I took to painting the shields as Steve at LBMS just has not had any free time at all to add new sets to the 3 we have for the large scutums(Packs BYZ01 to BYZ06). After a phone call with Adam the other day, we have decided to make a new shield that will take transfers that are already available. Once we have the shield in production and stock of the transfers we will add a pack to the store offering them together. Not perfect but for those like me who are not the best at the old painting lark, a necessary provision for now.
Adam has now completed the unarmoured bodies for the archers, both rear rank and light foot, the standing and advancing spearmen along with the officer packs.
We will add the packs over the next couple of weeks once he has the production figures ready for the mould.
Anyway here are the photos of the second phase line infantry.
I have started the long and boring task of adding the contents of our 11 year old on line store to the new platform. To date I have added the Republican Romans and Early Byzantines (I cannot take anymore tonight..lol) I will be keeping both the old store and the new one running together until the entire shop has move across. There will be slight changes in the posting/shipping rates as the two systems are not quite the same.
If you want a look at the fleggling store have a gander at
I managed to resolve the issues with the Paypal Module and our store. Time has caught up with the software and we will be replacing the current store with a new one. That will take time and I will do the prep. work behind the scenes. When it is ready I think running both at the same time may prove the way to go as we cannot transfer the data bases to the new system, there are just too many changes to make that an easy option.
Anyway the thing is working as it always did for now and we carry on as usual.
Work is progressing on the unarmoured Byzantine infantry and it now looks as if the archers will be first to appear.
From Sunday morning the online store and paypal have had a falling out. An order reaches Paypal and payment is taken but when the customer is returned to the store it says the opposite, a notice stating that Payment was not verified and to try again. We receive the payment and an email telling us that our account has been credited. The problem is that Paypal doesn’t tell out store that and thus the erroneous message. We have the details and the payment and can process the order, it is all so confusing.
I have been trying to find out why this is happening as we changed nothing on our site.
I am exploring a new more modern online store at present, this will take time to establish.
We have printed all the current orders and will progress them as usual. If you want, email us and we can do it the old way.
Sorry but I am at a loss at present as to what is going on.
