New range of TYW from Russian manufacturer
« on: December 29, 2017, 03:26:24 PM »
From the photos on their Facebook page Avanpost are starting a Thirty Years War range

I have some of their Napoleonics and they are some of the best detailed castings I have seen

I wonder what is the easiest way to buy these miniatures for someone living in the UK.

I am in the UK and have ordered from them in the past no problems.

I've ordered just a few of the TYW figures. I can see that the sculpts are excellent, but I want to see how they look next to some of my existing figures before buying too heavily. I'm told they'll take at least a couple of weeks to arrive.

I want to order too, did you bought them via facebook?  Please make a comparison pic when they arrive!

No. I e-mailed them at [email protected] They e-mailed me back a page of pictures of their figures. I e-mailed them what I wanted, they gave me a price and a Paypal account and I paid via Paypal.

What material are these figures made of?  They just look too smooth/clean for metal.  And what price for UK buyers?

Ingram: I ordered TYW figures and they're made of polyurethane resin. I think I've read somewhere that with the Napoleonics you have the option of metal or resin, but that may be wrong. I ordered some infantry and most were 1.70 but one was 1.85. P & p was 6.95.

Orctrader: the page of photos which Avanpost sent to me is taken from Facebook, so sorry, I don't have any.

My figures have arrived at our house this morning. I'll look at them a bit later. I placed the order on 30 December, which makes it 16 days to delivery. Considering how far away the figures came from, and that the Orthodox Christmas was in the intervening period, I'm very pleased by this. I've had a slower response from certain UK manufacturers.
