No calendar production for 2015

After careful consideration and due to production costs and market conditions, we will not be producing our line of calendars this year. Hopefully conditions will improve and we can resume calendar production the following year. My apologies to those disappointed by this difficult decision (I am certainly one of those people who are disappointed). —Tom

The M1 Does MY Talking

It will come as no surprise to you when I say that our 2nd Amendment rights are under attack, from our own “freely elected” government. To express my thoughts on this issue, I have created a new tin sign that leverages an iconic poster from the Second World War. The original headline remains intact. The […]

Sherman tank fans, I haven’t forgotten you

Work is proceeding (and no, not at a snail’s pace either) on the “Sherman Family Photo Album” series.  I don’t have a definite release date yet, but there is a certain international armor modeling and preservation society convention in April 2014 that has been targeted as a possibility.  That is all I will say about […]

Armor Plate Press and Frontline General

I recently helped out Byron Collins of Collins Epic Wargames with some WWII footage to promote his new game release and its Kickstarter video. Byron produces a card-based game called Frontline General, a WWII infantry combat simulation for your physical desktop, not your computer. Armor Plate Press is also providing still images for the game and its packaging.  […]

Japanese Tanks & Anti-tank Weapons of World War II

There have been far too few photo resources available to AFV historians, researchers and modelers that illustrate the Japanese Empire’s use of armored vehicles during World War II. I hope to change that with this new photo-study that looks like it will be about 300 pages in length and contain more than 600 images. The […]

The 2014 Armor Plate Press catalog is available for download

Whenever I pull together the catalog for the coming year, it shows the aspirational quality of this little publishing company.
