Hi everyone, apologies for not being on recently, been a little busy what with floods, broadband going down, and then straight back into manic-mode with the day job.

One more day of craziness (ie tomorrow) and then I will be in a position to work my way through all, the PM and email back log.

On the plus side, I have some new goodies currently being worked upon, so will have an update in the next day or so.

Thanks again for your patience.

 :)

I don't think anybody holds it against you.

We've all seen the news, I think, and floods are force majeure, per se.

I'm just looking forward to see whatever new stuff you're getting done (although I'm not really gong to get a lot of it, unless I reboot my interest in post-apoc/zombiecalypse gaming).
Ask at the LAF, and answer shall thy be given!

We just thought you were basking in your new riverside property.

Glad your back, and looking forward to seeing the new goodies.

Cheers

A quick update, and apology to anyone that has been trying to get hold of me recently.

I've been having some major problems with my email account, which has only been exacerbated by moving house, and the subsequent lack of broadband, wifi or even a mobile signal - I've inadvertently bought a house in the nineteenth century....  :?

I hope to have the situation fixed this week, at which point I will reply to anyone that had been trying to contact me regarding the Apoc Isle project.

Thanks again for your patience.

Re: AKULA's Apocalypse Isle Miniatures - I'M BACK
« Reply #264 on: October 02, 2016, 02:14:58 PM »
Well I'm back.... it fair to say that the last 9 months or so have been challenging to say the least. First of all the floods around York, then a protracted housemove that saw everything in storage for much longer than expected, and then most recently my sister passing away suddenly and very unexpectedly at the age of 48.

I'm sure you will understand when I say that I've had my mind on other things, but to be honest I'm keen to get back into the hobby for a change of pace!

First up, I have just received a restock of everything from Griffin, including of course the lovely 1/55th scale landrover that comes with all sort of goodies... a whole bunch of stowage, 3 x GPMGs and a separate roof meaning that you can customise your fleet.  Crew are available to purchase separately.





Details of everything that is available, plus photos can be found on the following link:

http://apoc3.blogspot.co.uk

The good news is that I have significant plans for more vehicles, and figures, but of course could do with a few more sales in order to fund getting the next wave (and it will be quite a wave) cast up......  :D

If you are interested and would like a price list, please email me at akulasarmies@outlook.com and include your postal address so I can provide an idea of postage costs also.

Sorry to hear the loss of your sister unexpectedly even more so, I hope your hobby is bringing some ease to your life through this time.

I would be interested in getting some of the land rovers for sure, also more vehicles in the works any clues ?

I'll email you for a list and glad to see you back.

Sad to hear of your loss but glad to hear you are returning to the scene.

You must have had a terrible time, but it is good to have you back.
Back from the dead, almost.
