We have had an issue over the weekend that caused the online store to stop receiving notifications from Paypal. This has been sorted but required a rollback of the database. This has resulted in the loss of several new accounts created after the rollback point. No order details or payments have been lost, we have all in hand ready to cast and post. If you find your account is gone please start fresh by creating the account again. We can send copies of the order details that have been lost from the missing accounts if you need to check them over.
We do not know what caused this issue, it hasn’t occurred before and seems to have been a corrupted file.
We have started remaking the moulds for the Phalanx figures, to date the unarmoured headless PH28,Linothorax PH29 and the 2 commands have been completed PH13+14.(Update – PH1-12 also now done.) This has allowed us to make small changes to the figures. The two commands have changed to contain 4 useful figures ie only 1 musician instead of 2.
The rest of the figures should be complete by end of this week start of next. Meanwhile the mounted and dismounted command figures and the seleucid cavalry are progressing well.
Adam has been at me to do Ptolemaic phalangites for some time so when he had completed the later style linothorax he had to have some. That said they will do all the Later successor armies. The character pack is also useful in the imitation legionary units, the Thorakitai units etc.
To all, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We will be easing down towards the end of the week and will start back again in the New Year. All orders received before Wednesday will be posted before we stop, those after that will have to wait. Adam has had a few health issues that has slowed his sculpting down so we have missed our estimated release dates for the Seleucid cavalry later phalangites and advancing/attacking thureophoroi, they are still progressing and nothing has been cut. Once they have been completed we will start on the Byzantines.
Well the weekend was fun if tiring but we got the chance to speak to loads of people and show off our figures. Rob at Hysterical Games produced two big boxes of resin elephants. He told me he had tried a different way while casting them, I have to say that the first batch were very good but this last lot are even better. We also have the Africans cast in resin so they are also back on the store. Orders will suffer a delay as we are knackered and I have a family funeral to attend tomorrow so there will be a few days added to the usual delivery times.
