New Metal? + Short Break

Firstly I am away Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week the 5th July to 7th July, this will add a few days to the processing times of all orders. On the subject of orders, we have experienced an increase in the number being received, this is a good thing for us but will mean that the turnaround times will slip a bit, we hope to have all orders out within 4 days of their receipt.

New Metal

We have been trying lead free pewter recently, some of you may have noticed some of the figures being a lighter colour and ringing when shaken, that would be the pewter. Why change, well we have been noticing an increase in the number of blow holes when using the old metal, we have managed to adjust things to prevent most but it is still an issue on the production side. The Pewter is more expensive but casts a lot cleaner. Once all the old stock figures and metal has been used we will be running 100% pewter, until then it will be a mix.

 

Cheers

Republican Mounted Officers

Aventine Mounted Republican Roman Officers

We have revisited the mounted officers for the Republican Romans, Adam has sculpted them to go with the newer set of Republican Cavalry, they have new heads and different poses etc. They are also supplied with new horses which will now go into the Republican cavalry with the existing RRH1+2 sets. All but the standard bearer in wolfskin come with separate heads, each pack will have 5 different heads which will allow the figures to have an earlier or later period styling. Many will suit mounted Romans well beyond the Republican period.
