I forgot to photograph the grey figures for the online store before I painted them, so here they are in my best wargaming standard..lol
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.
Keith and Adam
Steve has completed his Pyrrhic army for now and has agreed to let us add the link to his blog.
We have completed the cavalry for now, Thorakitai, Thureophoroi and Thracian next. After that we will complete the Hellenistics for now by adding Seleucid Companions, Agema and line cataphracts. Once they are finished it will be the Early Byzantines (yes I know we have all been waiting for them..lol).
This batch of cavalry come in mixed armours and mail with a command set. The variation is completed by using the different heads sets. Adam designed the figures to represent the troops gathered up in Southern Italy by both the Romans and Carthage, they will also prove useful in successor armies as Italian Merc. When the Attic helmets are added they become Carthaginians, the unit deal is a mix of armour to represent the spoils of war. If you want more mail then the packs are available in mail or mixed armour.
Just to let you know that I will be away from Friday the 18th August until the start of the week 28th August. This will mean a delay in the dispatching of any orders placed during that time. Adam will be around but he usually doesn’t look at emails or orders.
Adam delivered the Breastplate armoured cavalry with cloaks yesterday. They are now in production and the store has the photos of the packs. The figures are headless which allows us to expand on their usage by selecting the sets of heads that go with each pack, add a shield and a spear rather than a lance and they change again. They are a direct replacement for the old PYR13-14+15 packs and we added seleucid, Ptolemaic, Macedonian sets as well. Anyway here are the photos.
