Link to Sloppy Jalopy
A common query heard at shows and on the newsgroups is whether or not a certain vehicle range is compatible with the figures of a particular manufacturer. Too often wargamers spend out good money on vehicles only to find they are too large or too small for the armies they are designed for. This problem is all the worse given the huge variation in supposedly uniform figure scales.
So now at Sloppy Jalopy we have decided to produce ranges of vehicles specifically designed to go with the leading figure ranges for selected periods.
We began in 2003 with interwar vehicles to complement the larger 28mm figures being produced for WW1, Back of Beyond and High Adventure games.
In 2004 we expanded into modern vehicles designed to complement the growing number of companies producing 28mm modern ranges.
Then in 2009 we bought Chieftain Models, formerly owned by our good friend Ian Crouch who has been responsible for designing much of the Sloppy Jalopy moderns range.
We now have a rapidly expanding catalogue of vehicles for both these periods created by some of the best designers in the business. In addition we have begun to produce a range of drivers and passengers for these vehicles.
We have lots of releases planned for both these ranges so do please keep coming back to see what's new.
We also like to hear what you would like to have on your table so let us know what you would like us to produce next. Is there a particular vehicle that would go just perfectly with your game? Is there a range of figures out there crying out for armored support? Let us know and we will see what we can do.
