivers and 28 mm ECW. I also purchased, Timeline Miniatures and that has given me a large range of MDF Laser cut products. I will continue to grow the range. I have made a nice model of Rorkes Drift in 10mm scale and have displayed this at a couple of shows as a participation game. I have also staged, “ The Little Big Horn “ in 10mm. There are also Resin Buildings to go with the Border Reivers, which can do for other periods too. I am also a stockist of the Mortem et Gloriam range of rules and accessories and they will be available from my stand at Britcon.
New items are always being added so please visit my new website !
