Lockdown Deals

In these very strange times that we live in many people are suffering from being stuck at home and listening to the doom and gloom on the television and radio and of course social media. Added to this many people have economic issues due their work being disrupted.

Empress Miniatures can do little to help or support our customers other than continue to ship out our toys as fast as we can and many customers have mentioned that we are helping their mental state so that's great. Added to this we are still selling the NHS charity figure and donating to the Nurses Charity.

However we have thought of a small way to help people in general. We do get quite a lot of odd and sod's figures that build up over the years. Usually these simply return to the melting pot although I have always been a bit sad about that. Therefore we are going to sell one off packs of figures. Each pack of figures are as in the picture and there will only be one of each so when its gone it will not be repeated. These packs offer customers a reasonably logical unit to collect and a good chance to perhaps but a period that you might want to try out.

The packs are significantly discounted. These will be constantly added to so if you cannot see the period you are interested in just keep looking because it will appear at some point.

First packs are largely Vietnam so you may be interested. First come first served.

Some examples.

Todays release is VIETNAM NAVY SEALS.

6 figures in this particular team. They are carrying examples of the weapons that were commonly carried. Plus some are wearing LEVI jeans which was also common for Navy SEAL's.

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT IN THE PICTURE.

1) Carrying an AK47 was reasonably common so that the noise it made firing was not specifically alarming to the enemy. The figure is aiming a Colt Commander pistol with suppressor.
2) M60 LMG with a helicopter ammunition pannier in his back pack. This field modification enables heavy and constant fire is necessary.
3) M16. Wearing LEVIS.
4) M16 radio operator (RTO) throwing a coloured smoke grenade. Wearing LEVIS.
5) Carrying a LAWS and Sawn down pump action shotgun. Using a Stoner LMG with 150 round drum magazine. Wearing LEVIS.
6) M16 with attached grenade launcher.
Moving forward we will be releasing versions of these guys in an LSSC assault boat.
