Culloden Wargames Day

Whilst it may be a log way to travel ( at least it is for me), I shall be attending the above event on the 11th October at the Culloden visitor centre.
Here's the link
Prof. Duffy will be there and my trade stand shall hopefully attract him especially if I have the personality figures cast by then. :)
If you do decide to go and want any figures please pre.order, get your 10% discount so contact me direct with your requirements.

The Fontenoy Range

Just a short update, as stated earlier I have placed my flag firmly in the 1740's and as we press on with the '45 I also want to offer up some additional figures.
Bearing in mind within the '45 range there will be Dutch etc I have decided to also look at releasing figures that will expand the French and English armies around the time of Fontenoy.

The Fusiliers de Morliere will be released in the near future, I'm looking at adding Horse Guard Grenadiers for the British alongside the release of the Jacobite horse - most of which of course will serve as French Cavalry.
To that end over the next couple of weeks I will create a new tab for the Fontenoy range and list packs from the '45 that are suitable for this and also list the new packs as they become available.

Looking at the French Garde as the next release for this!
