    Hi Folks

    Available now is our new release

    PPST38 Officer, 17th Lancers, Elands River, Boer War ,1901
    Sculpted by my very talented friend Carl Reid.
    Kit includes 2 Heads.
    1/9th Scale Resin.
    Price £32 , special price on the first 30 kits via the website.

    https://stormtrooperminiatures.co.u...r-Boer-War-1901/p/132324853/category=16140454

    The kit marks a change for us. New artwork and coming more inline with what we do at Troop54.
    Kits are priced more competitively inline with market changes especially in light of Recasting activity which shows no sign of changing.

    We have been recast even more and after a lot of trying to stop it and hinder their activity it is as popular as ever. We have decided to carry on with stormtroopers for now with new kits coming and more changes planned for later this year.

    The first batch of 30 are cast and will be priced at £32 until the end of march.

    Many thanks for looking

    Stuart

    Hi Stu, a cracker from Carl.
    The direction, alignment and pricing strategy youv'e outlined seems a logical direction to take.
    Cheers

    Now that I like!!!
    I don't normally "do" busts but I think I'll make an exception with this one (perhaps you can get Jimbo to knock out a pair of legs for him?)

    Good luck with kicking out the pirates from our hobby...

    I think it's an excellent sculpt.....I also think Carl Reid would have surely had a job working for "Chilmark"pewter in it's heyday. Great work both Carl and Stu.

    Hi Stu

    That's a great choice of subject , like the pose , based on the central figure this picture

    On my want list ....would possibly open up the holster flap a little more

    Hope we see box art on this sometime ...although Stormtroopers sell themselves IMO

    Thanks for sharing
