    Arriving by airmail in a sturdy cardboard box with a color photo of the finished figure on the box top this figure was well wrapped in bubble wrap envelope with the small parts sealed inside a clear zip-lok bag to insure against loss during shipping.

    A really beautifully sculpted kit from the Napoleonic era. Some casting pour blocks need to be easily removed. Highly recommended.

    I received this figure last week from Stuart at Stormtroopers and would like to add that not only is it a great figure, the service from Stormtroopers is outstanding and they are definitely one of the best figure companies around today. A companion figure? Another confirmed sale!!!
