I have decided to extend the "1776 Deal" (12 figures for $17.76) and the "1776 Grand Deal" (84 figures for $117.76) through the end of this month, July 31, 2012. So if you missed out on your chance to purchase Fife & Drum miniatures under the discount plan, then fear not, there is still time to snap up a good bargain or three.
I am working on getting some of the artillery pieces and gun crews painted over this weekend so that I can post some color pictures of how the new items look when painted. So keep checking back in at this site.
I just saw my first Fife and Drum models at the Historicon convention. They were brought to my booth by a good customer of ours, and I was pleased to finally get a look at them.
While I don't know Der Alte Fritz, I thought a bit of "testimonial" in support of this range might help.
In short- I really liked them. The porpotions are quite spot on and something I have been wondering about for some years. They remind me of the first time I saw the Pax Britanica line, now know as RSM many years ago. These figures are much better but renedered in a relaistically proprtioned style like those.
They are also historically accurate, including the equipment.
I'll leave it to others to decide if they fit in with other ranges or not, but they are very nice miniatures in and of themselves.
If I had any personal time to spend on the hobby I'd happily get some of these to paint and play some games with.
With this "deal" going on its the prefect time to give them a run. I don't think you will be dissapointed.
Thats my two cents for whatever it's worth. For the record, I am not affiliated with Fife and Drum in anyway and in fact run Architects of War, the Offical Distributor for Perry Miniatures and many other ranges.
Great work Fife and Drum. I wish you much success.
