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.
We have run out of the EL01 and EL02 indian elephants unarmoured bodies, they are being cast at present and Rob hopes to have some if not all ready for us at Warefare 18/19 November Reading. I have removed them from the store to avoid the obvious issues. The armoured bodies EL03 and EL04 are in stock and in the store. Rob is also casting the African elephants in resin.
