|Governor William Shirley|
I am on my annual required two weeks of vacation right now and I hope to use some of that time to clean up a few things on this blog. For starters, I have added a box on the left hand side of the page to show some of the Links germane to AWI topics. This way, I can come directly to this page (and you can too, of course), and use it as an entry point to other useful AWI blogs and web pages. Over time, this collection of links will grow to a sizable amount.
I am in the process of painting one each of every figure in the Fife & Drum range so that we can take color pictures of the figures (front and back) for posting on our new web site. The web site will enable you to purchase figures on line without having to go through the current, more cumbersome ordering process. Stay tuned for a further announcement on the web site in about another 1-2 months. I hope to have a big web site roll out in say, October 2012, along with some special items added to the range just for the web site roll out.
Finally, thank you to everyone who took advantage of the 1776 Deals that we ran in the month of July. The metal was literally flying out the door as we had to keep sending in restocking orders to keep up with the demand. Thank you to those of you who had the patience to wait on some backorders. These were promptly filled when the new stock arrived. Our policy is to try to fill the order as completely as possible and to back order the few miscellaneous items. All back orders are shipped postage free as I don't think that it is fair for you to pay twice for postage.
