We Are Operational Now

I have packed several orders this evening and sent out the Paypal notifications, so it appears that we are all set up to receive and ship orders as of today. The first ever shipment is going to Australia, interestingly enough. International orders can use a Priority Mail Small Box that can hold up to 4 pounds of goods, which is a lot of miniatures for a flat rate postage cost (considering that 24 to 36 figures only weigh about 11 ounces). So if you want to amortize the flat rate shipping on international orders, it pays to order larger quantities.

As mentioned earlier, we now have the American Militia and the British Light Infantry in stock.

The British Guards figures are at the caster's and hopefully we should start receiving figures within a couple of weeks. So keep checking in on this site for any updates. I 'm really looking forward to seeing how The Guards look first hand and plan to paint up a unit for myself once the castings are in hand.
