New Fife & Drum Logo Unveiled!

Fife & Drum logo created by Mr. Henry Hyde

Here is what the new logo for the Fife & Drum Miniatures range will look like. I want to thank Henry Hyde (editor of Battlegames Magazine) for his fine work in creating this logo. It really evokes the feeling of the 18th Century and the AWI/American Revolution period that is the focus of our figures.

You will start seeing our logo on The Miniatures Page (TMP) in our new banner ads as well as advertising in  the various wargame magazines.

By the way, the 1776 Deals will expire on July 31, 2012 so if you want to take advantage of the 18% and 22% discounts on the regular 12-figure and 84-figure deals, respectively, then get your order in today. Time is running out so don't put this off if you intend to order some of our deals.


  1. You do realize, of course, that you will now need to have Richard do a special set of of these three as figures.

  2. Great logo, Der Alte. Is that you with the drum? ;-)

  3. That is a nice looking logo. Catches the eye. :)

  4. @pcohn: well, now that you mention it, guess which figures are on the work bench right now. He, he,he.


  5. I'm the crazy looking guy with the fife. :)

  6. Hi,
    I am new to this blog but I am already finding great products and information.

    I have a suggestion about the new logo and the probable appearance of some amazingly similar figures very soon. Why not have a painting contest centered on the three figures with emphasis on the realism of the fife player. It judging could be done at the SYWA convention with the sole judge being our host. :-)
