:o No not taking the thingy.

Jazz Age Imperialism is just beginning to be sculpted.

Moari Wars stuff being worked on.

Moderns will get some packs, hopefully before Christmas.

SCW/BCW will get a  some stuff as well.

More ECW due for release over the next two months.

Busy, busy, busy  ;)

There was talk of figures for the NWF - have they been shelved - I hope not.

Nice figures BTW.

Beatiful figures.  Problem is that they are pretty expensive and up against the Warlord starter armies in plastic, which work out around 30p a foot figure, so can't justify it.

Now if you were to add more colonial stuff, like NWF, Indian Mutiny, Sikh Wars etc, that would open my wallet!

Well, a 6kg bag of boiled rice is cheaper than a nice joint of beef and fresh veg, but I know what I'd rather eat!  ;)

Well I've received my packs, and have to say they are superb  :)

A wee bit stiff in the arm in one or two poses, but I can overlook that because the fineness of the detail and casting is exemplary, and they simply ooze period authenticity.

And they're at the taller end too, so should fit very well with my extensive Bicorne / Renegade ECW collection. That said, they are defintiely not as chunky, so don't think they will be entirely incompatible with some of the slighter build ranges like TAG or the Perrys.

I can't wait to paint a few. if only I didn;t have about 150 other figures already in the queue...  ::)

Maybe an LPL entry or two though, next time round  ;)

Saw them at Colours at the weekend and the detailing is sublime, especially on the tassets  8)

As we've mentioned, some of the posing is a bit off but I would imagine that will change with the newer figures.

cheers

Very true, but could you afford to?  ;D
