Lazy admin staff, watch the skies and who was that masked man?
5th Aug 2021
There is no order update today and we won't be having one next week either, as the admin staff have selfishly decided to take a holiday.
Upon their return I do intend to flog them mercilessly in order to catch up on their work.
However, this has not stopped the flow of new releases, and this week, we have a collection of WW2 British AA Crusaders...
And to round things off we now have a rather nice M10 Wolverine available to a good home.
Moving to another place and time, (and indeed, reality), I am delighted to be able to say that we finally have received stocks of the reprinted Pony Wars rules and cards. These will initially be sent out to subscribers, but will be put on general release by the end of August. To mark this occasion, we have some very nice Pony Wars models to release, but you will have to wait a couple of weeks before you can order them. Here is a taster...
Same Baccus Day, same Baccus Time, same Baccus Channel…
This week you can claim victory if you hold anything up to and including order number #17475.
(As always, there will be a few orders prior to this that didn’t make it, but they will be on their way next week.) We are slowly but steadily reducing the time between receipt of an order to it being posted. The aim is to eliminate the need for these weekly updates on progress, but we’ll keep them going for as long as we feel they are needed, or you lot get bored of them,
So what News do we have this week? To start off, we have got another group of Second World War releases, and this time it’s some British bits and pieces. To start with, there’s a Staghound MkI, adding to our fast-growing selection of British armoured cars.
Yes, I know, it's yet another British armoured car, and given that fact, it’s only appropriate that we now spice things up a bit and add this rather spiffing British Recce HQ group to the collection. (Many thanks to Wing Commander Luddite to the lovely brush work.)
Finally, we get what I can only describe as a, ‘Really Useful’ tank in the form of a Valentine AVLB.
While we are on the subject, we have had a major rethink in how we package and present our larger packs for the period and will be announcing some substantial changes in the next few weeks.
On other fronts, we are anticipating the release of the Pony Wars rules by mid-August and are preparing a nice selection of new releases to accompany that occasion. As usual, these will be more Hollywood than History, but to be honest, in this case, who really cares?
The re-sculpted Great Northern War Swedes are nearing completion, and to accompany the new figures we will also be releasing revised flag sheets, featuring completely new designs using vector graphics for clearer, sharper details. In addition, we’ll be expanding the coverage to include garrison and reserve units all of whom found themselves at the sharp end of this monumental struggle.
There is a whole batch of new Rubicon 1/56th scale (28mm) kits coming soon.
These new kits have made it to US customs and once they clear customs, we will be able to secure our share of the new goodness.
It could be a few days, it could be a week... but they are definitely on the way.
Stay tuned for details in the coming days.
PS, you may notice that there are few items in this batch that get us beyond WWII and into other conflicts.
