    Hi Noel,
    ordered the set in April - nothing so far. According to the CEO there are currently delays due to changes in the production. It is unfortunate that the communication to the customers leavesb so much to be desired.
    That is all know...
    Cheers, Martin

    I get mine some weeks ago,waiting from Dezember until May......from my order is a sword from the mercenary/30 Years War and the figure of the Irish galloglas missing.I send a photograph of the parcel,write some lines and.....last Tuesday a FedEx-parcel with the two figures arrived.I think they are too little in their company and things grew over their heads...........

    Ordered mine in December and no sign of figures yet, I keep a eye on PF about how others are receiving theirs or not as the case may be, I chose to remain silent for many months but thought it was time to contact the company to try and nudge them in my direction, I eventually did receive some apologetic emails outlining the problems that have plagued the production and delivery of the Warband set and I tend to believe it, the last email that I got several weeks ago was very positive stating that my order would be posted on Monday minus one figure that would follow as a separate package when it was available, however there was no notification from FEDEX that they have a package for me so I contacted the company and asked them to confirm that the order was on route to me as they had stated but no reply so I can only wait in hope.
    As I stated in a previous post the last thing we want to do is torture Jose to the extent that he just starts posting poor quality figures out to get people of his back so I am prepared to put my trust in him and give him a little more time so sort this out.

    I'm not torturing anyone I trust him as well just hadn't heard anything for months

    I'm still waiting for my set of Paladin + the King. I understood the problems, I think almost all clients did it, José was very polite in his answers, but there are sometimes a lot of good silence pauses.
    I hope that everything be just fine for everyone, surelly their Crusader line was a huge expected project, the quality didn't dissapoint those happy to have already the figurines in their hands, but the communication seems a little complicate.

    Just wanted to let you know that my order of this set (Order #1183: paid for on April 15th) arrived today after receiving an email from Jose`three days ago with a tracking number of Fedex announcing the shipment.
    The castings look very nice and crisp - some done in Great Britain - some done in Spain. During shipment there was just one very minor damage (one cross guard of the sword hilt of "The King" was broken off) that could be fixed with ease and there is one distortion of one casting (the head of "The Paladin" with open visor shows a distortion of the lower jaw and lip due to a casting seam of the moulds running across the face) that needs a bit more effort to fix. At very few parts you can notice a slight loss of detail where the moulds met but in general the casting is excellent and shows structures of the different materials of the clothing and damages of the armor which gives the figures a nice battle worn impression.
    The packaging is quite safe as the kits are stored in ziplock-bags within plastic shells that are packed in thin cardboard boxes. The Paladin is an exception as there is no plastic shell to receive the ziplock-bags. Therefore the heavy bags containing the base and the horse left the box during shipment and squeezed their box and another one.
    I am happy with the kits and thank Jose`for his efforts to deliver the products finally. As said the communication about delays could be improved and so I would like to tell others still waiting for their orders that there will be a happy ending.

    Best, Martin
