Order for 6mm. Finally!

Well hoorah for the good guys! That's me by the way. I finally got my latest order for Adler (http://home.clara.net/adlermin/Napoleonicpages/dwfrench1812-15.html) organised. Had a mate go into it as well and when all was said and done we got about 165 pounds worth. Now this would normally attract about 30% shipping so we decided to push it up to 200 pounds to get the reduction in shipping, effectively making the final 30 pounds or so free. This is the largest order I have ever placed for this hobby. Scary stuff!

But exciting. I have ordered the full compliment of figures to build the Prussian Guard that was in Berlin for the Waterloo campaign. The best I could find was a link which I cannot find again but which I copied into Word.

All that on top of my order last week for 20mm Modern Australian soldiers and Bushmasters from WarTime Miniatures at http://www.wartimeminiatures.com.au/index.php



Can't wait to get them either.

So a busy few months coming up.
