Estimated times for delivery of orders

Still working away on my own, Adam is producing the Byzantines with 2 more commands to be added today. I have been getting a lot of emails as to when packages will arrive, the answer is I do not really know but it appears to be around 7-10 days within the UK(sometimes much quicker), 3 weeks to Australia, New Zealand and the US with European orders around 14 days all from date of posting.

Production is running around 5 working days behind date of order being placed, this varies given the amount coming in and the necessity to create the new moulds which takes hours away from casting etc.

If you have any concerns I will do my best to answer them.

Stay safe.

Delays etc.

I am working on my own due to the current advice. There have been record orders received. I am doing the posting on Wednesdays and Fridays to reduce the times I must leave the house. This will result it delays that I can do nothing about. I will do my best to get the figures out to you asap.

New packs will be added when I get the time to do so.

Keep calm, paint and stay safe.


My latest additions to my Early Byzantine LADG force

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.

Stay safe folks.

Posting and CV19

I was unaware of any restrictions on posting around the world until this morning. The link below takes you to the Royal Mail site where details on overseas posting are published.

Please check your location for the latest position.

If you are in a country that cannot receive at present we will refund the order upon your request, if you want we will hold the order until things ease.

Stay safe.

Current state of things Aventine

Folks I work from home so will not be slowed by this disaster that has fallen upon us all. Today was St Patricks day so no post here but I will be out tomorrow with the boxes.

Adam is also busy on the next wave of Byzantine infantry. He is finishing the archers, they will come in several forms, rear rank unarmoured, light armoured and skirmishing.

We are also pondering separate heads for them as this will increase the span of years and region they will suitable for(even Late Romans).

Anyway, stay safe and look after each other.

New Store has begun.

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 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

and click on the store. There isn’t a lot on store front yet but you will see the way we hope to go.

Any errors spotted please let us know, thanks.
