While I'm taking a couple of days off from the workshop and from order processing (keeping a careful eye on Fenris Hound Oscar after his recent cancer op!) I'm trying to line up some new releases and other stuff.

First up, New on pre-order from our Forge Of Ice import range: Pterro-men of Azor. Sculpts by Des Hanley. Set of three super fine resin models for 28mm at reduced price ahead of their arriving in the workshop later this month.

One of the long-term jobs Alex Bates at FOI and I have been planning for a while is to produce Forge Of Ice stuff locally in the UK for the EU market and this is the first set of models from that schedule. We'll be gradually adding more of the FOI range to the Fenris production moulds, so that ultimately, UK and EU customers will no longer have to wait for international delays to our restocks. In an ideal world, all being equal, I'm aiming to start a similar process with our other Boutique ranges, down the line.

And talking of pre-orders, this week sees the end of the deal price on our new African Hunting Dogs sets. Metal stock arrives any time now and from that point these will be full RRP.
