The Monday before last saw von Peter himself break his glasses. He was reduced to wearing his previous generation of glasses that are of course a different prescription to that which is currently prescribed. Happy hint – always keep your prior glasses when receipting the latest pair. You will invariably need them! Don’t ask how they were broken. 🤬 Thankfully the new pair have now arrived so looking at screens, reading etc is not quite the effort it has been.
Enough of the self pity. Another series of disjointed rambles to hopefully lighten these pestilential times for The dear readership …
Front Rank Figurines are go
This “news” is nearly a week old now but for the unenlightened … Front Rank Figurines are back and available to purchase. Similar verbiage is to be found on both the Front Rank Figurines and Gripping Beast news sections …
21ST JANUARY 2022 – WEBSITE NOW OPEN
WEBSITE NOW OPEN! (But please read on….)
Good News! At last! Gripping Beast has finally completed the purchase of Front Rank!
We would like to thank Alec & Angela for their stupendous patience and we wish them a long and happy retirement.
Front Rank has now moved to Beast Towers, lock, stock and barrel. It will, however, take us a few days to get sorted and for production to begin again. In the meanwhile, you can now place your orders on the website in the normal way.
Once we have things organised, we will begin to work through the orders (this will take some days!) We will process the orders strictly in the order in which they were received.
Thank you all for your patience and some level of sanity will be restored as soon as possible

Outstanding … though von Peter himself has some reservations about the scruffy one on the far right 😇 …
The image is from the Austerlitz 2013 album as brought to the world by the photographer Thomas T. It’s well worth checking out some of his photo albums. Honest. Click for an enlarged and clearer image.
Easy to make toilet paper sea bases
It’s amazing what one stumbles upon when surfing the ‘net. An interesting video on creating sea bases for ships using toilet paper, pva glue, plaster/ wall filler or spackle if you’re American and paint. The video clip uses Kings of War Armada (fantasy) ships but sea is sea.
Until we meet again …
