Nothing at all, they certainly had some very "tugging" stuff, as BP notes, in amongst the more numerous "barbie doll" numbers. 8)

Re: Twelve Apostles

Barry: Hello Michael, please have a read at the battalion pack thread. I am taking orders for them now by email and then sorting out paypal payments afterwards. This is saving time in terms of 'on site' illustrations of the combinations etc. Go by the descriptors in the first post and the pricing I ...

Re: Twelve Apostles

Well I better keep buying them then! Same here. I have to confess to slacking off a bit due to Ebor purchases and more-so awaiting the Battalion Pack offerings. Would that it were the early 00s when my spending was almost scandalous. :roll: Now in the unstable 10s things are a bit different. Good n...

This was a battle between the Swedes and a combined army of Russians and Saxons. Here’s a link to the game pics - enjoy: Grea...

Re: SALUTE: WAS IT JUST ME OR.....

My God Ray, you do look different, but then again so does Barry must have been the lighting...NOT!!! :lol: Here I was ruing the 6,000 miles (and airfare) very strongly mitigating against "dropping in" for a look. After Barry's exasperation, which I would fully share, now I don't know. :shock: Howev...

Re: At last, at last.. the Horse!

Clibanarium has really done a great job on these. Amen to that (cue: standing ovation)... I think MOST troopers would look more like this and less like the fully equipped drawings you see in most books. These men would be infrequently paid, mostly illiterate, poor and generally not the swankiest fo...
