Interesting.
If their Spanish are as good as their Spanish-American War figures,
we are in for a treat.

I've dealt directly with 1898 and never had no problems.We do have someone in the US that carries them now but I can probably order from 1898 and get my order before the stock arrives in the US.Of course I don't have to deal with the VAT as our friends across the pond does.

That is good news. If they are as good as their Span-Am range these provide be the benchmark. Might be enough to rejuvenate my plans to to the Luso-Dutch wars in Brazil.

I agree. This is good news. I think there's a real gap in the market for well-sculpted Spanish TYW figures. I do hope that some are in casual poses.
