    Nice looking piece, but because of your association with Mr. Burton I will wait until you gain some kudos in the figure world before I commit.

    Bill well thank you for your reply. What Mr Burton has to do with this I don’t know but it’s you’re decision. As far as kudos goes we have nothing to prove, our range will do the talking. But thank you taking the time to post

    This one caught my eye on PF some time back. A colorful chap; should be fun to paint and the north African skin tones will be a challenge as well.

    Hi clrsgt happy you remember him, he will be out shortly along with the 1st Rhode Island bust. They both will challenge the painter as you have both the Middle Eastern and black African skin tones as well as the very colourful uniform of the Spahi and the white of the Rhode Island.

    We have to say we are very much looking forward to seeing them painted in the near future.

    Keep knocking out nice pieces and (equally important) provide good & reliable customer service and there's no reason why you shouldn't be. Naming no names but that's where one or two other "ventures" have fallen down, the result being tarnished reputations of those involved.

    Not really my period of interest this one, but Offo is a talented sculptor and it is a nice piece. Will be interested to see what else you have lined up (some full figures maybe?) and how it all pans out.

    Forgot to ask: Are you planning on attending any shows as traders?

    Hi Steve. Thank you for your comments but don’t see the relevance to other ventures. This is our first venture and as we are about to release our first kits we can only do our upmost to make sure the customer is happy.

    We have a number of releases in the pipeline,3 of them will be 75mm foot figures. But we are going to get the bust out first which we hope to do shortly. We have employed the talents of a number of sculptors and will be producing our first 3D sculpt soon.

    As to shows yes we have asked for a table at the white rose show near York but have had no reply as yet. Maybe we are too late to the party.

    I hope that answers your questions, I will repeat we are not her to be compared to any other company past or present we follow our own path and those that wish to follow are more than welcome to do so.
