We shouldn't be surprised when we say "Gringos have done it again!" Another range? Great. I've only just got over the shock/pleasure of seeing the Murat figure (and hopefully new Napoleonic range), and here we have the Aztecs released.  What a great jaguar Ged - really well sculpted and should be a great welcome addition to those who've seen "Apocalypto".

Don't know where you get these great sculptors from - but keep the great figures coming

Best wishes with the Aztecs    DaveL

Ged,

Sorry to be the lone voice of dissent, but are your figures also going to come with proper maquahuitls?
"This I have known ever since I stretched out my fingers to the abomination within that great gilded frame; stretched out my fingers and touched a cold and unyielding surface of polished glass."

A quick Google search will reveal hundreds of examples. Here's a start:

It may be too late to modify the sculpts, but the hole at the handle end of the weapon's shaft had a leather or sisal strap that went through it and then around the warriors' wrist. This was a further precaution against dropping the weapon during the battle.

If you are making separate weapons, please consider the tepoztopilli, or slashing spear. Here are some high level warriors armed with tepoztopilli from the Codex Mendoza:

Looking forward to your output in 2014. Also, any idea if you will be getting a distributor for North America? Happy Holidays.
